Dr. Claude N Tamura

Dr. Claude N Tamura was born in Hawaii and grew up in Pearl City. He is a true “Local Boy” who believes in the Aloha spirit, ohana (family), and the golden rule. This “Local Boy” graduated from Mid-Pacific Institute, then the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Dr. Tamura received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Marquette University School of Dentistry in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1992. He is also a graduate of Las Vegas Institute for Advance Dental Studies (LVI).

Dr. Tamura enrolls in continuing educations courses like cosmetic dentistry, implant dentistry, TMJ disorders, and all other phases of general dentistry when time permits. He is always striving to improve in all aspects of dentistry, which includes the materials he uses, techniques, and technology.

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Tamura enjoys sharing a good laugh and many smiles with his ohana. He is an avid outdoorsman, which includes hunting, spear fishing, free diving, and exploring the neighbor islands. One of Dr. Tamura’s favorite passions is to explore Oahu with his son & companion, Roscoe (pet dog), looking for that “One” great food joint to eat at. “It’s hard to beat a great steak, but I’m willing to try”. Dr. Tamura also creates culinary delights from the kitchen or on the grill.
