Auditorium for the EFP Perio Master Clinic 2017
Preparations for the EFP Perio Master Clinic 2017 in Malta are gathering pace and 40 per cent of the places at the limited-attendance event have already been sold.
There is a maximum of 600 participants for this meeting whose focus is peri-implantitis, from aetiology to treatment. Registration is handled on a “first come, first served” basis.
After registering, participants are invited to give their feedback on the type of questions they find most interesting. This information will be sent to the experts who will be speaking the event so that, as far as possible, they can tailor their presentations to the needs of their audience.
The EFP Perio Master Clinic event takes place on March 3 and 4, 2017 in the Maltese capital of Valletta, at the Mediterranean Conference Centre, a historic building that for two centuries was the Sacra Infermeria hospital of the Knights of Malta.
This venue was chosen after the EFP decided to move the location from the first choice of Istanbul because of the political situation in Turkey. Since then, the organising committee and the EFP’s professional conference organiser Mondial Congress & Events have been working hard to ensure the success of the event.
“Everything continues as planned,” said Korkud Demirel, chairman of the organising committee. “The relocation has been communicated to all of the speakers and all have confirmed their enthusiasm for the meeting.”
The aim of Perio Master Clinic is to bring together clinicians who wish to take their clinical practice to the highest levels of excellence. Presentations will be given by world-leading scientists and clinicians.
The context is that implants are now a major part of the work of periodontal practitioners and cases of peri-implant diseases are rising. “In this unique setting you will have the chance to listen to and discuss with world renowned master clinicians on diagnosis, prevention and treatment of peri-implant diseases,” says Prof Demirel.
Subjects covered by the scientific programme, which has been put together by scientific chairman Stefan Renvert, include: how to treat peri-implantitis, when to treat and when to remove implants, how to handle aesthetic complications such as implant surface exposure, and how to minimise problems with dental implants.
The Malta meeting is the second event of its kind, following the pioneering first Perio Master Clinic in Paris in February 2014. Unlike the Paris event, this time there will also be an exhibition to provide participants with the opportunity to meet the industry and see the latest products.
“Many participants in the previous meeting, in Paris, expressed the need for an exhibition to complete the circle,” said Demirel, who added: “Last but not least, Malta with its moderate and mild climate will be a perfect escape from the tiring winter days.”
