What is ICU Oral Care Round Team?

Although the ICU Oral Care Round Team is an unofficial organization of the hospital, it consists of dentists of the Division of Hospital Dentistry and dental hygienists of the Division of Dental Hygienists. This team makes oral care rounds for patients in ICUs once per week.

We approach the patients from a dental standpoint. We make efforts to improve the general conditions and the prognoses of patients through oral care provided through interprofessional collaboration with doctors and nurses in the ICU.
