MAUI, HI, April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ - Lahaina dentist, Dr. Dennis Ishimoto, is pleased to celebrate his 39th year of dedicated service to citizens of the Lahaina community and surrounding areas in Hawaii.
Dr. Ishimoto has used his general, restorative, cosmetic, and preventative dentistry expertise to deliver health, function, and beauty to generations of families, establishing him as a top dentist in Lahaina. He has prided himself on bringing the latest innovations in dental treatment and technology to his Lahaina dental practice, including teeth whitening, restoring dental implants, and porcelain crowns.
Taking care of his community has always been core to Dr. Ishimoto's belief system. "As part of my celebration of service, I'm spreading the word that April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month and that screenings must become a core component of the health program for all citizens. At my dental practice in Lahaina, we have conducted oral cancer screenings as part of routine new patient and continuing care exams for years. The procedure is rapid and painless, involving a technological and visual examination of the oral cavity. It is critical to early detection and treatment of oral cancer, however, not all citizens are aware that they should be screened."
"I'm so proud to have been practicing dentistry for 39 years in Lahaina," said Dr. Ishimoto, "I feel a great respect for all the patients that I see on a daily basis—I dedicate myself to managing their oral health and educating them on options and opportunities to improve their health, function, and beauty."
Dr. Ishimoto received his undergraduate degree at Drake University in Iowa, and attained his DDS at the University Of Nebraska Dental School. He is a former member of the Hawaii State Dental Board. He currently serves as a Dental Board examiner for the Commission on Dental Competency Assessments (CDCA).
"I feel responsible for providing accurate information and always recommend scheduled exams with oral cancer screenings in Lahaina, especially if patients have never received one before," said Dr. Ishimoto, "To celebrate years of continued dental service is so wonderful and I can't thank my patients and community members enough for their continued support!"
Dr. Ishimoto continues an active and dynamic dental practice, continuing to accept new patients. Dennis N. Ishimoto, DDS Inc. is located at 840 Wainee Street, Lahaina, HI 96761, United States; patients can learn more and book an appointment at (808) 661-8126 or dentistlahaina.com.
