Each module is referenced beautifully in Dr. Tai's text and also the attached pdf's were much appreciated. I also particularly enjoyed the ClinCheck sessions and found them most informative. I cannot recommend this Mini residency enough. A must for anyone wanting to incorporate Invisalign into their practice.
