EFP prepares key events for scientists and clinicians

The EFP is busy preparing a host of events and projects in the coming months as it implements its strategic vision of “periodontal health for a better life.” A top priority will be a campaign to disseminate the new classification of periodontal and peri-implant diseases and conditions, launched by the EFP and the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) at EuroPerio9 in Amsterdam in June. Other key projects include an outreach campaign on periodontal disease and diabetes, the Perio Workshop on bone regeneration, and next year’s Perio Master Clinic in Hong Kong.

Video of the month: Perio Video

Perio Video is the area of the EFP website dedicated to educational and informative videos related to periodontology and implant dentistry. There is a wealth of material here that has been built up in recent years, including a video about the new classification of periodontal and peri-implant disease, videos about the links between periodontal health and general health, the “Perio Greats” series of interviews, and The Sound of Periodontitis (a short film in which patients talk about their experiences of periodontitis and treatment). There are also videos related to specific EFP events and campaigns such as EuroPerio, Perio Master Clinic, and Gum Health Day.
