Dental Implants
As Low as $97/mo.

Because implanted teeth are fixed in the mouth—rather than being removable, like dentures—they allow a return to much of the comfort & function of natural teeth. Increased chewing ability means you can enjoy more nutritious foods, contributing to your overall health & well being.

I would definitely recommend this office. They also were able to get us in very quickly—even the same day, but declined & went later."


"Everyone was very professional."


"I've been waiting to find a dentist like Dr. Woo since I was 18. I'm 39 now. He was amazing. Always checked if I was ok & let me know what he was doing & what I would feel while he was doing it. I am sold as a return patient."


"I love that they can tell me how much after my insurance it will be & won't do the work if I can't afford it. Plus the availability for the hours."


"Dental Care of Pearlridge treats you like ohana. I highly recommend them. They always let you know the procedure before they take action. They got excellent treatment plans.

"Dr. Lee is great."


"The dentists there are great!"


"Nice friendly people that help you through your care."


"First-time visit very friendly staff."


"Great staff!!!!"


"Friendly, efficient staff! Quality work!"


"Like the fact that I go every 3months for a checkup to keep my gums & teeth in check especially with my hx of diabetes. I want to keep my teeth & gums healthy."


"The most important thing to me is customer service. EVERYONE that we interacted with was really friendly & very professional. We also liked how clean & modern everything was in there. No more filling out papers & using tablets was really cool. It might be difficult for the elderly for obvious reasons but I think the staff here are patient & helpful & I'm assuming they will help them. Thanks."


"Friendly & cordial staff & most of the Doctors try to save the tooth instead of extracting it. I'm of the elderly generation who believes repairing & saving a natural tooth is better than replacement."


"They are very accommodating. Very easy to make an appointment most convenient for me. Everyone is friendly. The wait time is short. Dr. Woo gets the job done gently & quickly."


"I always tell people about how awesome the service & care. Today was just as excellent as always is."
