AvaDent Digital Dental Solutions announced an employee milestone anniversary. Gerald (Jerry) Gaubert, Implant Specialist at AvaDent, celebrates his 40th year as a Certified Dental Technician this year.
Gaubert, who is certified in both Complete Dentures and Partial Dentures, received his training as a dental laboratory technologist while in the Air Force in Louisiana. Following his military career, Gaubert worked for several years in an in-house prosthodontic laboratory as a well as a large laboratory in Dallas where, representing the only Branemark-certified laboratory at the time, he conducted courses to train dentists on implants. Gaubert also authored a chapter in the book, “Complete Dentures.” In the mid-1980s, he was recruited by the VA Hospital in Dallas to help start its implant work and eventually was transferred to the VA Central Lab, where he worked with VA Hospitals on a national level. Retiring from the VA, Gaubert worked with Clear Choice and a large laboratory in Dallas where he focused on conversions and treatment plans.
Gaubert joined the AvaDent team in May 2013 to head up its Hybrid Denture and other Implant-related workflows. His 40 years as a CDT will be recognized during the International Symposium on Digital Dentures AvaDent is hosting September 23-24 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
