Overview

Course Author(s): Marianne Dryer, RDH, Med

Overview

The updated AAP classification system launched in 2018 represents a multi-dimensional staging and grading framework for periodontitis and implant disease status. Diagnosing, treatment planning, and executing appropriate and necessary periodontal therapies will be reviewed utilizing case presentations. A hallmark feature of the updated system brings opportunities for more case specific patient care. The need for calibration and clinician alignment with the new classification system will be discussed along with narrative examples for documentation recommendations.
