The European Federation of Periodontology (EFP), founded in 1991, is an umbrella organisation of 30 national scientific societies devoted to promoting research, education and awareness of periodontal science and practice.

It represents more than 14,000 periodontists and gum-health professionals from Europe, northern Africa, and the Middle East.

The EFP, whose strategic vision is expressed by the slogan “Periodontal health for a better life“, leads the global conversation on periodontal health.
