The Brief Early History of the PFA Japanese Section

By Robert Masao Shiosaki,
Supervised by Dr. Clifford F. Loader, Mrs. Rae D. Loader


We are all indebted to Robert Masao Shiosaki for his willingness to meticulously construct the complete history of the Japan Section of the Pierre Fauchard Academy. We are indeed fortunate that he has served as an adviser all the years of his life with the Section working first with the organizing committee in 1970, and working closely with each Section Chairman and each of the three Secretary Generals.

Every professional man has an obligation to contribute to the advancement of the profession due to the heritage. This book faithfully records the progress, growth and achievements. Future accomplishments will be based on the sound foundation established here. This book documents accomplishments to date.

We men are what we are because of the contributions of all other men...... both those now living ... and those that belong to history. Our wisdom is the wisdom of the ages ... our culture is the culture of the centuries ... of the intelligent use of mind and matter by many men of many generations and many lands.

Dentistry is grateful and all the Pierre Fauchard Academy members worldwide are particularly grateful for this first official history of this important component of the Academy.
