Shigeyuki Koyama (小山茂幸), Executive Director of the Japan Dental Association, which supports Pokémon Smile commented, "The Japan Dental Association has long believed that it is important for children to develop toothbrushing habits not only to prevent tooth decay but also to prevent periodontal disease in the future.
The Japan Dental Association has long been promoting the importance of children brushing their teeth while they are still children, not only to prevent tooth decay, but also to maintain a good dental and oral health habit throughout their lives, including the prevention of periodontal disease in the future. With the cooperation of Pokémon, which offers the Pokémon Smile application to help children develop the habit of brushing their teeth with a post-brushing reward, and Lotte, which offers xylitol products, we aim to further promote the habit of toothbrushing."
