Director Takemoto is one of the founding members of the World Society of Lingual Orthodontics, the chairman of its first convention (New York 2006), the second chairman of the World society of Lingual Orthodontics, (2009-2012), and is one of the foremost leaders of lingual orthodontics in the world. Several times each year, Dr. Takemoto offers lectures and seminars not only within Japan but also around the world, which have been attended by over 5000 from orthodontists all over the world.
We want as many people as possible to get a brighter, more perfect smiles but without attracting attention to their orthodontics. With this idea in mind, we opened our first orthodontics office in Shin-Matsudo in 1983. Since then, encouraged by the smiles of our satisfied patients after their treatment was completed, we opened Japan's first invisible orthodontics clinic, E-LINE, in Nishi-Azabu. This clinic was relocated to Kudanshita in May 1998 with the purpose of providing a more sophisticated treatment environment.
Moving forward, we will continue to strive to make lingual orthodontics more common and to create a superior clinic and laboratory which offers the highest quality treatment.
