Orthodontics - Section of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics

Welcome to the SODO Website!!

Thank you for visiting our website today. The Section of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics (SODO) at Kyushu University (KU), Faculty of Dental Science was established in 1967 as the first orthodontic department at a national university in the Kyushu area. As the center for dental and craniofacial research and clinical orthodontics in Kyushu, we promote ourselves as world-class researchers and clinicians in the field of orthodontics. We believe that the happy smiles of patients will be supported by the evidence we provide at all levels of clinical and basic research.

For undergraduate students and residents, the SODO welcomes you to visit and discuss your future plans as a dentist. We also welcome you to join us as an active learner if you would like to be an orthodontist and/or researcher. For foreign dentists, we would like to invite you to become involved in our orthodontic specialty education course and/or PhD courses. We welcome people from various parts of Japan and all over the world. We dedicate our lives to contributing to the development of innovations in clinical orthodontics, and are supported by extensive and excellent scientific researchers.

Thank you again for visiting our website.
