I am currently working my way through the Implant Ninja Online course. Dr. Chicchon has created a digestible and to the point course that takes you on a guided A-Z journey through implant dentistry. Not only is this course practical, the added value of the tips and tricks that Dr. Chicchon describes in his videos is what make this course special. It is these tips and hacks that come from hundreds and hundreds of implant placement that you can’t find in a textbook. Another great value added benefit of this course is the homework assignments. They are designed to get you to actually implement what you are learning and to hold you accountable. Overall, I would recommend this course to anyone who is starting out on their implant journey as it provides a huge return on investment!
