ITI Congress India Bangalore 2023 - Dentistry

ITI Congress India Bangalore 2023


Welcome to the 2nd ITI India National Congress to be held in Bengaluru on 25th and 26th November 2023.

The theme of the Congress is “Integrating implants into long term oral health and function’’

Over the past 3 years implantology has been embracing digital technology, immediacy, newer restorative materials and protocols with great speed and vigor. As the clinical usage of these trends grows (and along with it, the body of evidence on their application) it is important that we stay updated on all their aspects as well as keep an eye on future developments.

A digitally connected world enables us to get an exposure to newer concepts easily, but what better way of upgrading ourselves than meeting and interacting with the stalwarts who shape the research, clinical developments, and applications of these exciting new concepts?

The scientific program at the ITI India National Congress brings together some of the best and most sought-after international speakers in implantology. The program covers a large array of topics and themes which will encompass every clinical application in daily practice.

The Congress will also see active participation from our Section’s heritage of ITI Scholars who have been trained at the best universities by the best mentors.

The Poster presentation competition offers a chance to get your clinical and research work evaluated by the very best in implantology.

There’s time to relax, unwind and let your hair down at the Straumann party. This is a great opportunity to meet old friends, make new ones and network with colleagues and industry partners.

The ITI India Congress is fully in sync with the time-tested ITI principles and promises to deliver excellent, clinically relevant scientific content with the highest quality of evidence. It would be a great blend of learning, interacting, networking and fun.

We eagerly await to host you in Bengaluru!
