The new periodontal classification
Due to overwhelming interest in periodontitis, Dr Christopher Barker, Specialist Periodontist is delivering a second webinar on the topic.
The first webinar, held on Thursday 28 February, focussed on the current thinking about how periodontitis develops, and the symptoms and risk factors you need to be aware of when diagnosing and treating your patients.
This periodontal webinar focuses on the new classification and active therapies available.
Designed for all dental practitioners, particularly those in the early stage of their career, this live one-hour webinar will provide an update about the new classification scheme for periodontal and peri‐implant diseases and conditions, and how it applies to you in practice.
With an opportunity for real time questions and answers during the broadcast, this is the ideal way to have the expertise of Dental Protection brought directly to you.
By the end of the webinar you will:
- Understand how the new classification affects your practice
- Be aware of active therapies available for your patients
