Dr. Alex Spivak

I grew up watching my grandfather, a physician,  improve patients’ lives his entire life. It inspired me to become a dentist – I can make immediate improvements in a person’s oral health and help maintain their quality of life. My wife, a physician in Waimea, and I are grateful to give back to the communities we love.

As a dentist, I have had countless memorable experiences. Restoring smiles and seeing a patient smile for the first time in years is gratifying. Equally gratifying is helping a patient overcome their dental anxiety by completing a pain-free appointment.

I have also served as chief resident for one of the nation’s most accomplished dental programs. I received awards in Prosthodontics and Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and fellowships with the International Congress of Oral Implantology and Academy of General Dentistry, the latter of which is only awarded to 7% of dentists nationwide.

When I’m not caring for patients, you might catch me at one of our local surf breaks. I also love to dive, spearfish, and garden.

One of the most pleasant dental experiences yesterday, from Shontell to Doctor Meyer to Priscilla, their attention to detail and 'chair side manner' was notable and, dare I say enjoyable!March 10 visit, was short and efficient!

I considered a 3-star review but there were some very positive parts of the experience. I was scheduled for a routine exam/x-rays and teeth cleaning. Prior to my appointment, I was sent more than a dozen reminders, via email, text, and phone call. So many reminders! When I arrived, I... read more

Dr. Maricris Meyer is the best dentist I've ever had! She's extremely competent! She did 4 fillings for me in one appointment, in 1 hr. Hawaii Family Dental Center is the best dental clinic in Hilo! Love, Pearl S. Kadota!

We went to this office and we both were very impressed with the friendly staff. Dr Spivack is a great, caring dentist, and the hygienist, Anthony, was very thorough. We hope that our insurance continues to include this office, as we would be very sad to change.
