Aloha, I’m Anela. I have been the Clinical Coordinator here at Smile Hawaii since 2001. My passion is helping people and I love our patients. I enjoy spending time with my husband, children and grand children. Hope to see you soon!
Aloha! My name is Elysa and I have been with Dr. Ogata since Nov 2017. I have been in the dental field since 2007 starting out at the Maui Oral Health center and then furthering my career in private dental offices, oral surgery and now here at Smile Hawaii. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my other half Stephen, our 2 dogs, our cat and Jackson Chameleons. I also love going to Alaska to go fishing in the summer and cooking!
I am bilingual in both English and Spanish. Prior to graduating Hygiene school from UHMC in 2011 I was fortunate to work in several aspects of dentistry and have gained a wide array of knowledge along the way. I have a cheerful personality, love building trusting relationships with patients while maintaining a comfortable environment. I married my husband, Eric in 2014, we have one daughter, Mahina. Together we enjoy being outdoors taking in all the beauty Maui has to offer.
Hello! My name is Teal and I’m one of Smile Hawaii’s Dental Hygienists. I moved to Maui in 2007 and graduated from UHMC in 2013 with my Associates of Science In Dental Hygiene. I have a passion for helping others and a love for Hygiene. I enjoy learning new techniques and continue to work on improving myself as a clinician, educator, and colleague. My husband and I are proud to call Maui our home and look forward to raising our son here. I look forward to serving you!
Aloha, my name is Zina and I have been a dental assistant for about 30 years. The best part of my job is seeing our patients complete their treatment and leave with a brand new smile. In my spare time, I love to travel, going to the beach/pool and spending time with family and friends. Life is good, enjoy every moment!
Aloha, my name is Kamalei. I was born and raised on Maui. I moved to Washington at the end of 2013 to see what it was like being away from everything I knew. I realized how important it was to have my children grow up with family surrounding them, so I returned to Maui with my three boys at the beginning of 2018. I enjoy spending time with my kids.
