Division of Dental Hygienist

Dental hygienists have national qualifications. Under the instruction of dentists, we provide preventive dental care, aid and assistance for diagnosis and treatment, and dental health guidance. We take a role not only to support dental care, but also to ease patients’ tension during diagnosis and treatment. We act as a bridge linking patients and dentists.

Management System

We assigned 17 dental hygienists to dental divisions and the Cancer Center. They visit non-assigned clinical divisions and wards to provide oral care and surgical assistance.

Management Policy

The Division supports patients in receiving dental care safely, securely, and comfortably. While collaborating with medical divisions, we are actively involved in team medicine. Being involved in education for dental hygienist clinical trainees as well, we are active in many areas.
