The Open Journal of Implant Dentistry, the official journal of SASDI, provides a novel and influential avenue for research and commentary on major clinical and practical challenges in implant dentistry, particularly from an African perspective. The journal aims to share insight into evidence- and practice-based research amongst the professionals within the dental community to enhance and promote a universal standard of practice and clinical care.

With its unique focus, the journal facilitates the exchange of knowledge between general practitioners and specialists in order to provide critical information to researchers, educators and policy makers.
