Greetings from the President of KAPDOH
Hello. Welcome everyone to the Korean Academy of Preventive Dentistry and Oral Health (KAPDOH)’s website.
Since its foundation in 1961, the KAPDOH has contributed to improving people’s oral health through a variety of oral health projects and academic activities.
One of the recent changes in the dental community is a shift in focus from treatment-based care to increasing interest in oral health care through prevention, and accordingly, many different tools and programs have been developed and applied nowadays. I believe that significant academic findings, which have been studied, researched and published by the KAPDOH, and various oral health activities, which our members have participated in and delivered successfully, are serving as a stepping stone for this new change.
The KAPDOH has played its various roles in good faith as a professional academy: to hold spring conferences and autumn general conferences, to publish the Journal of the KAPDOH, to operate a specialist qualification system and specialist training curriculums, and to improve insurance benefits in relation to prevention. Furthermore, we are actively involved in academic exchanges with other institutions around the world, including regular exchanges with the Japanese Society for Oral Health.
Your generous attention and participation would be greatly helpful to allow the KAPDOH to improve people’s oral health, nurture great oral health professionals, and play a central role in the development of dentistry.
