While in dental school he was awarded the National Disaster Medical System Appreciation letter for his efforts during the Oklahoma City Bombing, the Teledyne Removable Prothedontic outstanding student award, the Oral Pathology outstanding student award, and completed a mini-residency in the Advanced Education in General Dentistry department.

Learning didn’t stop after graduating from dental school, Dr. Moody knew that incorporating dental implants into his practice was the right thing to do for his patients. He attended the prestigious Misch International Implant Institute where he was awarded a fellowship and mastership.

Providing quality dental care to rural America is a priority of Dr. Moody’s, he is the owner of Horizon West Dental Group which has multiple locations in western Nebraska providing state of the art dental care with the latest in technology by some of the most highly trained dentists around.

In 2008 Dr. Moody limited his practice to the field of dental implants by opening the first Dental Implant Center in Rapid City South Dakota. 


In this episode, we were live at AAID! Dr. Moody talks about how he got into implant dentistry, practicing with his childhood dentist, and a few of the strangest things he’s seen in his practice.

This superhero helped change lives in rural Nebraska by educating patients on the importance of modern practices. While treating his patients, he discovered that dentures, partials, and bridges were not the best solutions and that dental implants were the way to go.

Lastly, he discusses a few things that hygienists need to know when someone has gotten an implant done by someone else, in order to spot early signs of an implant failure.

Stay tuned until the very end of the podcast for a spicy conversation! Let us know what you peeps think about it.
