The JOI is a bi-monthly, reputable, peer-reviewed publication dedicated to providing valuable information to general dentists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, periodontists, prosthodontists, and others interested in the field of implant dentistry. AAID members receive a subscription to the printed magazine and digital access to its archives.

Thought Leadership Opportunities
AAID members have the opportunity to showcase their thought leadership in a number of ways. Members can submit articles for AAID News and blog posts for Life Smiles, be guests on the AAID Podcast, and act as sources for the press.
Legal Support for Specialty Recognition
Implant dentistry is not currently recognized nationwide as a specialty. The AAID is working tirelessly at the state and national level to change this. The AAID has already won legal victories for specialty status and continues to advocate for implant dentistry as specialty field of dentistry.
