Offering in-depth continuing dental implant education for you and your team!
The American Academy of Implant Prosthodontics (AAIP) was founded in 1982 by Dr. Maurice J. Fagan, Jr., at the School of Dentistry, Medical College of Georgia, to provide educational opportunities in implant prosthodontics for dentists, dental students, dental laboratory technicians, and dental auxiliaries, by sponsoring annual conventions, continuing education courses, a professional journal (Implant Prosthodontics Monographs), study clubs, and externships. Dentist members can receive advanced standing within the Academy (Fellowship and Mastership status) as their knowledge and experience in implant prosthodontics increases by meeting specific educational requirements and passing an examination.
Dental implant organizations throughout the world have become affiliate and component societies of the American Academy of Implant Prosthodontics, including organizations in Egypt, France, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, and Thailand. Component organizations include AAIP Central America, Atlantic Dental Implant Seminars, Linkow Implant Institute,
and Live Implant Training.
Past annual conventions were held in cooperation with United States dental schools, including Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health, Temple University, Howard University, University of Pittsburgh, University of South Carolina, and Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine. Joint meetings have been held with component and affiliate societies in Egypt, France, Kazakhstan, and Thailand.
The AAIP, in cooperation with its Italian affiliate, NuovoGISI, and the National Association of Italian Dentists (ANDI), sponsors an implant dentistry section in an established Venice, Italy, museum of medicine. The implant section is named in memory of two American innovators, Drs. Leonard I. Linkow and Jack Wimmer, who contributed greatly to the development of blade and subperiosteal implants.
