Annual activity report – measuring the results of the editorial team

Dear readers, Dear authors,

Measuring the passage of time is, more often than not, a difficult, challenging occupation. The attempt is all the more interesting as we are looking at a project in which we are totally involved.
Dental professionals in Central and Eastern Europe have limited acccess to listed jourals in order to publish their research so as improve their academic standing, and this motivated and determined me to create a new specialized journal.
In the academic environment, more than 1.8 million dentists worldwide1 come from 13,711 higher education institutions (WHO, 2019)2 and there are 20,164 titles for oral science, 1,630 titles for oral health and 155 titles in the DENTISTRY category, as well as in ORAL SURGERY & MEDICINE, listed in the Master Journal List (Web of Science, 2020)3.[…]

The gold standard for visualizing the possibilities of aesthetic dental makeover directly on the patient: IvoSmile

During the latest International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne, Germany, as a dental aesthetics enthusiast, I myself surveyed the market for materials, devices and appliances for dental aesthetics. While visiting the Ivoclar Vivadent AG stand, I met Dr. Andreea Czimermann, our representative who was kind enough to show me the latest news. My attention was immediately captured by the communication and counseling tool for dental professionals based on “augmented reality” called IvoSmile. This digital technology facilitates communication between dentists, patients and dental technicians and makes the design process simpler and easier to understand…
