We all learned a lot from Dr. Carl Misch

Today I found out that Dr. Carl Misch had died. It’s been a big loss for the world of Implant Dentistry.

I feel very sad for this because I was with him only a couple of years ago, in Las Vegas, at the ICOI Meeting, and we sat and had a few laughs.

It´s important to say that Dr. Carl Misch was the mind behind contemporary Implant Dentistry, which he authored in 1999 and went on to be translated in several languages, helping many dentists around the world.

I graduated in Implant Dentistry in 1999 and this book was very important for many of the foundations that I still apply today. I remember having dinner with him in Madrid, just the two of us, where he taught me the importance of failure in implant dentistry and how to avoid it.

One of the foundations for my No Half-Smiles philosophy came from the fear of failure in implant dentistry, so his teaching meant a lot to me.

We all learned a great deal with him. May he rest in peace.
