A trial lesson was the deciding factor for me in choosing Shin-Tokyo!

After arriving in Japan, I had no idea what kind of job I wanted to do, and looked at various universities and vocational schools. During this period, I received a trial lesson at Shin-Tokyo. I not only very much enjoyed the process of creating teeth, but also found the atmosphere at the school to be bright and full of energy, so I made my decision to study here. The school has many practical lessons, and you get to make a lot of teeth. They also offer excellent support for learning Japanese, allowing me to enhance my language skills at the same time.
