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.

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).
