Welcome to ASID
Some Basic Facts About ASID
The Australian Society of Implant Dentistry (ASID) is an organisation geared toward the promotion, sharing and teaching of knowledge in the field of dental implantology. First formed in 1969, it works to offer a support network for its professional members and information for the general public. We are affiliated with the Australian Dental Association (ADA) and are a component society of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI), the world's largest dental implant body. Our independence from direct commercial influence ensures we are free to study all aspects, brands and modalities of implant dentistry, without bias. In turn, this allows us the freedom to give our members and the patients who seek our assistance the best and most appropriate advice possible.
The Society upholds its mission with activities on many fronts, such as the financial assistance provided annually to a number of Australian Universities for the establishment of undergraduate implant teaching programs alongside its own post graduate teaching with regular lectures, seminars and accreditation programs it offers. Members are encouraged to undertake our accreditation program, as part of their education in dental implantology. Our society is the only body that offers this facility. Some members have agreed to having their names published in our List of Members.
