Lisa Whang Shirai, DDS

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.

In order to stay updated on the latest dental knowledge, I attend numerous accredited Continuing Education courses, read monthly dental journals, and watch online dental courses. I promise that you will receive the best care possible and that I will always strive to make every experience as good as it can be.

I live here in Hawaii with my husband, my son, and my daughter. Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my family and friends. I also do various volunteer projects around Oahu to give back to the community, such as dental health screenings and dental health presentations for those who are interested.
