What is the philosophy of GDIA?
Global Dental Implant Academy (GDIA) was founded in 2012, with a simple mission in mind: to advance the field of implant dentistry by providing quality education and training to the dedicated clinicians.
Understanding that training clinicians in implant dentistry are not a light task, Global Dental Implant Academy programs are designed with the understanding that a truly dedicated clinician must be a perpetual student. GDIA also understands that comprehensive training in implant dentistry cannot be achieved through one teaching methodology alone. Mastering this complex and ever-changing discipline requires up-to-date lectures and presentations by leading experts, different types of didactic teaching formats including audio-visual and online resources, review of the current clinical and research literature, “hands-on” practices, “over-the-shoulder” observation, clinical debates, and so on.
With this in mind, GDIA is committed to bringing the highest level of meaningful education in implant dentistry. As the name implies, GDIA will bring together leaders and experts in implant dentistry, as well as manufacturers and suppliers from the global arena and the local community. GDIA will unconditionally commit to the best possible education in implant dentistry.
GDIA Team is proud to present 20+ inspiring leaders around the world at GDIA USA Symposium 2018. Our speakers with diverse specialties will deliver the highest level of knowledge on scientific researches and ready-to-use clinical techniques. Combined with a wealth of knowledge on implant dentistry, you can connect and share to improve your dentistry.
