Modern dentistry is changing from the practice of treating one mouth at a time to a health science with emphasis on prevention and care for each patient. The Graduate School has created a research course as well as a certified/specialized physician course to respond to the needs of modern dental science. We are committed to training dental practitioners who will treat patients from a comprehensive perspective and researchers who will further develop dental medicine.
To promote interdisciplinary research and globalization, researchers are encouraged to actively collaborate with other universities, both domestic and overseas. We are pleased to host special lectures on theme research topics delivered by lecturers invited from abroad at least four times a year. In addition, the university supports graduate students with regard to paper presentation and publication. Most students participate in international conferences.
One important characteristic of the school is the careful building of a 6-year educational program. We have implemented an innovative program that brings the students closer to the patients and prepares them to be better clinicians. Courses in the Department of Integrated Human Sciences which lay the groundwork for future academic and individual development are often closely related to the themes of Health Care. To maintain the idea that Total Care Treatment is an indispensable practice for oral and dental care, our curriculum is interwoven with a variety of specialized courses that are not limited to the field of oral issues.
We hope to educate our students to be the dentist who can contribute to an overall preventive oral health care program so as to improve the patient's quality of life.
Another important characteristic is that we have taken the initiative in making significant contributions to our local communities by the treatment and consultation of the disabled. In 1995, we began our special program with the town of Tobetsu in which some of our dentists visit the homes of those patients who are in need of our services. We are proud of having been pioneers in the practice of community health care.
