Misch International Implant Institute and Glidewell Laboratories Announce Educational Partnership

The Misch Institute to use the Hahn™ Tapered Implant exclusively in its courses, with all West Coast programs relocating to the Glidewell International Technology Center.

​​​​The Misch International Implant Institute and Glidewell Laboratories announced today a partnership in continuing education that will introduce the Hahn™ Tapered Implant as the exclusive dental implant system used in the institute’s courses. As part of this collaboration, the Misch Institute will relocate its West Coast programs to the Glidewell International Technology Center in Newport Beach, California.

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. The institute was founded by Dr. Carl Misch, renowned practitioner and educator who authored the indispensable textbook, “Contemporary Implant Dentistry.” Offering a one-year continuum in implant education, the Misch Institute has strived to elevate the standard of care through its groundbreaking courses, which were the first to offer supervised, hands-on training outside of postgraduate specialty programs.

Glidewell Laboratories launched the Hahn Tapered Implant in 2015 in cooperation with clinician and innovator Dr. Jack Hahn, who oversaw the development of the new implant system. As recently noted by Dr. Misch, “the Hahn Tapered Implant is a great fit for the institute, as its design is based on Dr. Hahn’s 40-years-plus of clinical experience.” Dr. Hahn taught courses during the formative years of the Misch Institute and, as part of this collaboration, will return as an institute faculty member.

Ideal for hands-on workshops and live surgical demonstrations, the Glidewell International Technology Center is a welcome addition to the Misch Institute’s programs in Michigan and Florida. “I am very excited about the partnership with Glidewell Laboratories,” Dr. Misch continued. “Jim Glidewell’s vision and passion for education is closely aligned with the Misch Institute and our entire faculty, and his state-of-the-art education facility is the perfect West Coast venue for our courses.”

Glidewell Laboratories, which has made teaching general dentists to place implants a cornerstone of its continuing education efforts, is equally enthused with the partnership. “The Misch Institute is the premier implant training program in the world today,” said Dave Casper, president of Prismatik Dentalcraft, the manufacturing division of Glidewell Laboratories that produces the Hahn Tapered Implant. “Their science-based approach, complemented by a curriculum that continues to build on each attendee’s experience, is exactly the right model for doctors who want to get started placing implants today.”

The Hahn Tapered Implant was developed by Dr. Hahn to simplify treatment and make implant therapy accessible to as many dentists as possible. With its blend of time-tested features and contemporary design, the implant system provides a comprehensive treatment solution for all clinical indications and a streamlined surgical protocol.
