Dear distinguished members of the Balkan Stomatological Society,

Dear Colleagues in the Balkan Countries,

It is my pleasure to invite you to attend the 24th Congress of the Balkan Stomatological Society (BaSS) which will be organized this year inTirana, Albania at the Tirana International Hotel and Congress Centre on the 9th through the 11th of May 2019, under the Presidency of Assoc. Professor Dr. Edit Xhajanka .

The Balkan Stomatological Society (BaSS) following its tradition of more than twenty years in organizing, as per its constitutional obligation, another annual Congress with the purpose of bringing together dentists from all the Balkan countries to exchange scientific knowledge and share clinical experiences for the benefit of the oral health care of the people residing in the Balkans.

The chosen theme of this Congress is “Contemporary Approaches and Challenges in Dentistry”. This addresses treatment modalities that have been developed based on the modern materials and devises that are used in contemporary Dentistry. The implementation of treatment approaches based on the use of new technologies tends to change the shape of Dentistry of the 21st century, and the provision of oral healthcare to our patients.

This Congress has also another purpose except the pure scientific one and this is the opportunity it will provide once more, to bring together dentists form the Balkan and other European countries to spend a long weekend together socializing, meeting old friends, making new ones enhancing communications between professionals form the Balkan area and Europe.

With this message I would like to wish my dear friend and colleague Assoc. Professor Dr. Edit Xhajanka and her team a great success with the organization and extend an invitation to all the colleagues to come to Tirana this coming May.

With Kind Regards,

Prof. Argirios Pissiotis

BaSS President
