Welcoming new Patients

Honolulu Dentist Terrance Cleveland DDS welcomes new patients to his practice. As a family dentist, we care for Keiki to Kupuna . Each new patient visit includes a comprehensive oral exam and x-rays followed by a personal and private consultation, where Dr. Cleveland will share the results of your exam, and discuss treatment or follow up plans.


Healthy Teeth make Beautiful Smiles

Our dental practice is focused on your oral health. We believe that “Healthy Teeth make Beautiful Smiles”, and will approach your care using conservative, high quality procedures that meet or exceed standards of care.  The philosophy we have is that knowledge is power, and strive to educate our patients and the community about dental care as the foundation to improve oral and overall health. We know this approach will result in beautiful long lasting smiles.

As a preventative dentist, Dr. Cleveland emphasizes regular dental cleanings and exams, consistent home care, consisting of tooth brushing, flossing and rinsing, and timely intervention for any dental issues.   Routine care and maintenance along with timely awareness and appreciation for your oral health is the best way to eliminate many of the problems you may experience. 

The scope of preventive dentistry may extend beyond the mouth. Current research continues to confirm that a clean and disease free mouth may help prevent other medical problems, and that oral health is closely connected to overall health.  Additionally, habits that may be negatively influencing your overall health include poor diet and smoking, as well as other factors.

We look forward to seeing you!

We hope that this site is helpful to you in learning about how we feel about dentistry.  We are hoping you find our articles helpful, and encourage you to engage in questions and comments.  Please subscribe to Dr. Cleveland’s Blog, and you will receive all articles via email!!!  We would love to get to know you better, and share stories about our patient community.   If you are interested in making an appointment, please contact us!

About Me

I run a private general dentistry practice in Honolulu, Hawaii.  I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of California- Santa Barbara, and my Doctorate of Dental Science from the University of the Pacific- Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco.  I am a member of the Hawaii Dental Association, and continue to commit myself to continuing education.
I love being a dentist.  For me, dentistry combines science and art.  A self-proclaimed science nerd, I find the complexities of the human body, and the impact of oral health on a person’s total well being facsinating.  I cannot stress enough the importance of taking good care of your teeth!   Growing up in the islands, I really appreciate the beauty of Hawaii’s people, and a great deal of it is expressed through our smiles.  Healthy Teeth make Beautiful Smiles.
Dentistry has provided me many opportunities to be involved. I was honored to be a part of dental missions to Cambodia, El Salvador, Nepal and Papua New Guinea. These life changing experiences drove home the importance of preventative dentistry, and reminded me that we in Hawaii live in good fortune and abundance. Back in Hawaii, I was privileged to work in Kauai and Molokai serving the people there, and on Oahu, the Aloha Medical Mission Dental Clinic. Today, my biggest joy is my relationship with my patients, my community and my family. I would be honored to care for you, your family and friends. Please come see me, explore my website, and my blog.

From the moment you step into Dr. Terrance Cleveland, DDS's office, you know you've come to the right place.  The office is clean, welcoming, and beautifully appointed.  The staff is always courteous and friendly.  They greet their patients by first name and you get the feeling of being part of a great dental family. Dr. Cleveland, office staff, and staff of dental hygienists operate a highly professional and modern, up to date facility.  They use the latest dental care technology and techniques.  Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Cleveland cared for patients with the highest level of health and safety protocols.   Dr. Cleveland emphasizes oral health and regular dental hygiene maintenance.  For those sensitive to pain, not to worry.  He is extremely caring, understanding, and gentle with his patients.  A while back, just before leaving for a trip, I had a dental emergency.  I made a call to Dr. Cleveland's office.  The office staff understood my situation and made an immediate appointment for me.  Dr. Cleveland resolved my dental emergency.  This is an example of the exemplary service you can come to expect and receive with Dr. Cleveland. You can and will feel confident and safe with Dr. Cleveland.  I commend him for your present and future dental needs.

If you're dentist fearful like me, you need to see Dr. Cleveland. The office is in the green building across from Don Quixote. Parking free with validation in structure. Making an appointment is really easy. The receptionists are very friendly and accommodating. The biggest plus is you don't have to wait months out for a general cleaning. All of the staff is personable which makes the experience less intimidating. Dr Cleveland is very gentle and checks in with you a lot when doing fillings to see if you're comfortable. He tells you enough about what's happening without making you scared. You see I really am a afraid cat around dentists and need to be treated like a baby lol. Overall I highly recommend their office!

Dr. Terrance Cleveland is very thorough. He is the first dentist that I have had that conducted a New Patient interview when I first started seeing him. I appreciated this extra step because I felt he got to know my dental records better that way, and it also helped my set goals for my future dental health. He is also very thorough and observant during dental examinations. He is proactive, which means he recognizes potential issues beforehand, and gives me instructions/advice on how to treat the issue so it doesn’t become more serious. His hygienic staff is considerate, friendly and gentle. I am in very capable hands at this dental practice.
