As a child growing up in Waipahu, Dr. Wilfred Miyasaki spent a lot of time at the dentist because he had so many cavities. But, he hated going to the dentist. That’s why as a child he knew that he wanted to become a dentist to make dental visits more pleasurable for others. For Dr. Miyasaki, it has always been about helping the patients. He challenges himself daily to further understand what his patients really want – their fears, their desires, their dreams about their teeth, and how all of it fits into their lives.
Dr. Wilfred especially loves when he is able to crack those difficult cases. The smiles, thank yous, cookies, and hugs that he receives from grateful patients is the most rewarding part of his job. Should he have a bad day, Dr. Miyasaki simply remembers all of his blessings, and the bad day goes away!
To ensure that his patients are receiving the best possible treatment, Dr. Miyasaki constantly furthers his knowledge about innovations in dentistry by annually attending 50-100 hours of continuing education classes through the Pankey Institute and the Las Vegas Institute of Cosmetic Dentistry, among other organizations. He does this to help make people’s lives and smiles the best they can be. That goal starts by providing you with individualized attention and care, so you’ll be proud to share your smile with Honolulu and the world.
Dr. Wilfred and his son are currently practicing together, but it is his dream to someday pass the practice entirely to Dr. David and then retire here in our beautiful state.
