Introduction of the Director

Director/Doctor of DentistryYuki Arakawa

Dr. Arakawa graduated from Kanagawa Dental University, here in Japan, and also attended New York University, College of dentistry in the United States for his postgraduate program. After graduating both programs, he worked for a clinic called Smile & Wellness Aruga Dental Clinic. It was here that he learned many techniques and gained the experience that he needed in order to become the dentist that he is today. Later on in his career, he would open a brand new clinic and work along side his family in Yokosuka, Japan, where he was born and raised.

He comes from a family of dentists who have owned and run their own dental clinic. It was his grandfather who started the clinic 30 years ago, which was then passed down to his mother Miyuki Arakawa, who was the director of Arakawa Family Dental for 25 years and by tradition, the clinic was then passed down to Dr. Arakawa.

Dr. Arakawa has dedicated his time and energy to becoming a comprehensive dental practice, that provides preventative care and treatment, appropriate for all ages. His ultimate goal is to provide better dental care, and is shown through his dedication, compassion, and hard-work.

Family is very important to Dr. Arakawa, and that is why he, and his staff treat all of their clients like family. Arakawa Family Dental serves our clients with the best treatment systems from the use of high technology dental equipment, to teaching his clients how to properly improve their overall oral health. At Arakawa Family Dental, we believe, that everyone deserves to live a lifetime with improved oral health and peace of mind.
