Purpose: (1) To present a Danish quality register (AMETO) concerning dental implant treatment for dental agenesis, assess its indicators and standards, and compare them with those acknowledged and outlined by the Institute of Medicine (IoM), World Health Organization (WHO), and Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), classified as the quality domains efficiency, effectiveness, patient-centered care, timely care, safety, and equitability; and (2) to perform a systematic literature search and review to verify whether any quality register exists according to the six quality domains. Materials and Methods: (1) The AMETO register is comprised of 16 process and result indicators and standards, which were compared to the six quality domains outlined by the IoM and WHO. (2) A systematic literature search was carried out using the search engines PubMed, Embase, CINAHL, Web of Science, and SveMed+. The included articles were assessed for quality indicators and standards to determine whether they conformed to the six quality domains. Results: AMETO indicators and standards conformed to the quality domains outlined by the IoM. A search of (dental agenesis) AND (dental implants) yielded a total of 381 publications, of which 27 were included for qualitative synthesis. A search on quality indicators and dental agenesis registries yielded no results. Due to considerable heterogeneity in the reported quality indicators related to effectiveness, patient-centered care, and safety, a meta-analysis could not be conducted. Conclusion: AMETO conforms to the quality domains described by the IoM, WHO, and OECD. Few studies have investigated dental implant treatment of dental agenesis. Moreover, no published quality register for dental implant treatment currently exists.
