Welcome to the special issue on Periodontology

This month's issue is on the topic of Periodontogy. Work on this special issue was led by the BSP’s Early Career Group. The articles were written by a range of colleagues from across the country, including specialists and non-specialists, some senior while others are in the earlier stages of their career, and some based in hospitals and universities, as well as those who are practice based. This mix of authors was intentional, to create teams of authors at different stages of their careers and working in different context. Happy reading!
