ITI Study Club Cornwall
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 an ITI Fellow and 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.

The Maxillary Sinus with Neil Tan
With an increase in dental implant placement and good evidence on successful treatments to augment the floor of the maxillary sinuses, implant dentists are realising the importance of our neighbour, the maxillary sinus.
With more frequent CBCT scans we are identifying more sinus-related pathology and it is important to know how to manage what we find.
Thankfully in Cornwall we have a highly committed and talented ENT colleague in Neil Tan who has kindly agreed to take us though what we need to know about this vital anatomical structure and it’s importance in dentistry and implant dentistry.
This meeting will be full of images and videos relevant to our daily practice.
To give delegates greater knowledge of the maxillary sinus
Investigate what effects the maxillary dentition and dental implants have on the maxillary sinus
Show endoscopic and radiological photos and videos of the paranasal sinuses
At the end of the presentation participants will be able to:
- Describe the sinus, nose and nasopharynx in health
- Identify clinically relevant findings on a CBCT
- Describe the management of chronic mucosal conditions; what dental professionals can manage and what to refer
- Diagnose chronic and acute sinusitis and odontogenic rhinosinusitis
There is also no fee to bring along a DCP if you are a member and they are very welcome, but please let us know if you plan to do this.
Venue: The Alverton Hotel, TRURO. Including a buffet supper.
Please email with your preferred email address and GDC number if you are not an ITI member. We will still ask you to sign up on ITInet as a guest. There is also a fee for this meeting of £50 if you are not a member or a DCP colleague of a member.
