Our Dentist for Quality General and Cosmetic Dental Care in Kahului
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.
