"I particularly liked the fact that the theory & practical sessions of the Conscious Sedation course were conducted in a small group as this encourages everyone to share best practice. Overall, I had an excellent experience and all the credit goes to Mr Roberto Sacco for creating a professional, open, friendly atmosphere. I can’t thank him enough and I would recommend this to others."Justyna Chudzicka, Dental Nurse
