The American Society of Implant & Reconstructive Dentistry (ASIRD) is a nationwide not-for-profit association dedicated to educating consumers on the value of dental implants and the importance of choosing an experienced surgeon and dentist team recognized for having a collaborative relationship to ensure optimal results. These teams work together throughout the process and are committed to providing customized, patient-specific, long-term solutions for your dental implant needs.
Many dentists and surgeons will provide you with implants. However, most do not work or train together. Fewer than 15% of dentists perform five or more implants a year*. Of these, only a few are selected for membership in ASIRD. Membership in the Society is by invitation only and restricted to dentists who meet this level of experience. ASIRD member teams recognize optimal outcomes are the result of dentists working closely together with their surgeon to provide patients with a highly coordinated case treatment. By selecting an ASIRD member, you can be sure that both the surgeon and dentist are proficient in implants and that they will work together throughout the process.
