Season's Greetings from EFP President Phoebus Madianos

On behalf of the EFP, I wish all the members of our 29 national periodontal societies a joyful and restful holiday.


After starting winter with an intense but wonderful XI EFP Workshop on Prevention, I see us approaching that time of the year when we join family and friends for a little less perio and a bit more merry-o...it's CHRISTMAS.

And a very happy 2015, a year which promises great things in periodontology, among them the April publication of very important conclusions and guidelines from that Workshop, the completion of the Delphi Study PERIO EU 2025, and the big one, EuroPerio8.

Thanks, everyone, and have a great year ahead helping to make Periodontology for All.

Phoebus Madianos

EFP President

Record! EuroPerio8 abstract submissions up 27% on EuroPerio7

EuroPerio8 has broken its first record with 1,614 abstract presentations received by the midnight deadline on December 9.

This outstanding statistic smashes the former best total of 1,459, which was set in 2012 for the Vienna EuroPerio7 event.

This good news also gets the final six months of promotion for the world's biggest event in periodontology off to a very promising start. EuroPerio8 begins on June 3, 2015 at the ExCeL Conference Centre, London.

"Only six months to go and the excitement is mounting," said Chairman of the EuroPerio8 Organising Committee, Francis Hughes, who is delighted with the response so far to the event.

"Everywhere I go the enthusiasm for EuroPerio8  is amazing," he continued.

"We have had a record number of abstracts submitted, and it looks like we are on for the biggest and best EuroPerio ever," said the EP8 Chairman.
