Many general dentists enter practice feeling ill-prepared to perform surgical procedures. Without the right training and encouragement, that may never change throughout their careers. The Rasner Institute was founded in 2016 to provide an environment that meets each doctor where they are in their surgical journey. We believe hands-on practice with live patients promotes confidence and retention. We select appropriate cases to foster each individual’s growth as a surgeon.
