What SOBEP is

The Brazilian Society of Stomatology (SOBEP) is a scientific nonprofit organization that brings together not only dentists from all over the country who are dedicated to Oral Diagnosis, but also professionals in related fields such as Pathology, Radiology, Dermatology, Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, the Infectology and General Practice. 

The organization was founded in 1974, chiefly aiming to spread knowledge on the area, through congresses and seminars, for which we rely on close collaboration with our associates. Stomatology as a dental specialty was recognized by Resolution No. 181/92 by the Federal Councul of Dentistry (CFO).

During the meeting held during the VI International Dental Congress of the APCD in the city of São Paulo, on January 24th, 1974, Semiology professionals coming from all over Brazil, took the first steps to create the SOBEP.
