I'm here to help in English!
I'm currently in charge of preventive dental treatment and dental examination assistance at Shin-Tokyo Dental Hygienist School. In the 33 years since our school opened its doors in 1983, we have placed 2,845 dental hygienists in the dental industry. We have also incorporated on-site practical training into our curriculum at 7 different locations; a dental clinic, university hospital, elementary school, kindergarten, facility for people with physical disabilities, nursing home, and healthcare center. We provide thorough support to help you become a professional dental hygienist!

Ms. Li china

In the high-level environment of Japan, I want to become the world's top dental hygienist.

I became interested in dental hygiene at home in China, and decided to study and become a dental hygienist in Japan due to the highly advanced dental medicine here. Shin-Tokyo offers a full range of support for international students, with not only the faculty staff but also my Japanese classmates being very kind and always cheerfully chatting with me. In the future, I want to remain in Japan and become the the world's top dental hygienist.
