Illinois Society of Periodontists

Welcome to the official website of the Illinois Society of Periodontists (ISOP). The Illinois Society of Periodontists is the state affiliate of the American Academy of Periodontology that was established in 1963. Our mission is to promote the practice of Periodontics in the State of Illinois by being an advocate for Illinois periodontal interests as well as providing our members with resources and education to strengthen our profession. The ISOP represents the interests of Periodontists at the state level and is the point of contact between our specialty and other dental organizations in our state and with the AAP. The ISOP also provides up-to-date continuing education on topics most vital to the health and welfare of our patients as well as gives you the opportunity to network with your colleagues in periodontics. We strongly encourage you to join the Illinois Society of Periodontists as it represents the voice of the periodontist in the state. We look forward to working with you and invite you to contact us with any suggestions you may have or information we may help you with.

Legislation

Illinois legislative issues • Dent-IL PAC By: Andrew Browar, DDS; ISOP representative

Dent-IL-Pac supports the legislative initiatives and interests of Illinois dentists on behalf of the Illinois State Dental Society. 2012 efforts include:

1. Successfully passed ruling requiring Delta Dental to pay to non-participating dentists for the Illinois State Employee Plan.

2. Successful blockage of the most recent attempts to allow independent practice by hygienists.

3. Blockage of a provision for assistants to provide “coordinated care” without the supervision of a dentist.

4. Blocked attempts to remove required fluoridation of water supplies.

Remember to support Dent-IL-PAC when you renew you ADA/ISDS membership. Also support ADPAC. These contributions pay dividends in limiting unnecessary burdens on our practices.

News from the American Academy of Periodontology

Illinois falls under District 4. We have 3 representatives in our district, two of which are local to IL: Dr. Greg Fauth (Aurora, IL) and Dr. Tim Walsh (Berwyn, IL). Current matters pertinent from the AAP include:

1. The election of a new AAP Executive Director will be announced at the 98th annual meeting in Los Angeles (September 29-October 2, 2012). The academy has been on a grueling search to replace Alice DeForest, who will be retiring after 26 years of dedicated service to the AAP.

From the Department of Professional Regulations

1. The Illinois Department of Professional Regulations has voted to require dentists applying for a license to have taken the Periodontal Patient Portion of the ADEX Exam. As we all know ,it is one procedure to assure the folks understand the basics of Periodontal Care.

2. Governor Quinn signed the bill to allow non-participating dentists with Delta who see state workers to have assignment of benefits. This is another action to help us all in the care of our patients.
