Overview

Implantology is an integral part of dental practice and is rapidly catching pace over the past decade. It is no more an optional knowledge for practicing dentists, rather a must have skill.

Implant Study Group, was dreamed and formed by experienced faciomaxillary surgeon Dr Girish Rao and his colleague, and enthusiastic prosthodontist in the year 2000. Over the years having successfully rehabilitated hundreds of patients with dental implants, both of them realized that there was an acute need to train other dentists in India in the rapidly developing field of Implantology.

In 2005, they started the first advanced surgical and prosthetic course in Implantology, through which more than 350 dental practitioners from both India and abroad have get trained.

To further enhance the skills of dental practitioners in Implantology and also to create a forum to discuss and interact on the challenging cases an Implant Study Group(ISG) was created. The aim of this group is to share knowledge and continue professional development in the exciting field of Implantology.
