Implantology is now an established component of the dentist's treatment spectrum. In order to integrate the necessary surgical and prosthetic procedures into the daily workflow, treatment should be well organized and standardized. Issues such as patient rights; informed consent and documentation thereof; hygiene regulations; patient preparation; organizational aspects of implant surgery; processing, sterilization, and storage of special implantology instruments; and documentation of the intervention must be observed. Additionally, the logistics of material management for the surgical and prosthetic elements of dental implants are of utmost importance. This module of the e.curriculum, "Integrating implantology into the daily workflow," describes each step in detail.
