Dear colleagues and collaborators,

We have the pleasure to announce

the 10th Edition of the International Symposium  Napoca Biodent 2021

November 5th –  6th, 2021

New Challenges in Dental Research

       Napoca Biodent International Symposium, organized by the Faculty of Dentistry of University of Medicine and Pharmacy “ Iuliu Haţieganu” Cluj-Napoca, brings together the scientific experience of researchers in various fields, focused on the study of properties, methods of investigation and indications of biomaterials in dentistry, innovative technologies and clinical applications.

Over the years, this symposium has become a tradition for dentists and researchers and an opportunity to exchange ideas and start new collaborations. The emphasis on dental education is also a factor that plays an important big role in this event.

The program includes conferences held by national and international speakers, researchers, and clinicians, as well as sessions of oral presentations and posters. Due to the current situation, this year’s format will be on-line.

We are convinced that your participation will mark an important contribution to the scientific success of our manifestation.
