The World Cup Sailing Tournament was held at Enoshima in September of last year.

The athletes from each country stayed in Fujisawa and Kamakura city for about one month, and at that time, Dr.Francoise Broekhof chief doctor of the Dutch sailing team, was searching for an English speaking dentist to take care of any dental troubles while the athletes were staying in Japan.

Last Tuesday evening she called me from the Netherlands to ask if I could treat one of her athletes that had a emergency dental problem.Next morning, 2012 London Olympics / 2016 Rio Olympics RSX class champion Dorian Van Rijsselberge came to my clinic in Kugenuma Kaigan. When I met him, I was very impressed with his physical condition, 190 cm tall and very nice and friendly guy.

It was a great honor to support the Dutch Olympic team and such an outgoing olympic athlete as a patient.

I wish him luck in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics!

I have presented a research poster at the 1st Asia Association for Disability and Oral Healh in Taiwan from April 12th through April 15th, 2019. About 300 dentists involved in medical care for people with disabilities from various Asian countries participated and exchanged information about the current situation in Asia.

I had productive time, met many dentists and made some new friends.
