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.

Dear Colleagues and Friends:
I am sending my warmest wishes to the Balkan Stomatological Society for the support of Albania in organizing the BaSS Congress in 2019. Even though the Albanian Dental Association is not the organizer of this meeting we are keen and support all national and international dental meetings that take place in the country. It is very important for our profession to improve knowledge and implement them in our daily practice. I am sure that these activities will be able to improve research and scientific communication between our countries. In addition, ethics and professionalism play very important roles in the fast-changing world of dentistry and we would like to have this integrated in the congress.
Albania is a friendly and welcoming country. It is an ideal place to attract participation from Balkan Countries and around the world.
I do believe that all the BaSS member Countries will give their contribution toward the success of the Congress. We all CAN make a difference.
