Good luck with your abstract submission and have a great EuroPerio8 from June 3-6, 2015 at ExCel, London, UK.
Dental hygienists can get nearly 30% off the special EuroPerio8 day ticket if they register by February 27.
This one-day alternative to full June 3-6 participation costs just 145 euros as opposed to the 205 euros you will pay if you wait until after May 13, 2015 or hold off to purchase on-site at the world's leading conference in periodontology and implant dentistry.
There is also an early registration incentive for hygienists opting for full attendance of EuroPerio8. A price of 260 euros will get you the complete June 3 to 6 package if you book before Feb 27. After that, until May 13, you can still take advantage of a discounted price of 315 euros. For full details of registration prices, click here.
As a day ticket holder, dental hygienists will - on the day of your ticket - enjoy the full benefits of the scientific programme, receive all relevant conference materials, and access conference documentation through a login. You will also be able to catch up with all the latest product and technical innovations from the dental industry by visiting the huge exhibition space at the conference venue, ExCel.

Prestige prizes in periodontology research come no bigger than the EFP Clinical Research Prize in Periodontology. The deadline for submissions is November 28.
If you are thinking of winning this and the 10,000 CHF that go with it, the deadline - November 28 - is fast approaching.
The EFP Clinical Research Prize in Periodontology, formerly known as the Jaccard prize, was instituted in 1995 by the EFP with the aim of promoting periodontology research across Europe.
The prize is open to all candidates who are members of an EFP-federated national periodontal society and who have neither published their work nor presented it in a previous meeting.
Candidates' manuscripts should be prepared according to the Author Guidelines of the Journal of Clinical Periodontology (JCP) and sent to the chairman of the EuroPerio8 Organising Committee, Francis Hughes. A panel of five judges will short-list the three best publications and these will be published in the JCP. Successful researchers will be invited to attend EuroPerio8 with accomodation, travel expenses and registration fees paid by the EFP.
Every researcher will present their work in a 20-minute oral presentation within EuroPerio8, followed by a 10-minute discussion. The winner will be awarded on the merits of the submitted manuscript as well as their oral presentation and discussion and in line with these evaluation criteria.
