The Association of Dental Implantology (ADI) is the go-to organisation for all dental professionals interested in or involved with dental implants. With more than 2,400 active members, it has become a thriving community of like-minded individuals who all share the same passion for excellent dentistry.

As such, there are many advantages to membership with the ADI. Not least of these are both learning and networking opportunities available throughout the year – both of which are essential for a long and successful career in dental implantology.


ADI Members’ National Forum 

The ADI Members’ National Forum is free for all ADI members to attend. It will present an array of sessions by professionals who wish to share their experience, research findings and insights into the latest trends, materials and technologies in the field. For all the details or to register, please visit the ADI website. The event is free for members, so why not join to make the most of this fantastic event?

ADI Study Clubs

Held throughout the year and at different locations across the country, the ADI Study Clubs offer a more intimate learning experience for dental professionals to hear from experts in their relevant fields. Upcoming sessions will offer a wealth of information and advice on how to maintain dental implants in the long-term, as well as digital smile design and its benefits in improving treatment acceptance, planning and surgical placement. Delegates will also find out more about the progression of the field over the past 10 years and discover how to optimise the business aspects of offering dental implant therapy. All ADI Study Clubs are held in evenings and offer verifiable CPD. The full list is available on the ADI website.

ADI Team Congress

This highly anticipated biennial event offers a comprehensive educational programme for all members of the dental team, including dentists, dental nurses, dental hygienists and therapists, practice manager and dental technicians. It presents an array of leading speakers from the UK and abroad, providing information and inspiration from globally renowned professionals. There is also a trade exhibition hosting manufacturers and suppliers of dental implant-related products and technologies for delegates to browse. The next event will be held in 2021, so be sure to look out for information when it is announced!

All these educational events also have a social aspect to ensure you have time to catch up with friends and meet new people.

Learning resources

Another invaluable resource for ADI Clinician and First Five Years members is free premium membership to Dentinal Tubules. This platform offers more than 45,000 minutes of learning, with almost 1,500 videos covering a spectrum of subjects to suit all interests and experience levels. The intelligent Personal Development Plan (iPDP) also facilitates smart CPD planning and fulfilment.

While the benefits of face-to-face interaction are many, the ADI understands the time pressures dentists and their teams face in the modern industry. As such, it has made webinars available on key topics that can be watched between events to keep you up-to-date in an easy and convenient way. Seven webinars are currently available to members to access at any time, so you can fit your learning around your busy schedule with ease.

In addition to all this, the ADI also provides members with access to prestigious research journals that feature an array of the latest studies and concepts in the dental implant arena. The Clinical Oral Implants Research (COIR) Journal and EDI Journal are both highly respected publications that will help dental professionals remain at the cutting-edge of implant dentistry.

Network of support

Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of joining the ADI community is the support that becomes available to you. As part of a group of like-minded professionals, you will be able to share ideas, gain inspiration and seek advice on everything from specific cases to postgraduate qualifications. The ADI Members-only Facebook Group is perfect for this, enabling individuals to post queries and see how others have overcome similar challenges. This is a great place to find possible mentors or to pass on your own knowledge and expertise, helping colleagues grow and raising standards across the board.

Ultimately, knowing you’re not alone and having colleagues to turn to for support can make a huge difference to the quality of your implant dentistry and your job satisfaction. Regardless of whether you are just getting into dental implantology or have been offering treatment for many years, you will certainly gain from joining the ADI.
