Implant dentistry is rapidly evolving with the development of surgical and prosthetic advances which aim to simplify clinical procedures and integrate digital technology. These techniques ensure higher predictability, greater success, functional longevity and natural esthetics of the implant and its restoration.

This three-day meeting features leaders from various aspects of implant dentistry including diagnosis, treatment planning, hard and soft tissue grafting, implant placement, and implant restoration. New and innovative information will be presented on virtual guided surgery, Cad-Cam generated prosthetics, predictable grafting techniques, and much, much more. The collective goal will be to facilitate achieving surgical, prosthetic and esthetic success in implant dentistry.

Join us in Toronto and experience an outstanding offering of comprehensive implant dentistry education.

ICOI Launches www.dentalimplants.com

ICOI is dedicated to fulfilling our mission of educating patients. We have designed www.dentalimplants.com to be a leading source of quality implant education on the world wide web. We have heard the requests of our members and incorporated a feature where patients can search for an ICOI member, view their credential level and even email them directly from our site. Because the educational information on the Members Only area of ICOI’s website www.icoi.org is expanding so rapidly, we have also included a Members Only area on our new www.dentalimplants.com educational website. Your login information for the Members Only area will be the same for both websites. This additional area will allow us to double the educational content we provide for our members online. In addition to webinars, ICOI Concepts and articles, we have also incorporated a Members’ Forum to encourage discussion, camaraderie and hopefully get you real time answers to the implant practice related questions you have. We hope you join in our excitement as we launch this site…we look forward to your feedback, contributions and participation.
