He's the best!
Excellent service. Any questions about my dental health, brushing or flossing were answered. Appointment wait time is generally 10 minutes, but they recommend scheduling a year in advance.
Thanks for taking me on such short notice.
Best Dentist (and office) on the Planet... they took me in an emergency/crunch situation. From the receptionist to the Dental Assistants, they were amazing. They got me in expeditiously and with care and concern. Dr. Tanaka has an incredible personality, is engaging and obviously super talented. Before leaving the office, I made appointments for both my husband and Mom!!! Can't wait to go back for my check-up and cleaning!
Always a pleasure visiting the dental office of Dr.Tanaka and his team..Its always an awesome friendly atmosphere.
Thank you for being such a blessing to my family and I
Dr. Paul and his staff were very kind and understanding about my concerns. I hate the poke of the needles but Dr. Paul did such a caring and gentle touch that I hardly felt it. I really appreciated the time he took to meet my needs. Many times this does not happen in other dental offices. We also had many laughs which helped lighten the time spent. I would highly recommend Dr. Paul for any procedure for your teeth. You won't regret your decision.
Thank you Dr Paul, Gladys, and Liz!
You guys are always awsome.
I don't usually answer to these feedbacks But with Paul Tanaka and his angels I must because they are all so awesome always! I use the term Angel Respectfully because they are all so friendly but also very professional! I think if Dr Tanaka retires, or not, he could write a book on How to run a business successfully! Because he sure as heck, knows how to do it!
Mahaloz to him and his Awesome Angels
Dr Paul has been my dentist for over 12 years. He and his staff has provided excellent professional care. He has my highest recommendation.
The service was excellent and the staff was great it’s such a family friendly environment l love everybody there thanks for taking care of me and my Ohana
The service was excellent and comfortable and the staff was great
Dr Paul Tanaka along with his staff are amazing.
I always leave his office happy knowing that he will give me the best care for my teeth and smile .
Dr. Tanaka should feel proud today - he was able to save a 25 year old crown that came off. Had the crown been anyone else’s work I would have had to endure a full replacement. Since the original crown was made and put in place by Dr. Tanaka the quality was so good he was able to save it and put it back in place! Well done all!
Dr. Paul Tanaka and his staff are the best! Compassionate, kind, down to earth, great educators and very patient. They made me feel comfortable & safe. Thank you very much for an awesome experience, and my teeth look and feel great too!
Thanks for taking me in right away when my crown came out even if your schedule was packed. Not only does my mouth feel complete now, but with your upbeat staff, I left with an even happier spirit. Thanks!
It is always nice to go to Dr. Tanaka's ohana!
I found Dr.Paul while searching for help with my TMJ/TMD. I felt Welcomed and the genuineness of Dr.Paul & staff as soon as I walked in the door. I always feel that they have my best interest in mind while being treated. I appreciate Gladys for her kindness and exceptional care. And of course the fun and humor that Dr. Paul always adds and mixes in as part of his treatments. I’ve always been a “Challenging Case” but I somehow always feel at ease knowing that if need be, Dr. Paul will go the extra mile to find the best solution. I’m thankful that I found Dr. Paul.
I was experiencing pain in my lower jaw and tooth. i called Dr. Paul and his team was able to squeeze me into their schedule. they quickly diagnosed my problem and got me the treatment i didn't know i needed. By that evening, i was pain free. Mahalo to Dr. Paul and his wonderful team!
I’ve seen Dr Tanaka since I was a child and he and his staff have been amazing since day one! They all provide the best customer service!
Had my teeth cleaned and checked by Orange. She is outstanding. Describes what she sees and suggests what I can do to take better care of my teeth. A very competent and caring professional.

Dr. Tanaka took care of my dental problem efficiently and he did a good job.
Very efficient, friendly and professional staff. Dr. Tanaka is very knowledgeable and fun to talk to as well.
Dr Tanaka uses the latest technologies to provide the best service. He has the techniques and skills that he uses to make the experience comfortable, and pain free. I believe this also makes for a comfortable, and quick recovery after any procedure. He also has the happiest, most helpful, and nicest staff. I've never been in an office that works so well together. Thanks, Dr Tanaka and team!

Thank you very much for taking care of my dental health! I appreciate and look forward to your expertise and kind treatment! God bless you!
The staff bends over backwards to accommodate the patients. The care is complete and professional. I love their seasonal decorations!
I always wonder what will we be celebrating this time because Dr. Tanaka’s office is always decorated to have fun. The office is inviting, clean; and the staff are always friendly and professional. They don’t just act this way—they are and it seems that the Dr. Tanaka always keeps up with the latest technology in caring for your teeth and mouth.
Dr. Tanaka and his staff are not only very professional and knowledgeable, but caring and compassionate too. It’s always a pleasure to visit them; even if it’s for an intensive procedure. I know I’m in very capable hands.

Wonderful experience. Best dental hygiene service.
As always, a very positive experience!
First impression are crucial, Chantelle provided a WARM greeting that sets the mood for a wonderful experience. Jennifer did a fantastic cleaning with that soft firm touch only experienced Hygienists can provide. She was professional and thorough and it was demonstrated in her efficient clinical technique. Dr. Paul with his humor is like a warming fireplace. The staff always couteous. Thanks to Chantelle for escorting my 5 yr old to bathroom. Where else can you find such clientele, not customer service. Mahalos, can't wait to come again!!!
Everyone is professional, friendly and patient, especially Dr. Tanaka. Love the perspective and accommodation. I highly recommend them. Their work is excellent.
The only suggestion I have is if the staff could wear name tags. A minor inconvenience.
As always, excellent service and the best customer service. Actually, you are not a customer, you are family!
I always enjoy my visits to Dr. Tanaka’s office.
very friendly atmosphere , excellent and reliable customer service.
Always a great experience, Dr. Tanaka and his staff are very professional and pleasant.

Dr. Tanaka is the best dentist I have been to and will continue to stay with him as long as I am able. He, along with everyone on his staff are the best people to see. The entire office is happy to be working there and have nothing but the best to say about Dr. Tanaka. This means a lot to me as a patient who has had a significant amount of dental work throughout many years! Thank you to Dr. Tanaka and staff!
I know it sounds crazy but I look forward to my dental appoints with Paul and his great staff. You're part of their family and treat you that way. They do great work and always make me laugh at the same time.

Absolutely the best!
I appreciate the patience of both Gladys and dr Paul. My handicap situation is not easy. Cleaning was excellent
The staff members are kind, patient and courteous. Dr. Tanaka explains clearly what exactly is needed for the benefit of the patient.
Always friendly and thorough.
Maybe, just maybe, I cracked my molar so I’d have a reason to visit Dr. Tanaka and his staff because it’s such an upbeat and positive place.
Love Paul and the crew! Always makes something many people hate doing as enjoyable as possible! Keep it up guys!

Outstanding professional, courteous and friendly service by Dr. Tanaka and his entire staff. My wife and I travel from Makaha and Waipahu to Dr. Tanaka's offfice in Kahala. because we receive the best dental service. Highly recommended!!!
Outstanding patient service! Always impressed with the "feel good" energy Dr. Tanaka and his entire staff offers.
Staff is always friendly. Very satisfied with my dental care.
Excellent all around....!
Dr Tanaka and his staff make you feel that you are the most important of all their patients. I never before thought it would be fun to go the dentist...
Always good vibes in Dr. Tanaka’s office!
In addition to his obvious skill and experience in dentistry, Dr. Tanaka is also a great communicator and connector with his patients. And his staff reflects the same stellar qualities. 5 stars for sure!
The entire staff is the very best in Hawaii! I feel comfortable and relaxed knowing the care for me is going to be excellent! The skill, kindness, and a cheerful attitude by everyone helps me to feel no stress. Going to Dr Tanaka has taken all the anxiety of going to the dentist. Because of their friendliness, I actually look forward to seeing “my friends” at Dr Tanaka’s dental office! No pain, big gain, no stress, happy place! I’m blessed to be a patient of Dr Tanaka!??
Friendly, first class service!
I first started to go to Dr. Paul because I told him I hate dentists—well actually dental work. I hate the drilling and taste of blood etc. in my mouth. To my surprise, Dr. Had modern equipment that dissipated my fears. I was numbed to not hear drills, water is prayed often and sucked up so no spitting. Everyone is cheerful, greet you with sincerity, and truly the visit is done with the latest equipment and done thoroughly. I appreciate that everything is visible to the patient to see and all concerns are addressed and recorded. Every cleaning visit is ended with Dr.’s final inspection.
Cheerful, Friendly, Expert, and Caring. Highly recommend.
I’’m a new patient of Dr Tanaka and I have never had a more thorough exam from my teeth to my gums to muscles around the mouth, joints of my jaws, etc. I was so impressed. He used very updated X-ray machines. The cleaning I received from the hygienist was also thorough and gentle. The atmosphere there is uplifting, fun and bonding. I’ve never enjoyed going to the dentist till now.
Dr. Tanaka was, as usual, pain free. I didn't even feel 'the little pinch'! The staff makes going to the dentist worth the trip. Now if he needs to work on getting the 'glass cesspool' to look like a fish tank again! Mahalo Nui Loa!
Dr. Tanaka and his friendly, efficient staff are wonderful! From the moment you enter the seasonally decorated office, until the time you leave with a treat, you feel welcomed, relaxed and appreciated. My family and I have been patients for over 25 years and recommend Dr. Tanaka to friends and family without hesitation. Dr. Tanaka is professional, personable, and gentle and provides excellent dental care!
Dr. Tanaka and his staff provide honest and professional dental care. The staff is super friendly and helpful led by the doctor’s ever present smile and good humor. Wish I had gone to him years earlier.
As usual, had a wonderful experience with Dr.Tanaka Nd his staff.
Mahalo for a great job!
We have been seeing Dr. Tanaka for over ten years now. We started seeing him just after we moved to the island. My mom, dad, brother and his family were, and still are, seeing Dr. Tanaka. We come from Kailua for our appointments. We do this because of the friendly staff but, most importantly, the quality care we receive from Dr. Tanaka and his staff. He is the best dentist and the staff are always friendly. We highly recommend Dr. Tanaka
This review is so long overdue! Where do I begin?! Doc and his crew are AMAZING! Upon walking in to leaving their office, they have always made me feel so cared for, everytime. Their services are on point, their after care is just as good and their ability to make you laugh but still be professional are the type of people I want to do business with (just my personal preference).
I went to doctor for some MUCH NEEDED cosmetic dentistry and for over a year, I kept going back and forth due to family circumstances. This investment was going to be $20k+ so I had to make sure all my ducks were lined up before moving forward. Dr. was always there to work with me and my timeframe and throughout the process, I always felt at ease knowing that I would be fully taken care of.
Dr. Tanaka and his crew deserves an A+ to infinity! Thank you for all you do and for being you ??
If you're looking for a new dentist or thinking of getting some work done, give them a shot, they will not disappoint!
Doc and staff are true professionals and make the office a happy place to be. Thank you ALL for the impeccable work and non-stop laughs!
Entire staff is so friendly, and extremelyn customer oriented in service and the functions that they perform. If all of our organizations function like them this world would be awesome.
Dr. Tanaka is a skillful dentist and he has very competent assistants.

I look forward to to going to the dentist! Dr. Paul, Orange, and the entire staff are excellent practitioners in their chosen field, dentistry! They are always keeping up with the advancement in dentistry, sharing that knowledge with their patients, and always are thorough in their care. A five star experience for me!

Very appreciative for scheduling me an emergency appt during your busy day and especially the good news about my cracked tooth repair!
Staff is always pleasant and great service!
As always the case, the staff were very professional and efficient. I enjoy seeing all of them and Dr. Tanaka. This time, we had a bigger issue yesterday than just cleaning and Dr. Tanaka with his team did a great job with my bad tooth.
Also, I am impressed with his new branding! The colors are memorable and the logo is perfectly describes Dr. Tanaka's appreciation for ocean life.
Why didn't I switch earlier. Great doc and staff.
Dr. Paul Tanaka and ALL the staff are awesome!!! Most people dread going to the dentist but they make it such a pleasant experience. You can see that it's a team that cares about one another and their patients. I highly recommend Dr. Tanaka. You will not be disappointed.
One of the friendliest offices on the whole island - sometimes you forget you are at a dentist appointment. Plus the care is incredibly competent.
Dr. Paul Tanaka and his staff are the best! Quality customer service from their receptionist, hygienist, and customer care. Dr. Tanaka is great! I highly recommend Dr. Tanaka and his team!
Paul is the best dentist I've ever had and Orange ALWAYS does a great job! I'm very satisfied.
The staff here is ALWAYS friendly and provides the most comfortable and pleasant experience every single time.. and that's coming from someone who is terrified of going to the dentist. I would highly recommend Dr. Tanaka's office!
Best dentist in Hawaii. All staff are friendly and caring.
Trust and giggles go a long way for excellence!
The staff goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable and you know that you are a valued patient. The harmony amongst the staff helps the patient to feel more peaceful.
Had teeth cleaned. Orange was thorough as usual and carefully explains what she sees going on with my teeth. Truly professional staff.
Great office, everyone is so welcoming and full of smiles, Its a joy to see everyone when I go
The best quality of service from Dr. Tanaka and staff! The time and commitment the staff puts into every detail is apparent from the minute you enter the front door. From a patient perspective, what is most impressive, is the absolute genuine care they all provide! Amazing experience!!!
I am treated like family. Paul and staff are caring and friendly. Makes my visit easy with no stress.
The service was the most excellence i had a wonderful experience i would recommend his service to anyone who needs it
WOW is all I can say! A hidden jam in Kahala. Everyone is so personal and friendly and for a moment I forgot my dentist fear. Dr Tanaka is kind and calming and so knowledgable. What a great experience. And then I get an ice cream on my way out? What a one of a kind experience. Thank you!
Best dentist/human being there could ever be!
I mean he truly cares about his patients- we are his friends too??
I called Dr Tanaka on his day off and after hours bc I was having a tooth problem that shot up to my head. I was scared but he asked me to do a couple things and diagnosed my problem. The next day his staff fit me in to his busy schedule. I am so thankful to Dr Tanaka and his wonderful staff!
Always the best!! Would never choose any other Dentist!
I really enjoy coming to the dentist. Everyone is so happy and friendly and always on time. The special monthly themes make it fun!
Doctor and his staff are personable, and does an amazing job.
Great atmosphere and staff. Got a new crown put in quickly and painlessly. Not only am I thrilled that I can chew comfortably again, but also left with a smile as Dr Tanaka and staff are not only caring but lots of fun.
Dr. Tanaka is the best and his team is amazing!
Been a patient for a looooooong time. If you weren't good I would not have stayed.
Absolutely NO complaints
Thorough and detailed attention to your teeth and any concerns are addressed right away!
Best dentist I ever had. Great personality. Wonderful staff. Pleasure to go to the dentist.
World class customer service in all aspects of clinical competency, patient services, and administrative support. Always a stress free and efficient visit. Dr. Tanaka and staff always present the highest level of quality in all aspects of running a dental practice.

Dr. Tanaka, yet again, saved me from a possible titanium implant I'm the poster child of their outgoing phone message "changing smiles changing lives". Paul Tanaka is an artist with smiles?
Always friendly , courteous and professional. Staff is great.
Orange is the best!
