Meet Dr. Yokota

San Jose Endodontist

A native Californian, Dr. Yokota graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in Biological Sciences then received a dental degree from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, CA.  For five years, Dr. Yokota practiced general dentistry before starting his endodontic residency at Indiana University School of Dentistry where he earned both an endodontic certificate and master’s degree.  His training was focused on root canal therapy and endodontic microsurgery.  In addition, Dr. Yokota was a clinical instructor and conducted early research on digital radiography which was published in the Journal of Endodontics.  Afterwards, Dr. Yokota returned to San Jose to establish his endodontic practice in Willow Glen in 1993.  

Dr. Yokota is a long time member of the Santa Clara Dental Society, California Dental Association, American Dental Association, American Association of Endodontists, and Northern California Association of Endodontists.  He is also a board certified Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics, one of the few in the valley.

Dr. Yokota enjoys keeping up with the latest developments in endodontics. Each operatory is equipped with surgical operating microscopes and digital radiography, and the office has a CBCT “Cone-Beam Computed Tomography” machine which shows 3D radiographs. He takes several continuing education courses a year, constantly updating his knowledge. Outside the office, Dr. Yokota enjoys the San Jose Sharks, cycling, and skiing with his family.
