True Genius

Albert Einstein once said, “the sign of a true genius is the ability to make the complex simple.” That is what Bill did for me. He takes the complex and allows you to use that information first thing on Monday morning. Right from the start, he makes it apparent that you don’t know what you don’t know, but he gives you and your staff the confidence to rise above the rest.

Contagious Excitement

I was drawn to Bill’s course because I could tell he is a dedicated teacher and lifelong learner. He gets the latest gadgets and is always up to date on pharmaceuticals both new and old. Even though he has been in practice for over 30 years he stays on the cutting edge of his specialty. That level of excitement is contagious.

Take Home Lesson

I was sedating a high fear patient. I was able to get to that sweet spot where he was comfortable, eyes closed, good respiration, heart rate, and BP. There was no way I could have done the case smoothly with my old technique. Thank you for giving me invaluable tools, tips and tricks. Without the knowledge you have given me I would not be able to practice at such a high standard. I appreciate everything you have done and continue to do for me. You are a great mentor to me.

Hands-On

If you are looking for a comprehensive approach to dental anesthesia, this is the course to take! Dr. Bill Gottschalk’s combination of didactic and hands-on approach truly allows the sedation dentist to further advance their skills through real-time experience. The training I received has definitely changed the nature in which I practice IV sedation. I highly recommend this course.
