The PR MaxiCourse is nothing short of life changing. The course and exposure to NIRISAB concepts has forever changed my treatment philosophy as a practitioner. I am forever indebted to Dr. Tatum and Dr. Pedroza for mentoring me and showing me oral implantology as it should be.

There is no program out there aside from a full time surgical residency program that will challenge your ideas about surgery and treatment and completely change how you approach these like the PR MaxiCourse will. The amount that you will experience and learn here is immensurable and you will take back a philosophy of treatment that you will hold on to for your career.

Prior to attending this MaxiCourse , I planned to learn about how to place implants in complicated patients. I have learned more about not only implants but medications, treatment planning, bone and tissue healing, that I could have imagined. Most of all, I have seen the potential for treating patients that may have previously been considered unrestorable.

I just want to say, thank you, Dr. Tatum, Dr. Pedroza, Miriam and everyone for setting up an awesome program. These have been an incredible ten months experience. I have learned to help many patients because of this program.

I cannot say enough about the Puerto Rico MaxiCourse and Clinical Residency in Implant Dentistry! There is nothing surgically that I do the same as a year ago. We treatment plan differently, we execute surgeries differently. We see solutions for patients now where before we only saw impossible situations. I have been to other MaxiCourses, they were great. But nothing like this. Unbelievable! Thanks, Dr. Tatum, Dr. Pedroza and Miriam!
— Dr. Henry Long
I had over 1000 hours of continuing education units in implant dentistry when I came here. There is absolutely no training like this in the world. It is eye opening and life changing. It is for tough people. In Puerto Rico you work hard, stay late, but don’t want to leave. Dr. Pedroza and Dr. Tatum truly mentor you and actually answer the phone when you call. This is a residency and I am forever in debt to Puerto Rico. Long live the program!
