Dr. Christopher Wu
Dr. Christopher Wu dreamt of working in health care since he was a child. He believed that a profession in the health field would be a great way to contribute to Hawaii’s community. Dr. Wu chose dentistry because he enjoys working with his hands and being able to make a direct impact on his patients’ lives.
After graduating from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, he returned home for a general practice residency at Queen’s Medical Center. There, he treated patients with a variety of conditions from sever toothaches to traumatic injuries. His experience at Queen’s furthered his desire to help more people through dentistry.
Dr. Wu believes that taking care of one’s oral health will contribute to an overall healthy body and applies this philosophy to his own life. When he isn’t working, he is outdoors either fishing or golfing.
I am a longtime patient at HFD Mililani, but after a not-so-great appointment with one of their dentists, I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Wu at the Kapolei office as I still needed to finish my dental treatment. He was nothing short of amazing. He was kind, careful, and most important, he made me feel at ease every step of the way. It was a far cry from the "other" dentist who said that I "needed laughing gas" because I had to let him know that I was still feeling pain after receiving the anesthesia. If I ever need work done again, I'll be sure to see Dr. Wu. He is awesome!
This is a statement of my experience with my appointment at Hawaii Family Dental on July 30, 2020, I was greeted with a smile as i entered the doors. my temperature was taken and not long after I was taken into the examining room with Dr. Wu and his assistant. He was very caring when doing the exam. I would return to him for dental services and recommend him to anyone. I then had my cleaning done by Ms. Loraine. I was in such good hands with her. she took really good care of me explaining to me all that she was doing step by step. all the while providing care! Last but not least thank you to the staff and management team for making me feel comfortable as possible ! Mahalo Nui Loa!
i came into the Hawaii Family Dental Center in Hilo recently b/c i changed to an HMO insurance, and this was my only choice. the dentists are great, i really like them. i had to have major work done immediately on 3 teeth. they got me in pretty quickly, considering it was the holidays. the staff is excellent, all are very gentle and considerate of my needs, respectful of my wishes. the dentists are very attentive, even after the work (have had a running email convo w the oral surgeon after a root canal and an extraction). i had to go back 2x for followups that were due to pain, so they fit me in, and i never, ever have waited more that 5-10 min to get into a chair. the dentist shows up within a few minutes. very different than the other dental services i used on the big island, where the wait can be typically 20 min -45 min.the only reason i gave 4 stars instead of 5 is b/c for 1 week they had only 1 dentist to take care of everybody. and really, i blame the health insurance for only having 1 place in hilo that all the hmo patients can go.2nd review: i went from 4 to 5 stars, cuz i am so pleased with this dental practice. i went back to get prepped for a crown yesterday, 1 1/2 hours being worked on, and i have never felt this relaxed in a dentist's chair in my 63 yrs of life. i used to think i had a true phobia, would feel completely nerve-wracked and would put off going to the dentist for 2-3 years. (i do not recommend it, probably why i have so much i need now). that is all gone. i actually look forward to my visits, and, once again, was not kept waiting at all, even tho i arrived early. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
