GC, as a dental manufacturer, considers excellence in its core business to be the most important mission. We will grow into a more trusted company by interacting with society through our core business.


Students at three Alsip elementary schools learned how to protect their smiles from tooth decay thanks to a new, interactive classroom education program launched by GC America. Staff from GC America, Alsip's largest employer, kicked off the program by visiting the schools on January 24-25 to quiz students on their oral health knowledge and provide demonstrations of proper dental care. Each of the more than 200 third grade students who participated also received an oral care kit with a new toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss.

Improving oral health is an important focus for child health advocates in Illinois. Though largely preventable, pediatric dental disease is the most common chronic, untreated disease among children in the U.S. In Illinois, more than 22% of children have untreated tooth decay, according to the 2016 Statewide Oral Health Assessment published by the Illinois Children's Healthcare Foundation, Delta Dental of Illinois Foundation and Michael Reese Health Trust.

The program is already gaining positive attention with many educators requesting classroom visits. Responding to high demand, GC America plans to expand the program to first and second grade students within the Alsip School District as well as additional school districts during the 2018-2019 school year.

The program receives valuable support from America's ToothFairy: National Children's Oral Health Foundation, which provided educational materials and oral care products for the program.

"Children with good oral health experience better overall health, perform better in school and miss fewer school days," said Dr. Mark Heiss, Director of Regulatory and Academic Affairs for GC America. "GC America is proud to support oral health educational programming for students in our Alsip schools, helping ensure they have the tools they need for optimal oral health, well-being and success."

"There are no words to thank you for this!!!! The support received has been overwhelming. Thanks for all that GC has done for the people of Puerto Rico, our dental school and its academic community. We will be using the materials for the treatment and comfort of those in shelters and hard hit areas. Once again thank you; you've been a blessing this Holiday season."

- Ana N. Lopez, DMD, MPH, FACD (Dean University of Puerto Rico)



"We have sealed over 4,700 teeth with GC Fuji TRIAGE® and prevented cavities in almost 500 kids. That may not sound significant, but the notion of preventing caries with glass ionomer sealants is really taking off in Nicaragua, and soon we will have enough data to demonstrate the true preventive effect.

Please convey to the rest of my GC Family how much I appreciate the continuous support and I wouldn't want to put any other product in a child's mouth - because it's clear that GC Fuji TRIAGE has the ability to dramatically decrease the incidence of tooth decay (just like the research indicates). With your continued support, we will continue to photograph every tooth each year, reseal if needed, and seal any tooth that has erupted since the last year. My goal is to publish a decade of data demonstrating a decrease in dental caries disease armed with a group of motivated dental students and glass ionomer."

- Dr. Brian Novy

Awarded the Health, Labour and Welfare Ministry's Award for Distinguished Services in Pharmaceutical Affairs
President Makoto Nakao was awarded the Health, Labour and Welfare Ministry's Award for Distinguished Services in Pharmaceutical Affairs in 2004. The award was given to President Nakao for his diligent efforts in the field of pharmaceutical affairs and hygiene, for his contribution to public health. A total of 91 individuals were awarded in 2004, but President Nakao was the only one from the dental industry.

Awarded the Insignia of Commander of the Crown of Belgium
In 1995, President Makoto Nakao was awarded the Insignia of Commander of the Crown of Belgium from the Kingdom of Belgium. The relationship between GC and Belgium dates back to 1972, when we opened our European branch in Kortrijk. Subsequently, we built a new office and warehouse in Leuven, near the capital Brussels, in 1984. We also constructed our first European plant in Belgium in 1989 and the second European plant in 1994. Our investment in Belgium over the years, and its positive benefits in stimulating the local economy and creating jobs, has been recognized by the country.


Our Fuji Oyama Factory offers tours for the dental students and our customers in order to show them first-hand how GC products are made, in hope that it helps deepen their understanding of our advanced technologies and commitment to product quality, and in the process it helps create enthusiastic supporters of the GC name. The plant also communicates with residents in the neighboring community to explain the efforts we are making to reduce the negative impact on the environment and provide opportunities for them to become more interested in their dental and oral health.

Tour guides are selected from among associates, and appointed guides study our products in detail to gain in-depth knowledge so that they can share it with visitors. Additionally, they create tour brochures themselves and strive every day to give better tours.

Plant Tour Participants (2007) Number of Tours Approximate Number of Visitors
Students from dental universities, dental technician/hygenist training courses  20  650
Residents living near the plant  5  100
Guests from overseas  7  200
Total  32  950

Achievement of Zero Waste Plant and Cleanup Around Plant
The Fuji Oyama Factory became a "zero waste" plant in September 2007. All waste materials generated from the plant are classified and recycled/reused.

In addition to reducing waste within the facility, the plant is making the neighboring community cleaner by organizing a bi-annual community cleanup event. This year a total of 360 people participated in the cleanup event.


GC is a member of a national project called "Team Minus 6%", launched to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 6% and help Japan keep its promise in the Kyoto Protocol, which came into effect in February 2005.


"Toshio Nakao Chair" at University of Leuven in Belgium
In 1999, the "Toshio Nakao Chair" was established at University of Leuven in Belgium. The course, whose title features the name of our former president, is taught by Dr. B. Van Meerbeek, a world-renowned researcher of dental bonding technique, and other talented staff. The seminar is recognized as one of the premier research vehicles in the field of dental preservation and dental material science.

IADR Toshio Nakao Fellowship
The IADR Toshio Nakao Fellowship was established in 1994. The program provides a scholarship of US $15,000 to dental material researchers belonging to the IADR (International Association for Dental Research). As a member of the international business community, GC will contribute to the fostering of people and research programs that help create a better tomorrow.


Under a joint research project with the WHO (World Health Organization) on the development of technologies and materials suitable for the dental-treatment environment in developing countries, GC developed a high-strength glass ionomer cement called "GC Fuji IX." GC Fuji IX can be used with a dental procedure known as ART (Atraumatic Restorative Treatment), which does not require special technology or machinery. GC Fuji IX was introduced by the WHO on World Health Day in 1994 as an innovative restorative method that can be implemented in developing countries where complete facilities are not available and the standards of hygiene are low.

The technology has been applied in numerous countries since then. GC Fuji IX is also widely used in industrialized nations as a restorative method in keeping with today's emphasis on retaining the tooth structure. The theme of the 1994 World Health Day was "Oral Health of A Healthy Life." The year 1994 was designated as the "Year of Oral Health", and GC served as an official supporter as a global dental company contributing to the cause of WHO activity. The circle of efforts to enhance oral health is expanding throughout the world.
