English term or phrase: Private practice, limited to AP
Hi! What does "AP" stand for here? Context:

Dr. XXXXX maintains a private practice in XXXXX, Germany, limited to AP.

It seems a private practice may be "limited to AP" or "limited to AP/CP"...


Thank you for your help!!

Explanation:
Si no me equivoco, el texto fuente se refiere a un dentista y cirujano maxilofacial especializado en la implantología. No mencionaré su nombre, para mantener la confidencialidad, pero si se busca "private practice" y "limited to AP", salen varias páginas sobre él.

En tal caso, me parece que AP = aggressive periodontitis y CP = chronic periodontitis. Es cierto que la sigla AP se aplica a veces a la periodontitis apical (apical periodontitis), y a veces significa adult periodontitis y de advanced periodontitis, y por otra parte se encuentra AgP como sigla de aggressive periodontitis:

No obstante, AP como sigla de aggressive periodontitis se encuentra con frecuencia, y en contraposición a CP = chronic periodontitis, es altamente probable que signifique esto:
