BRUSSELS, Belgium: The European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) is currently making the final preparations for International Perio Master Clinic 2022, which will take place in León in Mexico on 25 and 26 February. The conference is another step in the EFP’s continued work towards improving the quality of education for dentists around the world. This will be the first time that the clinical expertise and hands-on approach of the Perio Master Clinic will be brought to the American continent.

The programme will feature nine sessions focusing on current and future challenges in hard- and soft-tissue aesthetic rehabilitation around teeth and dental implants. Speakers from Mexico, elsewhere in Latin America, and the US will share their expertise with small audiences in order to enhance the learning experience of attendees.

Dr Alejandro García, chair of the Perio Master Clinic 2022 and former president of the EFP-affiliated Mexican Association of Periodontology, commented in a press release: “At the Mexican Association of Periodontology, we are proud and delighted to welcome all dental practitioners interested in improving their skills in the fascinating area of tissue regeneration to attend this unprecedented event next February in our country. We have been working jointly with the EFP for two years in preparing this world-class conference.”

He added: “León is a very well-connected city in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato, close to major touristic and historic sites such as Guanajuato City and San Miguel de Allende. Our attendees can easily reach León by plane, via its international airport, or by car, thanks to an extensive road network.”

Prof. Lior Shapira, president of the EFP, said: “We are excited […] to have succeeded in making International Perio Master Clinic 2022 the first major dental event in the region after the worst outbursts of the COVID-19 pandemic. As we celebrate the first 30 years of the EFP after its foundation in 1991, we remain committed to a global approach to periodontology, and consider this conference a major step forward in our mission of promoting periodontal health for a better life everywhere.”
