Announcement on FY2014 oral health check-up, dental screening for adult residents of Minato-ku

What does an oral health check-up involve?

It will provide dental health education and guidance tailored to each patient by checking overall oral health, not limited to cavities and periodontal disease.
Any and all questions about oral health will be answered. The dental association is endeavoring to solve any oral issues you might have and give you control of what goes on in your mouth.

Oral health check-up is conducted twice-yearly.
The first-round check-up can be taken in June, July and August, and the second-round is offered in November, December and January (follow-up screening).
The mouth is the wellspring of health, and its health is the first step to ensure a long life of health! Whether you are a first-timer or took the oral health check-up last year, why don’t you have an examination continuously to ensure your mouth is being kept in running order?
