This training must be certified but does not necessarily have to be provided by the Resusitation Council.

Dr. Anne O'Donnell's Testimonial

Monday, May 15, 2006

Dr. Anne O'Donnell travelled across from Wexford in Ireland with her two dental nurses. As a result of her visit to us in Newbury and the one day Hands-on RA training course she attended, we are now working together to arrange for a similar course to be run in Ireland. This is what she said about her day with us.

"Dear Richard,

Many thanks for your email but more especially thank you for a superb day on Saturday. I have attended lots of courses but I would have to say that your course was one of the best because of your philosophy and approach to dentistry and patients. I would hope that I have a similar approach but unfortunately haven't had the added benefit of RA for the last 22 years but will have for the remainder of my career!!!. As I said to you on Saturday you are a true ambassador for the profession and it would be nice if more of our profession emulated you. Ann Marie & Sinead also really enjoyed the day and are fired with enthusiasm now for RA...… "
