EuroPerio Series begins with expert session exploring bone regeneration
 

THE FIRST of seven EuroPerio Series online educational sessions will take place on Monday 13 September, when the focus will be on the hot topic of bone regeneration.
     Chaired by Prof Mariano Sanz (Complutense University of Madrid, Spain, and co-chair of the EFP Workshop Committee), Bone regeneration – the present faces the future: a conversation between the present and the future features presentations from three leading clinicians:
  • Istvan Urban (Hungary) on the importance of the surgical approach and effective use of guided bone regeneration.
  • Cecilie Gjerde (Norway) on autologous mesenchymal cells and synthetic bone replacement grafts.
  • Saso Ivanovski (Australia) on the use of customised scaffolds.
The session takes place from 18:00 to 20:00 (CET) and will be recorded for later on-demand viewing over the following four weeks.
     The sessions are free for people who have already registered and paid for the EuroPerio10 congress, which takes place in Copenhagen from June 15 to 18, 2022.
     Registration for each individual session of the EuroPerio Series costs €35. Registration for all seven sessions costs €195 (a 20% discount on booking for individual sessions).
