Founded in 1987 by engineer Graham Blackbeard, Southern Implants is rooted in design innovation and the manufacture of medical devices.
Swedish surgeon and professor P. I. Branemark, known as the “father” of modern dental implantology, invited highly experienced South African specialists and academics to train with him in the mid-1980s. Upon their return to South Africa, the specialists introduced the science of implant dentistry to two leading Universities.
Graham Blackbeard was contacted by the specialists to manufacture components to complete treatment for patients. In 1988, Southern Implants started manufacturing implants and associated products.
In our 30-year history, Southern Implants has evolved into a leading provider of unique and innovative treatment solutions with a focus on top-tier specialists. The continued stream of new technologies will allow for continued growth and innovation.
