When sorting out photos in PC, I found some in Ann Arbor. It's 10 years ago when I went there to study dental implant skills using cadaver at University of Michigan School of Dentistry. In Japan, education using cadaver is prohibited. Whenever Japanese dentists want to learn new techniques, models and pig jaws are only materials. Dr. Wong who is the first Asian professor in dentistry of US university opened the door to us Japanese. The seminar was designed to satisfy my thirst for knowledge and experience. When the tour to Ann Arbor was announced, I applied at the drop of hat. I was impressed to the fact that University of Michigan was like a small town, having various shops and crossroads. Japan does not have such a huge university. The dental course? It was very useful, of course! I wish I went back someday.
