65 Years of Dental Medicine Study

The first generation of dental students began their studies in 1948 within the School of Medicine, University of Zagreb. 65 years have passed since then. The relationship between odontology, dental medicine and medicine, particularly surgical branches focusing on the region of face and jaws as well as the organization of teaching and clinical practice were the issues on which the founding of Odontology department within the School of Medicine in Zagreb was based.  Article 7 of the curriculum of the School of Medicine, University of Zagreb which was published in ˝Narodne novine˝ official gazette of the Republic of Croatia 1948 mentioned the teaching at the Odontology department. The number of students at the department, that is, the number of those who attended the undergraduate study program in the academic year 1948/49 was 47 and in 1954, the first eight dental students graduated from the School of Medicine, University of Zagreb.  
14 years later, that is, in 1962, this tradition was continued independently by the newly established School of Dental Medicine which still exists today.  
Therefore, this year, we celebrate the 65th anniversary of Dental Studies and their place within the higher education system of the Republic of Croatia.
Also, the Acta Stomatologica Croatica scientific journal started its publication 47 years ago within the School of Dental Medicine and since then, it has been coming out regularly, promoting science and dental profession both in Croatia and worldwide.  
This new issue of the 47th volume presents nine interesting scientific papers by authors from different European universities, four book reviews and abstracts from the 1st Congress of the Croatian Orthodontic Society of the Croatian Medical Association held in Zagreb in October, 2012.
I believe that everyone will find something interesting in this issue and get new insights into the dental profession. In conclusion, I would like to use this opportunity to invite everyone to support our journal by sending scientific studies to be published thus increasing the quality of the journal as well as the number of citations.
