Over the course of more than 25 years in business, GMS Dental Centers have established the kind of long-term relationships with patients that allow an office to thrive. The company employs many licensed dentists, hygienists, and dental specialists, as well as a former IRS agent who gets paid in people not yelling at him. Each location treats kids and adults to cosmetic, preventative, and procedural care, and dental teams also perform ultra-modern services such as Zoom! whitening, straightening with Invisalign, and installing quarter-inch HDTVs in incisors.
Dr. Russell H. Masunaga keeps patients’ mouths in optimal health while ensuring a comfortable, virtually pain-free experience through the use of laser technology. With lasers, Dr. Masunaga can often avoid the use of anesthetics when removing tooth decay in a quicker, more precise manner than standard drilling procedures. He also fills cavities with tooth-colored composites for a unified, natural-looking smile. With office hours available Monday–Saturday, Dr. Masunaga makes scheduling a visit more accessible, as well.
Dr. Leialoha Leung’s team of dental deputies transforms drab mouths into gleaming smilescapes with a potent blend of light, heat, pressure, and peroxide. Teeth can sink comfortably into custom-tailored SpaWhite trays loaded with pH-balanced foam, then bask languidly as blue Daylight beams activate the elixir. Each 30-minute session eradicates wine, coffee, and tobacco stains without home-whitening formulas’ burning pangs or powdered donuts’ ephemeral results. Once SpaWhite has worked its magic, Dr. Leialoha graciously examines every inch of newly incandescent tusks to ensure their integrity. On their way out, freshly illuminated faces can pause in front of the clinic’s panoramic windows to catch peeps of Diamond Head and Kahala before palming personal whitening pens for touchups and writing grocery lists on a spouse's teeth.
Dr. Le has been practicing clean and careful dentistry in Honolulu since 1991. She and her expert technicians administer gentle two-hour Zoom! whitening treatments, which hone the power of a scientifically designed Zoom! light plus its other half, a layer of discoloration-busting gel. Fast and effective, the in-office procedure produces shade-shifting results of up to eight shades on average. For added comfort, customers can entertain themselves with the office's complimentary Wi-Fi, nearby TV screens, or by simply saying "cheese" at the most inopportune moment.
Within the sleek and stylish walls of Ala Moana Dental Care, Dr. Declan Devereux and his team of trained technicians focus their wealth of experience and advanced technology on the health and longevity of pearly, toothy grins. The mouthsperience includes a comprehensive examination, where the dentist will lay out his oral plan of attack, point out problem areas, and check for early signs of disease, and a set of x-rays ensure teeth and their corresponding spirit animals stay firmly rooted. Mouth bones also receive a thorough scrub down which employs thorough, yet gentle methods to remove cavity-causing debris and leftover confetti, leaving maws with glinty accessories to flash at friends and warn unsuspecting motorists of their broken headlights.
Dr. Dennis Nagata draws upon more than 30 years of experience—including training at USC and a teaching gig at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies—to build healthy, beautiful smiles. Along with fellow dentist Dr. Wesley Sato and a staff of caring assistants, he furbishes teeth using tools such as Zoom! whitening gel, Invisalign aligners, and dental implants. To remove mercury sources from the mouth, the dentists can replace amalgam fillings with composite fillings or inlays made of hard materials such as gold, ceramics, or calculus proofs. They can also address jaw pain, headaches, and other symptoms of TMJ using digital jaw-tracking instruments and neuromuscular treatments such as low-frequency TENS.
