Greetings from the Dean of the School of Dentistry

Takashi Sawase

Nagasaki University, School of Dentistry marked the 40th anniversary of foundation in 2019. The faculty members produced more than 1,947 of qualified graduates as dentist. Most of the graduates participate actively in the dental healthcare, education, research and welfare. Nagasaki University School of Dentistry stands by the principles to teach the basic education in a wide range of dental expertise, subsequently it can lead the cultivation of a dentist and a researcher who opens up new horizons for a comprehensive oral health care. As all of you know, since rapid aging of Japan's population has created a new situation, expected roles for dentists are changing from “cure” to “cure and support” and from “disease-oriented” to “patient-oriented”. We have been continuously developing new curriculum since 2006 and 20 integrated cross-functional programs were created that incorporated with the Problem Based Learning system, including the dental oriental medicine, and dysphagia rehabilitation, which all are unique in our university. Since 2009, dental practice training has been started for the fifth and sixth grade students in the Goto Island, where the extremely high population of senior citizens are living with limited dental service.  And in May 2010, the School of Dentistry Island Dental Health Medical Center was completed in Goto City. Interdisciplinary joint training workshops are holding among medical, pharmacy, and nursing students and the importance and necessity for cooperation with the other specialties has priority in our university.
During Edo-era, Nagasaki was the only gateway for the western countries and a lot of scholars were gathering here to learn professional expertise and still Nagasaki University, School of Dentistry is creating academic exchange agreements with other countries all around the world. We invite you to join us to study basic science to cutting edge of the dentistry. On behalf of the Nagasaki University School of Dentistry, our faculty and all staffs are ready to welcome you with open arms.
