EuroPerio10 offers comprehensive program on periodontology and implant dentistry

March 7, 2022
Organized by the European Federation of Periodontology, the EuroPerio10 congress will convene in Copenhagen, Denmark, in June.

The tenth edition of EuroPerio, the triennial world-leading congress in periodontology and implant dentistry, returns in 2022 after having been postponed from last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Organized by the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP), EuroPerio10 will take place on June 15–18, 2022, in Copenhagen, Denmark. It features a top-level scientific program packed with sessions covering the latest trends and hottest topics for oral-health-care professionals, with an outstanding faculty of 135 well-known speakers from more than 30 countries.

The EuroPerio10 scientific program not only excels by offering the best researchers, clinicians, and academics in the world of periodontology, it also features a wide variety of innovative formats, including live mucogingival and bone-regeneration surgeries, interactive sessions, "nightmare sessions” (depicting worst-case scenarios when everything goes wrong), video sessions, debates, interviews, symposia, and more.

Considerable attention will be also given to the EFP’s S3-level clinical guidelines on the treatment of periodontitis, the newest guideline on stage IV periodontitis.

Dentists, periodontists, oral surgeons, orthodontists, prosthodontists, dental hygienists, dental students, dental nurses, and other dental and medical professionals are all offered the option of creating their own itinerary according to their preferences. To help attendees enjoy a better experience, the organizers of EuroPerio10 suggest a series of tracks based on their professional profile (specialist, academic, clinician, oral hygiene and prevention, researcher), plus three tracks based on topics (periodontology, implant dentistry, and multidisciplinary).

Online registration available

Registration for EuroPerio10 is available on the EFP website. Register before May 19 for discounts.

Besides the regular program, registration includes access to a series of sponsored workshops and a networking program with special events. Abstract presentations, contests, award ceremonies, a major industry exhibition, the EFP Village, and other activities are also key elements of the congress.

“EuroPerio10 is the main event organized by the EFP and appeals to a large, global audience,” says Lior Shapira, president of the EFP. “The previous editions—EuroPerio8 in London in 2015 and EuroPerio9 in Amsterdam in 2018—were each attended by around 10,000 attendees from more than 100 countries and have paved the way for a brilliant EuroPerio10.”

“The scientific program addresses the interests of every member of the dental community and provides them with an updated snapshot of what perio is today,” explains David Herrera, scientific chair of EuroPerio10. “We have a great faculty, complete and diverse, addressing the main challenges of our profession with the most engaging session formats.”

“EuroPerio10 will allow the dental community to gather together again for the first time in a long time,” says Phoebus Madianos, chair of the congress. “So we are proud to have prepared an exciting congress up to the task of bringing dental professionals up to date in terms of knowledge, skills, trends, and solutions, but also in terms of personal interaction and networking with colleagues."

EFP, global benchmark in periodontology

The EFP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting awareness of periodontal science and the importance of gum health. Its guiding vision is “periodontal health for a better life.”

Founded in 1991, the EFP is a federation of 37 national periodontal societies that represents more than 16,000 periodontists, dentists, researchers, and oral-health professionals from Europe and around the world. It supports evidence-based science in periodontal and oral health, and it promotes events and campaigns aimed at both professionals and the public.

The EFP organizes EuroPerio, a world-leading congress in periodontology and implant dentistry, as well as other important professional and expert events such as Perio Master Clinic and Perio Workshop. The annual Gum Health Day on May 12, organized by the EFP and its member societies, brings key messages on gum health to millions of people across the world.

The EFP also organizes workshops and outreach campaigns with its partners: projects to date have covered the relationship between periodontal disease and diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and caries, as well as women’s oral health during pregnancy.

The EFP’s Journal of Clinical Periodontology is the authoritative scientific publication in this field. The federation also publishes JCP Digest, a monthly digest of research, and the Perio Insight magazine, which features experts' views and debates. The EFP’s work in education is also highly significant, notably its accreditation program for postgraduate education in periodontology and implant dentistry.
