I had wanted to take Dr. Tamimi’s CBCT course for a long time, but hadn’t been able to due to scheduling conflicts. So when I saw that there was an option for a one-on-one, virtual education training with her, I jumped at the opportunity. I thought that it would be a worthwhile experience given her excellent reputation, but it was so much more than that. I got to benefit from her expertise and passion for the subject, while getting all my questions answered, which was perfect. What a treat!
