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 either get in touch.

Digital Workflows for Full Arch Restorations with Nick Fahey
This evening will build on our previous discussions on digital planning, surgery and prosthodontics.
Nick Fahey will present how he uses a digital workflow to provide full arch restorations for his patients including immediate placement and restoration.
Nick is a specialist prosthodontist and has over 10 years experience in using digital technology in his clinical practice. He has refreshingly practical approach to overcoming the problems that we face and I expect this evening will be good fun as very informative.
Venue: Healeys Cyder, Truro

Treatment planning and case discussions
Following previous meetings, I have been requested to show a case from start to finish using a digital workflow.
If you would like to bring a case to plan, this would be fantastic. All we need would be a CBCT in dicom format, some study models, or digital models in STL format, and ideally a few photos but this is not essential. An SAC assessment can be carried out if we have photos and models, plus few details of your patient. Please contact Paul if you would like to do this.
