Dear Colleagues,

The upcoming meeting will be held between October 13 and 15, 2023 at Istanbul Grand Cevahir Congress Center, where more than 3000 attendees including dental students, dentists, dental assistants, dental technicians and representatives of dental companies registered in the 2022 GREATIST meeting. The organizing committee is making an outstanding effort to make a perfect scientific and technological event, where contemporary knowledge will be shared.

From its opening to the closing ceremony, we intend to prepare a schedule of events that will include all specialities of dentistry, and we also aim to update the scientific knowledge of our guests. We want to organize a very large exhibition hall, where you can easily access the most recent technologies.

We can say that digital dentistry has the potential to activate the workflow and increase accuracy in all areas, from diagnosis and imaging to treatment planning, from surgical, and periodontal approaches to restorative, prosthetic and orthodontic treatment, with software, hardware, materials and equipment that have developed considerably in the last 10 years. We are also preparing a program to present the information our physicians can apply in their clinics by focusing on each sub-title with competent speakers, presentations and courses.

We plan to make a variety of different educations in the annual meeting, where I would like to count them as:

19th GREATIST International Dental Congress
Istanbul Atlas University II. International Dental Symposium Opening Ceremony
Oncu Academy Symposium
Oral and Dental Health Appliance and Equipment Expo, where the most recent technologies will be presented
12th Asisdent Symposium, the first organization uniquely designed for axillary staff
11th Dental Labor Dental Technicians Symposium, organized by Professor Dr. Hanefi Kurt
Oral presentations
VESTA Academy special courses
Hands-on courses sponsored by attending companies

We intend to design a scientific environment, where the meeting will be enriched by the attendance of our distinguished dentist colleagues and companies as well as axillary staff, dental technicians and dental students. GREATIST is an event where we will learn and also teach contemporary technologies. It will also be a great meeting to educate ourselves, where we could also share our experience and scientific thoughts with others.

We will be honoured to see you at our 2023 annual meeting, where you will find the opportunity to meet with new colleagues as well as international guests who are visiting Istanbul. In addition to scientific lectures, oral presentations and hands-on courses, please do not forget to visit the exhibition hall sponsored by many companies presenting the most recent products of the global industry. The annual meeting website is continuously updated. I kindly suggest you follow the GREATIST website to find the most current changes in the schedule.

We hope to see all of our physicians at our congress, which will be held in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, such as Istanbul, to bring together the participants with advanced training.
