50 Years Of Dental Continuing Education Excellence

The Pankey Institute was founded in honor of Dr. L.D. Pankey, a visionary who focused his practice and teaching on saving patient's teeth at a time when extraction was the common recommendation. His philosophy and commitment to education inspired dentists to greater career satisfaction and practice success.

"Dr. Pankey's philosophy has changed the lives of over 30,000 dentists since the Institute was founded," said Dr. Lee Ann Brady, Director of Education. "This celebration of his legacy is about every clinician we have educated and all that they have done to transform their practice of dentistry for the benefit of their patients."

Pankey's Impact On The Evolution Of Dentistry

Pankey-trained dentists and faculty have made a significant impact on the field of dentistry. This includes the invention of the "sit down" dental chair, high-volume evacuation system and development of high speed air-driven handpieces. They also participated in time and motion studies that improved dental ergonomics, efficiency and four-handed dentistry. Today Pankey dentists can be found in many significant places of leadership, education and research throughout dentistry.
