Greeting from Dr. Yuichiro Shimizu, clinic director

Dr. Yuichiro Shimizu Dentist

The role of the dentist, in our clinic, is to educate each patient on options, its risks and benefits, and help you select the appropriate treatment for you and your family.

Furthermore, with the extensive training that our dentists has acquired, including ongoing continuing education, our dentists offer a life time of up-to-date knowledge on the advancement of oral health care. It is through years of experience and a firm foundation that make up the technical skills and expertise of an excellent dentist.

Comprehensive Dental Care: reversal of existing disease conditions and preventative maintenance.

Dentist Dr. Yuichiro Shimizu Working

The model of my dental clinic is adopted from my observations of dental practices at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The model is to prevent disease, preserve healthy dentition and maintain dental health for a lifetime. This is in contrast to traditional Japanese dental care of the past, and often times of the present, which is to seek dental treatment only in the presence of pain.

My dental clinic stands out among the many choices you have in Tokyo by providing quality preventative treatment modalities in order to prevent future dental problems. My mission is to provide comprehensive dental services through high quality standard of care and materials, allowing for long term dental health.

Advanced modern dentistry focuses on high quality treatments that increases your immediate and long term dental health. The need for retreatment is significantly reduced when your dental work is thoughtfully and skillfully executed by our knowledgeable dentists. By subscribing to the high standards of international dental organizations we are your modernized and advanced dental professionals.

Dr. Shimizu was impressed by their quality of dental treatment while he was in the US. He presented his passion and enthusiasm to the executive members in Portland, Oregon meeting in 2010.

Japan members maintain and enhance their skill and knowledge through the clinical operation twice a year by mentoring the recognized members of the Academy in the US or Canada. He is making the dentistry in Japan better by not only working as the president of Japan study club, but also regularly presenting the Tucker’s technique at Japanese local dental study club.
