The 2017 Periodontal Classification

Sunday, September 26, 2021         
Live Interactive Webinar 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM (CST)




In 2017, the American Academy of Periodontology held a joint symposium with the European Federation of Periodontology to review the status of periodontal classification, which is necessary to properly diagnose and treat patients. This workshop was attended by world leaders in clinical periodontics and in periodontal research. An updated classification system was released in the summer of 2018. This course will review the classification of periodontal and peri-implant diseases and conditions, taking into account the etiology, pathogenesis, and natural history of these diseases and conditions. 



Upon completion of this course, you will be able to: 

  • Define Periodontal disease
  • Introduce the new periodontal classification
  • Explain the concept of staging and grading
  • Discuss risk factors
  • Undertake treatment planning: non-surgical and surgical.
