"The Foundation level is a fantastic way to learn in-depth theory about implant dentistry and to prepare for taking the next step - placing them within your practice. The online platform allows you to progress at your own pace and the hands-on component allows you to familiarize yourself with the restorative aspect of implant dentistry. Following completion of the Foundation level course I was lucky enough to place my first implant under the guidance of an experienced mentor and I feel the ITI Curriculum prepared me well." Meaghan Dickenson, Australia
"I really enjoyed the course and thought the online portion was very informative, detailed and well-structured. In addition, the hands-on component was very personal and efficient, providing me a great opportunity to learn about implant therapy in just a few sessions". Bryson Rominger, USA
“The ITI Curriculum Foundation level provided a perfectly structured approach to planning and treating implant patients. In addition to obligatory lectures I was able to access numerous additional units and explore areas of personal interest. The theoretical course is rounded up with a nice, methodical hands-on part. I was able to practice selecting the appropriate impression and prosthodontic parts as well as introducing, replacing and maintaining them. All in all the ITI Curriculum is a really useful course for anyone who is looking to start practicing implant dentistry, going from zero to a solid knowledge base." Miona Jovanovic, Austria
