The Pankey Institute
Founded in Miami, Florida in 1972 by colleagues grateful for Dr. Pankey’s teachings, the original mission to, “narrow the gap between what is known and what is practiced” still holds true today.
Now located in Key Biscayne, Florida, The Pankey Institute is recognized as the preeminent institute for advanced dental postgraduate education.
After studying there for many years, Dr. Lockwood was privileged to be asked to teach at The Pankey Institute. Dentists from around the world travel to The Pankey Institute to develop their knowledge and skills
