Various Options to become proficient:

1. Self-Trained

Many choose this option. It is similar to Loupe training - it takes some time to acclimate to the higher magnification.

The Book. We encourage learning from The Dental Microscope which is a 261 page book with training exercises and information on how to utilize microscopy in many different procedures.

2. Spear Education
