Features of Regional Outreach Office (Dental)

Regional dental outreach at this hospital is designed to give patients referred from regional medical institutions easier access to specialized medical care.
We offer two ways of referral to the hospital, “Patient referral to diagnosis and treatment,” and “Patient referral to imaging diagnosis,” and ensure provision of the referral patients’ course of treatment at the hospital and give the resultant information from regional medical institutions.
Referred patients must be treated at the referred regional medical institutions as soon as the treatment for the content of referral letters is completed, in principle.
However, this is not the case in which regional medical institutions wish to transfer patients to the hospital.
