The Best
Dr. Lee is the best. He was very helpful & explained the procedures to help me understand what was going on.


I couldn't be happier with the dental care I received from Dr. Lewis & the staff at Wai'alae Dental Care. Excellent! Professional!


Super Nice!
They were able to see me on short notice, figured out why I was in pain & proceeded to fix it for me right then & there. And everyone was super nice!
