Foundation Nakao will be a small light, globally. But people who understand and appreciate our efforts will put their own light next to ours. So, gradually, the world will become brighter and lighter.

Establishing the Nakao foundation

There are three main reasons behind establishing the foundation. First is to help with disease prevention on global scale. Second is the aging of the population and the specific pressures that puts on dentists to care for their geriatric patients. And third is to assist higher education and scientific research. These are the three pillars of the vision of the Foundation Nakao.

Additionally, Foundation Nakao will promote research and education in the area of dental medicine. Mr Nakao hopes that the foundation will become a truly effective vehicle in supporting scientific exchange between universities, dental professionals and the dental industry.
