How Technology Improves Your Dental Experience

Intra-Oral Camera Makes You a Part of the Team

Dr. Ha believes in a team approach to dental care. One of the ways he accomplishes this is through the use of a high-tech intra-oral camera. This remarkable technology is a miniature video camera that presents a close-up picture of the inside of your mouth. Now you can see what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing fine, making you an active participant in each dental decision. You’ll love how this works!

Three-Dimensional Dentistry

3-D cone beam CT digital imaging technology is one of the latest advances in dentistry. We are excited to soon be one of the first practices in our area to provide this service. Think of this as a three-dimensional X-ray that is FAR more accurate than traditional X-ray equipment, taking much less time and doing it with far less radiation exposure. Ultra cone beam images present an outstanding advantage when diagnosing patients and evaluating treatment options. Dr. Ha’s ability to clearly see a patient’s anatomy in 3-D, as opposed to flat, two-dimensional images, will lead to much greater accuracy for all dental treatment but especially implant placement and any oral surgeries.

Isolite™ – An Advance in Patient Comfort

Isolite is a “brilliant” new technology that makes your dental care much more agreeable. A combination light and suction device, Isolite illuminates the oral cavity, eliminating shadows while also removing excess moisture and debris. What does this mean for you?

You'll spend about a third less time in the chair.
You won't get that "drowning or gagging" feeling because an abundance of saliva.
Debris won't be swallowed, because the mouth is continuously being "vacuumed."
Your mouth won't get as tired because it's being held open for you.
The advanced illumination helps the doctor be more accurate.

Modern dentistry requires a dry “field” for best results. The Isolite keeps your teeth and gums dry and often removes the need for a bulky rubber dam during procedures.

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry at Honolulu Smile Designs employs focused light beams for precise and painless procedures. It minimizes discomfort, reduces healing time, and is used for treatments like gum disease therapy, cavity detection, and teeth whitening.

Our clinic uses digital impressions, eliminating messy molds. A 3D scan captures accurate tooth and gum images, aiding in creating custom restorations, aligners, and implants for a quicker, comfortable, and precise treatment process.

With our CEREC technology, damaged teeth can be restored in a single visit. Using 3D scans, we craft natural-looking crowns on-site, saving you time and providing durable, perfectly fitted solutions.

Our 3D Cone Beam Imaging system offers detailed views of your oral structures. This aids in precise implant planning, diagnosing complex cases, and delivering optimal treatment strategies for a safer and more efficient experience.

Air abrasion is a gentle alternative to traditional drilling. It uses compressed air and fine particles to remove decay without the heat, vibration, or noise of drills, preserving more of your natural tooth structure and reducing anxiety.

75% Reduction in Radiation

Digital X-rays use 75% less radiation than conventional X-rays. Using a digital sensor, an image is taken of your mouth and downloaded into our computer, where it is instantly available. No more waiting for images to develop and no more chemical waste to pollute the environment.

Additionally, digital X-rays eliminate the need for chemical processing, which is required in traditional film-based X-rays. This means no more hazardous chemicals or waste that can harm the environment. By adopting digital X-rays, we are taking an eco-friendly approach and reducing our carbon footprint.

Our Patient Say the Nicest Things

Here’s what our happy patients say about us.


I have been a patient of Dr. John HA for couple years now, and undergoing dental treatment in the pass has always been a unpleasant experience for me. This is mainly because I have often found myself on the receiving end of doctors’ conversations, where they would inform me that I need surgery to fix my teeth, but in a way that made me feel belittled and ashamed. However, after finally deciding to get dental implants, I chose to go with Dr. HA after reading positive reviews. I approached this decision with the mindset that if I felt judged or criticized about the condition of my teeth, I would seek treatment elsewhere. From my very first consultation to the permanent implantation of my implants, Dr. HA and his staff have truly made this surgery the best decision of my life. For nearly two years, I have been traveling from the Big Island to Oahu to receive my treatments. I understood that if I wanted to regain a sense of normalcy, and be able to eat and smile confidently, I had to trust that the staff would make the right decisions and guide me in the correct direction, as I had no knowledge of the process. The front office staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating, always being flexible with scheduling and accommodating my family when necessary. The dental assistants made me feel like a friend rather than just a customer, and Dr. HA himself took the time to explain the entire operation process from start to finish. He also discussed additional measures to ensure that I felt confident in achieving the results I desired. I cannot express enough gratitude to Dr. HA and his staff for their invaluable assistance throughout my procedures. Best dental establishment hands down!!.
Dr John Ha and his team were amazing. I’m from California and had a dental emergency in Waikiki. I contacted his office and they made time to see me. I only spent an hour and a half there and they did amazing. Allowed me to continue with my vacation with some peace of mind. Thank you so much.
Staff are always very friendly and dependable in their healthcare. Top of the line equipment and they know what they’re talking about.
From stepping into the office, it and the staff were very welcoming. Had an 11am appointment and there was no waiting. At 11, they were calling me in. Karen was very nice and professional taking pictures. During the exam, I suddenly felt very “out of sorts” and had to leave to get some air. Shawn came out to make sure I was OK and was very caring and we appreciated her kindness and understanding. Mahalo HSD!
There is no better dentist. I have never been to this location, but saw him at a previous practice. Dr. Ha is the perfect dentist. I had severe dental anxiety which caused me to neglect my teeth health, needed a root canal. He made me stop hating the dentist. He is caring, funny, has amazing banter and is just genuinely an awesome dude. Since he moved practices I’ve had no one that can possibly compare to him. Do yourself a favor and choose him for your dental care. I wish I still could.
We are a dental technology and continuing education provider for dental professionals on a global level. We have worked with over 15,000 dentists over the last 2 decades and intimately know the level of care Dr. Ha provides for his patients. He makes no compromises in delivering dentistry at the highest level possible. We had the privilege of hosting him at a recent event with dental professionals where he shared his vast knowledge and expertise with fellow like minded dental professionals. Everyone was thoroughly impressed with the amount of detail he pays attention to with every single patient. We can’t recommend him highly enough for your dental care.
