OMG. Are you kidding? Hello kitty dentist really exists in koto-ku, Tokyo. Definitely the pink-est + cutest dentist on earth. It’s called “Hearts Dental Clinic.” On Jan 13th, the clinic opened with full supports by sanrio japan, and it’s sanrio approved and pink pink… super pink inside!!
The reason for making a “Hello Kitty” dental clinic isn’t simply that Japan is crazy for Kitty—it is—but rather, the clinic uses the character as a way to make going to the dentist less nerve racking for patients, especially younger ones. This is one of the major reasons why Japanese pre-school buses look like giant puppy dogs or Pokémon characters. Their cute characters make kids want to ride them much more than a boring old bus.

You, japan, really love hello kitty! Who doesn’t love the idea of Hearts dental clinic for kids!
