facultyThe IALD boasts over 50 Certified Instructors, made up of respected dentists and periodontists from across the country. Many run successful private practice practices or are affiliated with renowned universities. To become a Certified Instructor, candidates must undergo a rigorous certification process, including presentation skills training, clinical calibration, and lecture study and delivery tests. Instructors are assigned to attendees with a 1-to-3 ratio and are available for support via phone and email to attendees long after the hands-on, in-person training has concluded.
