Dr Lum is so amazing!! I’ve had so many bad dental experiences in my life and Dr Lum has been able to fix the work. I had an uneven bite from a crown that was too high, I had a broken crown from a previous dentist, etc. One time I needed an emergency root canal & he worked late just to take me. His professionalism & bedside manner is bar none! He’s so thorough I love him & his great staff!

Excellent service, excellent staff, always. I’ve been going to Dr. Lum for years (15+ yrs…I can’t remember exactly. It’s been so long). I’ve been to the Kahala location, then their old Pearl City location, then back to the Kahala location when I lived town, and now that we live on the west side, the newly renovated Pearl City location. Most of my family goes to them. The entire staff is pleasant. Russelle has magic hands. She is so gentle yet so effective at cleaning your teeth. Dr. Lum is great and the few times I’ve had his daughter Dr. Lum have been really good experiences

Dr Lum and his team are awsome! I have always hated the dentist untill i started going here. They make me feel so comfortable and ensure im ok through out my appointment since they know im always so anxious. Dr Lum pulled out my wisdoms , which i was petrified about, but it was so easy and the next day i was good as new! When i had an emergency due to a tooth ache they got me in within hours and was able to fix the problem right then. Tasi is a great help and always accommodating to my schedule when making apointments and follow ups. Highly reccomend them for your dental needs!

Both doctors and staff are awesome! I know exactly what to expect because I’m thoroughly informed of what will take place before, during and after each appointment! Doctors, hygienists, assistants and coordinators are totally in tune with one another and that is what makes my experience with them incredibly easy going! You can trust this intelligent and friendly team!

Speaking as a person who is terrified of the dentist. This entire office is top notch. The front desk people are all efficient and nice, taking care is the patients needs. Scheduling appointments is a breeze. The hygienist are amazing and Dr. Lum has handled all of my issues with caring and consideration of my fear. His work is so good even my mother was amazed. They saved my teeth. Mahalo but loa to them all. I completely recommend this office.

I’ve been going between the Pearl City & Kahala locations for 5-10 years now and I love seeing Russell & Dr.Lum. The staff here have always been so nice and helpful! I like the text messages to remind me about my appointment! Russell has been cleaning my teeth for many years and she’s always been so nice! She’s efficient and always communicates what she’s doing with me. She really cares about making me feel comfortable & doing a great job on my teeth!

I haven’t had dental insurance for quite some time when I was finally able to get coverage I got consultations from multiple dentist and they all said I needed multiple root canals and I new that wasn’t the case. It has taken me a while to find a dentist who I trust to give me the right information and wasn’t just trying to scam me out of my money. Turns out they are just cavities. I am beyond happy with the outcome of my different dental procedures they had done. I really appreciate that they treat you with kindness, and give you accurate information they are willing to work out a payment plan so that I can get my dental work done and be able to pay my other monthly bills. It is hard times we live in and it’s totally awesome that they were willing to work with me and my budget. All the office ladies are lovely and do there best to accommodate me when I need to reschedule my appointment. The dental assistant was very knowledgeable and informative when it came to addressing my dental plan and goals. Thank you all for everything. You have yourself a lifelong patient.

On Saturday morning, I cracked a tooth. Having not seen a dentist in over a decade, I had no idea what to do. My good friend Burt mentioned that his brother, Dayton, was a dentist, and with no more information than that, I called and asked for help. Even though the office was booking appointments for regular clients three months in advance, they made room for me on their Saturday schedule (they close at 1 p.m., so they asked me to come in at 12:30 p.m., less than two hours from my call). As office locations go, Oahu Dental Care is interestingly situated, tucked in the corner of a strip mall (“between American Savings Bank and Chuck E. Cheese’s in Pearl City” were the simple directions). I showed up, a complete stranger, completely at a loss as to what to do. Nonetheless, the staff was friendly and helpful and extraordinarily patient with my stupid questions. I didn’t know my insurance policy number, but they were able to look it up. I filled out some forms, and after a short wait, was led back to an exam room. Suffice it to say, I’m a lousy patient, and there’s a reason I’ve avoided the dentist for so long. I was nervous and jumpy and wasn’t doing the staff any favors. But Dayton was both professional and extremely diplomatic (which is to say, he didn’t say outright what a disaster my teeth were). He and his capable assistant Crystal assessed the situation and got to fixing it right away. And by fixing it, I mean shooting me up with painkillers, going at my tooth with a variety of drills and pointy metal things, and finishing up with cement and glue and duct tape (well, not really). Considering that I was planning only on relaxing at the water park with my family only two hours earlier, it’s notable that they were able to ease me into emergency dental work so smoothly. Frankly, I’m surprised I didn’t take off like a bat outta hell. They’re that good. Of course, now I’m hoping to become a regular, and will probably be waiting three months for a normal appointment for some long overdue dental work. But Dayton and his team made a great first impression under the worst of circumstances.

The whole staff was great. My teeth are busted up and causes me a lot of anxiety. Needless to say that I was very stressed about going to dentist and having to reveal the busted mouth that I have tried so hard to hide from everyone for a good while. The non judgemental and professional way I was treated was fantastic. They helped my stress level to drop a few meters by the way they treated me. The Doctor was also very good, knowledgeable, and has a great “bedside” manner. He was informative, answered all my questions and really made the whole experience worth it.

Dr Lum has been my dentist for 10 years. I would not change dentists and I have changed plenty! He has helped me get my teeth and gums in great shape, and I really needed help cosmetically and physically. He is patient, straight forward, light hearted, and he listens to my needs, wants and fears, then accommodates. I use to fear dentists horribly to the point of high anxiety. Not anymore! Thank you Dr Dayton Lum!

Nobody likes going to the dentist however it’s a must 2x a year for cleaning and check ups. Oral hygiene is very important. I’ve been going to Dr. Dayton Lum ever since he opened his practice 25+years ago. His office is central located in the Pearl City area with lots of free parking. He along with his entire staff are friendly and professional treating each individual with tlc.
