Will there be live and actual demonstration on this DESC training program?
Yes, there is an available option for you to register and enroll for a workshop and this will be scheduled accordingly depending on the package you purchased. You will be notified via email on the schedule of your workshop.
The workshop is done by schedule, how does it work?
Yes, the workshop is done by schedule basis because the mentor of this DESC program is from London and we can only handle up to maximum of 30 students per workshop so all the students can be guided well by the mentor during this event. We want to make sure that your financial and time investment with us on this program will be worth it.
When you order any parts or complete part of this DESC program which includes workshop or if standalone, then, you have two choices which one you prefer to register on.
1. Current Scheduled Workshop - this means a confirmed and current schedule has been established already by DMD cEnter with the mentor, so, if this occurs, this will be available for 30 Participants only. First to enroll first served.
2. Pre-Order Scheduled Workshop - if all goes well, the schedule of the workshop will happen quarterly. This means you are willing to wait until the schedule comes next quarter. As per mentioned, only 30 participants will be able to join, thus, this will be based on the date the participant paid for their program. If you are #31 on the list, you need to wait again for the next schedule. That's why it is pertinent you enroll as earlier as possible if you want to make sure you will be part on the next coming workshop schedule. The advantage of this is because you are ordering ahead of time, your registration fee is greatly discounted.
You will be notified via e-mail on your schedule for the workshop.
Will I get a CPD units if I take this class?
There will be some classes that may offer CPD units and others don’t depending on the situation. On this DESC Program, it is a Yes. However, the CPD units will be applied to the UK Dental Board and will be issued by the Academy of Face Design, a recognized CPD provider in UK. However, there is a waiting time period before this is issued and you have to apply this CPD units once it is issued by AFD in your country under self-directed classification.
DMD cEnter is applying to be a CPD provider, unfortunately, the process in the Philippines involves certain steps that takes time. Having said that, DMD cEnter's target market anyway are professionals who want and are fully focused to hone and/or learn new skills rather than those hang-up in just getting this CPD points. So, we are confident that whether we can provide CPD units or not, the CPD units will be just an added bonus to our students.
Is this a preceptorship?
No. DESC as per what its name stands for, Dental Enhancement Skill Class, is simply that. This is not to give you a Masteral Degree, a PHD or any other certificates you received from available preceptorships offered out there in the market. Its intent is to really improve your skills as dentist and giving you the opportunity to do so at your comfort and convenience. We sometimes find our college days educational era maybe lacking or outdated or those free webinars maybe not really enough to teach you what you need to do these dental techniques, thus, DESC is giving you a training service format to do so.
Will I be able to already do it after attending the course?
No and Yes. There's no simple answer to this because for DMD cEnter we encouraged those who are beginners to do further study on this with the clinical and advance steps before you handle patients. However, for those who are taking this as review and additional knowledge, but, already has experience on it, then, the answer is Yes. DMD cEnter's intent of offering this digital foundation skill training is to build your basic knowledge first and see if this the field you want to pursue. We expect the participants of this skill training to do their diligence in studying the foundation program; do an active participation on the exclusive Facebook Group of Dr. Ivona’s DESC to ask questions and provide information as well as share your opinions with your colleagues on that group and pass the examinations and assignments provided by your mentor. In general, DESC is your initiation to learn or improve what you already know as a dentist. We encourage all dentists to go further in their studies after attending one of DESC’s skill trainings if they want to be a full expert on a specified field of dentistry. After all, at the end of the day, education is a continuous process and great investment to us as professionals and with its proper implementation of what we learn will greatly benefit our patients.
Can I pay installment?
We want to provide one, but, as of the moment No because the process will cost you more due to interest rates. We do suggest you avail it directly with your credit card, if installment is your preference of mode of payment. Having said that, we are taking steps towards the goal of offering one in the future.
Is the price of the program VAT inclusive and do you issue an OR?
On this DESC program, the prices are NOT VAT inclusive and you will receive from us via email a digital receipt immediately after a successful online transaction with confirmed payment. However, if you want a BIR OR, just let us know and we can provide you one. You just need to let us know your TIN #.
Can I request for a refund or cancel it?
For the Lecture Video Courses on this DESC program, unfortunately, "No". This is digital and once a client pays, access is automatically given to the DESC training. One can finish and use the service within a matter of hours or days. Thus, for fairness to DMD cEnter, the speakers and all those who work behind it, once you pay for it might as well just make the most out of it and use it to the fullest extent to benefit your professional practice.
For the workshop, "Yes", BUT, ONLY in the condition that it is DMD cEnter's or Mentor's fault that the schedule of the workshop you are assigned to attend was cancelled by us. Otherwise, the answer is also "No".
Why get this training with DMD cEnter when there are others that offer them cheaper or free?
In a nutshell, DMD cEnter is created for dentists by dentists. We know exactly what you need and even if sometimes you may still find us lacking, we are currently and continuously working to make it better for you.
