Dr. Tiffani Dunn
"I love being a dentist! It gives me the opportunity to meet new people every day and develop precious patient relationships. I feel great personal and professional satisfaction working with my hands and head to customize a patient's treatment plan, ranging from restorative dentistry to complete smile makeovers. Most importantly, I am able to make a positive difference in their lives.
I am passionate about seeing and learning new things. On the weekends I enjoy going to the beach and taking in our beautiful paradise. My hobbies include yoga, trapeze, paddle boarding, painting, golf, darts, music, singing, and traveling."
Dr. Alexander Hall
Dr. Alexander Hall is a graduate of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, School of Dental Medicine. Passionate about helping others, Dr. Hall has applied his dental skills to make a difference in several underserved communities, ranging from homeless youth to uninsured veterans. In addition to volunteering, Dr. Hall spent time in dental school conducting significant research on the prevention of oral mouth cancers and was published twice in medical journals.
Dr. Hall loves working at Bright Smiles Honolulu by Hawaii Family Dental because he believes the practice values its team members just as much as it values its patients, and he appreciates the latest-technology equipment that is available to enhance patient diagnosis and outcomes. Dr. Hall enjoys practising general dentistry in Honolulu because of the variety of people and situations he has the opportunity to encounter each day. When Dr. Hall is not in the office he can be found with his family and two dogs enjoying the outdoors.
Mary Takegami chose to become a dental hygienist because of her passion for education. Each day, she educates patients on the value of proper dental care and how it can improve their quality of life. "I've had patients tell me you're the only hygienist I would ever see" - one of the highest compliments she can receive.
Outside of the office, Ms, Takegami enjoys making beaded jewelry, hiking, golfing, biking and cooking. She's traveled from Japan to Puerto Rico and has an adorable tiger-striped cat named Butler.
