Doctor Chad Kawashima was born and raised on Oahu. He received his dental education in San Francisco at the University of the Pacific, one of the leading dental schools in the country for clinical dentists. From an early age he knew he wanted to become a dentist. Having had extensive treatment at the orthodontist most of his life he became comfortable in the dental office and knew that it was the perfect field of medicine for him. Wanting to take care of others while working artistically with his hands, was his reasons for entering the field of dentistry. 17 years later and his passion for all things dental has only grown by leaps and bounds.
He is a current member of the Honolulu County Dental Society, Hawaii Dental Association, American Dental Association, Oahu Professional Dental Society, Tau Kappa Omega Dental Honor Society and American Society of Implant and Reconstructive Dentistry.
His passions outside of the office are spending time with his family, photography, hiking and volleyball (although that has taken a back seat recently due to family obligations.)
