What Our Students Say

“I can't recommend the TA course enough. I never enjoyed restorative dentistry very much. Monik changed my attitude completely! He managed to show me a different, more enjoyable and creative side of it. From start to finish Monik puts 100% in his teaching. He doesn't want you just to"attend" the course. He wants to help each and every delegate to become the best they can be and even more!”

Dr Liliya Ekova

“What Tom Ford has brought to fashion is the equivalent of what Monik Vasant has brought to dentistry, pure class! Thank you Monik for your whole hearted efforts over this brilliant year and ensuring that we all succeed in our career.”

Dr Aamir Vaghela

“TA changed every aspect of my practice- for the better. I know more, I know how to assess better, plan better, advise better. The change improved my work, notes, communication, quality, restorative longevity. It puts you in a new level. I'm glad I just went for it without ruminating whether it was worth it. TC was great, TA was the switch from average to the next league. I commend Monik and his great team on his teaching, preparation, research and above all encouragement to practice the type of dentistry I want to do.”

Dr Richard Ellingham

“I first attended the Totally Composite course which itself changed my restorative dentistry. Then I got on the Totally Aesthetic course which was a game changer. Very well structured, comprehensive and superbly delivered by Monik and his team. It is a definitive must for all dentists wanting to raise their game. No matter what age.”

Dr Reza Aria

“The Totally Aesthetics programme with Dr Monik was the absolute game changer to my dentistry. My skill set and treatment planning ability has evolved so much in the last 12 months that I cannot recommend this course enough. Anyone that wants to take their dentistry to the next level, become competent in every domain of minimally invasive dentistry should do this programme. Hands down one of the most clinically relevant courses out there!”

Dr Sita Madan

One of the nicest and most down to earth presenters I have ever seen. It was a perfect course, enough content and a lot of things to take home and implement immediately. I was really surprised with how much I learnt. It was really fun and I recommend it to all dentists young and old.

Dr Evert Burger

TA was everything I needed to evolve into a more confident aesthetic dentist. It gave me skills, abilities, knowledge and new friends. I can't thank Monik and his team enough.

Dilen Patel

Fantastic course. Monik has completely changed how I approach aesthetic cases and general dentistry. I think the course was perfect for me having not completed any postgraduate training year courses before and filled so many gaps in my teaching after dental school and FD year.

James Wellick

The Totally Aesthetics course really changed how I approached my dentistry. It not only helped improve and shape my knowledge of various aspects of restorative dentistry but gave me the confidence to return to practice and actually put that knowledge into practice with my own patients. Monik is a naturally gifted teacher and I am grateful to him and all the other TA speakers for all their help and guidance over the TA year. I would not hesitate to recommend this course to any dentists out there wanting to take their dentistry to the next level.

Zeeshan Rehman

The course was very extensive and really helped me to gain confidence in offering and completing more advanced restorative and aesthetic treatments.

Charlotte Elspeth Buchanan

A well rounded course which helped me develop the confidence in completing the cases I would usually shy away from. Can't recommend Monik and the team enough! Thank you so much for all the support and banter throughout my journey into becoming a totally aesthetics graduate.

Faizan Ali

What can I say other than a totally career changing, totally amazing, totally unbelievable course which has transformed my day to day practice. Since starting Totally Aesthetics I have started to be able to provide cosmetic dentistry full time and have become a speaker in my own right through the skills and confidence I have gained from the programme. A totally awesome course with the most amazing team and mentor I could ever have asked for.

Jonathan Fitzpatrick

Incredible year of learning. Each day was packed with so much material and learning. Monik is a fantastic teacher and since doing Totally Aesthetics my dentistry has improved massively. If you're looking to upskill in aesthetic dentistry then look no further than this course.

Drew Winstanley

This is without doubt a career changing course. Monik's passion for minimally invasive dentistry and providing the best patient care is reflected in all aspects of this course. I have gained something from each day - which can be used straight away in practice. Going on this course has improved my confidence in all aspects of general dentistry and has allowed me to begin more complex aesthetic treatment safely. Not to mention I have gained friends for life. Thank you to Monik, the Fresh Dental Institute team, and all the lecturers for their hard work - it's been a brilliant year!
