BSP Awards & Prizes
Did you know... to reflect our commitment to progression and innovation, the BSP awards annual prizes for research into periodontology, both for undergraduate, postgraduate and qualified dentists, hygienists and therapists?
In addition, we have introduced a new award this year – The Systematic Review Prize.
This prize will be awarded annually, with the object of encouraging researchers in the early stages of their career. The Prize takes the form of a cash award of £1000.00, together with a certificate (the prize may be split if there is more than one winner).

The EFP have launched a toolkit on their website relating to the 2017 Classification. The toolkit – available at perioclassification.efp.org – comprises five guidance notes and four expert presentations, with infographics and videos to be added later. Also available are the introduction and consensus reports of the 2017 World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-implant Diseases and Conditions, which form the basis of the material in the toolkit.
We have received two communications from The Office of the Chief Dental Officer which we would like to share with our membership:
In November 2017, the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) launched The Oral Health & Pregnancy project. The aim of the Oral Health and Pregnancy project, a collaboration between the EFP and Oral-B, was to promote women’s oral health during pregnancy through guidelines for patients and for healthcare professionals.
The GDC have recently released some interesting analysis and positive helpful guidelines on the volume and nature of cases that they have had to deal with, and what can determine how things either go forwards or are dismissed at an early stage. Although of course we know that we will all strive to offer the best care that we can, you may find it informative and useful to look at these documents (which are very readable) and perhaps share with colleagues in your teams.
