The Natural Dentist sponsored the 2008 American Academy of Periodontology Research Forum Poster Session and AAP awards in basic research, clinical research, and clinical impact.
The AAP Research Forum, sponsored by The Natural Dentist, provides a platform for researchers and academicians to present new and significant research and information covering all aspects of periodontology.
This year marked the first year the session was changed to a competition format, with a cash prize awarded to the best in clinical and basic research.
