Mitch Hurst was exposed to the world of dentistry at an early age. Dentistry has been in the Hurst family for three generations. Mitch’s grandfather was a dentist, as is his uncle, and Mitch’s father is a ceramist. All three men mentored Mitch, giving him a broad and deep appreciation of not only the intricacies and nuances of the ceramist profession, but also an understanding of the dentist’s perspective and his patients’ needs. It’s this approach that has defined Mitch Hurst as a professional and a person.
Mitch founded his dental studio in 2007, and through a commitment to precision and communication quickly established himself as one of the premier cosmetic ceramists in Idaho. Through his training with his father and uncle, Mitch was exposed early on to complex dental cases. After being involved in all aspects of dental cases, Mitch found he was good at, and enjoys, the challenges of large complex, reconstructive and cosmetic cases. Dentists take solace in knowing that Mitch and his team will be the solution to any issue a patient may present. Mitch also has a broad understanding of the importance of photography, which makes a big difference when communicating visual concepts to dentists and patients. This is critical information necessary for Mitch and his team to accurately produce functional and aesthetic restorations.
In 2006, Mitch became a Certified Dental Technician (CDT), specializing in Ceramics. Mitch is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), attends meetings annually and is currently working on accredited status. He attends an accelerated level of industry seminars, demonstrating his commitment to new and up-and-coming techniques and materials.
In 2013 Mitch was invited to become a member of the Dental Technicians Guild. An international group of leading dental professionals, that excel in their area of expertise and are dedicated to providing the highest quality of dentistry. In the beginning of 2014 he was asked to become a Dental Laboratory Key Opinion Leader for GC America.
