Periodontology was recognized as the speciality in Azerbaijan.
The speciality of Periodontology was recently recognized in Azerbaijan by Cabinet of Ministry of Azerbaijan Republic.
Azerbaijani Society of Periodontology (PERIOAZ) started the active campaign for speciality recognition in 2017, immediately after being accepted into European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) family at the general assembly in Santiago de Compostela (Spain) in 2017. Both Cavid Ahmedbeyli (President) and Aslan Mammadov (EFP Delegate) were in close contact with key authorities from Azerbaijani Ministry of Health and main universities in order to get the recognition of Periodontology as the specialty.
The position paper including the general information about main activities of PERIOAZ and EFP; global EFP projects with the aim of prevention of oral diseases and increasing awareness of the impact of periodontal disease on general health among dentists, non-dental professionals and public; full translation in national language and dissemination of these projects in the country; world-wide recognized specialities in dentistry; the importance of speciality recognition in Azerbaijan with the future tremendous effect on early diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease in partnership with the other recognized medical specialities and positive impact on the level of undergraduate and postgraduate periodontal education; the key facts about recent recognition of the speciality in Turkey and other European countries were prepared and send to the government officials at different times. The National Society was also the pioneer for the recognition of other dental specialties (Endodontics, Restorative Dentistry, Orthopedic Dentistry, Pediatric Dentistry, Orthodontics). Until recent, only General Stomatology (Dentistry) and Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery were recognized specialities in Azerbaijan.
The speciality recognition will increase the motivation for the postgraduate periodontal education and help getting automatic government equivalency for the recognition of their postgraduate dental education diploma that they have received from universities abroad. Furthermore, it will help the patients in government and private clinics get easier access for more dedicated specialist diagnosis and treatment of severe periodontal and peri-implant diseases and reduce its negative level on national healthcare system.

A new global classification of periodontal and peri-implant diseases and conditions has been published.
The comprehensive classification was based upon the most contemporary evidence and includes a staging and grading system for periodontitis, indicating severity and extent of disease, accounting for lifetime disease experience and taking into account the patient’s overall health status. The complete review and consensus reports are published today simultaneously in both the Journal of Clinical Periodontology (EFP) and the Journal of Periodontology (AAP).
The new classification is the outcome of a joint workshop held by the European Federation of Periodontology and the American Academy of Periodontology in Chicago in November 2017. The workshop included over 100 experts from Europe, America, Australia and Asia who reviewed existing literature to create a global consensus that enables care to be standardised for patients around the world.
In the new classification, clinical health is defined for the first time and periodontitis is described in four stages, ranging from Stage 1 (least severe) to Stage 4 (most severe). The risk and rate of disease progression has been categorised into three grades from lowest risk of progression (Grade A) to the highest (Grade C). The grading considers risk factors such as smoking and the presence of concomitant diseases, such as diabetes.
