Hiroshima University Faculty of Dentistry's goal is to become the worldwide research and education center in Dentistry. It seems to constitute the dental education by two missions: core and characteristic. Hiroshima University Faculty of Dentistry has clarified their characteristic mission and improved dental education system to reinforce the innovative part of the education. We started two programs to cultivate researchers/educators who will be a world-wide leader of dental research and education in addition to excellent dental practitioners, the frontier dental science course and the advanced dental clinician course in 2000. The students who completed new education system gave good score to the frontier dental science. The basic clinical knowledge level of students is the same between two courses before starting clinical training. Hiroshima University Faculty of Dentistry had School for Dental Hygienists and Dental Technicians School. These two schools are integrated and reorganized to the School of Oral Health Science in 2005. Hiroshima University firstly established the School of Oral Health Science with four-year programs for dental hygienists and dental technicians in Japan. The liberal arts education is reinforced in both four-year programs. The purpose of our four-year program in oral health science is to cultivate educators in dental hygienists school, researchers in Universities, and nursing teachers who work sickbay of elementary or junior high school. The purpose of our four-year program in oral health engineering is to cultivate educators in dental technicians school and researchers in Universities or dental materials/products companies in addition to excellent dental technicians.
