Jim Glidewell was hospitalized for 12 days recently with COVID-19, and he recounted his experience in Chairside Magazine. “The intubation left me depressed, and the drugs administered left me confused,” the founder and CEO of Glidewell Laboratories wrote in an article titled “My Personal Battle With COVID-19.”

During his hospitalization, Glidewell said, he was particularly concerned for the welfare of his wife, Parvina, and their four children, as well as the company he founded 50 years ago, which today is one of the world’s most successful dental laboratories.

“Dentistry has provided me with so much, I can’t simply walk away into some golden notion of retirement. All I can do is try to give back,” Glidewell wrote at the conclusion of his article. “For everything we’ve accomplished, there are so many exciting developments on the horizon. And I feel I owe it to dentists and patients everywhere to see them through.”
