The association consists mainly of dentists who have chosen implants as the focus of their work. ICOI consists of a large number of local associations and is also supported by institutions such as IAI and ADIA.
We specialize in training dentists in various fields of implantology. The tailor-made programs should provide the participants with a better understanding of implantology as well as field-proven knowledge in order to optimize the day-to-day processes of the individual participants and in the practices. As a core part of our work, we attach particular importance to a practice-oriented education with a good level of hands-on.
