About the ITI

The International Team for Implantology

The ITI is a global association of professionals in implant dentistry. The objectives of the ITI are the promotion and dissemination of knowledge about implant dentistry and related fields.


Our purpose is to serve dental professionals by fostering learning, networking, discussion and exchange. We provide comprehensive, quality education in implant dentistry and support and facilitate cutting-edge research in this field. Our aim is to be the authoritative resource on current and emerging issues in implant dentistry for dental professionals globally.


The ITI was founded in 1980 by 12 experts planning ahead for the future of their field. Their objective was an alliance of specialists to pursue research and development in an important and as yet untapped medical area on a voluntary and idealistic basis. Today, the ITI has more than 17,000 Fellows and Members. Through its growing number of national Sections, the ITI ensures the exchange of expertise and know-how via a modern, quality-conscious and efficient network.

Information Support Page for Online Participants

In keeping with the ITI’s philosophy of patient-centered treatment, our education philosophy also extends to student-centered learning and support. Our team is here to support you through your online learning journey, to enable, empower and engage you in every aspect of your learning experience.

For education program registration, hands-on support, assessments and questions regarding content or certification, please contact the Curriculum support listed at the bottom of this page. For technical inquiries regarding access, performance and compatibility issues, please use the technical support contact option also listed at the bottom of this page.

What prerequisites are necessary to register for the Curriculum?

You should be a dental practitioner with the relevant degrees and certificates from your country of operation, a post-graduate or undergraduate student of dental sciences.

How and when do I have to register for the hands-on program?

We advise you to enroll as early as possible for the hands-on program. Contact Curriculum support to learn about the options available.

How much time do I need to complete the online course for the Foundation level?

The Foundation level course can be completed at your own pace. We recommend you do not take more than 18 months to complete it, including all the assessments.

What is the duration of the hands-on program at Foundation level?

The hands-on program takes 2 days.

Do I have access to a course tutor?

No. This program is designed for self-learning and provides all the tools necessary to monitor your progress.

Who do I contact if I have problems accessing the online course content?

If you experience access or compatibility issues with the learning content, please contact our technical support.

Who do I contact if I need help/explanations regarding the online course content?

Contact the Curriculum support if you have questions about the course content.

Can I place implants after I complete the Foundation level course?

No. The Foundation level course provides you with a clear theoretical framework in preparation for the clinical and surgical aspects of implant dentistry, which can then be studied at the Intermediate and the Advanced levels of the Curriculum.

Can I do the entire Foundation level online?

Yes, with the exception of the 2-day hands-on program.

Can I do the entire Intermediate level online?

The Intermediate level program must be taken with one of the partner institutions or universities listed on our website.

I am an ITI Member. Do I still have to pay to do the ITI Curriculum?

Yes, your membership fee covers the standard membership benefits. The ITI Curriculum fee covers all the Curriculum content, assessments, exams, and certification.

Can I pay my fees in installments?

We would consider monthly installments, for example USD 1,000 per month, with full payment within 3 months of registration.

Is there an Advanced level of the Curriculum?

Yes, the Advanced level course is in the process of being developed and will soon be available.

I am already an implant dentist and have placed numerous implants throughout my career. Is this Curriculum for me?

Yes. You will benefit from a structured learning program at your own pace and the Curriculum offers three levels. At the Foundation level, you can consolidate your theoretical basic knowledge and clinical skills. At the Intermediate and Advanced levels, you will plan, place and restore implants in straightforward and advanced indications, respectively, according to ITI principles and protocols.

What is the duration of the final online exam?

The summative examination lasts 90 minutes.

How will I receive my certificate on successful completion?

As an online participant, you will receive your certificate by mail. Participants who do a program with a partner institution on-site will have their ITI certificate sent to that institution.

What do I do if I cannot find a hands-on workshop in my location?

You should contact ITI HQ at [email protected]

Do I have to complete the final exam in one session?

Yes, a timer starts running at the start of the summative examination. You have the option to pause the examination 3 times (the same happens if there is a disconnect for technical reasons) for a total of 90 minutes. It is not possible to browse forward through the questions – they must be taken in strict sequential order. If you interrupt a summative examination for the 4th time for any reason, it will be marked as “not passed”. The summative examination ends when all the questions have been answered, the timer runs out or after 4 interruptions.

How do I best prepare for the final exam?

By attempting and successfully completing all the formative assessments at the end of every module. The final exam will consist of 60 questions in the multiple choice format that need to be answered in 90 minutes.

Why does the Curriculum include formative assessments?

The Curriculum includes formative assessments to give participants a clear indication and understanding of their knowledge gaps. It also allows participants to manage their learning plan better.

What is the difference between a summative examination and a formative assessment?

A summative examination is a final exam which counts towards certification. A formative assessment is a learning tool to assist and measure your learning progress.

How many times can I retake the formative assessments?

As many times as you wish until you are confident that you have done well and understood the content of the module.

How many times can I retake the summative examination?

As many times as necessary in order to pass and successfully complete the certification level. You will need to pay a fee of USD 250 each time you retake the exam.

Why is the course divided into domains?

The use of domains provides a structured approach with which you can better manage your learning journey through the program.

Do I have to complete all the domains and modules before I can take the final exam?

Yes, access to the final summative examination is only given once you have completed all 6 domain level assessments.

Do I have to complete a domain before I can move onto the next one?

Yes.
