About the book

Innovative tissue engineering and regenerative medicine solutions that incorporate nanobiotechnology, advanced biomaterials, computer assistance, three-dimensional printing, and robotic systems offer extensive potential for augmenting and improving the functional and esthetic cranio-maxillo-facial and oro-dental health profile of patients. This book is dedicated to the state of the art in oro-dental and cranio-maxillo-facial tissue engineering (restoration, replacement, reconstruction, regeneration and repair) related topics and emphasizes the bionanotechnology, functional biomaterial, and three-dimensional-related topics for innovative alternative solution design, characterization, evaluation and optimization.

Through a collection of chapters developed by internationally renowned authors, this book aims to exhibit the latest state of the art in R&D&ideas, concepts, findings, achievements, and future projections and promote awareness of this rapidly evolving and enabling multidisciplinary technology, thereby encouraging bridging the gap between medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, material sciences and engineering (including sub-specialities, extending to the head and neck, orthopaedics, oncology, amongst others) for research collaboration across the fields to address the critical and urgent bio-dental/bio-medical concerns.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marijana Francetic

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.
