Study Clubs

Dedicated to the Advancement of Dental Implant Science and Periodontal Care

As evidence of our doctors’ 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.

  • The Philadelphia Tri-State Area ITI Study Club

    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 with more than 20,000 members and fellows worldwide. Learn More.


    Dr. Philip L. Fava II manages a SPEAR Study Club.  The study club is dedicated to providing its members with excellence in continuing education through meetings and presentations. With the objective of constantly improving treatment methods for the benefit of our patients, we actively promote the “Team Approach” of sharing knowledge and expertise. The Study Club meets locally up to eight times a year to collaborate on actual cases, improve  clinical expertise, and enhance patient outcomes.
