Dr. Fukuda was born in Ottawa, Canada and raised in Bridge City, Texas.. Born to Dr. Mamoru Fukuda and Maureen Fukuda, he is one of 4 sons of immigrant parents. They immigrated to this country from Japan and Scotland. Dr. Fukuda has been married to Sandy for 30 years, they have 2 grown children, Aharon and Samantha.
After graduating from Bridge City High he went on to do his undergraduate work at Lamar University, eventually graduating from The University of Texas Dental School in Houston in 1990. Dr. Fukuda then went on to spend 3 years with Dental America in Lubbock and Abilene, though “home” kept calling. After returning to this area in 1992, he worked for Dr. Chuck Majors in Bridge City,TX. Dr. Majors taught him how to focus more on high quality, cutting edge dentistry, which lead Dr. Fukuda to open his first practice in August of 1994 on 16th St. in Orange.This practice grew to the point where a new facility had to be built in 2002 on Highway 62.
Although Dr. Fukuda had an extremely rewarding career in general dentistry, the desire to specialize his talents became so strong that he sold his practice in 2010 and began the venture of focusing more on his favorite aspect of dentistry which was dentures and partials. Dr. Fukuda loves the hands on fabrication and construction. His ultimate dream is to create a home for clients wanting the best in denture fabrication along with the most compassionate care.
When not working Dr Fukuda enjoys training as a Competitive Powerlifter, winning the World Championship in Las Vegas in November of 2012. He also enjoys a competitive and spirited round of golf with his best friends.
Dr. Fukuda is a member of the Academy of Small Diameter Implants and he is currently serving as an adjunct professor at Lamar Institute of Technology School of Dental Hygiene.
