The Misch International Implant Institute recently introduced its acclaimed surgical training program at the Glidewell International Technology Center. Continuing the partnership that began earlier this year when the Hahn Tapered Implant was named the Misch Institute’s official dental implant system, the inaugural session featured lectures by Drs. Carl Misch and Randolph Resnik, a live surgical demonstration by Dr. Jack Hahn and the interactive hands-on training for which the institute has become known.

Since its inception in 1984, the Misch Institute has been at the leading edge of education in implant dentistry, training more than 10,000 dentists to surgically place implants through its one-year continuum.

Renowned practitioner, textbook author and Misch Institute founder Dr. Carl Misch noted: “Jim Glidewell’s vision and passion for education and elevating the standard of care is closely aligned with mine and our entire faculty, and his world-class education facility is an ideal venue for our courses.”

Industry-leading dental laboratory and device manufacturer Glidewell Laboratories launched the Hahn Tapered Implant in 2015 in cooperation with practitioner and implant design innovator Dr. Jack Hahn, who taught courses during the formative years of the Misch Institute.

“I am thrilled to rejoin the Misch Institute as a faculty member,” said Hahn, during the inaugural session. “As someone with the utmost respect for what the institute has done to improve the quality and availability of implant dentistry, I am honored that they have chosen my implant system for their unrivaled practitioner education programs.”

Resnik, the Misch Institute’s surgical director and chief of staff, was pleased with the program’s launch.

“Our first course at the Glidewell International Technology Center was truly amazing,” he said. “The center’s state-of-the-art lecture facility, surgical suite for live demonstrations, and educational laboratories for hands-on training allowed the Misch Institute to provide attendees with a comprehensive learning experience.”

The Misch Institute’s progressive, hands-on approach to education is exactly what Glidewell Laboratories President and CEO Jim Glidewell had in mind when he built the Glidewell International Technology Center.

“We are privileged and honored to share a partnership in implant education with the Misch Institute,” he said. “Our goal has always been to expand patient access to high-quality care and, in the world of implant therapy, no one has contributed more to that effort than the Misch Institute.”

While the initial program served as an introduction to patient evaluation, treatment planning and implant placement, future sessions will explore the full range of surgical and prosthetic techniques, considerations and treatment protocols.
