So I’ve been seeing Dr. Masunaga for decades. What I like is his no nonsense approach to my dental care. You can take or leave his advice, but he will always help and monitor your oral health. He won’t make you feel ashamed if one needs tooth help. I want the least work done and I maintain my appointments so I can hopefully delay what might have to be inevitably done. He is friendly, to the point and seems to do procedures professionally quick. He also does teeth whitening and Botox injections.

Still a happy client! Dr.Masunaga & his staff are so amazing! My teeth are beautiful & white & every single time I’m there I feel like family! I’m always referring people with confidence, knowing they will leave having a great experience! Thank you to everyone for always making me SMILE 4 years and counting! They are the BEST! Update VENEERS YAY! Doctor Russell Masunaga has now been my dentist for almost 6 years! I’ve asked continually about getting veneers and he’s always said “Jen you don’t need them” yes I’m vain & just wanted them to have that Hollywood white smile! My teeth have always been straight and pretty white (his whitening treatment is amazing and doesn’t leave my teeth sensitive) however I still wanted them whiter. Unlike any other dentist who pressures people into spending money on unnecessary things he told me the truth and only after years of asking about them he finally said okay if that’s what you really want we’ll do it. He took multiple impressions of my teeth to ensure a comfortable fitting temporary while the veneers were being made in Las Vegas and today I received my dream smile! His office staff is SO caring and friendly! He took his time and I can tell he really wanted to do his BEST job, as always! My husband, son & daughters go to him and we all love him! He is truly the very best dentist I’ve ever went to! I’m a huge chicken when it comes to needles, but he uses techniques to reduce the pain and anxiety! He genuinely cares for his patients as well as doing volunteer programs for the less fortunate. He is an admirable, honorable, trustworthy person who I am SO thankful to have for my family’s dentist! Thank you to him and his amazing, professional & caring staff for always making me feel more like a valued friend not just another “client” and again I can’t thank him enough for my gorgeous celebrity smile!!! I will continue to send all my clients & friends to his office with confidence they too will be happy and blessed with such a dentist who has integrity, empathy & only uses the BEST equipment and laboratories! Mahaloz Update it’s been about 2 years I think since I had my veneers done and I must say, I still LOVE them! Super thankful for Dr. Masunaga and still sending friends his way! He’s the best!

This review is 5 months overdue, so finally here it is. I’ve had several other dentists over the years, along with many bad experiences. The last one performed an unnecessary root canal. I started going to Dr Masunaga about 15 years ago, after a couple of years of helping produce his radio show. I’ve have found him to be really on top of his game, knowing all the latest techniques, with very minimal pain, and time in the chair. This past 4th of July, (on a Friday) while moving into my new condo, I broke one of my front teeth completely off. I was freaked out to say the least, and figuring I’d have to wait until Monday before I would be able to see the Dr. I called the office line and left a message explaining my situation. To my complete surprise, Dr called me back in about an hour telling me that he didn’t want me to have to go through the weekend with a missing front tooth. He said he would call to see if he could get one of his dental assistants to come in, and that, regardless, he would meet me at his office at 2:30pm. I arrived at his office, and he was waiting for me, along with his assistant, who had left a family gathering to help out. He put in a post and reattached my broken tooth in short order. I was so happy for such unbelievable service! Now I ask you, how many dentists would drop everything on the 4th of July to help a patient?! A big mahalo to Dr Masunaga and staff!!

For Years my family and I have been to many, Pediatric dentist. It’s difficult to find the right Pediatric dentist for a family of seven. Dr. Matsunaga is by far the best, Pediatric dentist my family and I have going to for years now as a primary. His work is very professional like no other. Very comfortable, relaxing environment. Dr. Matsunaga has years of experience and his work shows satisfying results. His services, knowledge and advices guides, motivates, educate and encourages my family and I to have stronger and healthy mouth hygiene and teeth. If the President of the United States asked me who would I recommend as a Pediatric dentist here in the 808 state, I would definitely recommend, Dr. Russel Matsunaga. The Vele Ohana,

I’ve been going to Dr. Masunaga for the past 9-years and I must say he is THE BEST! In the past I have had horrible experiences with going to the dentist and feared just the thought of going in for cleaning! On my very first visit to Dr. Masunaga it was pleasant and soon the fears/jitters diminished each time I went in for cleaning or treatment. Although its a small office, the front desk staff, dental assistants and hygienist is always, always friendly, personable and professional. I don’t mind the drive to Kalihi from Pearl City, they have lots of free parking and hardly any traffic on a Saturday morning! If you’re looking for a good dentist, call them at 848-8880!

Dr. Russell Masunaga D.D.S. is the Man!! How do I judge a business you ask? Chef-Zilla sez, “In the words of Iron Chef Chairman Mark Dacascos.. The secret ingredient is..” ‘The Trickle Down Theory.’ What is that you ask? That is when the Head, Leader, Director or Owner of a business treats his next of command, that in turn treats their subordinates which translates to the inculcation and culture and attitude promoted within an organization that ends up as the way they treat their customers, clients or patients. I have been back home in the islands since 2006 and In my professional career know what I expect in a proper business model. Unequivocally Without A Doubt and Double Blindfolded I will always choose Dr. Russell Masunaga as “My Hawaii Dentist.” He is an exemplary Dentist with an exceptional staff, Allie Kady, Savannah, et al.

Dr Masunaga is the best dentist I’ve ever been to and that’s saying a lot because I normally hate going!!!… Dr. and his team are very professional and make sensible recommendations to help me make my “smile” the best it can be!!! He even rushed me in for an emergency root canal. Saved my life… Thank you Doc!

I would like to sincerely thank Dr. Masunaga and his staff for the wonderful dental care they are providing me, and my family. We switched from another dentist to Dr. Masunaga due to insurance reason, but we are definitely receiving better dental care. Yes I have only seen doc once, but I can honestly say he answered all my questions. He also eased my mind about what my previous dentist had told me. I now feel relieved that I don’t need a $1000 dental procedure. Everyone here shows outstanding customer service, and that is what makes this office a positive enviroment.


Dr. Masunaga is a graduate of Punahou HS, UCLA BA, and UCLA School of Dentistry. He has served as president of the Hawaii Dental Association, and is the founder, and past director of the Dental Samaritans, a non profit designed to serve Hawaii's underserved. As a successful Talk Show host of KHVH's "ToothTalk", he enjoys educating and speaking about dentistry to anyone who will listen.
