Zug/Günzburg, 25th November 2013 | Do you know how qualified your implantologist really is? Are you familiar with the meaning and quality of the certificates and diplomas on your dentist's walls? The function of Leading Implant Centers is to analyze the market and categorize the dental specialists working as implantologists so to create a qualitative transparency.

Implantation as a field of expertise is a continuously growing market. More and more dentists are organized in various national and international scientific associations and undergo further education and training.  In Germany, approximately 17,000 of the 55,000 licensed dentists are organized in four big scientific associations DGI (German Society for Implantology), BDIZ (European Association of Dental Implantologists), DGZI (German Association of Dental Implantology), DGOI (German Association for Oral Implantology) and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists ICOI. In these scientific associations dentists can on the one hand easily become a member without gaining any further qualifications and on the other hand they can gain different qualified standards through further education arrangements. Therefore, a dentist can already decorate her/his walls with a membership certificate as a standard member.

For the patient it is difficult if not even impossible to assess and evaluate the qualifications of an implantologist according to all the various diplomas, certificates and statements. The promotion and reasoning is advertised with words such as: curriculum, continuum, fellow, field of expertise, expert, specialist, European specialists, Master, Master of Science, IPS Master or Diplomate in various implant associations and a catalogue of doctors. Thus, out of the 55,000 licensed dentists in Germany, only approximately 2 percent are quality-wise on the highest education and certification level in implantology.
