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 enjoys keeping up with the latest developments in endodontics. Each operatory is equipped with a surgical operating microscope and digital radiography. He takes several continuing education courses a year, constantly updating his knowledge. Outside the office, he enjoys the San Jose Sharks, cycling, and skiing with his wife and children.
