To advance the art and science of implant dentistry by providing educational opportunities, delivering information to the public and practitioner and serving as the credentialing standard for implant dentistry.
Through our educational offerings and credentialing program, we provide valuable expertise in the field of oral implantologyÛexpertise that ultimately benefits the patients dentists serve. If you are a patient interested in dental implants, I encourage you to visit our Find a Dentist section.
Having entered the 21st century, there has never been a more exciting time in implant dentistry. The advances in technology and techniques that have occurred, and those we are currently exploring, are making implant dentistry more sophisticated and successful, bringing it to the forefront of the dental field.
