Practical Periodontics is a new concept as it consists of a printed book and a supporting website. The editors are only too aware that information dates rapidly and textbooks soon become out of date. With the help and agreement of Elsevier they have therefore developed this website, which supplements the printed book and enables new material and information to be added. The website includes areas with:

· more than 400 multiple-choice questions based on the content of the book, which readers may find useful when preparing for examinations;

· the programme Assessing the Periodontium, which includes videos showing how to perform this clinical task [this feature will be launched shortly];

· case studies;

· examples of referral letters.

The website will be updated periodically. The editors encourage users to send them feedback and suggestions which should be e-mailed to
