About the book

The purpose of this book project is to bring together and present in detail all modern scientific and clinical methods used today in the dental implantology. Since all recent techniques draw their roots from basic research, there is a need to demonstrate all the methods used to improve and enhance existing clinical work techniques. Everyday advances in clinical research allow for scientifically based settings for the safe and predictable use of new materials and methods in everyday work. We can almost certainly expect the fast development of dental implantology in the future, following the example of other medical branches and the influence of the most modern scientific methods in the development of new techniques and materials in dental implantology.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Kristina Kardum Cvitan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
