It is my pleasure to welcome you to this special issue of Dental Update on the topic of Periodontology. As President of the British Society of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry (BSP), it is my sincere hope that you will find the articles in this issue enjoyable to read, informative, and a good reference source for the future.

Work on this special issue was led by the BSP's Early Career Group, and began about one year ago, with the selection of the topics and the authors for the articles. 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 contexts, and I hope you will agree that the end result is a very accessible and practical series that will be of value to dental teams wherever they are working.
