School of Dental Hygiene
The training of dental hygienists in Japan was launched in July 1948, when the Law on Dental Hygienists was passed, requiring such training programs to be put into effect. The very next year, TDC founded Japan's first dental hygienist school, opening the doors of TDC School of Dental Hygiene. In 1989, it was relocated to Chiba Campus and boasts an enviable combination of state-of-the-art teaching facilities and a proud 50-year history of solid academic results. To respond more closely to the demands of the times, the school instituted a three-year curriculum for the training of dental hygienists, starting in 2004.
