February is NATIONAL CHILDRENS DENTAL HEALTH MONTH!
Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health.

Hello world!

Welcome to my blog!  I started this blog as a way of connecting with you, and to have a dialog about all things relating to dental health… from new technologies and scientific learnings, to basic oral care information that will be useful to you as you go about your daily life.   I have a passion for everything dental, so in addition to great oral health,  I am also  interested in products on the market, products for caring for your teeth.. and products we put in our mouths..  I guess in my case, that is mostly food.. and yes, we will talk about that as well… as it relates to oral health of course.

There is so much information out there… some really good… but sadly, some  misinformation as well.   I promise that the information on the topics we discuss will be well researched, and if it is just my opinion, I will let you know.  I hope to engage you.. so please comment and let me know what you are thinking.  I also hope you will find this blog entertaining, and enjoy reading this.  Ask me anything, I will try my best to provide you with the information you need.

I was raised on the island of Oahu.  In the summer when the surf is up on the South Shore,  you will find me in the water at the crack of dawn.  I can’t think of a better life, living in Hawaii, and doing dentistry.  Every day, I get to live in paradise and take care of Hawaii’s oral health.  I love the islands and the community.  Through our discussions, I hope to give you insight into Hawaii and its’ oral health, and how it is to live and work in this beautiful place.
