ScSP conference August 2024

Dear friends,

Scandinavian society of periodontology has a long tradition of offering conferences with excellent clinical, scientific and socially content, located in beautiful places in the Nordic countries. This year will be no exception as Visby, Gotland will be the venue for the next ScSP conference. 

New to this year is that we are also inviting dental hygienists as associated members of our society, and we celebrate this by focusing on the interdisciplinary collaboration in treatment of periodontal diseases.

The program will contain diverse lectures held by excellent speakers with backgrounds as dental hygienists, periodontist, prosthetics etc. 

Join us August 22-24th, in Visby, in a social and professional experience in one of the definitively most beautiful islands in the Nordic countries!
