Dr. Sherri Chong

After many years in Seattle and Arizona, I came back home in 2014. I love Hawaii and feel grateful to care for the people in my community..

As an Orthodontist, I love seeing the transformation of one’s smile, function, and confidence. I recall a patient who always wanted to straighten her teeth but could not afford it. Her crooked teeth prevented her from being able to eat comfortably, because the top and bottom teeth did not touch when she chewed. On the day her treatment was finished, she told me I had changed her life and felt so overjoyed.  <and could eat her favorite food? or what was the first thing she wanted to eat?

When not in the office, I enjoy trying new recipes and eating – I love Hawaiian food, sushi as well as Italian and Peruvian cuisine. I also stay active by running and attending fitness classes.

Adam is the best dental hygienist at this business….look at his other reviews here on Google for more evidence. ALSO: Choose small location at Waikai Villas. Private rooms with view of Jungle verse the non-private, open/concept, and very loud location at mall.

Dr. Spivek is an amazing dentist. He located a cracked tooth and a source of an infection that most likely caused frequent headaches and discomfort for a couple of years. He did his due diligence in attempt to save the tooth without guarantees a new crown would save it. At the end of the day, his recommendation to pull it was in my best interest.It saddens me to hear Dr. Spivek is leaving Hawaii Family Dental. No matter where he goes, I know he will continue to bestow genuine kindness and put the needs of his patients first. He is a big loss to Hawaii Family Dental because when there were no other dentists at the Hilo location, he saw every patient with kindness and courtesy.

UPDATE: new hygienist, Adam, is amazing. Friendly, funny and gave me great tips on keeping my teeth healthy! Reach with that brush to target my tarter prone read. My new dentist Alex is also a joy. Always great going to the dentist when they are friendly and care about your teeth and health, and not about the $$$. I recommend this place to everyone especially those who have had bad experiences with others!!! Mahalo Adam, Alex and the rest of the crew! I’m a patient for LIFE!!! 💞💞💞been going to Hawaii Family Dental since 2017. Hadn’t gone for YEARS due to horrid experiences as a child/teenager with other dentists. Started going to Hawaii Family Dental because my mother had a dental emergency and her co-worker recommended them. They’ve been my go to ever since! They were welcoming from the get go! Recently got all 4 wisdoms pulled by Dr. Edgar. Both he and assistant Al put me at ease the entire time. They could tell I was nervous and scared and when it was all done, I felt silly for dreading it so! Immediately texted my girlfriend in the same situation and told her to call them and see if they can take her as a new patient and schedule her extraction! I’m looking forward to my next cleaning with Hygienist Shontell! Only had her once and after that session, she my girl! They are all the epitome of ALOHA! Shout out to Dr. Meyer! She my girl too! They are all awesome 🤗. Never fear when you are in the hands of Hawaii Family Dental!!! 💞💞 #LovingMySmile !!!

Doctor Spivek is the best dentist I have seen in 40 years. He did a bite adjustment that transformed my mouth from what I thought was just normal pain I had to live with and now I have no mouth pain at all. He is truly amazing, caring and does an excellent job that really no one else ever did. I have never met a dentist that cares this much. We are truly blessed that he is in Hilo. If I could give a million stars I would. Hands down best dentist ever. Thank you so much.

I’ve been going to this branch of Hawaii Family Dental since 2016 when I returned from Thailand with many new crowns and have consistently been pleased with their work. And again this month I was given some superior service by their Hygenist Adam Zahn. I was somehow so anxious about a deep gum cleaning that I called ahead to ask if a dentist was in the office on a Saturday and even considered canceling. The receptionist said to me, “Have you met Adam yet? He has a great personality and you will be fine.” So I showed up and so glad I did because he was so gentle and accommodating and truly almost pain free. And during those 2 appointments he explained to me just how important this treatment is for my gums at this point and I was able to embrace what I had feared. And truly after the first treatment, that side of my mouth began to heal. Thank you Hawaii Family Dental and Adam Zahn.

Dr. Spivak is a gentle, thorough doctor that takes time to explain the procedures and checks in on his patients throughout the appointment. I highly recommend him.
