Gold fronts in Higashi?

First dentist office/orthodontist opened in my town recently. These offices have been springing up all over hokkaido in the two years I've been living here, and it was only a matter of time until we got one in my humble town. Recently, the Japanese have caught the American obsession with having straight, white teeth and all these orthodontists have filled a growing demand for dental work. Perhaps we take it too far in the US(as some of my British friends say) but with the state of Japanese oral hygiene being what it is(esp in rural Hokkaido) I welcome this oral pioneer to Higashikagura and I hope he can help out some of my many snaggle-toothed students.
