What is the Japanese Dental Science Federation (JDSF)？
The Japanese Dental Science Federation (JDSF) was established as a General Incorporated Association on April 1, 2016, with the aims of improving dental care and contributing to the health and welfare of people in Japan and other countries by promoting dental science.
Japan is one of the super-aging societies in the world, and is trying to cope with the aging of its population. In response to social demands such as the diversification and sophistication of medical care needs, JDSF is required to further promote dental science and dental care and to provide adequate information. Therefore, JDSF is attempting to establish evidence-based dental science, innovate dental technology, and promote international collaboration.
JDSF will work closely with member dental academic societies, the Japanese Association for Dental Science (JADS), the Japan Dental Association (JDA), and other organizations, and the entire dental community will work together to contribute to the improvement of the health and well-being of the people.
