Medical Recommendations: Dentists

Author: Zdenek Slanina, Shaney Crawford Issue: May 2004, Topic: Medical

Sometimes it is hard to choose doctors and dentists when you are in a new place. It is even harder when you can't speak the language, or don't have friends yet who can recommend good clinics. Alien Times is happy to be a place where you can share your recommendations. If you have had a good experience at a clinic or hospital, please send a note to us and we will publish the information. Taking the time to express your opinion may save someone a whole lotta grief in the future!

Here are a couple of dentists that have been recommended.

Okada Dental Clinic

  • Orthodontist. Tsuchiura Gakuen Sen going towards Mitsukaido. Maybe 2km from the Mitsui building.
  • Matsushiro 1-12-1. 029-852-5500 (tel).

Meijin Shika Iin

  • Speaks English extremely well and is also very good at his job (which is kind of more important).
  • Onozaki 782-7. 029-856-3789 (tel). Open from 9am to 12:30 and 2:30pm to 6:30pm. Closed on Wednesdays, Sundays, and national holidays.

From Zdenek Slanina: The office is rather close to the Mitsui building. You first go from Mitsui to south-west, after the first main crossroad the road becomes No. 408. After a few hundred meters there is KFC shop and K's Denki shop where you turn left and continue south for about 500 meters. The road goes through rice fields and your target is close to a bigger building with a green roof. Mei-jin has a label outside with read apple, partly eaten. A longer option is to go further on No. 408 and eventually turn to east. I have been had very positive experiences with the dental service there - it is friendly and efficient.
