PDL Center is a continuing dental education center offering courses and training for progressive dentists looking to update their knowledge and skills. We provide all the necessary one-on-one mentoring during and after the course to help you master this knowledge and transfer these innovative skills directly into your practice.  For example, you have learned the basic concepts of implant surgery during the course but maybe to not yet have the confidence to go solo on that surgery.  Book your patient at the PDL Center and we will guide you through the process while you gain more surgical experience.  Or maybe you have not yet invested in a CBCT and all of the surgical equipment.  Book time at the PDL Center.  We have everything you need to do the surgery.
