The Swedish Society of Periodontology and Implantology is preparing to host its annual meeting for members coinciding with a two-day seminar event on 19. – 20.1.2023 in Gothenburg, Sweden. At the event, Finnish health tech company Koite Health Oy will also be present to demonstrate its Lumoral innovation that has already revolutionized Finland’s preventive dental care market.
At the event, current topics related to periodontology and implantology will be discussed to bring new insight to dentistry professionals in both specialist fields as well as to general dentists and dental hygienists.
On the second day of the event, the Head of the Division of Reconstructive Dentistry at the Osteology Foundation in Zurich, Switzerland, Daniel Thoma, will hold a presentation: “Why ridge preservation simplifies implant therapy and reduces patient morbidity.” Meanwhile, Professor and Doctor in dental surgical medicine, Sofia Aroca, is scheduled to hold her presentation “State of the art in soft tissue management around teeth.”

The EFP is a federation of 37 national periodontal societies representing more than 16,000 periodontists, dentists, researchers, and oral-health professionals in Europe and around the world.
