“I thought the Water Flossers were well designed and efficient, offering an effective alternative for patients who don’t like using interdental brushes or string floss. I think the option of being able to add diluted mouthwash instead of water to the products will also prove beneficial for some patients’ gingival health.
“Due to the tolerable and easy to use design, I believe the Waterpik® Water Flossers are particularly suitable for perio patients, or those who are already motivated and desire optimal oral health.
“I was pleased to receive a free unit at EuroPerio8 – a few of my patients had already been using Waterpik® products and now I feel much more confident with them.”
Clinically proven to reduce bleeding and reverse the signs of gingivitis, Waterpik® Water Flossers are ideal for all of your patients, whether they require implants, crowns or bridges, or orthodontic treatment.

These congresses, held every three years, aim to implement the EFP vision of "Periodontal health for a better life". BSDHT President Michaela ONeill, addressing delegates from the stage said:
"On behalf of the British Society of Dental Hygiene and Therapy, I would like to thank the European Federation of Periodontology and the British Society of Periodontology for what promises to be a very stimulating and productive few days.
My role, and the role of my fellow dental hygienists and therapists, is one part of a vast chain of dentistry that leads to good oral health.
We’re constantly trying to translate our research into patient friendly messages.
The recent results of the European Workshop in Periodontology have focussed new light on how we thought we should educate our patients – especially as it included what looks now like a one hundred and eighty degree turn in the new recommendation for interdental brushing rather than flossing.
But beyond conference, and indeed academia, it is crucial that we are "people facing" and that we can filter the messages of a major conference like this directly to our clinical staff: they are the gatekeepers who will present your messages direct to our patients.
And on behalf of the BSDHT, we are proud that the importance of our role within periodontology is being reflected at EuroPerio 8."
