The CleanImplant Foundation | Berlin – New York
Located in the German capital, CleanImplant conducts objective periodical analysis of the production quality of dental implants, by using accredited laboratories according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025, based on a defined protocol. Research to determine the consequences and clinical relevance of avoidable contamination and quality deficiencies in dental implants, are promoted and commissioned in collaboration with renowned universities. The Project was initiated in 2016 by Dr. Dirk Duddeck, dentist and biologist, who is working in this field of research for more than 15 years.
According to its statute, the CleanImplant Foundation is a 100% independent organization, that pursues no commercial goals. It is officially registered as CleanImplant Foundation CIF GmbH and works as a non-profit organization. All fundings and revenues are basically to be reinvested and used to improve the performance of the organization. The initiative is committed to scientific and financial transparency. That means, all processes of analysis are independent and unbiased, reports for the Trusted Quality Mark for residue-free implant systems are peer-reviewed and even the annual financial report is open to public (find out more here).
The awareness campaign is supported by the CleanImplant Foundation (Stiftung), an independent and - according to German law - "charitable" organization under fiduciary administration, located in Werder, Germany. Note: Whenever our Internet pages refer to this organization, we use the German addition "Stiftung" as a reference in the text.
The internationally recognized quality award, the "Trusted Quality" Seal by the CleanImplant Foundation, was created to underline the highest quality of dental implant systems and to give an orientation for all practitioners in the field. Production-site contaminated implants must not longer be accepted!
With the aim to support colleagues with the insight know-how and to protect all patients from avoidable risks with severe consequences, the CleanImplant Foundation certifies also dental practitioners who are committed to the highest quality medicine and are willing to make a difference in choosing wisely the best medical device for their patients.

“Implant surfaces do influence the biological response, some modifications may strengthen osseointegration others, such as unintentional impurities, may contribute to a clinical failure. Control of the implant properties is therefore very important and all clinician should be able to know what kind of products they purchase.”

“Dentists have to rely on the word of manufacturers and the FDA or CE marks to feel sure that the implants they are using are being manufactured to a standard one would expect of an implantable dental device. Sadly, this is often not the case. The CleanImplant Foundation is an objective, independent non-profit foundation that has been established to fill this void and to help provide both dentist and patient the reassurance they need and must have when using dental implants.”
Prof. Dr. Hugo de Bruyn
ACTA University of Amsterdam, Netherlands
"We discuss as researchers and clinicians periimplantitis issues and often blame patients, surgeons or prosthodontist for the damage done. Some key opinion makers even suggest a return to ‘good all days’ implants. Indeed periimplantitis was less observed or we were not aware of it. Maybe the immunologic reaction related to materials and surfaces, whereof some of reputable surface quality, is underestimated as a causal factor. Clean, cleaner, cleanest is maybe not only for the patient selection an issue but also for the implant surface."
Univ. Prof. Dr. Florian Beuer
DDS, PhD, MME, Professor, Head of Prosthodontics, Charité University Medicine, Berlin, Germany
“…up to now no quality control exists for dental implants once they have the CE or FDA marks. Therefore I support the idea of the „CleanImplant Foundation“ as an objective, independent, non-profit organization to establish the first quality seal in implant dentistry. Even if we do not know the clinical implications yet, our patients deserve the best quality that is available…“
Prof. Dr. Jaafar Mouhyi
DDS, PhD Professor and Head of Biomaterials Department, International University of Agadir (Universiapolis), Morocco
“Osseointegrated implantology started few decades ago with pure titanium fixtures treated with the best passivation and sterilization protocols available at the time….Nowadays, the major issues related to the quality evaluation of those new types of implants and surfaces are caused by the weak implant approval regulations imposed by legal organisations such as the FDA for the US or European Community (CE label) for their markets. How can it be possible to judge an implant quality, just by using sterilization tests or cell-culture techniques to identify an eventual toxicity of the material?”

Prof. Ebru Çal
Why Clean Implant? Successful osseointegration of dental implants depend on direct apposition of bone tissue to the implanted material. Unfortunately, various host depended and/or implant related factors may influence this unique and delicate process. The event of alloying pure titanium to create stronger implants may interfere with the biocompatibility of the material. This has already been documented in the recent literature. Moreover, the elements which may contaminate the surface of the implants raise an important question about the safety of the known & proven osseointegration process. It is by all means the right of both the patients and dental clinicians to acquire the “cleanest” dental implant and be “safe”.

" In 30 years of my clinical past, I realized that medicine & dentistry is not like engineering. You cannot expect the same material behavior from products made of the same material under the same conditions. There are too many parameters beyond the engineering principles. Patient immune response, biology, the environmental conditions that the medical procedure took place, serious aftercare are only a few that I can recall at the moment. We all had been taught that minor details make a lot of difference. The invention of microscope made it clear that ‘little creatures’ that are invisible to the naked eye can make a lot of difference. And now, modern technology, reveals vital information at nano levels. We are now able to correlate clinical outcomes with factors previously unknown. My clinical experience taught me that not all the implants are the same. And now with the help of ‘CleanImplant Project’, for the first time, I have a scientific answer for its possible causes. I strongly believe that the most important responsibility of a clinician is to protect his or her patient’s overall health. Obviously we cannot expect the patient to have the expert opinion about their treatment. However, the dentist is the expert and he/she has to be donated with the most accurate and current knowledge on the subject. I am sure, spreading the word about the importance of implant surface cleanliness will raise the information level of dentists all around the world in order to reach the main aim ‘Protecting the overall health of their patients’."
