This course originally presented at the ADA SmileCon Virtual 2021.

This course is for clinicians wanting a fundamental understanding of the official proceedings from the 2017 World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions, co-presented by the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) and the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP).
The result of the AAP and EFP gathering resulted in a redesigned disease classification framework that guides comprehensively centered, patient care plans. This session will present an overview of this landmark gathering and guide the clinician in creating a periodontal diagnostic statement.

Learning Objectives:
Identify the main changes to the 1999 classification
• Describe the four main categories of the 2018 AAP Classification
• Identify Periodontitis cases using the staging and grading systems to create a periodontal diagnostic statement

Presenter: Penny Hatzimanolaikis, MSc, Clinical Associate Professor, University of British Columbia
