The Annual Survey: the reason we ask you to register

The annual patient survey gives you an opportunity to comment on your quality of life with implants. Taking part in the annual surveys is a precondition to benefit from the Implants of Excellence programme and its implant-replacement policy.

The questions are easy to answer. By answering the questionnaire, your participation in the Implants of Excellence programme will be extended by one year.

You will receive key highlights of the annual POLYTECH patient survey – we want you to be well informed about your implants.

NOTE: The Annual Survey is conducted every year around April or May. We contact registered patients, who had their surgery prior to March 30th of the previous year. Each year, you will receive new access data in your email invitation. If you have not received our email by the end of May, please contact us via: ioe[at]polytechhealth.com.
