"IF I WON'T put the restoration in my mouth, I won't deliver it to my client or the patient." This is Maged Mohareb's guiding principle, and the one he applies to his quality control responsibilities every day at Glidewell Dental Laboratories in Newport Beach, CA and imparts to the many technicians he teaches in the implant department.
Teaching is his passion and he especially loves mentoring technicians who are just starting out in their careers. "To see trainees grow and progress from entry level to more challenging cases is so rewarding. Even when they're frustrated or think they can't do it, I try to inspire them and tell them if you can be successful in implants, you can do anything," says Mohareb.
A jack of all trades, Mohareb is experienced in ceramics, C&B, implants and removable prosthetics. He graduated from dental technology school in Egypt in 1993 and immigrated to the U.S. about 10 years ago. He misses his family members, who are still in Egypt, and when he came to the U.S, he never imagined he'd work for one of the largest laboratories in the world. But being the dreamer and hard worker that he is, he's fulfilling his goal: to grow as a technician, be successful in the U.S. laboratory field and live the American Dream.
