Matt Nehl Mastership

Dr. Matt Nehl earned the distinction of Mastership status from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) on March 26, 2013. Dr. Nehl had previously obtained Fellowship status in 2011 from the ICOI.

The International Congress of Oral Implantologists is a non-profit worldwide dental educational organization. It is dedicated to communicating scientific knowledge and improving the clinical practice of dental implantology.

The awarding of Mastership status is an honor which a professional society such as the ICOI bestows on a dental professional involved in dental implant treatment. The ICOl’s Mastership program encourages active members to achieve their Mastership status through efforts in education, research, and actual clinical experience. Mastership candidates must submit documentation of numerous completed implant cases, letters of recommendation from ICOI Diplomates or Advanced Credential Committees, and must meet continuing education requirements. There are currently 213 dentists of the 25,000 worldwide members and associates of the ICOI that are at the Mastership status.

In addition, Dr. Nehl is a graduate of and has Fellowship status with the Misch International Implant Institute, and has completed over 350 hours of continuing education related to implant dentistry.

Dental implants are the new standard of care for tooth replacement. They are a “man-made root” that bond with healthy bone and provide permanent support for dental crowns and dentures. A missing tooth can be replaced by a dental implant without altering the healthy adjacent teeth. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth and can last a lifetime.

Dr. Matt Nehl is a Belle Fourche native, graduating from Belle Fourche High School in 1995. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Black Hills State University in 2002, and his D.D.S. degree from the University of Nebraska, School of Dentistry, Lincoln, Neb., in 2007, graduating “With Distinction”.

He joined his father, Dr. Mike Nehl, in the practice of dentistry that same year. Dr. Nehl has been married to his wife Sara, a Pierre, native, since 2002. They have three children, Olivia, Mason and Emma.

Dr. Nehl would like to thank his staff and family for supporting him throughout this continuing education process. The staff at Nehl Dental, Inc. has dedicated much time and effort to create a great experience for patients undergoing these procedures.
