The ITI further expands its university-based course program

The International Team for Implantology (ITI), a leading academic organization dedicated to the promotion of evidence-based education and research in the field of implant dentistry, announced the opening of its eighth Center of Excellence at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) in 2017.

As part of the ITI University Programs, selected academic institutions around the world offer 4- to 7-day continuing education courses in implant dentistry, known as ITI Education Weeks. These courses give practitioners the opportunity to advance their theoretical and practical knowledge and skills in implant-related treatment and learn from experts in the field. Each ITI Education Week offers continuing education (CE) credits.

The Center of Excellence will be based at QMUL's Centre for Oral Clinical Research at the Institute of Dentistry. QMUL's Institute of Dentistry has a well-established track record for high quality continuing education courses at its state-of-the-art facilities. Apart from these outstanding facilities, it is the Institute's faculty, made up of top experts in the field of implant dentistry, that makes the institution the perfect partner for the ITI. The ITI Education Week London, primarily aimed at advanced implant dentistry professionals, will be directed by Prof. Nikolaos Donos, Head of the Centre for Oral Clinical Research and Professor for Periodontology and Implant Dentistry. Its focus will be on soft tissue management, anterior aesthetics as well as the treatment of peri-implantitis. The first ITI Education Week at Queen Mary University will take place in 2017.

Until 2013, the ITI ran ITI Education Weeks headed up by Prof. Nikolaos Donos at the Eastman Dental Institute of the University College London. "We are more than happy that, after a three-year break, Prof. Donos will again be offering an ITI Education Week in London", said Prof. Daniel Wismeijer, Chair of the ITI Education Committee. "We are convinced that the new course to be held at Queen Mary University will complement our existing course program perfectly and further contribute to the success of our ITI University Programs."
