Diode Laser Certification​​​ Testimonials

Thank you Chris for hosting such a great workshop.  The speaker Janet Press was amazing!!!  Her knowledge and expertise on the laser was great as expected, however she taught us so much more.  Having the technical skills to use the laser is one thing but we'll never be able to use those skills without being able to communicate the benefits of the laser to our patients. Janet taught us both skills and also gave us the resources to support the information we learned. "

Cheryl Akagi, RDH

"Love the way she lectures and gives us real life examples to help us understand the subject thoroughly.  I feel a lot more confident now. Thanks again."
