Periodontology

Periodontist

Periodontal disease, which destroys the tooth-supporting structures, is highly prevalent in the UK and around the world, and as such is considered a serious public health problem with a real impact on the healthcare system. The need for dentists and dental hygienists to provide suitable basic periodontal treatment has greatly increased in recent decades and as such, an awareness of and ability to treat periodontal disease is a must for all dental professionals.

We have recently launched CPD courses which focus on periodontology and basic surgical skills. Each course includes lectures backed by scientific evidence and are complemented by relevant hands-on workshops. Our short courses are aimed at dental practitioners hoping to acquire more knowledge and clinical skills in periodontics as a way to complement their day to day clinical activities.
