Dr. David Ching’s practice vision reflects his passion to provide the highest quality dental care to the children of Hawai‘i in a safe, friendly and comfortable environment. From a keiki’s first dental visit at age 1 to their subsequent preventive care visits, Dr. Dave is constantly exploring ways to help them feel relaxed and have a positive experience at the dentist. Dr. Dave knows that when a keiki enjoys their childhood dental visits and learns to take care of their teeth early on, it sets the stage for lifelong good dental habits and beautiful smiles. Dr. Dave has earned multiple accolades, including being listed as one of HONOLULU’s Best Dentists (2014, 2015, 2016, & 2017) and as Honolulu Star-Advertiser Best Dentist (2015, 2016).
Dr. Dave is proud to be a Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. As a graduate of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, he has a solid foundation in general dentistry and subsequently completed his pediatric dental specialty training at the same institution, giving him a wide breadth of knowledge in providing comprehensive dental services for the well-child and the special needs child alike.
Dr. Dave’s practice continues to grow each year. Along with the addition of a brand-new wing, he is also thrilled to welcome pediatric dentist, Dr. Tian He, DMD, as she joins Dr. Lauren Young, DDS and himself. Dr. Tian brings with her experience and skill that raise the bar on dental care for his keiki patients. “Our focus is on preventive care and we continually update our treatments, techniques and equipment to better serve our patients,” says Dr. Dave, whose services include painless injections using Dental Vibe technology. He performed research on the efficacy of Dental Vibe during his post-graduate residency tenure, and the results were published. He is now Dental Vibe’s national representative in the capacity of clinical education specialist.
Getting great social media feedback, providing iPads as in-office entertainment for the kids, and researching the latest dental advancements are reasons why Dr. Dave is at the forefront of wonderful dental experiences for Hawai‘i’s keiki and their families.
