The Academy of Clinical Dentistry (NPO)

Dr. Akihiro Kuroiwa, President



I am Akihiro Kuroiwa, the 15th president of the Academy of Clinical Dentistry. To live up to such an undeserved honor, I will put my utmost effort in further developing ACD. To the members of ACD, please let me humbly ask for further participation and support.

In the 35th Anniversary Conference, gNeo-Gnathologyh was summarized and further developed into gTrue Gnathologyh. It still fresh in my mind that last year many a member gathered under the slogan gLetfs energize dentistry in Japan by promoting membersf understanding and practice of Gnathologyh. Similarly, a number of members participated in gself-reliance support dentistryh, having me realize that the time has come to solve various problems on gwhole body and oral functionh by collaborating with professionals from different fields.
Now, the 38th Academic Conference will adopt a theme I proposed, namely, gSharpening the clinical skills in the era of 100-year-old life (not e100-year lifef, but e100-year-old lifef for we can not be surprised at people aged 100 or 110, and we should be able to support them)h. In order to achieve this, the conference will feature lectures by instructors from Japan and overseas themed on or bridging over various fields (gnathology, prosthetics, endodontics, periodontology, orthodontics, oral surgery, pediatric dentistry, internal medicine, elderly care, and anthropology), shining the path to glong-term sound clinical resultsh for patients of all ages. gThe relationship between oral and the systemic healthh will be discussed in detail. We pray for a fruitful conference that will lead to practice.
Last year, Japan experienced a population decline of 480,000, and shrinking and aging of the population will certainly progress. Given the changes in the population structure unique among the developed countries, we as an academy need to capture the needs of the nation. gDon't put unnecessary financial burdens on patientsh equates to sound clinical practice and longevity of quality medical care. gIt was good to be treated at that timeh and the longevity of treated part should deliver health and happiness to the patient. We, who specialize in gocclusionh, must lead to support the health of the nation.
Another new trend is coming to ACD, namely, certification under the dental specialist system that are exempt from the guidelines of the medical advertisement. In this regard, we will proceed with preparations for registration as a certified specialist association. We are looking to nurture certified fellow (system) in line with ACDfs vision based on detailed discussions among instructors and specialists under current system.

Thank you for your understanding, cooperation and support.
