Solid foundations and academic journey 

Dr Gluckman is an internationally renowned dental practitioner, implantologist, author and lecturer who has been in the industry for nearly three decades. After completing his dental training at the University of Witwatersrand in 1990, he spent a few years in general practice before taking on a four-year degree in Oral Medicine and Periodontics at the University of Stellenbosch, which he completed with Distinction (Cum Laude). Eager to shape the industry and help others expand their knowledge, Dr Gluckman became instrumental in the development of the University of Stellenbosch and the University of the Western Cape’s postgraduate Implantology Diploma. 

Not one to rest on his laurels, Dr Gluckman recently completed his PhD titled “Partial Extraction Therapy: Past, Present and Future” (Summa Cum Laude) at the University of Szeged in Hungary, under the supervision of Professor Katalin Nagy. Findings and insights from his PhD are included in two chapters, which Dr Gluckman co-wrote with Dr Rick Miron, in Platelet Rich Fibrin in Regenerative Dentistry: Biological Background and Clinical Indications and Next-Generation Biomaterials for Bone and Periodontal Regeneration. 

A passion for implant training and enhancing the talents of dental professionals across the world 

In addition to running his full-time private practice in Cape Town, Dr Gluckman is also the co-founder and director of the Implant and Aesthetic Academy (IAA). To date, it’s the only private postgraduate training facility of its kind. Over the last 15 years, the Implant and Aesthetic Academy has grown to become an internationally renowned institution that offers various accredited postgraduate dental courses throughout the year. What’s more, The IAA is recognised by the Stoneybrook University and the Dentalxp as an accredited training facility for their online externship certificate programmes. He also serves as one of the IAA’s senior lecturers. 

Expertise and special interests 

Dr Gluckman specialises in immediate implant placement/immediate load, soft tissue aesthetics and periodontal plastic surgery. He also has a special interest in autogenous bone augmentation, especially bone harvested from the palate (a new technique that was published on by Dr Gluckman in 2015), and three-dimensional bone augmentation. Furthermore, he is an expert in and thought-leader on Partial Extraction Therapy, including Socket Shield, Pontic Shield (a procedure he developed and published on in 2016) and Submerged Root Technique (the topic for which he achieved his PhD).
