The theme of this spectacular event is: “Nations Collaboration via Nations Gate.” The gate refers to Gate of All Nations in Persepolis(Persian ancient city which is registered as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites) and is the metaphor of an ambience in which all nations are welcomed due to promote active collaboration between Iranian dental professionals and their counterparts around the globe. The Gate of All Nations through which the international guests were received in ancient Iran has been chosen as the symbol of this congress. The Gate of all Nations represents Iranian rich culture and symbolizes integration and collaboration between Iranian dental community and their counterparts around the globe.

The Gate of all Nations will be opened in EXCIDA 56 making Tehran a gathering place of international renowned dental scientists.
