This paper describes an analysis of the opinion survey that is carried out at the internal dosimetry using whole body counters conducted in Japan Atomic Energy Agency. JAEA staffs explained the examination results of WBC to the residents in private booths and provide necessary advice for them. We carried out two opinion surveys at the internal dosimetry. The first survey was carried out before the screening in order to realize the residents' views of the accidents; the second survey was carried out after the personal dialogue in order to receive the evaluation from examinee for our correspondence. The first survey showed that residents' anxiety about radioactive exposure, hereditary influence on next generation, and so on. On the other hand, more than 90% residents answered in the second survey that "uneasiness reduced" as a result of the direct dialogue. Our private dialogue has also considerably effects.
