COPENHAGEN, Denmark: From 15 to 18 June, the dental community gathered for the tenth EuroPerio, the world’s leading congress in periodontics and implant dentistry, organised by the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP). According to official figures, more than 7,000 people from 110 countries attended the event in Copenhagen.
Prof. Phoebus Madianos, chair of EuroPerio10, said: “EuroPerio attracts the best speakers, scientists and clinicians from around the world to the Olympic Games of dental congresses. This is the main event organised by the EFP, and the growing success of EuroPerio is mainly due to the scientific programme, which delivers the present and future in the science and practice of periodontics and implant dentistry.”
Over the course of four days, over 130 key opinion leaders in the field from more than 30 countries worldwide presented over 900 research abstracts in a total of 41 scientific sessions on emerging issues of interest to practitioners, scientists and academics. Research was presented on novel topics such as the role of artificial intelligence in the diagnosis and treatment of periodontitis. New evidence was revealed on previously investigated areas, including the long-term outcome of periodontal treatment and the links between periodontal disease and heart conditions, diabetes, premature birth and lung function. In addition, the first European guideline on the treatment of Stage IV periodontitis was discussed.
EFP President Prof. Andreas Stavropoulos said: “The EFP is the global benchmark in periodontal health and disease. The main mission of the EFP is to raise awareness about the importance of periodontal disease and health, and our motto is periodontal health for a better life. This is what we communicate to society and to politicians so that we can influence decision-making and improve oral health.”
Given that 66% of participants were under 45 years of age and 33% under 35, Prof. Stavropoulos commented: “This edition has attracted a very young audience, which clearly indicated the interest in periodontics of the young generation. While this edition has now closed its doors, we look forward to seeing the dental community at EuroPerio11 from 14 to 17 May 2025 in Vienna in Austria.”
