Join us at EuroPerio in Amsterdam for a special educational session led by Dr Cortellini and Dr Tonetti on a new clinical tool for decision making in regenerative surgery.
This session presents the work undertaken by the Florence Task Force™, a group of expert clinicians dedicated to education in periodontal surgery.
About the Florence Task Force™
The Florence Task Force™ is a group of highly respected clinicians who have been working for the past 2 years on the dissemination of education in periodontology with a focus on the positioning of Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR) within the various treatment options for aggressive periodontitis.
Following a brainstorming in Milan in July 2015 with a group of 8 highly respected periodontics chaired by Professor NP Lang, SUNSTAR decided to partner with periodontology experts for educational purpose.
The objective was to provide guidance on when and how treatment of intrabony defects with GTR may be appropriate in periodontitis and in aggressive periodontitis.
A task force was put together and included around 15 international clinicians who saw a need to revisit this technique and to provide guidance as to when its use may be more appropriate as an alternative to other techniques. The clinicians were representative of both the university setting and private practice, united by the common mission of saving teeth. This became known as the Florence Task Force ™.
The work of the Florence GTR Task Force has resulted in educational presentations on the appropriate use of regenerative surgical treatments throughout Europe, and has been used in several types of events by the the Task Force members, including a lecture in a scientific congress, an educational specialized course or a workshop training program.
