Okayama University Hospital Dental Clinic of National University Corporation Okayama University (Headquarters: Kita Ward, Okayama City; President: Hiroshi Makino) opened in April 1982 as an affiliated dental hospital, and 40 years have passed this year. Due to the deterioration of the building of the Faculty of Dentistry, where dental care is provided, it became necessary to refurbish it. The construction of the treatment area has been completed. From Tuesday, October 11, 2022, we will resume outpatient care in the newly renovated dental treatment areas on the 1st and 2nd floors of the Dental Building.
This renovation is not limited to seismic retrofitting and replacement of old plumbing equipment, etc., but also includes the placement of dental chairs with an emphasis on infection control, the development of private rooms that can be converted into negative pressure rooms that can be used for patients with infectious diseases, and the development of clinical research. In addition to deploying a dental clinic for this purpose, “DX dental treatment” will be possible using digital technology that can create dental molds using optical scanners.
In addition, in the new outpatient department, the reception counters, examination rooms, and examination rooms of each clinical department will be numbered in large letters, and color-coded and pictograms will be used so that the locations of each reception counter, toilets, elevators, etc. can be seen at a glance. Installation of a guide sign in the aisle
We also improved the design of the signs so that the elderly, children, and foreigners who have difficulty understanding Japanese can be guided by numbers.
