Florida National University Alumni Turns American Dental Dream into American Legacy

Florida National University (FNU) Alumni, Dr. German L. Muria develops a dental tool, the "Drill Driver" to improve oral surgery procedures. The hand tool that Dr. Muria developed has no electric motors. It is designed to take the cells that are lost in the implantation process and put them back into the body, as well as help preserve the bone. He has four patents on this tool that are related to the procedure and hand tool.

Dr. Murias explains how he came up with the inspiration with the design of his 4 patents.

“I was in the middle of a surgery and I needed an instrument that would fit a very small space and could not find one, so I went to my lab and designed an instrument to what I needed and that’s how the Drill Driver was born.”

Dr. Murias attended Dental School in the Dominican Republic after graduating from FNU, and upon returning to the states, he felt his training was not complete. He applied to a specialized Implant training course at Harvard School of Dental Medicine and was accepted.

“This training really prepared me in all major disciplines in the dental field and made me into the professional I am today,” explained Murias.

Dr. Murias has three sons. His oldest, German Jose is in commercial arts. His middle son Eric is also a dentist, a graduate of New York University School of Dentistry, and is in private practice with his father. His youngest son, Frank Joseph is earning a Master of Science degree at Barry University, and has been interviewed at various dental schools for entrance this summer.

When asked of the success of his children, Dr. Murias replied, “They’re doing what they’ve seen all of their lives. My wife and I are both great advocates for education. At home I am always learning and studying new techniques in this rapidly evolving field. When your children see you doing this every day, they follow your example.”

Dr. German L Murias is the very epitome of the American dream. He has been a practicing dentist for 28 years. From his humble beginning when the late Dr. Jose Regueiro of FNU met Dr. Murias, he ignited a fire and a passion for the field of Dental Laboratory work that would carry him to this present day where he works as a successful dentist in his own practice and runs his own private Dental Laboratory.

“For me, it was love at first sight. When I saw the students at the school doing the work, I just wanted to get in there and do it myself. It was like a magnet. It was right at that moment that I knew I wanted to do.” Dr. Murias said.

To this day, he proudly displays his FNU dental technician certificate, which he earned under Dr.Regueiro’s guidance. He even recalls from memory the exact month and year: August 25, 1978.

The late Jose Regueiro left an important impression on Dr. Murias.

“He was really very nice, he was an inspiration.” Dr. Murias said. He had the same passion and loved what he did, and that’s the key. He had that fire inside of him, and he couldn’t hold it in. He had to give it to others. He saw that in me, and he helped me.”

Dr. Murias has great passion for his profession, and offers the advice that “you have to have passion and believe in life” and that “whatever field you pick, strive to be the best you can be. Love it and never stop learning. You can’t do it for the money. You have to do it because you love it, and that is the key to success.” Dr. Murias continues to inspire others as a clinical professor of Dentistry at the University of Florida, training foreign doctors to prepare for the dental field in the United States.
