Outline of school of Dentistry

The school of dentistry was established in 1951 as the first institution among the national universities devoted to both education and research in dentistry. The basic educational program leading to the Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) Degree consists of approximately 1.5 years of pre-professional study and 4.5 years of study in the School of Dentistry.
The Osaka University School of Dentistry is not merely a place where future dentists are educated. It also stands at the “Frontier of Oral Science” where comprehensive study and education that transcend the boundary between basic dental science and clinical dental science are carried out.
