Specially Appointed Associate Professor
Udijanto Tedjosasongko, DDS, PhD

Udijanto Tedjosasongko

Allow me to introduce myself. I am Udijanto Tedjosasongko. Please call me Udi. I am a moslem. I was born on June 1st 1968 in Surabaya Indonesia. My father was a Professor of Oral Surgery (1938-2005) and my mother is an orthodontist. They were teaching staff member of Faculty of Dentistry Airlangga University Surabaya Indonesia. My sister is an ophthalmologist, and her husband is an orthopedics doctor.

I finished my undergraduate school at Faculty of Dentistry Airlangga University in September 1992 and I got my PhD degree from Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences Hiroshima University Hiroshima Japan in 2000 under guidance of Prof Nagasaka Nobuo and Prof Kozai Katsuyuki. After I finished my study at Hiroshima University, I continued study at Airlangga University and got the degree as a Pediatric Dentist in 2003.

Just several months after I graduated from Airlangga University, in 1993 I start to work as teaching staff at Department of Pediatric Dentistry Faculty of Dentistry Airlangga University until present. Since April 2011, Hiroshima University giving me a great opportunity to be a member of a big family of Faculty of Dentistry Hiroshima University as Specially Appointed Associate Professor at the Department of International Collaboration Development for Dentistry (ICDD). For me Hiroshima University and Airlangga University are my one big family. I have learned a lot from Airlangga University and Hiroshima University, so it is my turn now to give my best to both institutions.

Nobody is perfect. I try to learn everything from everyone at anytime. I believe that everyone has his/her own duty. I wish I can do my best to finish all my duties that God gives me in this world.

ReaD & Researchmap

I was born in Nagoya and lived there for 18 years before I came to Hiroshima as an undergraduate. I got an interest in forensic odontology from some of essays and TV programs when I was in Nagoya. So, I decided to study at dental school.

However, there was no class or department of "forensic odontology" in my school, and I got into playing "Kyudo (Japanese sports like archery) " for 6 years.

After I got a license of dentists, I entered graduate school and devoted to study of mechanism of PGE2 on cementoblasts'function. Cementoblasts are cells in the surroundings of a tooth root. The research at this time led to the question "What protects the root resorption?" and the question became my latest research theme (This theme is not related in main topics of ICDD……). I also had opportunities to take a clinical training at HUH and local clinic. Moreover, a lot of international students joined to the same laboratory to me. Those situations caused me "Culture-shock" and might develop my global-mind as "a small international society." So I could spend passive 4 years. Although the original purpose did not completed, I had some chances to joined identification work with Hiroshima dentists and local seminar of identification.

After my PhD course, I had good opportunities to work as a staff of graduate education program and also transferred to ICDD. I don't work as so-called"the dentist" recently. However, I spend stimulated time to try to carry out new things every day.

I have the purpose to do something linking to forensic odontology. The Tohoku earthquake led me to think again about importance to foster human resources and collaboration. I would like to take new approaches to"forensic odontology" here and challenge them, too. It's my additional purpose to join ICDD.
