iDD was co-founded by Dr Ahmad and Dr Hamid Al-Hassiny. They run multiple practices in Wellington, New Zealand, including a state-of-the-art 11-chair dental practice. Their philosophy is simple across all the practices; utilize the most advanced dental technology to provide the best patient experience.
Having been to hundreds of courses in the past, Dr. Hamid knows what makes an excellent course and has taken this insight to establish successful hands-on and online-focused digital dentistry and CAD/CAM courses.
