Dentistry with a woman's touch: gentle and confident

Dr. Lisa Whang Shirai

Dr. Lisa Whang Shirai I was born in Taiwan and raised on Guam. I am fluent in Mandarin, Taiwanese, and English. I am a graduate of University of Hawaii-at Manoa in 2001 with a Bachelor's degree in Biology and a Master's degree in Physiology in 2003. After college, I attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry and received a DDS degree in 2007. In order to care for my patients at a higher level that they deserve, I did a two year General Practice Residency at Truman Medical Center-Lakewood in Missouri and received a residency certificate in 2009. At the Medical Center, I have trained under many dental specialists. I have been practicing dentistry for over 10 years and I continue to attend numerous accredited Continuing Education courses to obtain updated dental knowledge. I promise that you will receive the best care possible and will always strive to make every experience as good as it can be. I live here in Hawaii with my husband, my 4 year old son, and my 2 year old daughter. Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my family and friends.

Dr. Leialoha Leung:

I am a native of San Francisco, California, a 1977 graduate of the University of California, Berkeley and a 1982 graduate of the University of California, San Francisco, School of Dentistry. My 33 years in practice have given me extensive experience and I have honed these skills to focus on comprehensive and preventive dentistry with an emphasis on least invasive restorative and esthetic techniques. I have participated in extensive post-graduate education, including special training in esthetic, full mouth reconstruction through the Frank Spear Institute, occlusion training through Pete Dawson, implant and laser dentistry. I continue to update and further my knowledge with continuing education, especially in the field of clear aligner therapy. We truly want to serve those who appreciate our experienced level of care, skill and judgment. Besides the excellent care you will receive, I promise that I will always give you an honest assessment of the condition of your mouth as if you were a member of my family. You will never be pressured into receiving any treatment that you don't want.

About Dr. Leung:

Dr. Leung was given the name Leialoha when she moved to Hawaii 10 years ago by her slack key guitar playing husband. Her ancestors are from Hawaii, so like local style, she is part Chinese, Portuguese and Hawaiian. Since moving here with her now adult son and daughter, she has taken up ukulele, hula and now ballroom dancing, loves Hawaiian music and the culture, the beauty of the islands and the tropical weather.
