Orange, Liz, Elaine, Dr. T, Dari, Gladys, Lisa.. MIA: Jenn, Chantell



Orange is our newest Dental Hygienist.  Orange is just like her name.  She is so very sweet and is like a ray of sunshine every morning in the office.


Elizabeth is more foundly referred to a "Liz" in our office.  All of our patients just love Liz.  For as many years as Liz has been working here, she times those years by 10 because she says working for Dr is like knowing him for a long time in a short period and all the work that she has to do is making her age faster.  We just love Liz.


Elaine has been Dr's Assistant for over 30 years.  By the time you read this, she has probably retired.  LOL!  Dr says she knows more about Dentistry than some Dentists - that includes him!  She definitely is one of the best Assistants a dentist could ever have.

 Dr. T-

Dr Tanaka is a down to earth, fish loving, Local Boy at heart!


Dari is our roving Assistant.  She is the glue that keeps our clinical areas working together.  She was raised in Haiku and is as sweet as a Maui girl can be, but when she gets mad at Dr, she's like a tita out of Kalihi!  We all love Dari.


Gladys is our long time Dental Hygienist.  Dr calls her the "Original Soft Touch Hygienist". She has been at our office for over 25 years.  Dr has fun joking with everyone in the office, but is especially cautious with Gladys because she is the only one who can put him in his place. 


Lisa has been with the practice since she was out of High School and Dr is so fortunate and happy that she has decided to make Dental Assisting her career.  She has grown into an awesome Dental Assistant.  Dr is proud to refer to her as his "Chinese daughter" and like any daughter, she will unleash her sassiness to Dr.


Chantell is our Financial Coordinator


Jenn comes to our office with a wealth of dental knowledge.  Before becoming a Dental Hygienist, Jenn was an Office Manager for a very large dental practice.  Dr calls upon Jenn to help him treat our patients with more involved gum problems.  Of all the people in the office, Jenn speaks the most proper English, but get her excited and her Filipino accent "leaks" out.
