Dr. Richard Borgner

Dr. Borgner has been interested in implant dentistry since he was a dental student and asked his instructors what an implant was. The answer, “a dental implant is a piece of metal, that after being placed in the jaw, floats in a sea of pus and must be removed”, only increased his interest in understanding the field. He is an icon in implant dentistry, who has worked closely with Hilt Tatum in developing techniques that have revolutionized the field.
