TESTIMONIALS

Dr. John Brady Yuba City, CA

“You can walk out of here and say this is something I can do, I am not worried like I was when I first came in. This course is everything I hoped it would be so that I can get out of here and not be like, ‘Wow, this is still to big for me.’ And it isn’t, they have broken it down so simple, makes it easy, everybody can do it. It is a simple technique and very, very safe. It is fantastic.”

Dr. Justin Leath Rochester, MI

“Don’t look anywhere else, this is your place, Western Surgical and Sedation. Heath is a general dentist, he is super friendly and he is on your side. I have taken many courses, people call me a CE junkie, but I have yet to find one better than this!”

Dr. Daniel Binkowski Story City, IA

“If you are not doing wisdom teeth, I would encourage you to come and take this course, because I think you would be surprised what you can do with a little bit of training. A lot of the cases you are sending out you can easily do yourself. The first case they gave me after some instruction I think I did in about half the time I normally do….It has been a great experience, absolutely great!”

Dr. Brent Porter Santa Cruz, CA

“The key reason [I came] was to learn to incorporate a technique that John Wayland has utilized in my office for the past 8 years. To keep it number 1, safe, and just a painless experience for the patient. It is a Course I wish I would have taken 15 years ago. It just delivers a margin of safety that every general dentist with a patient-centered focus worries about. The ability to titrate the individual sedation per patient is wonderful!”

Dr. Nelson Nuñez, Texarkana, TX

“I would say, if you want to learn the right and the safe way to give IV sedation to your patients, understanding the parameters, learning the medication that you are using and how to use them correctly and safely for all your patients; this is the course to take.”t!”

Dr. Josh Rudin Eagle, CO

“I just wanted to thank Heath and John for opening up this fun and exciting avenue for production in my office. I have been doing one Friday of surgeries every other month since October. But demand is growing rapidly, and I may need to figure out how to incorporate it into the daily practice. WSS exceeded all expectations. Thanks guys!”

Dr. Patricia Sharp Juneau, AK

“Dr. Hendrickson and Dr. Wayland are really warm and down to earth practitioners and they never made me feel like I was beneath them. They made me feel like their equal, a colleague. I would describe their teaching methods as simple, I think simple is better. I think clarity is really important when you are doing something new. I traveled 3,000 miles to be here, so I would say, do it! Don’t wait!”

Dr. Glenn Vo Flower Mound, TX

“When I came to this course, my goal was to really clean up my surgical skills. I was already taking wisdom teeth out, but I wanted to go somewhere where I could refine those techniques. Dr Wayland and Dr. Hendrickson have so much experience.. and it was all here in the states. They over exceeded my expectations!”

We would love to hear from you!
