Dr. Yukiko Minami

  1. Dr. Yukiko Minami

    Greetings to everyone. My name is Yukiko Minami and in May 2023, I had the pleasure of opening my clinic, “MY Dental Office Kojimachi” in Chiyoda-ku Kojimachi, a neighborhood known for its historical background.

    As a young child, I grew up watching my mother, who is also a dentist, work diligently to put a smile on all her patients. At a time when there were few female dentists, my mother valued “communicating” with her patients and provided dental care believing that “Every patient is different when it comes to their lifestyle and background, and their priorities for the type of treatment they choose will also be different. Therefore, communication becomes a key factor in providing the best care possible for each patient.”

  2. My mother has continued to run her clinic since it opened in 1984, and I am determined to carry on the principles and knowledge she has instilled in me. Through “communication,” I will strive to provide care that will bring out a “healthy and beautiful smile” from all my patients.

    Having studied in the United States from 2005 to 2010, the vast experiences that I gained there have become the foundation of my dental care. Therefore, one of my goals is to provide a stress-free environment for foreigners who are living in Japan so they can receive dental care in English. In 2021, I was selected as one of the Official Chief Dentists for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games and was fortunate to have had the opportunity to care for athletes from around the world.

    In addition to providing general dental care in a comfortable environment in both Japanese and English, we also provide specialized care in dental implant and orthodontics with the highest level of diagnostic and medical skills during each treatment. Our clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art medical devices such as a 3D simulation imaging system (CT). Each of the dental chairs will have dedicated oral cameras, and a built-in wide screen LCD monitor to display oral conditions to help the patient visualize their treatment procedures as it is being explained.

    We will ensure proper hygiene and provide a safe environment for every patient with the Class B autoclave, a world-renowned sterilizer for its highest standards for the sterilization of tools, and will use disposable paper trays, gloves, aprons, cups during each treatment.

    Welcoming each patient with a warm smile, our staff will do our utmost to make every visit enjoyable. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any concerns regarding your oral health.

Letter of Recommendation

Letter of recommendation from Dr. McLaren

It is with great delight that I write this letter to endorse Dr. Yukiko Minami. For close to 4 years, I had the pleasure of overseeing her development at UCLA in the Center for Esthetic Dentistry. Dr. Minami’s dedication to learn and grow was clearly apparent as she moved up from preceptor to resident and finally completed her time as senior resident.

Her professionalism extended beyond her technical skills, as she showcased both leadership and great teamwork with her fellow faculty members. Her positive attitude was welcomed by the patients she cared for and all those who worked alongside her.

As Director, it was with great pride to see all that she accomplished, and I expect that she will have continued success in her career. It is with great confidence that I can recommend the dental care provided by Dr. Minami.

It is an honor for me to write this letter of support for my former resident from UCLA.

She is an exceptional provider. She is thoughtful, meticulous, and well trained.

Dr. Minami has continuously worked to be the best aesthetic and restorative dentist she can be. She has sought out mentorship and training all over the world. She has incorporated these skills into her care, which she provides with honesty and a smile. She stays up to date with the latest science and technology in dentistry.

I hold Dr. Minami in very high regard, and you would be fortunate to have her as your dentist.
I give her my highest recommendation without reservation.
