“Excellent course! This was a great way to fully utilize my time during this pandemic and learn from one of the best educators in the industry.
Dr. Margeas did a tremendous job in explaining every point in thorough detail while leaving ample time in between to do the hands-on portion.
This was my first time taking the hand-online course and it was totally worth it. You can apply all of the techniques that you learn from this right away and implement it in your practice. I would highly recommend this course for associates who are looking to improve their restorative skills.”
