I had to post this today. I took my 2 year old son to the dentist this morning. I was bracing myself for a meltdown but I was more than pleasantly surprised when he walked out smiling from ear to ear.
At first glance, Kodomono Haisha looks like a daycare. It's filled with toys, bright colors, and loads of Disney decor. Kids can play with toy trains and Mr. Potato Head while they wait.
I love that the dentists don't wear white. They dress in colorful pink uniforms.
Everyone is bright and cheerful. Kids can even watch Anpanman cartoons during their treatment.
My son didn't like the XRay part since he had to bite and hold a chip in his mouth, but the doctor tried to make it pleasant with a smiley face lead apron and colorful designs in the room.
At the end of the appointment, he got a toy, a must have after an appointment.
We had Dr. Uchimura, a cheerful English speaking lady, who was very considerate and friendly. There are other English speaking doctors as well.
If you need dental care that isn't scary. One word sums it up: Kodomono Haishasan (The Children's Debtist)
Nearest station: Shirogane Takanawa, exit 4. Right in front of station, across from Starbucks Coffee.
