You did an absolute stellar day of education for our Midway clients. Learned so much and had a great time!

I have attended two of Ron Kaminer’s programs over the past two years. His programs are very informative for the whole team. Ron speaks on many different products and dental materials. Many of the products helped us in our hygiene and cosmetic dentistry segments of my practice that have had a positive effect on our bottom line. I never felt that he was “selling” us the products that he discusses. I have never seen anyone that had more knowledge about the specific products that were discussed. His speaking style is light and entertaining! I recommend his programs to any professional that wants to take his office to the next level.
Zola A. Makrauer, DMD, MAGD
Thank you for participating in our 2015 RMDC and providing such an outstanding presentation. I reviewed thousands of personal evaluations from our meeting last week and found yours to be among the most favorable, with an overwhelming number of responses at the Very Good to Excellent rating. Some of the written comments included: " great speaker, good looking!". Your lecture clearly helped make our RMDC a success and I thank you again for your efforts in this regard. We hope that we will be able to engage your expertise in the future.
Michael Scheidt, DDS MS Chair RMDC 2015
Your presentation was among the best that we have had in our CE series. The material you presented was different from other “restorative” programs and, as you so rightly said, you wanted to give us something other than a new way to polish Class V composites. I rarely hear any of our doctors say to me that the course was “excellent,” but I did hear that about your presentation. Eleven attendees took the time to submit our written evaluations forms. All agreed or strongly agreed that the program included ideas they wanted to learn and fulfilled their needs at this time; that the program was well planned and the objectives were clearly defined and were met, and that it would be worth their time to attend another similar program.
Judith A. McFadden, D.M.D.
I must say, I've been going to lectures for 20 years and the lecture you gave us on minimally invasive dentistry yesterday was by far the most informative lecture I've been in since dental school. I am looking forward to using a number of the items you spoke of in my practice in the months and years to come.
Dr. Jay Golub, Sunnyside Queens
Ron. Thanks so much for the course. It was great!!!! I wanted you to know that you inspired me on several levels. Today has been the best day that I’ve had in a long time. I feel so confident with the laser. I have done five fillings without anesthesia and scheduled three Maxillary frenectomies over unilateral recession as well as a connective tissue graft. I have so much hope for the future and I really needed it.
Hey guys! I just wanted to drop you all a line to say thanks for the weekend laser course. I'm definitely energized to take it to the next level! I think I may have learned as much about other topics and issues as I did about advanced laser techniques, and I learned a ton of laser techniques! I've been pissing around...trying to find my place in dentistry. What I needed was to meet someone who could show me the way! What a blessing to meet guys who are all willing to share their vision with me! I don't know how other class members respond to your offer to call or write with any questions or concerns...but I'm certainly going to be taking you up on the offer! Thanks again for an eye-opening weekend!
