Empowering clinicians to embrace superior quality treatments - Japan

FOR is a global, non-profit organization advocating science, education and humanity in oral rehabilitation. In partnership with Nobel Biocare and governed by an independent board of trustees, we pursue a united mission to improve the quality of treatment available to oral healthcare providers. Together, we support projects in surgical, esthetic and reconstructive oral rehabilitation with a commitment to scientific credibility, evidence-based education and ethics.

Our ultimate goal is to empower more clinicians to embrace superior quality treatments, from routine to challenging, to enhance oral rehabilitation for patients across the globe.
