Are you looking to get in to implant dentistry and don’t know where to start?
Perhaps you are already placing or restoring implants but cannot find a suitable source of verifiable CPD to consolidate your portfolio?
Are you an experienced implant dentist looking to discuss cases, meet like-minded people and have access to a relevant and valuable source of evidence-based literature?
Is implant dentistry something that you find a little overwhelming and you are trying to find somewhere to dip a toe?
If you find yourself in any of these situations, then the Cornwall ITI study club is for you!
The International Team for Implantology is a huge organisation whose purpose is to disseminate evidence-based and best-practice information, guidance and helpful tips to clinicians and dental technicians. Each geographical region has a section which runs study clubs, courses, meetings and congresses. The ITI also publishes invaluable consensus statements which are put together by groups of specialists in their fields. They carry out systematic reviews of the literature and discuss the outcomes before publishing their results.
Being a member of the ITI allows you access to a wealth of online learning, forums, courses, congresses and ITI study clubs worldwide.
The ITI study club in Cornwall meets 4 times a year. The aim is to discuss evidence-based topics on all and any aspect of implant dentistry.
Paul is the Study Club Director for Cornwall, please contact him if you would like to have further information or visit www.iti.org . Meetings are usually held in the evening and each one qualifies for two hours of CPD. They are for Clinicians and Dental Technicians.
Recent topics have included clinical photography, implants restorations in the aesthetic zone, soft tissue management around implants, sinus augmentation, CBCT scans, augmentation avoiding onlay grafting,treatment planning and case discussions, which members find very rewarding.
Non ITI members are welcome to come to two ‘taster’ meetings before being asked to become a member. There are so many more benefits to becoming an ITI member in addition to our great local resource so please get in touch and come along. For further information please get in touch either via email or phone.

Human Factors in Implant Dentistry with Captain Bob Hubble
The aim of the workshop is to introduce Dentists to the concepts of Human Factors and how, from a patients perspective, they may become a routine element of daily working practice. The intention is for the evening to explore methods and applications within the dental practice such that all professionals in the patient pathway can contribute to safe, efficient and comfortable working environment for patient and carer alike.
The areas that will be discussed are:
The history of human factors
Risk awareness and mitigation
Situation awareness and decision making
Teamwork and assertiveness
The Just culture in error prevention
The intention is for a mix of engaged discussion, presentation and solution seeking so that attendees can analyse and jointly identify methods and processes of how to apply human factor concepts within their particular practice and client base.
If you would to bring along a nurse or practice manager they would be very welcome. Please let me know if you intend to do this so I can guestimate our refreshment needs.
