President of the Scientific Committee

My dear friends and colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to the 25th Balkan Stomatological Society (BaSS) Congress. With great satisfaction I can say that previous BaSS Congresses held in Bosnia and Hercegovina (Sarajevo 2006 and Banja Luka 2016) have been visited by a big number of participants and a big number of scientific, oral and poster presentations have been presented.

We are celebrating a quarter of a century of BaSS Congress. Let my shortly reflect on the past Congresses and BaSS in general. Since the BaSS Congresses started we hae a continuum without a pause, year after year, although it has not been easy to prepare and host such a great Congress. Thanks to the cooperation and understanding of the members of BaSS Council, BaSS was able to prepare and host a Congress each year for the past 25 years. During those years BaSS hade its ups and downs, but thanking the good will of the members of BaSS Council and our friends and colleagues supporting the BaSS idea, BaSS and BaSS Congresses continue to grow and develop during this first 25 years.

BaSS Congresses have been developed as a platform for exchange of ideas, knowledge, experience, contacts and in the past years we are witnessing that it reached its goals. But the success give us no right to rest but to improve ourselves and goals that we have set in front of the Balkan Stomatological Society.

My dear friends and colleagues, let as meet again in BaSS Congress in Sarajevo 2020 and continue to improve our dental and academic knowledge and our friendship.


Sincerely yours,


Assist. Prof. Dr. Mihael Stanojevic

President of the Scientific Committee of the 25th BaSS Congress
