As evidence of Drs. Fava and Levine’s passionate commitment to the field of dental implantology and periodontics, they have been instrumental in establishing various study clubs to help fellow practitioners in the field keep up on the latest research, treatment protocols and practice management. Each of these clubs is described in more detail below.
Established in 1980, the International Team for Implantology has become the largest independent academic organization in implant dentistry and the related field of tissue regeneration. In 2007, Dr. Levine established the Philadelphia Tri-State Area ITI Study Club as an extension of the organization’s mission to constantly improve treatment methods and outcomes for the benefit of patients.

The Greater Philadelphia Dental Hygiene Study Club for Advanced Learning was created to provide a vibrant, continuous learning environment that will further the careers of its members and advance the future of Dental Hygiene. It is open to Registered Dental Hygienists, EFDAs and CDAs in the Greater Philadelphia Area. Learn More.
