Department of International Collaboration Development for Dentistry

Specially Appointed Associate Professor
Ketut Suardita DDS, PhD

Specially Appointed Associate Professor Ketut Suardita DDS, PhD

First of all, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Ketut Suardita. I was born on the 26th of November 1968 in Denpasar, Bali, a beautiful island of Indonesia. I live my childhood and youth in Denpasar. In 1987 I moved to Surabaya to study dentistry in the Faculty of Dentistry, Airlangga University. I was graduated as a dentist in 1992. Since 1993 I have been working as a lecturer in the Department of Conservative Dentistry, Faculty of Dentistry, Airlangga University.

Japan, especially Hiroshima, is not a strange city to me. The first time I came to Hiroshima was in 1997 to study in the Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Dentistry, Hiroshima University. With the guidance and supervision of Professor Yukio Kato and other lecturers, I was able to accomplish my study in 2002 and got Ph.D degree. Afterwards, I got two years scholarship to continue my post doctoral program to learn more about stem cell under the supervision of Professor Yukio Kato. In 2010 I came again to Japan for 4 months to join the academic recharging program.

I am honored to be given a chance to be a part of the Department of International Collaboration Development for Dentistry (ICDD). ICCD has an honorable purpose which later can contribute to world peace. ICDD have a strong determination to support the development of dental education in Asia. It is important to promote and support international collaborative education and research activity. With the existence of ICDD it is hoped that all nations in Asia can move forward and develop together in dental medicine.

ReaD & Researchmap

I would like to introduce myself. My name is Hiroko Oka. 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 has become 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 the same laboratory with 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 programs 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.
