NDP 57: State of Implant Education for General Dentists with Dr. Misagh Habibi

In this week’s episode I had the awesome pleasure of chatting with Dr. Misagh Habibi. Misagh is a dentist in Western Australia with an exclusive focus on implant dentistry. In this interview we cover his journey since dental school and how continuing education has really defined his career. We also discuss the state of implant education for dentists and how the PGCert program that he is running at The Implant Institute is designed to provide a comprehensive option for dentists looking for a deep understanding of implant dentistry.

About Dr. Misagh Habibi:

Dr Misagh Habibi qualified as a dentist from the University of Western Australia in 1999. Subsequently he gained a Graduate Diploma in intravenous sedation and pain control from Sydney University and a Masters degree (MSc) in oral implantology from Goethe University (Frankfurt). He has also been awarded a Fellowship and Board Certified Diplomate Status of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

Dr Habibi is Director of The Implant Institute and Australian Program Director for the PGCert and PGDip programs of the Cambridge Academy of Dental Implantology (UK). He is a Tutor and Supervisor of MSc (Oral Implantology) students for Goethe University Frankfurt. Previously he has served multiple years as Honorary Clinical Consultant and Consultant Sedationist for UWA Dental School/Oral Health Centre of WA. Misagh has been involved in multiple clinical studies and is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Western Australia developing and investigating an innovative biomaterial concept for application in bone grafting and implant dentistry.

Misagh has performed several thousand implant procedures and administered several thousand hours of intravenous sedation. He has experience with multiple implant systems, techniques and hard and soft tissue grafting modalities. Misagh has been running his implantology-focussed clinic for 12 years, which is also an Accredited Academic Clinic of Goethe University’s MOI (MSc) program, and WA’s All On 4 Clinic. Most of his clinical time is dedicated to complex cases, including full arch immediate reconstruction of terminal dentitions and compromised jaws, including conventional (tissue preservation and grafting), All-on-4/All-on-X, and atrophic jaw grafting, zygoma and pterygoid solutions.

Misagh has lectured nationally and internationally for various organisations and brings a diverse implantology experience to his teaching, sharing real life experience rich in clinical cases and illustrations. He believes in a “big picture and small details” philosophy of education which comes across in his interactive and practically oriented courses.
