Mohammad H. Khoshnevisan
Dear Distinguished Colleagues and Friends; I am pleased to welcome each and every one of you to the 16th scientific meeting of the IADR-Iranian Division which will be held in December 2020 in Tehran, IR-Iran. It’s very important to note that over decades we have witnessed a dramatic change in the scope of dentistry. Based on accumulated data and available evidence, dentistry is now moving towards a comprehensive concept of oral health that is recognized to be an integral part of overall health.
With God Almighty's help, the 16th Annual Iranian division of the IADR Congress will be held despite current complicated conditions. Today, not only our country but also the whole world is confronting the deadly Coronavirus, which has so far affected many of our compatriots and medical and dental staff. This has disrupted many things, including research, but the Iranian division of IADR considered it their responsibility to hold this research event every year.
