Hands-on Workshop 1

Dr. Peter S. Wöhrle received his DMD degree «cum laude» and a Master of Medical Sciences in Oral Biology from Harvard University. In addition, Dr. Wöhrle completed the Advanced Education Program in Prosthodontics and the Advanced Education Program in Implant Dentistry at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, and a four-year certified dental technician program in Switzerland.

While at Harvard, he worked with his mentor, Dr. Paul Schnitman, on the groundbreaking concept of immediate loading of Branemark implants. Once in private practice in Newport Beach, California, Dr. Wöhrle applied these principles to the concept of immediate tooth replacement in the aesthetic zone. More recently, Dr. Wöhrle focuses on the development of enhanced implant designs and on improving the digital workflow as it relates to Implant Dentistry.

Dr. Wöhrle is one of few dentists worldwide with formal training in the interrelating areas of implant surgery, implant prosthodontics and implant laboratory technology. His private clinic in Newport Beach, California, is limited to implant and prosthetic dentistry.
