Feliz Hiroo Dental Clinic in Shibuya is home to Dr. Hisae Harai, an English-speaking dentist. She traveled to Spain a few decades ago and loved the place. She used the Spanish word feliz (happy) when she named her Hiroo clinic ten years ago. The office’s warm, sunny colors and atmosphere reflect that feeling. The clinic handles everything from general to preventive and cosmetic dentistry, including pediatric dentistry, basic dental implants and whitening. Finding a dentist who is happy to treat children is relatively rare. Dr. Harai worked at a pediatric dental clinic for three years after graduating from Hokkaido University’s dental school, and she and her staff are all skilled at and comfortable with treating kids, including infants. Dr. Harai fully recognizes the relationship between oral problems such as gum diseases and diseases in the rest of the body, and treats patients with that in mind. For that reason, she’s also a firm believer in probiotics and, when necessary, prescribe bacteria therapy to keep the mouth healthy. About ten to fifteen percent of the clinic’s patients come from abroad, including twenty-four countries.
