Abstract: Personalized medicine is a medical model that involves the tailoring of healthcare - with medical decisions, practices, and/or products being customized to an individual patient. In this model, diagnostic testing is often employed for selecting appropriate and optimal therapies based on the context of a patient's genetic content or other epidemiologic, sociologic, molecular, physiologic, or cellular analyses. With the advent of major advances in periodontal medicine, including genomic discoveries and greater understanding of the multifactorial nature of periodontitis, it seems that the time is ripe to use personalized medicine as a model for personalized periodontics. This volume of Periodontology 2000 explores how new advances in our understanding of periodontitis within a medical model can evolve into new treatment strategies tailor-made for individual patients and not merely based on wholesale treatment paradigms.
