Efforts for state-of-the-art dental care
We will conduct minimally invasive examinations and endoscopic procedures.
In the case of malignant tumor of the head and neck area, we will refer to a medical institution where intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) or heavy ion radiotherapy is performed considering functions and esthetics.
