Information: About Us


The Japan Institute for Advanced Dentistry (JIAD) conducts research, development and experiments into advanced dentistry, as well as education and training related to the dissemination of these results. This takes place under the philosophy of the "improvement of medical care and welfare of the people" as proclaimed by the late Dr. Norio Yamane, the 1st Chairman. The purpose of the JIAD is to disseminate and improve dental care. The JIAD received approval from the Ministry of Health and Welfare (presently the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare) that was established on November 20, 1987. On March 21, 2012, the JIAD receivedrecognition as a public-benefit organization from the Prime Minister and was registered as such on April 1, 2012. With this, the JIAD has now taken a new step forward. The JIAD is comprised of individuals, regular members of associations and other supporting members/honorary members who have joined the institute after endorsing the aims of this organization. As of April 1, 2012, there are a total of 708 members. Research and experiments form the core work of the JIAD. In Ube Laboratory, research and experiments are primarily conducted into implants. The JIAD is also actively engaged in the publication of a countless number of papers as well as the development of new implants in collaboration with other institutions and companies. In terms of education and training, training courses and civic extension lectures on general dentistry are held in various areas throughout the country, such as Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka and Ube. Furthermore, as a designated training institution of the Japanese Society of Oral Implantology, the JIAD holds academic society certified short courses that have received praise from a great many attendees.
