NIOM is working to
promote patient safety!

Research, materials evaluation and participation in international and European standardization support our vision: ensuring that dental biomaterials are safe and effective in the Nordic countries. Our accredited testing laboratory delivers high-quality, accurate and independent results to the sponsor.

The Nordic Institute of Dental Materials (NIOM) is responsible for promoting a continuing Nordic collaboration in the field of dental biomaterials. NIOM maintains a distinct Nordic profile through broad contacts with the Nordic dental educational institutions and research centres. The Institute undertakes research, materials testing, standardisation and research-based consulting directed towards health authorities and dental health services in the Nordic countries. Our research and consulting are required to be scientifically founded and applicable to clinical dentistry.

NIOM has a well-qualified staff covering all aspects of dental biomaterials: clinical dentistry, biology, toxicology, analytic and polymer chemistry, metallurgy and mechanical testing. Currently we are 27 permanent staff working together with several research fellows and visiting scientists.
