Vincent Mayher, DMD, MAGD, Haddonfield, NJ. - President, Academy of General Dentistry, 2007
"Dr. John DiPonziano epitomizes the qualities of the ideal dental educator. He delivers years of experience, in the placement and restoration of dental implants, in a clear and concise manner that is relevant to both new and experienced practitioners. Yet, on Monday morning, he is "hands-on" in the office treating patients. John doesn't just teach it, he lives it."
Khazzandra Miranda, DMD, Livermore, CA

I would recommend his courses to anyone who wants to learn about implants."
"In the last 44 years, I've taken more than my share of continuing education. Dr. John DiPonziano is simply the best I've heard. He makes the hugely complex and infinitely subtle subject of Dental Implants very accessible and easily understood. He takes you inside the techniques to show the small steps required to get the best results. Dr. DiPonziano does implants from placement to prosthetics with a laboratory technician’s eye. He knows how to integrate the steps so the whole team can get the best outcome."
Angela Leung, DDS, San Francisco, CA. - Endodontics/Implantology

His meticulous attention to detail and tremendous clinical knowledge of implant dentistry, along with his passion for excellence and compassion for patient care is extraordinary."
Richard J. Ringrose, DDS, MAGD, FICOI, Clearlake, CA. - CAGD Past President; Founder & Chair, CAGD MasterTrack

He is one of the most popular speakers, a favorite of the doctors in our Master Track program where he has helped and encouraged them to place and restore implants."

"Dr. DiPonziano is an amazing educator! His clinical skills in implant prosthodontics and surgery are comprehensive, and he speaks from extensive experience. His lectures are entertaining, very well-organized, and packed with applicable, useful information.

If you want more confidence in implant dentistry, learn from Dr. DiPonziano!"
Darrell S. Chun, DDS, Elk Grove, CA
"In 2010 - 2011, I participated in two implant continuums at the same time. My time and experience with the program co-directed by Dr. John DiPonziano, however, has benefited me far more in my implant journey. I am continually impressed and thankful that I can count on Dr. DiPonziano to answer my questions and benefit from his mentorship to me as I gain more experience and knowledge in my implant education."
Navin Bogg, MAGD, LLSR, Roselle, NJ. - Past President NJAGD, 2008
"I am a GP and have taken Dr. John DiPonziano’s courses through the AGD Master Track program. I place some of my own implants and restore them…thanks to John. He is always there to help or troubleshoot if I need it. Bottom line: he cares and really wants you to learn the process and prepares you well for it."
Yosh Jefferson, DMD, MAGD, Mt. Holly, NJ. - Past President NJAGD, 1996
"Dr. DiPonziano’s clear, concise, but precise approach to teaching lends well to many of us busy dentists who want to learn without being bogged down with fluff and esoteric dialogue. If you want to learn implant dentistry, then he is the instructor for you. I recommend him highly."
Neil Hulbert, DDS, Reno, NV
"Thank you so much for the great course and effort you put into it. Best four days I’ve spent in dental education, ever!"
Kara S. Yu, DMD, Pleasanton, CA
"Without question, Dr. DiPonziano is the foremost implant dentistry expert in the Bay Area. His vast knowledge in implants is undoubtedly apparent - from treatment planning to the surgical and restorative aspects. His classes and mentorship have greatly advanced my dental career and business."
Namita Dutta, DDS, FAGD, FICOI, San Diego, CA
"Dr. DiPonziano was my lead instructor for a comprehensive implant course that was conducted over a period of several months. He shared his extensive clinical experience with his students in class. This approach was instrumental in giving us confidence to conduct implant procedures independently. I have had the benefit of Dr. DiPonziano being my mentor and guiding me chair-side in my initial implant surgeries. After his course, and mentoring, I have performed scores of implants independently. I will always remain grateful for Dr. DiPonziano’s professionalism and generosity."
Ronald Fair, DDS, MPH, Castro Valley, CA
"Dr. DiPonziano takes scientific principles, applies them surgically and prosthetically, and explains how and when specific materials and techniques should be used. I have gained the confidence, based on his lectures and hands-on experience, to place implants with predictable results."
William N Langstaff, DDS, FAGD, FACD, DICOI, Villa Park, CA. - Past President CAGD, 2010
"Dr. DiPonziano is a wonderful educator filled with an amazing resource of knowledge. He makes learning a fun and rewarding experience and together with a terrific personality, John is a quality educator. His courses, whether lecture or hands-on, are second to none and I recommend him highly."
