Course Description: This podcast collection pays tribute to the late Dr. Steven Offenbacher, a renowned periodontal researcher who is considered the “father of periodontal medicine.” During his 40-year career, Dr. Offenbacher investigated the mechanisms of periodontitis and its links to other diseases. The speakers in this series have previously collaborated with Dr. Offenbacher or taken inspiration from his work, and they offer unique perspectives on their latest research related to inflammation and pathogenesis, periodontal medicine, and precision oral health. The podcasts are based on their papers published in a special Journal of Periodontology supplement dedicated to Dr. Offenbacher and supported by Colgate-Palmolive Company.
