Glenda M. from Ewa Beach, HI (Source: Yelp)


To say “I’m terrified of dentists” is an understatement! I don’t usually like to see them! I had unpleasant experiences in the past! But not with Dr. Paul Ching. Let me start with his staff. They are all very polite, pleasant, respectful, and know their job so well. Then there comes the office it’s not cluttered and they respect your privacy. Then of course Dr. Paul Ching just the first site of him while I was still in the waiting room and he was in the staff’s area I already felt comfortable! My first impression was “I’ll be in good hands”. He just has this very reassuring face. I was actually embarrassed with how ugly my teeth were but he and his staff were not condescending! I had a very thorough examination and it was not painful the whole time! After that he explained to me what happened to my teeth. He spent a long time discussing my dental problems providing me with very good patient education! I learned a lot from him. He is very smart, professional, very knowledgeable but most of all he makes you feel at ease and makes your dental experience not too scary after all! Before I came to Dr. Ching my fear of dentists was more than 10/10 now it’s 0/10 for Dr. Ching! I will definitely recommend him to all of you especially those who had unpleasant experience with dentists in the past and who are looking for The Good ONE!  He is referring me to an Endodontist for a root canal. I asked him to just do it but he said I had to see this specialist so my fears are up there somewhere again but he reassured me with this specialist and told me if I have problems with this other one to tell him right away! I trust you Dr. Ching! Kudos to you and your staff! You are the best! Thanks a lot!

Dr Ching is the best dentist. I have been going to him for a few years now and wish I had found him sooner. He is personable, funny, informative and totally accommodating with his patients. My family goes to him and we all love him. He explains the procedures before he does them. He always says if there is an issue with your treatment please let him know. He will fix it for you. The office staff are all pleasant and warm also. During this Covid 19 pandemic he has followed the CDC guidelines and kept his staff and me the patient safe. If you are looking for a great dentist with perfect chair side manner, he is the one for you.

Dr. Paul Ching runs a great practice! He promotes preventative maintenance over procrastination with your pearly whites, and you will get the sense that he knows what he is doing. The dental hygienists and all the assistants are always genuinely kind and friendly to my ohana and I. We always have an extremely positive experience when we go there to get cleaning or services done. They have great operating hours and can even accommodate a Saturday appointment (however, I believe they are booked through April ’22 for Saturday appointments). They have validated parking and are conveniently located in Liliha, at the St. Francis Medical Center. Of course, as with everything else, COVID-19 has forced businesses to change their policies. I say this to inform you that you may have to take extra precautions to keep yourself and others safe (i.e. sanitizing hands, wearing face masks, arriving to the office by yourself, etc.). This office is amazing and you get treated as if you were part of their ohana. I recommend this place if you are looking for an awesome office to make your go-to for dental services.

Brittnay B. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Marie, Jamie & Dr Ching are such amazingly wonderful people. I honestly can’t say enough good words about them!!! Marie is extremely friendly, sweet, and does most of the front desk work. She’s the first and last person you speak to before you enter and leave the office. And let me tell you…She really knows how to send you off with good vibes. Also, I appreciate the fact that she sends out text confirmations/reminders about your appointments bc sometimes I can be so forgetful. Jamie is very energetic and pleasant! She was always very polite to me and on-it when Dr.Ching needed her to do something. Granted it’s her job, but she did it with such grace. I’ve had experiences before where the assistant was very much sassy and seemed to hate their duties, but Jamie was very easy to work with. Dr. Ching is a humorous, intelligent, and really delightful man. I’ve had horrible experiences with my previous dentist on Maui and I’ve never gone back since. After wanting to correct my teeth and check-up on my oral health (yeaaaaars later), I decided to get a consultation with an orthodontist before I saw Dr.Ching. I had told him about this and he immediately knew what to start doing as far as the steps to take before getting braces – cleaning treatments, checked to see if I had gum disease, and cavaties. What I admire most about him is the fact that he’s considerate of what Dr. Tan (Ortho) might be doing to my teeth in regards to braces. He didn’t want to pull teeth and make it hard for the ortho. So the fact that he’s working with her to figure out a plan on what he should do is HIGHLY admirable! Also, he was VERY upfront with me about everything and I appreciate that so much! He has given me wise advice and is full of common sense. Not to mention, he spoke in a way that I would understand. I didn’t feel flustered nor did I feel unsure/untrustworthy of him at all! To back himself up, he also has a screen with your x-rays etc., that you can look at. I felt like I was in school and learning new things. You know when a teacher is explaining step by step on a projector screen about something? That’s what it felt like when he explained everything to me. It was fascinating! The office is not too big and definitely not too small. They have lots of reading material if you need to kill time while you wait to be called in. They’re also not crowded, which is always a pleasure bc I’m not a fan of crowds. But that doesn’t mean that they don’t have patients, bc they definitely do. Cost: I am uninsured. Every payment comes out of my pocket. Their prices are fortunately and thankfully very affordable!! They give a 20% kamaaina discount and believe me, it makes a huge difference! For dental work in excess of $200, payment plans are optional but that’s only upon request. I’m not sure what sort of payment plans they have available, but just ask them (if it’s absolutely necessary & if it meets the requirements). My overall experience was one to remember. Marie was able to book me another appointment that worked with my schedule. She was also fast and efficient in assisting Dr.Ching with whatever info he needed from Dr.Tan (Ortho). They also made me feel extremely comfortable and less self conscious about my teeth. I walked out of those doors feeling hopeful and confident in myself and in them. Growing up, I was always told no Dentist could fix my teeth. Sadly I believed it too. But this amazing staff give me hope. –I’m super stoked and am looking forward to my dental cleaning this Wednesday!! I’ll continue to update my post as I do with any major/important procedure/work that I get done. But with that being said, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place to you! The minor details to the big picture, they leave no stone unturned. Plus, the urgency and care they have to cater to their patients is out of this world!! 200/10: I will be a forever-customer!

For some, coming to the dentist is scary but Dr. Ching and his staff make sure that your comfortable through out your entire visit. They are very welcoming and friendly. You even get to barrow some sunglasses while your getting your teeth cleaned so your eyes won’t hurt from the bright lights. Overall, I would recommend Dr. Ching to everyone. He is great with people and doesn’t disappoint when it comes to cleaning your teeth.

Aimee L. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ching and his staff is awesome!!! Always friendly and courteous. The ladies at the front desk are always welcoming with a smile. Dr. Ching and his staff take the time to discuss their concerns with your teeth. I like that he’s all in favor for prevention and makes sure that my teeth remains, “undestructable.” . Dr. Ching is very personable and caring! Totally recommend especially all you youngins coming out of seeing a pedodontist!

JC M. from Kahului, HI (Source: Yelp)


Going to the dentist is definitely not on my list of favorite things to do, but I will say that I don’t mind waking up at 8am Saturday morning to make my bi-annual dentist appointment.  Dr. Ching and his staff are friendly, caring and professional and the fact that I live on Maui and make the 20 min island hop to Oahu for my twice-a-year-cleaning and check up is precisely the reason why I confidently say they’re the only ones I trust to consistently give me the very best experience I could ask for.

Lauren Tancredi (Source: Google)


This was my first time here and Dr. Ching made me feel very comfortable and confident. He talked to me not only about fixing the issues I may have but also prevention which I really appreciated, it’s easy to put a band aid on a problem and never solve it but Dr. Ching was very informative about how to prevent and take care of my heath and well being . Everyone was very profession and knowledgeable I enjoyed my appointment very much

Nani H. from Pearl City, HI (Source: Yelp)


Love Dr Ching! I have had some horrible experiences here on Oahu with dental offices. I was referred to Dr Ching through my insurance company. I’m so happy because He is by far the best dentist I have ever gone to! He explains everything, he’s professional, updated technology, clean and most important efficient. I am always greeted by the receptionist and almost immediately called in by the Dr himself. The office was difficult to find but just ask the security guard by the entrance or the parking attendant.

K A. from Makiki, Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


My family and I have been seeing Dr. Ching for more than 20 years are he is the best dentist you could ever hope for.  He is always so very patient and kind with all of your concerns, and is also amazingly generous with his time if and when your dental needs get complicated.  His staff couldn’t be sweeter and when I got married almost four years ago I convinced my future husband to change over to Dr. Ching which he still agrees was a great decision.  Lastly, he takes care of my 90 year old Popo too (grandmother in Chinese) and we wouldn’t trust just anyone to treat her.  Thank you Dr. Ching, Marie and staff!  You guys are THE Best!!!

Miriam L. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


I couldn’t be happier. OFFICE: Very easy to find in the St. Francis Medical plaza, and ample parking make coming to the dentist a breeze, just take a ticket on the large parking garage and they validate. Clean, no weird smells, or cramped spaces. STAFF: All of the staff are friendly, knowledgeable,and helpful. They actually answer the phone A+++! MAKING AN APPOINTMENT: They have slots available, and when I needed to get in to get a previous dentist’s filling fixed, they got me an appointment in a timely manner. They actually ask you how you want to be contacted for reminders. I can rarely answer the phone and despise checking voicemail, so being able to get an email, or check my texts is a huge bonus. DENTIST: Professional, yet kind. From the very beginning he starts collecting data on your face and mouth to build a lasting patient/doctor relationship, he isn’t just herding people in and out and fleecing them for their cash. Explains everything up front, and works with what will work best for your mouth and your budget. Impeccable service. BILLING: Reasonable rates, knowledge about procedure costs, worked with me on fixing a filling. Most importantly him and the staff are able to tell you UP FRONT before the procedure so that you can know what you are getting into. No surprise “gotchas” lurking around the corner. so relieved to have found a dentist I can trust.

Mike Q. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Great dentist who is actually passionate about dentistry so you know your getting good work done.  He shared a study with me about which toothbrushes and toothpastes have negative impacts on teeth.  It was a good indicator that he thinks and works outside the box. I wish I could still go to him but I live on Maui now.

Dr. Paul Ching runs a great practice! He promotes preventative maintenance over procrastination with your pearly whites, and you will get the sense that he knows what he is doing. The dental hygienists and all the assistants are always genuinely kind and friendly to my ohana and I.

I am so glad that I found Dr. Ching. I hadn’t been to the dentist in a long time. Partly due to changing jobs and insurance and always forgetting to make an appointment. You always hear horror stories of a bad dentist experience so i wanted to make sure I found someone I could trust. My insurance recommended Dr Ching since he was in network. I went straight to Yelp to see the reviews and I was pleased to see so many positive experiences, and all the reviews were right! Dr. Ching and his staff have been so amazing. They are very thorough in their explanations. They did not make me feel bad for waiting so long since the last time I had seen a dentist. They took their time in evaluating the health of my teeth and gums to put a plan in place for me. The other thing that I was impressed with is Marie knowing that I would potentially had some issues, they worked me in a week sooner so that if I needed work done I had an appt on the books I could use. Also I had cracked off one of my fillings the day of my appt, so I was able to get that fixed right away. They did a great job cleaning my teeth. My mouth felt healthier right away. The next day I went back to fix my filling and I was shocked with how quick, easy, and painless it was. And Dr. Ching did a great job ensuring that it was shaped correctly so that my bite was in tact and the edges were smooth without me having to tell him! Also love that they validate parking completely bc I’ve been to other doctors and still was responsible for half the parking charges. All in all a fantastic dentist with an amazing staff! I’m already referring some of my coworkers to check them out!

I had an unfortunate circumstance of a crown falling out (it’s been about 18 years since it’s been placed in, probably just old). Due to a COVID-19, i had hard time getting an appointment with other dental professionals in the area. Dr Paul G Ching, DDS was my 3rd call. And I’m glad it was! My crown issue was examined, and Dr gave me all options for taking care of the issue. Staff at the office was super friendly. I’m definitely recommending highly!!

Leika C. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Everything about Dr. Ching’s office is the absolute best!!! My father was diagnosed with Cancer a few months ago and Dr. Ching has been so supportive from day one.  We needed clearance from him to start treatment and Dr. Ching was so knowledgeable and explained everything in a way we could understand.  My father and I both feel that Dr. Ching genuinely cares about his patients.  We are forever grateful for his compassion and his expertise!  Thank you Dr. Ching and staff for all your support!!!

Very detailed, very thorough, friendly staff, very informative.. I definitely recommend this office to anyone who asks.. I for one, left there knowing I had found the dentist that I will be seeing for years to come.. In fact, after the first visit, I already felt like I had been there for years.. Thank you Dr. Ching and full staff..

Nancy Short (Source: Google)


I live in Nuuanu and Dr Ching is very close to my house, since I don’t have a car I can walk to my appointments, so, I love the convenience of his office location. Dr Ching is very knowledgable and up-to-date with the techniques of dentistry. He has wonderful technology to help with the accuracy of his dentistry and to help make it painless. Dr Ching has an exceptional “bed-side manner” and makes me feel comfortable and at ease. Plus his staff are the best! I would absolutely recommend Dr Ching, he is the best!

Pua O. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


I have been looking for a good, long-term dentist since my childhood was horrible. After many years of avoiding the dentist, I tried another clinic last year before finding Dr. Ching. Staff was kind, location is convenient, Dr. Ching explains things very well and he didn’t try to force any procedures on me to make more money. I also appreciated that he didn’t make me feel bad when I shared that I don’t regularly floss (my childhood dentist was very condescending). I’m already looking forward to my next appointment and hope that I can continue coming to Dr. Ching for many years to come. Just FYI for new patients: GPS tells you to turn left into some random lane about a block before the entrance. You have to turn left into St. Francis Hospital and park in the structure. When you walk out of the parking structure, it’s the building on the right (main hospital on the left).

Christine M. from Mililani, HI (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ching is extremely knowledgeable and helpful with personalized recommendations for maintaining dental and oral health. He is our family dentist and I feel very lucky to have found such a gem.  The rest of the staff are great, very professional and personable and knowledgeable as well.  This practice offers a state of the art level of care, together with a down to earth, family friendly personality.

Christy L. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ching and his team are really incredible! I came here to get a second opinion on a cracked tooth, and Dr. Ching really listened to my concerns and gave me a lot of options and recommendations to choose from. I’ve never had a dentist that takes the time to explain what they’re looking at, and even teaches me a lot about dentistry. He is passionate about dentistry, continues to learn and read studies, which makes me feel like he’s giving me the best care (and he is). He made sure to check that I was comfortable, and I’ve never been so at ease with the kind of work that my teeth need (crown, cavities). The office and dental staff are all very friendly and helpful too. I highly recommend Dr. Ching!

Milton K. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


As always – great people, always smiling and full of goodness! Dr. Ching is THE ONLY Dentist I have ever LIKED! True professional and up-to-date, modernized dentistry! Staff is always SUPER – friendly, cheerful, knowledgeable! I am always WILLING to come back, unlike ANY dentist I have had before except my first pediatric dentist when I was born until 10! If you know anyone looking for a great MODERN Dentist who is friendly and knowledgeable, as well as the staff here, tell them this will be THE LAST dentist office they will EVER need!

Every time my son and I went for our semiannual check ups/cleaning, we were in and out quickly and never felt any pain. Today I had a cavity removed and a filling done, it was the best, least painful(no pain at all, actually) experience of my life. My son looked forward to going here every time, and we’re going to miss them when we have to switch dentists after our move. Thank you, Dr Ching and staff, for taking good care of us!

If you’re looking for a dentist, LOOK NO FURTHER. I’m the kind of person that’s always been terrified and traumatized by past dentist visits. Even going to the cleanings frighten me cause I don’t like the discomfort on my teeth. But Dr. Ching is informative, funny, and just generally cares. He can’t keep treating cavities without fixing the underlying cause which are my bad habits (I don’t floss everyday) so we’re working towards improving that. I’ve never felt the urge to take care of my teeth as good as I do now after seeing him. Past dentists just basically told me “You HAVE to floss so you don’t have to keep coming back- bye.” But Dr. Ching will sit down and talk to you. He’ll ask you questions that’ll help him better understand your situation, concerns, and habits. What I enjoy is that he gives you OPTIONS. He doesn’t tell you one way to do things and you have no choice but to do that. He’ll inform you of different routes you can take and it’s up to you how you wanna do it so you can find out what works best for you. I love that I get text reminders too cause I’m horrible at remembering. The whole staff is so kind and I get the feeling they generally love their jobs. They made me feel so comfortable in an environment of my worst nightmares. No forced kindness here that you get at other places. And I don’t feel as if I’m a burden for having fucked up teeth. Past dentists seemed very tired of seeing me all the time they looked genuinely tired and stressed when I walked in LOL. Other patients also seemed to enjoy their time there too. I also love that they give you the break down of the expenses beforehand. I have a print out of how much my insurance covers and what I’ll be paying out of pocket after all my visits. Their technology also seems very advanced too. Which I like. Better technology, better service, less discomfort. Today was my first visit/cleaning. I left feeling great (which I never do after leaving the dentist). I didn’t have that left over gross taste in my mouth with the left over crunchiness that I always felt at other dentists. The nurse cleaning my teeth was very prompt. She didn’t let me drown in my saliva like other places do. My appointment was at 11:40 but I got there a little earlier so they took me in sooner (I didn’t even sit down in my chair yet). OH. And I liked that he gave me the option of opting out from using the safety glasses. I have eyelash extensions and he told me I didn’t have to use the glasses in case it messes my lashes up. Other places will just throw em on you without even asking. So I liked that he took my lashes into consideration- I ended up choosing to wearing em. Safety first before beauty. I have no complaints. And I’m surprisingly looking forward to my next visit. You’d be missing out if you passed up on Dr. Ching. I promise you that.

Dr. Ching has been my Dentist since I first started getting my teeth cleaned! He is awesome and his staff is awesome as well. I have never even considered going anywhere else. The team he has is super nice and they do a really good job cleaning my teeth. I actually look forward to getting my teeth cleaned every 6 months lol.

Ranee Y. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


My old dentist retired and I needed to find a dentist for a tooth ache. I was referred by a close friend of mind, and Dr. Ching is by far the best dentist I ever had. He is the only dentist that is extremely thorough in his exams and took the time to explain to me about my teeth and gums. His technique when he was giving me an injection, was pain free. I couldn’t  feel the needle penetrating, and the filling that he did not give me any problems…His office is up to date with technology, no more of that cardboard like X-rays that use to dig into my mouth, which I always use to dread having yearly, it’s all digital X-rays, hallelujah to that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Staff is always friendly and accommodating, Marie the office manager and Neelam front office personnel, along with his staff are so friendly and accommodating. My teeth cleanings doesn’t feel like my gums have been butchered. I’m so glad that my friend referred me to him. He really is the best and I feel safe knowing that I’m in the best care!
