In 2018, the official proceedings of the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions (WWDC) were published. This novel system aims to use client-centered data to assign a stage and grade that may provide a more individualized periodontal care and risk assessment. This webinar will focus on summarizing the rationale for an updated periodontal diagnosis system, the changes adapted in the 2017 AAP WWDC as they relate to the diagnosis of periodontitis and gingivitis, and key strategies for utilization of the updated diagnostic system for improved client care.
