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:

  1. You did not have a valid membership at the time the book was published.
  2. 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.
  3. No ITI Treatment Guide was published this year.
  4. Please note that translated versions are published after the English version.

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:

  1. Straumann provides funding, expertise and support to the ITI
  2. Decisions are made in the mutual interest of both parties

If the ITI is independent, who finances it?

The ITI generates its own revenues through membership fees, events and industry exhibitions. Its partner Straumann also contributes financially with funding and expertise in the various countries where the ITI is active.

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.

Payment

I have a problem with credit card payment. My credit card has been refused by your payment partner Saferpay. Can you fix this?

Our payment partner Saferpay does not provide details about why a specific credit card was rejected. In many cases (e.g. temporary outages or your bank information could not be retrieved) the solution is simply to try again.

If the card payment continues to fail, please check with your bank to see if there is an issue with the card being used for international payments via the internet.

Because of security Problems, most banks have implemented very strict credit card restrictions in recent years.

Another reason could be that the “valid to” date of the credit card has almost been reached, in which case our partner Saferpay rejects the credit card.

Is there an alternative to payment by credit card?

Yes, we offer alternative payment methods such as bank transfer. Here are our bank details:

Study Clubs

What are ITI Study Clubs?

ITI Study Clubs represent a local channel of communication that allows for the dissemination of the latest developments in implant dentistry as well as discussion of clinical questions and an exchange of expertise in the local language of each country. ITI Study Clubs also provide a valuable networking opportunity.

How often do ITI Study Clubs meet?

Each ITI Study Club offers three to four meetings per year and the groups remain small. This allows for interactive discussion of aspects of treatment planning, procedures, handling of complications and aspects of practice management and practice building. The ITI Study Clubs are a great place to tap the collective knowledge and opinion of the members in a trusted environment and informal atmosphere.

How much does it cost to participate in an ITI Study Club?

ITI Members participate free of charge while non-ITI Members can attend up to two meetings as guests. Guests are then invited to sign up for ITI membership in order to continue attending ITI Study Club meetings and also benefit from a variety of additional ITI membership benefits.

How many ITI Study Clubs are there around the world?

Since their introduction in 2010, well over 650 ITI Study Clubs have been established around the world. 

Can I join more than one ITI Study Club?

As a Member or Fellow of the ITI you are free to choose which Study Club you wish to join. However, you can only be a member of one Study Club at a time. You may also attend any other Study Club as a guest.

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).
