The Beginning of Research on Probiotics for Oral Health, Which Was Conducted by Dr. Jong-Suk Oh
When Dr. Oh was researching at the UCLA School of Dentistry,
his own oral health, which never seemed to be improving despite
his everyday efforts to improve it, was the biggest worry to him.
Traditional oral care didn't cut it. No toothbrush, floss, or mouthwash could put a dent in eliminating the problems completely. Dr. Oh, therefore, sought new solutions to the problems. He got the idea when he was conducting a study on the microbiome and finally found causes of the problems as well as solutions.
Our own research institute has its origins in the research on probiotics for oral health conducted by Dr. Oh in the Medical School at Chonnam National Univ. in 1997 in South Korea. The team led by Dr. Oh believed that probiotics would play a promising role as a next-generation solution in oral management. They, therefore, isolated probiotic strains which have beneficial effects on oral disease prevention and management, zdopted names for those strains, and finally found that those strains have great potential for becoming a solution in oral management.
