Koray’s course was a fantastically laid out course. It is a game changer in the way the three days are structured. I cannot recommend this course enough. The small groups make it an intimate learning experience which is rare in today’s courses. Koray was approachable throughout and answered and clarified it all. Abbad and Sarah were excellent and top of their field and made the day even more relevant. Their teaching methods are brilliant and especially anatomy and complications were exquisite, The hands-on cadaver aspect of the course was really exceptional. The one-to-one approach from all clinicians was great. Koray was there every step of the way to advise and guide. He answered all questions to ensure maximum understanding. Koray is full of knowledge and even discussing all aspects of dentistry business gave a great insight over the three days. A big shout out to all of Koray’s team. Sarah was excellent throughout the days organising and ensuring we were all up to date, lunch and dinner were served and showed and guided us every step of the way. Koray’s nurses were excellent assisting us over the three days. You can understand the success of LCIAD. Keep up the great work!! And hats off to you all.
Dr Mahomed Issa (2023)
Koray’s attention to detail is exactly why I enrolled on this course and it did not disappoint! I have come away from this course feeling very comfortable with the planning, execution and management of complications in relation to sinus surgery. A truly memorable course that has energised my passion for comprehensive dentistry further.
Dr Steve Conteh (2023)
After hearing good things about the course, I am extremely pleased I decided to register. The course tutors are experienced and experienced clinicians; with the added bonus of being very open and approachable. The course material and structre was excellent, with a good balance of evidence based research, hands-on practical and live demonstration. In addition Dr Feran’s team were very helpful and supportive throughout the course. I highly recommend the course for surgeons looking to add sinus augmentation to their skill set.
Dr Johnny Stroud (2023)
This course has been amazing and very helpful. Made me understand and feel equipped to carry out sinus lifts. I did my first a couple of weeks after the course and felt so much more at ease knowing how to treatment plan it, but more importantly how to problem solve on my own as well!
Dr Damaris Santander (Day 3, 2023)
I just want to publicly thank Koray Feran for putting on one of the best courses I have ever been on! I came back yesterday evening absolutely buzzing after 3 days of sinus lifts and bone augmentation – what a course it was! He took us through the evidence-based theory on day one, we put the skills into practice on human cadavers on day 2 and saw Koray perform a sinus lift live on a patient on day three. Anybody wishing to take their implant career to the next level really needs to do this course!
Dr Ricky Ruparelia (2022)
Very well organised and great course content! Very useful cadaver day with great feedback and plenty of materials to practice with.
Dr Damaris Santander (Day 1 & 2, 2022)
The best sinus course available in the UK, period!
Dr Aitazaz Ali Baloch (2019)
Very well planned, co-ordinated and executed course. Along with the tutors, Julia was very nice and so were the nurses. All other supporting staff were also helpful. I would have loved to spend more time practising on cadaver heads.
Dr Kshitij Sharan (2019)
Really happy I chose this course over a competitors. Very useful ENT insight into sinus lifts and how they deal with dental complications. I would highly recommend this course for a broad understanding of sinus lifts, bone grafting, materials, hands-on cadaver experience and dealing with complications.
Dr Neha Khade (2019)
An excellent course with so much information. The trainers were amazing, very easy to learn from. A course that provides cadaver experience, live surgery, lectures from 4 specialists it absolutely has it all. Definitely gives us loads of confidence. We never felt rushed & the passion they have clearly shows.
Dr Rahul Nehra (2019)
This has been the most inspiring course I attended in the last 7 years. This is going to change my practice and stop referring patients out. Thank you very much Koray.
Dr Santanu Chatterjee (2019)
Really enjoyable course; team and the speakers are very supportive and small groups mean you receive a lot of attention during hands on day on cadavers. Lecturers were very informative with up-to-date literature and covered a wide breadth of material surrounding sinus bone graft surgery. Very well recommended!
Dr Milan Damani (2019)
Great experience to work on cadavers. Really excited! All necessary information given and explained. It is an excellent start for developing of surgical skills for beginners.
Dr Elena Tuma (2019)
Overall an excellent and well co-ordinated course with valuable input from experts in their fields. The surgical experience gained from training on cadavers is second to none and applicable to clinical practice, well supported by the latest evidence based lecture materials.
Dr Peter Kennyon (2018)
Thank you very much for the whole experience. It was one of the best courses I have ever gone to. Great way of teaching. I feel that I’ve learned a lot and I cannot wait to put it into practice. Thank you again.
Dr Aniko Lazar (2018)
I would strongly recommend this cadaveric sinus grafting and bone augmentation course to any clinician who would like to take their knowledge and clinical skills to the next level. All 4 lecturers met the learning objectives in a very effective and professional way.
Dr Alexandros Nikolaou (2018)
Excellent course. Covered everything I wanted and more. The hands-on element was fantastic. Would definitely recommend.
Dr Brad Thornton (2018)
Fantastic course. Was recommended to me and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommended to anyone wanting to learn about sinus augmentation and other bone grafting techniques. The presentation of information was put forward in a logical way, backed up with evidence. To be able to practice these new techniques on cadavers has given me the confidence to be able to apply these skills in practice.
Dr Christopher Hanford (2017)
The course was very informative and the cadaver training has given me sufficient confidence to start doing sinus lift procedures in practice. I would thoroughly recommend the course to any practitioners wanting to start doing advanced implant techniques such as sinus lifts and block grafts.
Dr Ediz Cakin (2017)
I cannot recommend enough this excellent course. Both tutors are exceptions and carry immense knowledge and experience and are also able to pass this to the delegates with an amazing teaching attitude. It is a ‘MUST’ course for both the beginner and experienced implantologist. I will be coming back soon for a refresher.
Dr George Margaritis (2017)
I would highly recommend this course to colleagues in the future. Having completed the intensive 3 day programme I have gained so much knowledge through the lectures, cadaveric surgery and live surgery. This has certainly given me the confidence to carry out advanced implant sinus augmentations and block grafts in my own practice setting.
Dr Imran Nasser (2017)
Thoroughly enjoyable 3 days. Very high level of knowledge imparted backed up by lots of citations. Hands on was invaluable and will give me the confidence to start doing sinus augmentation. This course has also helped to clarify the relative merits of different bone augmentation protocols in various situations. My only wish would be more hands on / surgery. Top marks to all involved.
Dr Matt Lawler (2017)
Fantastic course providing knowledge, motivation and the actual practice needed in order to move from theory to your office with confidence and safety. Very well wrapped up 3days of training by two very skilled surgeons.
Dr Orestis Angeletos-Paparizos (2017)
I have really enjoyed the course and will definitely recommend this to my friends. The course lectures were very comprehensive and very well presented in a very interesting way. The practical session on the cadaveric specimens really helped me to understand the principles and clinical delicacy required for sinus lifting procedures. My understanding of the subject has been greatly deepened and I would feel confident in carrying out the procedure…overall a fantastic and informative course and well worth the outlay.
Dr Mark Jensen (2016
This course has demystified open sinus lifts for me. Lectures excellent, cadaver dissection extremely useful, great live surgery and discussion. Great hospitality from the team throughout.
Dr Ray McNamara (2016)
Probably the best course I have ever been on. Well organised, good venues,
great practical session, very informative and completely relevant to my practice. I would definitely recommend this course.
Dr Cathy Jenkins (2016)
I would just like to pass on my thanks for arranging such a great course. The venue was fantastic. Those delivering the content were enthusiastic, friendly and approachable and clearly had extensive knowledge and experience of implant
provision. I left the course feeling inspired and ready to put into practice some of the skills learned. I will thoroughly recommend any event organised by your team to practitioners who are considering further education in the field of implant dentistry.
Dr Paul Hudson (2016)
Could I also say how impressed and pleased I was with your course. The combination of lectures, practical and live surgery were extremely well thought out and delivered. It was great that you were prepared to share all your hard-gained knowledge so generously, even extending to showing us your successes and failures with free and frank discussion about what you actually did to solve the problems involved.
Dr Michael Atkinson (2016)
In my career spanning 34 years, I can say with conviction that I can hardly recall a few that were as good and of a high standard as the one you have just done.
Dr Vasant Patel (2016)
I would like to send my thanks and congratulations on a most wonderful course.
It is rare that I leave a course with such a gain in knowledge and can honestly say that it is the only course that I have ever attended that has left me with a completely new attitude and enthusiasm toward dentistry.
Dr Jeremy Hill (2016)
An absolutely brilliant course. My only regret was not doing it years ago. Koray Feran is a skilled clinician and lecturer with the ability to make a complex subject easy to get a handle on and fun. Being able to practice the techniques we learnt on a cadaver was essential. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone serious about doing implants.
Dr Clare Hartley (2015)
A fantastic course, intense and exhilarating!! A good balance of theory, evidence and practical skills. Following the course I feel appreciated and trained to offer treatment and undertake procedures for my patients. Great facilities and knowledge from the trainers and faculty.
Dr Matt Garnett (2015)
Great course for practitioner with experience in implant dentistry wanting to further advance their skills. Feel more confident regarding the treatment options that I can discuss with and provide to my patients.
Dr Michael Koukoulis (2015)
The course has covered all of the topics mentioned in the aims. The quality of lecturing was superb with many references to up-to-date evidence base. The cadaver session was also of a very high quality. I was very impressed by the quality of the cadavers. They were extremely like-like and enabled me to perform the procedures with hands on practice. I would certainly recommend this course to anyone who wants to improve their understand of the maxillary sinus and sinus lift techniques. Thank you.
