Candace Wada, D.D.S.

October, 2014

10-14-Oct-Candace-Wada-01Born in Hilo, Dr. Candace Wada has been perfecting smiles for over 31 years. Her gentle and effective approach to dentistry focuses on total dental health instead of just disease care. Focusing on everything from preventive cleaning to teeth restoration with implants and cosmetic procedures, this bustling practice keeps busy with a long list of happy patients.

“We are very engaged with our patients,” says Dr. Wada. “Maybe it’s because I’m such a people person, but one of the most rewarding parts about being a dentist is seeing your patients at all levels of life. We are privileged to really get to know our patients and their families from the time they are little, watching them grow up, start their own families, and bring their own children in and seeing all of the generations: grandparents, parents, and children.  As one of their healthcare providers, you really do become a little slice of their lives.”

Dr. Wada’s own childhood dentist—the only woman in her graduating class at dental school—largely influenced Dr. Wada’s decision to join the dental profession. “When you become a health care practitioner, you really have to devote your life to it,” she says. That message, in part, is what drives her involvement across various leadership positions that include mentoring youth about the wonderful opportunities in dentistry and impressing on them how much she enjoys her life’s work.
