The Golden Rule is great...but the Platinum Rule is better. 

When you know and apply the Platinum Rule...that's when you found your superpower...

...and that's what makes our team great.  

And now I will share Ala Moana Dentistry's superpower...THE PLATINUM RULE.

 "treat others the way they want to be treated."



Although more challenging, THE PLATINUM RULE proves to be a more rewarding philosophy for us and our patients.  Ala Moana Dentistry`s mission is to UNDERSTAND our patients while providing them with the highest quality dental care at affordable prices.

THE BEST PART IS...we encourage our patients to participate in making all decisions.  

We are a conservative dental practice devoted to total care that focuses on proper function while addressing your cosmetic dental concerns.  We pride ourselves on long lasting results and long lasting relationships. We will strive to apply the Platinum Rule and offer solutions that meet your needs in a caring environment. 


We Pay It Forward....

Ala Moana Dentistry offers a loyalty program because our patients are terrific people!  It's people like you that make it fun to come to work every day, and we consider ourselves extremely fortunate. We would love to take care of more people like our patients. Refer friends, colleagues or family members and our office will give your a $20 VISA gift card and a $20 credit to your referral's account. This is one way we can show appreciation for your trust.

We even offer a promise & guarantee.

We promise you will be treated with respect or your treatment will be free.

For most people this seals their decision to make an appointment with our office. Knowing that our dentists care is a huge comfort.

That means our relationship does not end when treatment is finished...

You can call, email or come in if you have any questions with the dental work performed in our office.

We can offer this promise because we are sensitive to every patients situation and we are confident in the high quality work our office produces.

Ala Moana Dentistry cares that you are satisfied! 


People who get great results find a dentist that has high standards?



Many patients do not know what level of care they should expect from their dentist.

AT ALA MOANA DENTISTRY we hold ourselves to the highest standard of care! We use the finest materials, modern equipment, high quality dental labs, and treatment planning that provides patients with excellent options.  

PROS and CONS...every treatment option has them...However, once educated, we encourage our patients to draw their own conclusions as to the best treatment for them.  

THE BEST PART IS...Without compromising care, we always maximize the use of our patient's dental plan or dental insurance.   

 Does Education and Experience Matter?


 But you're probably wondering:

"How can I evaluate the doctor's education or experience?"

Our doctors graduate from ADA accredited institutions and are licensed to practice in the United States.  Our doctors have years of experienced and have seen complicated cases. For most procedure we can show before and after pictures so our patients know what results that can expect. Also, our doctors take the time to answer your questions!  One-of-our main goals is to have educated patients. When patients are educated they become empowered and have sense of control over their treatment. 



 You Are Safe At Our Office!



 YOU MAY BE WONDERING... "How is my personal information protected?"

In our office you will be treated like family!  In most cases we know our patients by their first name.  Our office takes the time to answer all your questions, work with your dental plan or dental insurance, and recommend an appropriate treatment. 

The longer you are a patient...the better we can get to know you...the better we can assist you. 

While all dentists graduate from dental school, not all dentists have top-notch skill or deliver personalized, sensitive and gentle care.  At Ala Moana Dentistry, we provide both: exceptional skill and gentle care. 

The best part is...we will earn your trust, not just  by our words but, through our actions.


Our office is ready to service the people in the Ala Moana, Waikiki, Diamond Head, Downtown, Kahala, Kakaako, Kaimuki, Makiki, Kapahulu and surrounding neighborhoods. We ensure your dental visits will be convenient, comfortable and easily integrated into your busy lifestyle.


As dental professionals it is our priority to provide quality dental care you can trust.


At first I wasn’t even concerned in straightening my teeth, however my American husband had partly forced me into doing it. The only time I had to take if off was when I had to eat, and everything else was still the same. No one had noticed it because it is transparent. My teeth got straightened before I even knew. When I compare the photos I took when I first started invisalign to today, there is a huge difference. As a result, I am very happy with the outcome and it certainly was worth the money!

This dental office was clean and everything was modern and brand new! They even had ipads in the reception area. I was greeting nicely and seen on time. The doctor was kind, gentle and informative. They took me into their conference room and did a good job explaining my insurance and divided my treatment into 2 phases so I could spread it over 2 years and use my insurance to pay for most of it. They even validated my parking. This was the best dentist I ever had.

Jason Kobashigawa 05/2011

I recommend this doctor to anyone. I even talk to people at work about Dr. Watanabe. I love the way she interacts with her patients. She's very professional and personable. Also, she takes her time asking questions and answering questions. She is such a wonderful person overall. The office alone is stunning with ipads in the waiting area and the staff are just so friendly and very ALOHA! They're just fabulous... she's so cute too-my Dentist. :)

I have been to quite a few dentist offices and Ala Moana Dentistry is the best. Stacy is an asset to your business and makes me very comfortable in the chair. Stacy always makes my trip there great because she is very personable and makes me feel very comfortable. Stacy makes me feel welcomed and assured that I am getting great care because she is very confidant and really seems to know her stuff. Dr. Watanabe makes me feel like I am getting superior care and it shows in my teeth and gums. Thanks so much!!
