Presidents's Messages

Dear Distinguished Colleagues,

It gives me great pleasure to announce that the forthcoming 26th BaSS annual congress will be held in Skopje, North Macedonia, between 11th and 14th May 2023, continuing the tradition that began in Thessaloniki in 1996.

There is no doubt that this Congress of the Balkan Stomatological Society will contributes to promoting further professional cooperation and provide opportunities for mutual exchange of experience regarding modern dentistry. Its objectives include improving dental health services and dental medicine researches, as well as strengthening friendship among dental professionals who are committed to enhance their knowledge and skills.

After ten years, the City of Skopje will have the opportunity to host dentists not only from the Balkan region but also from countries around the world, and once again, they will have a chance to experience the impressive attractions and historic splendors in the country.

It is certain that this event with its conferences, round tables, scientific works, dental exhibitions and social programs will provide you with an experience that will be treasured for a lifetime.

I do really hope that you will join us on 11 May in Skopje, to share and gain insights about the up-to-date aspects of dental medicine currently being practiced worldwide.
