We would like to thank you all for the kind hospitality we received during the Prettau live surgery course.

The emphasis was obviously on the full arch Prettau bridge and the Tischler team have this advanced and challenging technique down to a fine art, all of which is provided in a world class

The Live Surgical Prettau course at Tischler Dental was one of the best courses I have been to in a long time. The live patient surgery, the excellent lecture, and the fantastic staff at Tischler Dental made me feel I can go home and start doing Prettau Cases. An all around fantastic course with fantastic people.

Dr. Tischler and Dr. Patch have been able to take a complex technique and simplify the process into straightforward, manageable steps. They have been open to sharing their expertise, strategies, and techniques with me so that I can enhance my skills.
Anytime I have sent an email to Dr. Tischler, he has been quick to respond and offers ongoing support. He genuinely wants me to be successful. Dr. Tischler is willing to disclose his ideas, plans, and methods to assist in my personal growth.
