Straumann Dental Implants and the ITI.
Dr Nick Fahey has been working alongside Straumann, one of the top 3 dental implant manufacturers in the world for around 15 years now and as many of you will know things have moved on a lot during this time. One of the only things that hasn’t changed is the Straumann reputation for manufacturing some of the world’s best dental implants. They are Swiss after all!!
Straumann also works very closely with the ITI (International Team for Implantology) which is made up from leading clinicians, researchers and universities around the world. Dr Nick Fahey has been a member of the ITI since 2002 and has recently become a fellow of the ITI. This is a very respected and well-earned position as you have to be nominated to become one. The ITI fellowship is made up of experienced dental professionals and enables Nick to sit of the ITI board and attend exclusive fellow meetings to discuss new research or ideas related to dental implant placement, products and education.
Nick also holds his own ITI study club for the Reading area. This is a great opportunity to bring similar minded people together and also have speakers from all over the world come and talk about what’s new in implant dentistry. There are usually 4 meetings throughout the year with varying topics all related to implant dentistry, they are run in the evening and can be attended by ITI members and Non-members.
The ITI offer huge support to dentists across the world with their own ITI network. This means that you can log on to the ITI page and access endless amounts of information and advice, with live discussions and Q+A forums, you will never be without support.
Straumann headquarters are based in Basel, Switzerland. Nick usually makes an annual or biannual trip to Straumann headquarters to see what breakthrough technology they are working on and also to give them some of his ideas and input on some things that may make the Straumann dental implant even better than it already is! Straumann strive to produce the best and most reliable service, much as we do here at Woodborough House so it is no wonder Nick chose to go with Straumann when choosing which dental implant to place out of the hundreds or manufacturers available.If you would like to know more about Dental implants or dental implant placement please don’t hesitate to contact us via our contact form or by calling 0118 9843108
