Mastering CBCT in Dentistry (ONLINE)

It gives me immense pleasure to express my feedback to the course "Proficiency In CBCT" by Dr. Alok Lathi and IDEC. Being a newcomer in the arena of dento-maxillo-facial radiology this provided me with a boost of confidence. It is composed and implemented with utmost thoroughness and expertise. Being a pre-recorded series of lectures it gave me the liberty to take the course according to my schedule. Watching a recorded module could never have felt like participating in the lecture until now. The depth of the subject, intimidating areas, required consensus and information has been covered in detail and proper citations. I enjoyed the entire experience from basics to clinical cases and would highly recommend it to those who aspire to become proficient in the field of this technology.
