Preventive Dentistry

The aim of our research is to contribute not only to prevention of dental diseases, but also to improvement of quality of life (QOL) of people, through a better understanding of the relationship between the systemic health and dental/oral conditions. We are working on the following subjects concerning health promotion of people and the societies, including epidemiology (see “Research Projects” below).
