What Our Customers Say
I for one found them to be very educational – if not at times embarrassingly enlightening.
Furthermore, I would say those of us with an extensive dental working background could use this as much, if not more, than the “greenhorns” on the team. Albeit pretty basic stuff, the modules provided a good “Readers Digest Version” of what we should know out in the field with TSRs and clinical staff.
