COPENHAGEN, Denmark: Organised by the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP), EuroPerio10 is being held from 15 to 18 June at Bella Center Copenhagen in Denmark. EuroPerio, the leading congress in periodontics and implant dentistry, is usually held triennially, but had to be postponed last year because of the pandemic. EuroPerio10 has an impressive speaker line-up of more than 130 experts from over 30 countries who will cover the latest trends in periodontics and implant dentistry and their connection with other dental and medical disciplines.

With its wide range of scientific formats, EuroPerio10 has educational opportunities for general dentists, periodontists, oral surgeons, orthodontists, prosthodontists, dental hygienists, dental nurses, other dental and medical professionals, and dental students. The formats include live mucogingival and bone regeneration surgeries, interactive sessions, nightmare sessions illustrating worst-case treatment scenarios, video sessions, debates, interviews and symposia. Particular attention will be devoted to the EFP clinical guidelines on the treatment of periodontitis. Additionally, the latest guideline on the treatment of Stage IV periodontitis will be presented at the congress.

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

In addition to the regular programme, EuroPerio10 offers participants the opportunity to attend sponsored workshops and networking events, such as the welcome reception on Wednesday evening. Other highlights of the congress include abstract presentations, contests, award ceremonies, a major industry exhibition and the EFP Village as the meeting point for the dozens of national societies that constitute the EFP.

“EuroPerio is the main event organised by the EFP and appeals to a large, global audience,” said Prof. Lior Shapira, past president of the EFP. The latest editions—EuroPerio8 in London in the UK in 2015 and EuroPerio9 in Amsterdam in the Netherlands in 2028—each attracted around 10,000 attendees from more than 100 countries.

Commenting on the growing participant numbers, Prof. Phoebus Madianos, chair of EuroPerio10, said in an interview: “The reason why participant numbers have increased over the years is simply because it is the world’s leading congress in periodontics and implant dentistry and has the best speakers, the latest topics and many opportunities to network with colleagues from all over the world.”

In response to being asked what dental professionals can look forward to at the congress, he replied: “They will be able to learn from the best experts in the world, since there is a faculty of more than 120 top international speakers. They can update and expand their skills and their knowledge with authoritative, state-of-theart presentations on all hot periodontics topics.”

He continued: “They can choose from a huge variety of topics and approaches and enjoy the certainty that, at any given moment, there will be a session that is just perfect for them. They can network, build relationships with colleagues, discuss ideas, draw up projects and find the latest proposals from the dental industry. They can enjoy a lively congress in a lovely city. All in all, for four days, they can see what periodontics and implant dentistry will look like in the coming years.”

The EFP was founded in 1991 and is an umbrella organisation of 30 national scientific societies devoted to promoting research, education and awareness of periodontal science and practice.
