Welcome, and thank you for visiting the American Academy of Implant Dentistry’s Web site!
Founded in 1951, the Academy is the first professional organization in the world dedicated to implant dentistry. Its membership includes general dentists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, periodontists, prosthodontists and others interested in the field of implant dentistry. As a membership organization, we currently represent over 5,500 dentists worldwide.
The Academy’s mission is simple: To advance the science and practice of implant dentistry through education, research support and to serve as the credentialing standard for implant dentistry for the benefit of mankind.
Through our educational offerings and credentialing program, we provide valuable expertise in the field of oral implantology—expertise that ultimately benefits the patients dentists serve. If you are a patient interested in dental implants, I encourage you to visit our Find a Dentist section.

The advances in technology and techniques that have occurred, and those we are currently exploring, are making implant dentistry more sophisticated and successful, bringing it to the forefront of the dental field.Through this site, you can learn more about implant dentistry, dental implants and the services provided by the Academy.
