Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, & Miami Dentists
The Pankey Institute is a world renowned dental continuing education school. The Pankey Institute has been training advanced cosmetic dentists for over 35 years; whereas, the Las Vegas Institute (LVI) has only been in existence for 10 years. Some of the top dentists in the world teach at the Pankey Institute. They teach students the latest technological advances in dentistry. Pankey-trained dentists are taught to be patient centered, which means treating patients as individuals, taking the time to carefully listen, and dedicating their efforts to eliminating discomfort (both physically and emotionally). The goal is to provide patients with a lifetime of health, comfort, and beauty with the least possible treatment.Our top cosmetic (Extreme Makeover) dentist, Dr. Charles Nottingham, is a graduate from the Pankey Institute and a member of the LD Pankey Alumni Association.
