Learn enjoyably and seriously

At the Departments of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we diagnose and treat diseases not only in the oral cavity but also in the jaw and facial areas. We also conduct basic and clinical studies related to them. Our university has two departments for oral and maxillofacial surgery: Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 1 and 2. The former teaches basic principles of oral and maxillofacial surgery, injuries (traumas), inflammatory diseases, oral mucosal diseases, cystic diseases, salivary gland diseases, tooth extraction, and small oral surgeries. In practical trainings, local anesthesia, tooth extraction, and trauma (fracture) care are performed by using models. Lectures are given based on "Lecture Notes of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 1," in order to facilitate students' understanding and learning. One of our major goals is to grow dentists who can see patient's entire body and offer diagnosis/treatment in dentistry and/or oral surgery in consideration of patient's systemic condition. All of our members are friendly, gentle and enthusiastic in teaching. Why not learn at Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 1 as part of clinical training and subsequent programs?
