I UFG International Meeting on Dental Research

Dear professors, researchers and students,


We are glad to announce that the UFG Postgraduate Program in Dentistry (PPGO/UFG) will host its very first online International Meeting (November 3rd- 4th, 2021). The goal of this meeting is to facilitate knowledge and experience exchange among researchers around the globe, through interaction and group discussion on current oral health-related investigation themes.

Furthermore, if you are willing to present your research project, results from original research, or share your experience as an international student or visiting fellow, we encourage you to submit an abstract for oral presentation consideration. Detailed information about each category and instructions regarding the abstract submission and presentation are available here.

Participation in all sessions (table below) and presentations are free of charge, but you must fill in the following application form prior to the meeting to receive the access link: Register here
