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.

I am honored to be a 2018 Best Dentist. I believe in “old-fashioned” values and building lasting relationships, while providing great dental care with a gentle touch. Our warm, friendly and compassionate environment means greeting patients “hello” with a smile. We respect your time and strive to see patients on time, all the time. A graduate of Marquette University School of Dentistry and the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies with 26 years of practice experience in Hawaii, I stay abreast of the latest dentistry changes with annual continuing education classes. At Island Dental Group, we go beyond just treating dental conditions to focus on overall health by getting to know each patient personally to address their concerns. Among our latest materials and technology offered are: one-day CEREC crowns; non-mercury tooth-colored fi llings, Nightlase non-invasive laser treatment for snoring; Lightwalker laser treatment for fillings and periodontal rehabilitation; digital x-rays; 3D ConeBeam technology for the most accurate dental images; and alternative treatments for sleep apnea. The greatest blessing in dentistry is not only the lives I’ve touched, but the lives that have touched me. Thanks to everyone who’s been a part of it all. Love, laugh and keep smiling!

Dr. Tamura is proud to have served patients from all over Hawaii for over 20 years. The Aiea office of Island Dental Group is conveniently located in Newtown Square on Kaahumanu St. in Aiea, and it has been there since May of 2003. Some of the memberships and recognitions of Dr. Tamura’s are:
