Pankey Institute


for advanced dental education 

The Best Source for helping dentists flourish amid 
the challenges of contemporary 
practice through enhancement 
of technical skills, improvement 
of managerial and behavioral skills, 
and nurturing a positive philosophy 
toward life and practice. 
I was very fortunate that the Pankey Institute opened shortly after I began practice and I credit the Institute for making me the kind of Dentist that I am today. I was fortunate to take L.D. Pankey's Philosophy course from him on 3 occasions and to take the last Seminar For Occlusal Studies that was offered. I completed the first set of continuum courses that was offered by the institute. Participating in the second C-1, and the first C-2, (a 2nd new C-2), C-3, C-4, C-5, C-6 and C-7. The strength of the institute is that courses in the continuum have been continually upgraded and improved to reflect the changes that have taken place in Dentistry.
