Our Supporting Staff

Dr. Yuka Iba,

Dr. Yuka Iba, Dr. Iba has been my best friend since were in college. We have enjoyed many things such as taking international trips together for the last 20 years. While working at the clinic we both put on our doctor faces but when we go out together after work we like to relax and be ourselves. Dr. Iba is a wonderful dentist whom I put my whole trust in. She is kind and polite and tour patients trust her completely. She has many fans among our patients! Dr. Iba has a message for all of our patients!

This spring marks 15 years since I started working at Inaba Dental Office. Our director, Dr. Yuriko, is a superior who I have always looked up to throughout our last 20 years of studying together and being friends. And, our advisor, Dr. Shigeru Inaba, is the dentist who I respect more than anyone. Back when I was a dental student and couldn't tell left from right, he thoroughly taught me all the fundamentals of dentistry. It is thanks to Dr. Inaba that I am the dentist that I am today. After graduating Nippon Dental University and taking a position in geriatric dentistry at the adjoining university hospital, I have had the opportunity to improve my skills and practice what I have learned starting with treating elderly patients with systemic illnesses. I take the time to listen to patients' worries and requests and include them in the process of figuring out the best treatment option. My goal is to help patients through treatment as if we were one in the same person.

I love to go on trips. In fact, just the other day I finished a 2 week trip to the South Pole. My treat to myself is leisurely spending time surrounded by nature. I enjoy long walks in the green woods, refreshing dives in the blue sea, soaking up the morning sunlight, experiencing every moment of every day in health, and gazing at the setting sun. Nature is the best!

Dr. Takahito Sato

Dr. Takahito SatoHe is our young hope, not only at Inaba Dental Office, but also at IPSG Interdisciplinary Practical Study Group. Please allow me to introduce Dr. Takahito Sato. Studying is his hobby. At least that is what it looks like since he faithfully attends our research meetings every weekend to improve his skills (haha). Many patients come from far off places, including overseas, to be treated by Dr. Sato. I find it wonderful how diligent Dr. Sato is in arranging his own affairs around his patients' schedules to make sure that they feel taken care of. In his private life he is good at making people laugh with his impressions. Here is a message from Dr. Sato to all of his patients.

From the time that I was a college student up until the present, I have not only studied dentistry technology under Dr. Shigeru Inaba, our office's advisor, but have also studied the philosophy of dentistry. I started my career in the geriatric dentistry department of the Tohoku University Hospital after graduating college. There I received extensive training in various fields including oral surgery, and after that I took my position at Inaba Dental Office. In order to provide the best treatment for patients I attend research conferences and training monthly outside of my normal working hours. Oftentimes I receive feedback from my patients in the form of surveys. One comment that stood out to me said, 'I am happy that he describes the treatment process in detail as we move forward.' As the comment states, I always make it a point to advance treatment while keeping the patient's worries in mind. It is important to balance the physical health aspect of treatment with the mental aspect. I believe that through this, not only can I provide the best possible treatment for my patients, but also my patients can see that I include them in even the most trivial aspects of treatment. This puts my patients at ease since they feel included in the treatment process.

I enjoy interacting with nature and cooking. This is how I unwind after work. On my days off I like to go to Mt. Takao in Tokyo or other natural spots. On longer vacations I like to visit onsen in Tohoku. I also like to go on hikes while in that area. I also like to make food and eat food. I get particularly fired up when enjoying barbecues in nature. Also, I like to eat whatever food is in season and my favorite is bamboo shoots in spring. Why don't you join me sometime to unwind in nature!

Dr. Kosuke Konishi

Dr. Kosuke KonishiInaba Dental Office, stage 2 of doctor introductions begins with...
Dr. Kosuke Konishi!

When I first saw the diligent Dr. Konishi studying at the IPSG Interdisciplinary Practical Study Group, led by Dr. Shigeru Inaba, our advisor, I knew that he was the dentist that we wanted to work at our office. That was 2 years ago. And finally this past April we were graced with his presence. He is very honest which is why many patients feel safe entrusting him with their treatment. It is also nice that sometimes he brings his own handmade lunch to work (haha). Dr. Konishi! We are looking forward to your hard work here ;). We also have a message from Dr. Konishi to his patients.

When I treat patients, I think of them as my own family. This means that I strive to provide the best medical care to each of my patients. Of course treatment technology is extremely important. But I prioritize communication with the patient throughout treatment above all else. Each one of my patients is my treasure and so I advise them on the best treatment methods. Provide sound support during the treatment process goes without saying. But it is after treatment is over that I believe a long-term relationship with the patient is important. Please come to me with any worries or requests that you may have. I aim to be a sensitive and friendly dentist.

Dr. Kosuke Konishi[Private]
Recently I have taken up cooking.

Actually, I am a beginner and just the other day I made hamburger for the first time in my life (haha).

I am looking forward to trying my hand at various different dishes.
