In 2017, the American Academy
of Periodontology (AAP) and the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP)
developed the Classification of Periodontal and Perio-ImplantDiseases and Conditions. These proceedings
update the previous classification system set in 1999. According to the new
system, clinical attachment loss and radiographic bone loss remain key identifiers
for the extent and severity of oral disease present.
It is critical that dental educators begin introducing classification changes into clinical and didactic curriculum to prepare students for national examinations. Join us for this free webinar to identify key challenges in the implementation of this new classification system within clinical and didactic courses. The presenters will discuss and explore important changes and options for curriculum delivery.
- Describe the 2017 AAP Disease Classification.
- Identify barriers to applying the 2017 AAP Disease Classification.
- Integrate resources from the 2017 AAP Disease Classification into your institution’s curriculum.
