Teaching Philosophy
Students understand how passionate and enthusiastic the teacher is about the topic and get stimulated and encouraged to learn with the pleasant learning environment that is created. As a new topic is presented, clinical images and videos are introduced, that will link the concepts to clinical practice. Teaching a practical course, where students must learn, master, and perform precise tasks using fine hand skills in a short period of time is not an easy job. Dr Reis uses live demonstrations to help students understand and start using the concepts that have just been taught. Not all students will progress at the same pace, but Dr Reis wants each and every one of them to succeed.
