Howard Gershman

After graduating from Boston University with a pre-med degree, Howard joined the US Army and took dental tech courses at Fort Sam Houston in Texas. In 1970, he was assigned to the 665th Dental Detachment near Seoul Korea where he spent a year working with Dental officers learning crown, bridge, and denture fabrication.

He was then reassigned to a lab near Munich, Germany where he learned many new techniques from a civilian tech named Sigfrid and got a chance to see most of Europe.

He then returned to the US and completed a Master's course in environmental science at SCSU in 1975.

Howard worked as a dental tech in three labs while taking courses at NYU, Pankey, and Dentsply, becoming proficient in crown and bridge, implants, removables, and achieving CDT status in 1977.

In 1991, Howard started his own full-service lab, White Knight Implants, serving dentists in Southern Connecticut and beyond.

Howard has given numerous seminars with Biomet 3i, Nobel Biocare, Dentsply International, as well as Itero. While White Knight provides a full range of lab services, Howard's personal specialty is with full arch restorations in many innovative styles and materials.

Along with his dedicated team of technicians (some of whom have been with White Knight Implants 20+ years), Howard is proud to serve his clients with exceptional quality, prompt service, and the latest cutting-edge techniques.
