Dr. Samuel E. Cress

"As a practicing dentist and an educator with the Dick Barnes Group, I have to say that the TMD & Sleep Dentistry Imaging Courses Levels I & II have been the best investment that I have made in my continuing education. The material presented was concise, straight forward and very well organized. I cannot say enough about the course. The volume of information that I have taken away from it and have implemented it into my practice has been astonishing.

Drs. Tamimi and Mardini are incredibly knowledgeable in their field not to mention the gift that they both have in educating others. I walked away with more knowledge in the field of dental radiology and a new interest to study more."

"My CBCT Private session with Dr Tamimi went exceptionally well. She went above and beyond, was very informative and engaging. She gave an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of CBCT imaging including endodontics, implants and dental sleep medicine. She answered all my questions and clarified all doubts. I highly recommend her and the BeamReaders course."
