"Matthew Holyoak is a fantastic teacher and mentor with a unique presentation style. His Contemporary Restorative Course has changed the way in which I myself approach and deliver clinical dentistry.  Since completing the course, I have found that I enjoy my work more and have developed the confidence and skills to provide a much higher quality of care. My private cases and income have subsequently increased and I feel more rounded as a clinician."

George Kokosis

"I really enjoyed the content and learned a lot of practical skills and tips. After completing each training day I gained more and more confidence in providing patients with private treatments. Matthew is an easy going person and always ready to help with advice on clinical cases. He has extensive clinical experience and knowledge of modern dentistry. We had a representative from Kulzer who was able to help and guide us on how to use, polish composites to get excellent clinical result. Now I know how to deal with more complex clinical cases, feeling confident to take them on rather than to refer to someone else. I would highly recommend this course to any dentist who wishes to upgrade their clinical skills and to be able to provide patients with a better standard of care."
