Dear Colleagues,

International Congress of Contemporary Pediatric Dentistry (ICCPD) is organized by the Contemporary Pediatric Dentistry, which is an international, scientific, open access, online-only journal, will take place on 1- 3 November 2021 as a fully virtual meeting.

Contemporary Pediatric Dentistry (www.contempepdiatrdent.org) aims to serve as a journal for scientifically based information in pediatric dentistry, with the intention of continually expanding the knowledge base in this area. The journal aims to promote the highest standard of education, practice and research in pediatric dentistry world-wide. This journal provides an open-access forum for the exchange of information about contemporary, new, and significant research in pediatric dentistry throughout the world.

We are now celebrating the first anniversary of the launch of Contemporary Pediatric Dentistry. To celebrate our remarkable scientific improvement within the last year, we are now organizing the first international congress which will take place under the theme “Contemporary Approaches in Pediatric Dentistry”.

We have now a fantastic heritage in pediatric dentistry, thanks not only to eminent clinicians, academicians and patients involved in research but also to the combined knowledge we gain from concomitant disciplines. Attending the ICCPD congress means sharing our experiences and knowledge to uncover new insights on the contemporary pediatric dental practice, education, research and to reinforce our commitment to our little lovely patients and their caregivers.

Pediatric dentistry’s continuing evolution, involving the organization of better oral health services, the development of child, and the discovery of new research paradigms, enthuses us to share the latest discoveries for the benefit of all children. However, there are still existing many challenges, but by drawing on the successes from the past and moving forward with new knowledge together, we can help shape a better future for pediatric dentistry and children.

I feel confident that the ICCPD 2021 will serve as a place of learning where we can all share the latest knowledge and learn the contemporary view, approaches, techniques and treatment options from highly eminent clinicians and/or academicians from different countries.

It is my honor to invite all colleagues, who have sincere enthusiasm to help children to let them have better oral health, quality of life, smiling and development, to attend International Congress of Contemporary Pediatric Dentistry.

Best regards,

Burak Buldur
