Class Objectives
/Class Outline
In order to practice patient-centered dentistry and oral care, students will acquire essential comprehensive knowledge, problem-solving skills, and teamwork skills, and will acquire medical skills to diagnose, plan treatment, and perform basic procedures while taking a holistic view of the patient. Furthermore, the goal is to establish a clinical foundation to play a leading role in the future development of dentistry and dental medicine.

Clinical practice is divided into clinical observation practice and clinical practice in the narrow sense. Clinical observation practice is a period of preparation for clinical practice, during which students learn through interactive practice and clinical observation the attitudes and techniques required to apply the knowledge and skills they have learned so far to patients. In addition, students learn how to cooperate with nurses, dental hygienists, and other medical staff. In the clinical practice, students learn the knowledge, ideas, and medical techniques necessary to engage in dental care as a dentist through medical treatment.
