MENTORING TESTIMONIALS

 

Misagh was there every step of the way giving me guidance and many little gems of advice on easily the most complex surgical case of my career to date. He did it in a manner that put myself and the patient at ease and gave me the confidence that we were in good hands. From releasing the flap, to contouring and securing the bone block and achieving lovely tension free primary closure I learnt more in 3 hours with Misagh than I could have possibly imagined!

As I progress through various stages of my implant journey I feel extremely lucky and thankful to have Misagh as my tutor and mentor along the way. Misagh has been extremely helpful in assisting me with my treatment planning and mentoring me through my master of science degree in Implantology.
