What Others Say About Us
“It’s more than just a bunch of concepts that are being thrown at you. They actually give you a roadmap on how to walk any case through a process that ends up with you being able to treat the case no matter how complicated the case is.”
“I have never been so excited to get to the office to do dentistry as I am right now, because of The Dawson Academy. I have so much more confidence in treating patients.”
“The Dawson Academy curriculum gives you predictability. You have every step laid out in front of you. So if you follow the track, it will work. It doesn’t matter what the conditions are before, the outcome is always going to be predictable, pretty, functional.”
I have more confidence talking with patients about TMJ issues and cosmetic desires. Prior to Dawson, when a patient would come in wanting veneers, I didn’t know exactly what to do with them. Now I know how to treatment plan veneers while paying close attention to occlusion and the joint. It’s so freeing to understand the whole masticatory system.
I have been blessed with many wonderful mentors in my dental career but I can honestly say Dr. Dawson, Dr. Wilkerson, Dr. Cranham and all the other Dawson faculty members have helped me become a more confident and aware dentist. I would like to pass on my most sincere thank you to the Dawson family for helping me solve so many people’s dental problems.
The Dawson Academy has shown how important it is for me to develop the treatment plan, design of the restorations, and communicate that information with my lab technicians.
