Like most people I’m not keen on visits to the dentist and tend to put them off for as long as possible. However, if I want to keep this set of gnashers in good nick then it’s important to get them checked out occasionally. When I do so, I want a dentist who can explain things to me in English and I want someone I trust. I’ve had bad experiences with unscrupulous dentists, in both my home country and here, who are a little too keen on putting multiple fillings in teeth before any cavities appear! So having found a dentist I can rely on – I’m sticking with him. My dentist of choice is Takahiro Makimura at the Makimura Dental Clinic. He’s a friendly chap and even if he doesn’t treat you personally he is always on hand to explain what is going on. And he gives good ongoing dental care advice too. I have found there to be very little waiting time when I’ve gone there, so none of that soul-draining time in a waiting room listening to the shrill whining of drills. The service is quick and efficient and no one is interested in wasting your time or your money. Even though I live quite far from the clinic now, I still go back there because I know that at Makimura Dental Clinic I can have peace of mind.
