David K. Hiranaka
Safety and customer service are the mantra at Dr. David Hiranaka’s maxillofacial, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery practice. Based in Kailua-Kona, the Harvard-trained dentist, physician and surgeon has been serving the Big Island Community for more than 27 years, providing services to those suffering from missing teeth, infections or tumors in the face or jaw, or an aesthetic flaw.
He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard School of Dental Medicine and obtained his M.D. from Harvard Medical School, followed by a five-year internship residency in General Surgery and Oral/Maxillofacial Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital and concluding with a fellowship in aesthetic facial plastic surgery at the Institute of Facial Surgery in Salt Lake City.
“Helping our patients improve their lives by maximizing their facial or jaw needs is the most rewarding part of what we do,” says Dr. Hiranaka, who says oral and maxillofacial surgery can lead to life-changing improvements in patients’ lives by restoring form and function to the face and jaw areas. He stays up to date with technologic advances and incorporates minimally invasive techniques in implant dentistry and associated jaw reconstruction to create a patient experience that goes above and beyond their expectations.
Certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Hiranaka offers oral and maxillofacial services, full-scope facial cosmetic surgery and skin care procedures, using advanced technologies such as Cone Beam CT navigated dental implant surgery, endoscopic facial surgery and various treatments for facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Hiranaka’s practice has maintained Joint Commission Accreditation for the past 12 years and earned recognition as a Center of Excellence for all-on-4 dental implants. During this pandemic he has served on the Board of Directors at Kona Community Hospital as a volunteer. Dr. Hiranaka is currently the director of a locally based, nationally recognized continuing education club for dentists in his community.
