BSP flowchart released
The BSP has created a decision-making flowchart (algorithm) to help practitioners adapt to the new classification. This document is essential for all practitioners and Periodontists in guiding you through the decision-making process to arrive at the correct diagnosis for your patients. You can view and download a pdf version of the flowchart on our Publications page.
The BSP team are in the process of producing a laminated version, which we hope to distribute in the coming weeks.

Periodontal diagnosis in the context of the 2017 classification system of periodontal diseases and conditions - implementation in clinical practice
As you will be aware, the British Society of Periodontology set up a working group of specialists and general practitioners to review the 2017 Classification of Periodontal Diseases that was announced at EuroPerio 9. They have worked tirelessly to look at the process of implementation of the 2017 classification for the UK to produce something that is workable and practical in UK general and specialist practice. The BSP implementation document has now been published in the British Dental Journal. The paper describes the salient points of the 2017 classification, rationalises the differences between the 2017 and 1999 classifications, provides BSP management guidelines and an illustrative case study.
The BSPerio have produced a series of webinars which discuss and explain the need for the new classification.
The latest Change4Life campaign is asking parents to “Make a swap when you next shop” to halve their children’s sugar intake from some everyday food and drinks. • Children are currently consuming around 2,800 extra sugar cubes per year.
Children have already exceeded the maximum recommended sugar intake for an 18 year old by the time they reach their tenth birthday, according to Public Health England (PHE)1. This is based on their total sugar consumption from the age of two.
The BSP and it’s President, Dr Mark Ide, wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year, as we look forward to an exciting 2019.
