Dental Hygiene Section

The dental hygienists who belong to the Department of Clinical Practice and Support provide dental preventive treatment, dental hygiene guidance, and dental practice assistance in the dental areas of each outpatient department, while dental assistants support improvement of the environment and daily operation. In the medical areas, we take a team approach in cooperation with staff of other specialized professions to provide oral care for the prevention of infection after surgical procedures and the prevention of oral complications in inpatients. Furthermore, we train dental hygienists who play a role in patient-centered, comprehensive dental practice as a member of a medical team.
