This started with orthopedic implants (hip, etc.) and dental implants are to be the second group to be included within the scope of this development.

Participants would need to sign the National Electronic Manufacturers Association Patent Policy agreement (to disclose conflicts of interest) and the American Dental Association SCDI copyright agreement.
