On 25 June, join FDI Global Periodontal Health Project experts Profs. David Herrera, Jöerg Meyle, Lijian Jin and Stefan Renvert for their live webinar called The road to achieving and maintaining periodontal health. This webinar is the first in a three-part series.

Periodontal diseases as one of the major global epidemics and health burden markedly affect oral health and closely link to systemic health/general wellbeing, with enormous socioeconomic impacts and healthcare costs.

A huge challenge facing general dentists is how to successfully manage periodontitis patients for predictable treatment outcomes and long-term health maintenance.

It includes an evidence-based session on screening for periodontal disease and informs participants how to apply the new classification of periodontal diseases. The webinar concludes with an introduction to the FDI Disease Profile Assessment Tool and Chairside Guide.
