Born in Giannena, North-west part of Greece, Prof. Diamanti-Kipioti pursued her studies in Athens, where she embarked on a journey of academic excellence and research. Her dedication to Periodontology led her to establish scientific collaborations with the universities of Bern, Switzerland, and Gothenburg, Sweden, creating valuable partnerships that enriched the field of dental research.

An illustrious career saw Prof. Diamanti-Kipioti achieve numerous milestones. She was a founding member and served as the President of the Hellenic Society of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry from 1991 to 1995.
