"A Healthy Smile Says it All..."

Welcome to the official website of Lance Ogata, DDS, a top dentist in Kahului and Maui. Dr. Ogata's dental practice is a state-of-the-art facility that cares for patients as family, or as we say in Hawaii "ohana." Dr. Ogata prides himself on open communication with patients and establishing a caring dentist-patient relationship with each person who visits.
At our office, each staff member focuses on a whole-body approach to dentistry; we know your smile affects not only your overall health, but also how you feel about our appearance. Through regular dental checkups and cosmetic dentistry services, Dr. Ogata will help you achieve and maintain a smile that conveys confidence.
A Paperless Dental Office
Dr. Ogata's office is an environmentally friendly, paperless dental practice that utilizes all-digital imaging technology. Digital imaging means no waiting time for films and exposes patients to 80 percent less radiation. Dr. Ogata can easily view and zoom in on digital images for precise diagnostic and treatment planning options.
All-digital equipment is not the only high-tech innovation Dr. Ogata offers – he also utilizes a CEREC (chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics) machine to create custom crowns the same day you come to his Kahului dental office. The ability to produce crowns in a day, instead of waiting weeks for the restoration to return from a dental laboratory, makes dental interventions more convenient and efficient for patients.
Patient Comfort Is Our Priority
Dr. Ogata and his staff understand that for some, going to the dentist can be a stressful experience. He works to ease these fears by offering gentle and compassionate dental services. When you enter his Kahului office, you are offered complimentary coffee, tea, or hot chocolate so you can feel right at home.
During a cleaning or dental procedure, Dr. Ogata offers iPads, wireless headphones, overhead televisions and DVDs to help patients feel more at ease. His friendly and caring staff will help make whatever arrangements make you feel more comfortable during your visit.
Short- and Long-Term Treatment Plans
Dr. Ogata offers two treatment plans: short- and long-term. Short-term plans are for immediate needs and concerns, such as when patients experience a dental emergency. Dr. Ogata provides emergency dental appointments when you or a loved breaks a tooth, experiences a loose crown or lost filling or a gum infection. Long-term treatments focus on optimum and stable lifetime dental health. This includes offering bacterial reduction with laser dentistry and regular teeth cleanings, restoration of dental implants, same-day crowns (CEREC Cad/Cam technology), or Invisalign® clear plastic aligners to help straighten your teeth. 
At his Kahului dentist office, Dr. Ogata  serves patients from both Kahului  and Maui. He prides himself on treating each patient as an individual and determines the best treatments on a case-by-case basis. He listens to his patients, and they have entrusted him with their care for more than 26 years.

Smile With Confidence

Let our dedicated dental professionals help you achieve a smile that you can be proud of!


"We may have only one hospital, but we have many superior doctors & dentists. I've had superior care from Dr. David Adams, Dr. Cora Tasaki, Dr. Darren Egami & others. But best of all I've found an extraordinary dentist in Dr. Lance Ogata. Finding a good dentist can be very hard. The state dental association is required to recommend all dentists equally.

I've had 8 root canals, and dozens of other procedures done by more than 20 dentists in my lifetime. One dentist put in a crown that fell out the next day! I know good dental work from bad, and I'm VERY picky. Dr Ogata is the BEST dentist I've ever had. I don't have any vested interest in promoting him. I'm a fairly new patient & it took me 8 years to find him, here on Maui. I hope this letter helps You find him faster than I did."

Sunny Hills, Lahaina (As published in the Maui News Editorials, September 21, 2007)

"Can you imagine never being nervous about going to the dentist? That is how you will feel if Dr. Lance Ogata is your dentist. For years, I went because it was the right thing to do for the healthy teeth and mouth I wanted.

Now I go because I know I have the best dentist ever. Plus, he has an incredibly efficient office staff, caring and pleasant assistants and a great hygienist.

What more could you want? I'll tell you. Several years ago, I was in having some crown work done. When he had completed the work on my teeth, I came out to get in my car. My friend was waiting for me there, had received a phone call while I was in the office. It was bad news! My dad had passed away on the Mainland. We were sitting in the front seat of the car crying when Dr. Lance must have looked out his window and noticed us. The next thing we knew, he was at our car windows, asking me if he had hurt me (while doing the dentistry) and why hadn't I told him. When I explained about my dad, he was amazing. He wanted us to come back into the office, take care of our tears and get some water or coffee - anything to make us feel better. Instead, we ended up going home to take care of calls to family.

That night, about 8:00 p.m., the phone rang. It was Dr. Lance, wanting to know how I was, and if there was anything he could do to help. I will never forget that gesture of kindness and compassion. So, not only is Dr. Lance the kind of professional you want working on your teeth, he is a friend and a person who cares about you personally, not just as another patient. He understands and practices aloha."

"I first came to Lance Ogata with his office was still in Kihei. He was so professional and caring that I have gone to him ever since. Even though I live on Lahaina side, it is more than worth it to drive across island to see him. He always calls to see if things are going well after a procedure. No other dentist I have gone to has ever done that for me.

I would, and have, recommended Lance Ogata to others. For me, his professional skills, his caring staff, and his aloha to all his patients are the hallmarks of a great person and dentist."
