The Perio & Family Doctors campaign is a joint project of the EFP and Wonca Europe, with the support and unrestricted grant from Curasept.
The EFP (European Federation of Periodontology) is the scientific benchmark in periodontology and implant dentitry and leads the global conversation on gum health and gum disease. It's also the driving force behind EuroPerio – the most important international periodontal congress. It also organises Perio Workshop, a world-leading meeting on periodontal science, and Perio Master Clinic and International Perio Master Clinic, prestigious conferences for dental clinicians, as well as editing the Journal of Clinical Periodontology (JCP), one of the most authoritative scientific publications in this field.
Founded in 1991, the EFP brings together 38 national societies of periodontology from around the world, which together represent more than 16,000 periodontists, dentists, researchers, and other members of the dental team focused on improving periodontal science and practice. The EFP and its national societies organise the annual Gum Health Day (May 12) to increase public awareness of periodontal health.
