- Best of EuroPerio9, the World’s Leading Congress on Gum Disease

Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 23 June 2018 - A record 10,232 periodontists and other oral health professionals congregated from all over the world in Amsterdam from 20 to 23 June, to hear the latest research on periodontal disease and implants at EuroPerio9, the world’s leading congress in periodontology and implant dentistry.

EuroPerio9 participants came from 111 countries, with the Netherlands, Germany and France bringing the largest delegations from within Europe. Japan, Brazil and Mexico were the biggest groups from overseas. 25 % of delegates were non-European and around 40% of attendees were under 35 years of age.

The scientific programme included over 1,720 abstracts that were presented in research sessions, setting another record for EuroPerio9. Additionally, 134 speakers made invited presentations in 42 lectures and special sessions. The new formats (PerioTalks, nightmare sessions, live surgery, debates, treatment planning interactive sessions, perio contest and 3D sessions) were very popular with delegates. 308 moderated abstract and poster presentations also took place.

Among the memorable EuroPerio9 sessions, Michèle Reners, Congress Chair said that she would remember “the PedTalks, the Master Clinician Session on ‘Saving teeth’ and the nightmare sessions.”



Søren Jepsen, Chair of the Scientific Programme said: “So far, among the sessions I enjoyed the most I can name the science movie on peri-implantitis and prevention. Also the session on live surgery was quite amazing: 4,500 people sitting together quietly and concentrating on what was going on is something I had never experienced before. I think the session on the new classification of periodontal diseases is also a landmark event.”

The session on Friday about the new classification of periodontal and peri-implant diseases, a consensus from the recent World Workshop in Chicago, drew large crowds. Significant differences with the previous 1999 classification were announced, such as the replacement of the “chronic” and “aggressive” distinctions by a model with stages and grades.

Research on the impact of a healthy diet in the fast reduction of gingivitis, and a study on the influence of periodontal health on the performance of elite athletes presented at EuroPerio9 press conferences proved popular with media. All three press conferences were live-streamed on Facebook.

Intense social media interactions also played an important role at EuroPerio9. The social media team made up of volunteers from various countries, reported on every single session at the congress. For the first time, a social media wall allowed attendants to see what was trending at the meeting through the #EuroPerio9 hasthtag. The newly launched EFP Instagram account now has over 1,100 followers and the EuroPerio9 playlist on the EFP YouTube channel had over 10,400 views. Facebook engagement was up 200% and Twitter impressions were up 30%. Regarding the EFP website, on Wednesday a record peak of 13,000 individuals looked at 54,000 pages.

With record-breaking attendance and the best research in periodontal science, EuroPerio is confirmed as the place to be for the latest news about periodontal health.

EuroPerio10 will take place 2-5 June 2021 at the Bella Centre in Copenhagen, Denmark. See you there!
