INNOVATIONS IN PERIODONTICS

Innovations in Periodontics sessions showcase advances in clinical periodontics, basic sciences or related subjects that have a direct application to patient care. The target speaker is anyone who has a validated innovation to share. Individual and team-based presentations are welcome for this session.

2020 Annual Meeting: Call for Innovations in Periodontics abstracts

The Continuing Education Oversight Committee (CEOC) is soliciting presentations that address advances in clinical periodontics, basic sciences, or related subjects for the Innovations in Periodontics program for the 106th Annual Meeting to be held Oct. 31 - Nov. 3, 2020, in Honolulu, Hawaii. These sessions will consist of 15-minute presentations. A five-minute question-and-answer period will follow each lecture.

There will be four sessions offered:

Advances in Periodontics: These two sessions are intended to showcase clinical advances and/or translational research with direct application to patient care. The target speaker is anyone who has validated innovation to share. Individual and team-based presentations are welcome for this session.

Rising Stars: This session is intended for speakers in practice 10 years or less following post-graduate training. The selected candidates will receive training to present their material in a brief live-platform showcase.

Perio Open Mic: This session is a platform to present a pivotal concept, perspective, or paradigm-shifting philosophy. The target presenter is a mid- to late-career periodontal clinician or scientist with a validated innovation to showcase. Unlike Advances in Periodontics, this is the forum to present a philosophy, ideology, or thought, rather than a case presentation.

Individual presentation abstract submission procedure:

  • Abstracts will be subjected to a blind review and scoring by members of the CEOC. 
  • Presenters will be informed of the committee's decision in Spring 2020.
  • Presenters can submit as many abstracts as they would like. However, no one can present more than once.
  • In addition to a 1,000-word abstract, you will need to provide the following information about your presentation:
    • The title, which should be 10 words or fewer, and not include brand and/or trade names or acronyms
    • Which session (Rising Stars, Open Mic or Advances) you would like to speak in (please not that this decision will rest with the review committee, and you might not get the session of your choice)
    • Why this presentation is innovative
    • How your presentation impacts practicing periodontists
    • Which of the following topics it covers:
      • Emerging Concepts and Innovative Therapies
      • Implant Surgery and Prosthetic Rehabilitation
      • Interdisciplinary Therapy (ortho, endo, restorative)
      • Leadership, Personal, and Practice Development
      • Oral Pathology, Oral Medicine, and Oral Diagnosis
      • Periodontal and Systemic Interrelationships
      • Periodontal Plastic and Soft Tissue Surgery
      • Sedation and Anxiety Management
      • Tissue Engineering and Hard Tissue Reconstruction
      • Treatment of Periodontal Diseases and Peri-Implant Diseases

Team-based presentation abstract submission for Advances in Periodontics procedure:

  • The team-based presentation will consist of presenting a case and then describing the treatment and rationale for therapy, or an etiopathogenetic mechanism or pathway.
  • Teams are limited to two speakers.
  • Teams will need to submit one of the following cases:
    • Periodontal-restorative dentate aesthetic
    • Complex periodontal-restorative aesthetic implant
    • Complex periodontal-orthodontic demonstrating Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (PAOO) or orthodontic site development for implants
    • Correct aesthetic implant complication with interdisciplinary therapy
       

Interested parties should submit abstracts and cases for committee consideration by Dec. 13, 2019 via the Abstract Submission website. For questions, contact Continuing Education Manager Audra Rothermel at audra@perio.org or 312-573-3216.
