                         (DLC) films make them suitable for implantable medical and 
                         odontological interests. Despite their good interactions with 
                         biological environment, incorporated nanoparticles can 
                         significantly enhance DLC properties. This manuscript studies the 
                         potential of titanium dioxide (TiO2) incorporated-DLC films in 
                         dental applications. In this scene, both osteoblasts attachment 
                         and spreading on the coatings and their corrosion characteristics 
                         in artificial saliva were investigated. The films were grown on 
                         304 stainless steel substrates using plasma enhanced chemical 
                         vapor deposition. Raman scattering spectroscopy characterized the 
                         film structure. As the concentration of TiO2 increased, the films 
                         increased the osteoblast viability (MTT assay), becoming more 
                         thermodynamically favorable to cell spreading (W-Ad values became 
                         more negative). The increasing number of osteoblast nuclei 
                         indicates a higher adhesion between the cells and the films. The 
                         potentiodynamic polarization test in artificial saliva shows an 
                         increase in corrosion protection when TiO2 are present. These 
                         results show the potential use of TiO2-DLC films in implantable
