Periodontal disease starts with a biofilm-based infection that creates a wound that, in turn, induces the inflammatory cascade. This wound must be taken seriously and treated at the earliest possible stages. We tend to think of our diagnoses as dental diagnoses; but there is no such thing as a dental diagnosis. The updated AAP classification system created in 2017 represents a multi-dimensional staging and grading framework for periodontitis and implant health and disease status. A hallmark feature of the updated system brings opportunities for more case specific patient care. Accurate coding for dental, medical and for electronic health records keeping requires a documented medical necessity including a medical diagnosis. Diagnosing, treatment planning, and executing appropriate and necessary periodontal therapies will be reviewed utilizing case presentation.


  • Discuss the importance of properly diagnosing and coding patient treatment.
  • Recognize treatment modalities that are evidence-based protocols for specific types of periodontal diseases according to the new classification system.
  • Review the AAP staging/grading system for periodontal disease and how it will benefit patient care and management
