Why our treatments and preventive care are not covered by Japanese National Health Insurance.

Tomonori Waki, D.D.S., Ph.D.

Hello I am Dr.Waki, Director of Azabu Tokyo Dental Clinic.

When I was staying in the United States, I was free from the Japanese national health insurance system and was able to offer all kinds of highly advanced treatments to my patients as specialist.

I was able to provide what the patient really needed for recovery and for preserving their health. We took our time explaining the treatments to our patients, performed our procedures with strict attention to detail, utilized highly advanced medical technology, and had access to the most appropriate medicines and materials and the most up-to-date facilities as a specialist.

After I came back to Japan, I directly felt the restriction of the Japanese national health insurance system. As a specialist it was very difficult to freely offer what patients needed. Unfortunately I was limited in offering the most advanced dental treatments, since the Japanese national health insurance only covers older types of treatment.

Needless to say, I respect and understand the necessity of the national health system in Japan, as it is a great system that helps and saves people.

However, through my experiences in the United States as a specialist, I realized the differences between what the Japanese health insurance system could offer and what the most advanced treatments in the world could provide. It made me think deeply about how to offer secure and reliable treatments to my family and friends. It was then that I made my big decision.

I decided to offer the most advanced treatments that I mentioned above, all with our hospitality, professional responsibility and reliability. I don’t compromise any treatment, and I always do my best for my patients.

We always take sufficient time to examine your oral condition, providing a thorough explanation of our diagnosis and potential treatment plans. After explaining everything completely and deciding on a plan together, we will begin the most appropriate treatment or preventive care for you.

These are the reasons our treatments are not covered by the Japanese health insurance system. However, we do accept health insurance from other countries. We offer the best way for you to recover and preserve your health.

Welcome to Azabu Tokyo Dental Clinic English Page!

Tomonori Waki, D.D.S., Ph.D.

Hello I am Dr.Waki.

I am a director of Azabu Tokyo Dental Clinic.

 

I first would like to thank every patient, doctor and staff member for all of their help in opening our homepage in English.

 

We are launching our website in English to let the larger international community know what we can do for you, and to show you our clinic’s idea and atmosphere. Please check it out!

 

I lived in the U.S. for approximately 4 years. During that time, it was very difficult to go the clinic as a patient, owing to the different culture and language. My family and I did, however, received a lot of help from our friends.

Now that I am in Japan, I believe it is my turn to help. I would like to assist people from other countries, and so I decided to open an international dental clinic in Azabu area.

 

If you have any worries about your smile, or if you would like to consult a dentist, please contact us anytime. We would like to help you keep your healthy smile!

Everything we do is for safe and secure dental implant surgery.

Tomonori Waki, D.D.S., Ph.D.

Hello, I am Dr.Waki director of Azabu Tokyo Dental Clinic.

People sometimes say “I am afraid of surgery” or “Is dental implant surgery really safe?”
To allay these fears, we at Azabu Tokyo Dental Clinic think a great deal about the following three points, all of which ensure safe and secure dental implant surgery:

First, our clinic provides reliable diagnosis and perfect preparation. To provide safe dental implant treatment, we fully prepare for surgery with a thorough clinical examination, consultation, and treatment.
Dr. Joseph Kan, who is my mentor and a professor of implant dentistry program at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in the United States, said, “Good surgeons always simulate the surgery at least 10 times before operating.” Dr. Kan is one of the few clinicians worldwide in both the surgical and restorative discipline of implant dentistry. Dr. Kan simulates each surgery 10 times, so I have trained myself to simulate each surgery 15 times before operating.

Second, our clinic is particular about strict attention to sanitation and clean equipment.
Our clinic utilizes the world’s highest level of anti-bacterial and anti-viral facilities. On top of sterilizing all of our equipment, we also take pains to sterilize even fresh gauze.
Our operating room has the most advanced air-filtration equipment installed, creating a sterile environment for safe operation.

Third, all members of our staff prepare and focus their concentration on one dental implant surgery at a time. Our clinic is privately reserved when a patient has dental implant surgery. All members concentrating on one patient’s surgery allows us to provide you with the highest level of care. We provide safe and secure dental implant surgery because we are the specialists of implant dentistry.
