Passion and belief, Dr. German L. Murias is a dentist behind fpur patents of dentistry tools, one of which is called the Drill Driver.

For a doctor who's devoted to enhancing teeth structure, Murias understands the issues commonly happening in dental clinics. "I needed an instrument that would fit a very small space and could not find one," Murias said via KEYC. He then created a handy instrument that would be useful in a surgical site.

The Drill Driver is an effective tool for implant placement. Dr. Robert Buksch, DMD from Miami, reviewed Murias' invention, stating that it is helpful when dealing with narrow spaces or the root of a tooth.

As a Florida National University alumni, Murias has dedicated his time in dentistry for 28 years. However, it was not hauling for him and even described it as "love at first sight." Dr. Jose Reguiero introduced him to the dental lab, where he's been working most of the time as to this day.

Working as a successful and passionate dentist, the father of three is a clinical professor at the University of Florida. He shares his dentist mastery to foreign doctors who will start dental practice in the U.S.

The FNU alumni has passed down his legacy to his second son, Eric, a New York University graduate majoring in Dentistry, as well as his youngest son, Frank Joseph, who is studying at Barry University.

Murias and his wife claim that they're both keen on their children's education as kids grow up watching his work of art in the dental lab most of the time. The doctor is constantly learning new techniques in dentistry and this has caught his children's eye as they follow his lead.

When reached out for a comment on his useful inventions, Murias gave a simple advice for students. "Love it and never stop learning," he said.
