Hanabusa Dental Clinic, Japan’s first “boutique dental clinic” in the heart of fashion mecca Shibuya, opened in May 2015. The Practitioner: World-famous silver accessory designer and owner of Japanese brand Fangophilia, Taro Hanabusa @fangophilia. Of course, he is a dentist as well.
According to Japan Info, Hanabusa graduated with a degree in dentistry from Tohoku University and practiced for three years, but was also interested in body modification (such as tattoos) and had the idea of creating jewelry that is based on a mold of a person’s body parts, such as fingers, teeth, even kneecaps.
