The programme for future EFP Perio Sessions has been announced and features weekly webinars from leading European periodontists on key topics in clinical practice.
Former EFP president Filippo Graziani (Italy), Virgine Monnet Corti (France), and Oly Nir-Shapira (Israel) will give live webinars on Thursday afternoons at 17:00 CET. The webinars will be recorded and published on the EFP’s YouTube channel.
The calendar of webinars is:

Commenting on the launch of EFP Perio Sessions, federation president Xavier Struillou said: “The EFP is always seeking new ways to fulfil its strategic vision of 'periodontal health for a better life' and hopes that these live webinars – given by some of the leading names in periodontology today – will help clinicians all around the world to advance their knowledge and understanding of key developments in periodontal science and clinical practice.”
