ITI Fellows are implant dentistry professionals who may serve in official ITI functions on the ITI Board of Directors, Committees or in the Sections. Together, the ITI Fellows make up the ITI General Assembly, the organization's highest body that convenes annually to discuss and approve organizational business.
ITI fellowship is by nomination only. Candidates must demonstrate a high level of activity in at least one of the following areas: Education, research or leadership in a professional dental organization.
Fellowship nominations may only be made by ITI Fellows with at least four years' seniority. Each nomination must be supported by two additional ITI Fellows. Fellowship nominations are reviewed by the ITI Board of Directors twice a year. For more detailed information, consult the Articles of the ITI.
ITI annual fellowship fees are country-specific and range between USD 450 and 520. Individual country fees are based on local price levels and purchasing power. Depending on the country in which you reside, your fee will be charged in one of three currencies: USD, EUR or CHF. 10% or 15% discounts are available for a two- or three-year membership.
Frequently asked questions
What’s the registration fee for students and do student members also get Treatment Guides?
Postgraduate students have a 50% discount on the regular membership fee. Postgraduates are eligible for digital memberships only, which come without print media but full viewing access to the Academy. Classic membership is not possible.
Why did I not receive the Treatment Guide this year?
There are several reasons why you might not have received a copy of the ITI Treatment Guide:
- You did not have a valid membership at the time the book was published.
- You have a digital membership and are therefore not eligible to receive a hard copy of our publications. However, all publications are available online if you log in to your ITI account.
- No ITI Treatment Guide was published this year.
- Please note that translated versions are published after the English version.
Can I choose any official ITI language for publications irrespective of the country I live in?
Yes, the country is not relevant and you can choose the official ITI language that suits you best.
Can I apply for an ITI Scholarship while I am still a postgraduate?
Postgraduate training must be finished by the time the Scholarship year starts, but applications may be submitted while the applicant is still in training.
What is the ITI’s connection to Straumann?
The ITI enjoys a unique relationship with Straumann, a global leader in implant, restorative and regenerative dentistry. Both organizations share the goal of developing optimal treatment solutions to the benefit of patients. This partnership dates back almost 40 years and is guided by the following statements:
- Straumann provides funding, expertise and support to the ITI
- Decisions are made in the mutual interest of both parties
If the ITI is independent, who finances it?

Can I participate in Study Clubs in other countries, e.g. during holidays?
Yes, ITI Members can participate in any Study Club. Please notify the Study Club Director about your participation to help facilitate his planning (room, AV, catering).
I don’t want to renew my membership, what do I have to do?
Of course, we very much regret that you have decided to leave the ITI. You do not have to act now. After the final payment reminder, your membership lapses automatically.
After registering, I could not complete the payment process. Who can help me?
