Course Benefits:

Periodontal Surgical Management skills are skills that every GDP must possess to practice effectively in modern dentistry.

The importance of Periodontal Tissue optimisation before any restorative procedure is the key to successful disease control and for improving long term prognosis of the whole dentition and it is not a specific and exclusive skill of the Perio Specialist anymore.

This CPD course aims to provide all the supporting knowledge, an evidence based best practice ‘Decision Making Flow Chart’ and manual skills in Periodontal Flaps.
