The Japanese Dental Society of Anesthesiology

The Japanese Dental Society of Anesthesiology was established in 1973, following the Council for Dental Anesthesiology (the predecessor of the Society) held in 1966. It has a history of more than 50 years and about 2,600 members now.

Dental anesthesiology is positioned as an independent field in dental science, which specializes in pain control, anxiety relief, and safety control in dental treatment and oral and maxillofacial surgery. In Japan, all dental schools have the Department of Dental Anesthesiology, which is in charge of education of dental students on dental anesthesiology, and conducts basic and clinical research into dental anesthesiology, and provides clinical specific treatments in the University Hospital.

In Japan, dental anesthesiologist is widely recognized as a dentist specializing in dental anesthesia care, pain clinic, and emergency care and providing general anesthesia, intravenous sedation, and inhalation sedation to dental patients.

The Japanese Dental Society of Anesthesiology is intended to plan the progress and development of research, medical examination, and education concerning dental anesthesiology, contribute to the improvement of the safety of dental treatment and the welfare of the local community, and nurture members and councilors engaged in dental anesthesiology. For that purpose, the society is engaged in the following projects:

  1. Interaction and collaboration with related organizations in Japan and abroad
  2. Education and development projects for researchers, as well as for those engaged in medical treatment, health service, and welfare service, concerning dental anesthesiology
