Our philosophy and mission statement is our call to action

“To provide outstanding care to patients who expect the very best and to educate them to become partners in their own dental health.”

We work for you, the patient.

We are here to ensure you have the information you need to make informed decisions about your dental health, and to make your dental treatment as comfortable as possible.

Information for You

Our advice will always be based on your best interests. Our training and technology exist to fulfill the decisions you make regarding what is best for you and your family. To help in your decision-making, we will openly and candidly discuss with you what you can expect from our recommended treatment plan – what is involved, anticipated results, cost and alternatives. We encourage you to ask questions so you can decide confidently how to proceed.

Less Dental Anxiety

We recognize that many patients have anxiety about visiting the dentist. We believe that anxiety is real, that it is important, and that it is our job to do what we can to alleviate it. Easing your anxiety is our pleasure, and we take pride in it.


Infection Control

We realize you are concerned about infection control in your dental treatment. We share your concern and want to assure you that your safety has been and always will be a top priority in our office. In fact we have been in the lead in instituting and elevating the standards of infection control for our patients and employees.

        3 / 52

        4 / 52

Everything we use for your care, including all drills, are either steam sterilized or properly disposed of. Our standards meet or exceed every guideline of the Japan Dental Association and Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare. We constantly monitor our sterilization procedures to insure the safety of all our patients, who include, of course, our staff and our families.

You Should Be Aware That

After every patient treatment, we thoroughly prepare the cubicle for the next patient by disinfecting all areas of patient contact. We sterilize all instruments and dental drills with heat and steam, a method which assures absolute sterility. We all participate in on-going training and updating in the most advanced methods of equipment sterilization. As a member of Japan Dental Association, we attend an annual infection control seminar to insure we keep abreast of the latest technology.

Our mission has always been to provide you with the very best of care, comfort and cleanliness, and we will continue to do so.
