Best dentist i've ever encountered! So gentle and understanding of those with dental phobias or bad experiences in the past. I could not recommend her more! I've got some serious dental anxiety and she and her staff do everything possible to help make my visits less stressful. She's fixed a lot of shoddy work done by previous dentists and i haven't had a single issue with the repairs shes done thus far....
Awesome service, friendly staff...love this place
I can't believe I'm the first to review Dr. Marana but if you like Courteous & Friendly Dental Service then this is the place for you! I've been with Pearl Kai Dentistry since they opened and have gotten First Class treatment. From Dr. Marana's in dept personal care and in site to what is best for you, to the Dental Assistants who are the nicest Tech around. You will like the Text Message Appointment Notifications, convenient hours, plenty of parking and cozy office. I've been to plenty of Dentist Offices and Dr. Marana's Office is the Best by far!...
Dear Doctor Maraña,...
I'm writing this to "Thank You" for practicing what you say, "I treat my patients the way, I would treat myself and family".
My husband and I have been your patients since 2013. And let me tell you, we have yet to complain about you or your practice. #1) Your office, specially the bathroom is so clean and well stocked. #2) Your staff are well trained to uphold the highest standard in infection control. #3) Inform your patients about cost of treatment and options before proceeding. #4) Follow up calls after major procedures. #5) And most of all, the balance of your skill, talent, knowledge and compassion makes you the best dentist in our book. You have earned our respect and trust. We are so grateful and look forward to many dental visits with you.
Your extremely satisfied patient,
Lolita M. Oropeza
Been a patient for about 3 years now and in all my drillings and filling replacements since, I opted for natural numbing (none) and never felt any shock or surprises during treatments.
Dr Gale is very calming and steady in her work that I my streak of non numbing finally came at my last appointment.
A deep filling cracked and this was a chance to repair with new composite material, but numbing was required. She cares to keep all discomfort out of the experience. I resisted at first and negotiated the '...promise to brush better for next time..' option, but in went the pre numbing applicator.
What I thought would be a second dose of applicator, she said that was not bad right? I asked if she would still be doing the shot....and Dr said, It's done already. I guess in my checking my arm position to raise for pain and settling deeper in the chair, it was not felt at all.
The repair went well, no shocks or surprises, pretty much doze off a few times since I was so relaxed and not flinching my eyebrows. That's the best numbing experience ever, now I may just get it anyway.
I'm so confident and trusting with Dr Marana's recommendations for treatment and you should too. Her staff is so helpful and treat everyone as family....
Thank you Pearl Kai Dentistry!
I went to the computer and typed "best dentist on oahu" on Google. Dr. Gale Marana showed up and I decided to give them a try.
God bless the Internet because it did not lie! I think Dr. Gale and her team is the best that I've ever been to....
I've been going her for about two years. They know what they're doing. Very professional, quick and you feel like family. Dr. Gale keeps it together..check em out.
Dr.Gale Marana is the best dentist we ever have.She's very sincere and she treats you like her own family. She knows what's best for you and she tells you what you need to know.She's good in what she does and I trust her.Me and my husband are blessed to have her as our dentist. Thank you and kudos to you doc....
I LOVE IT HERE ! Dr Marana and her staff are very friendly. I called in on Thursday because I had a dental emergency. Thank GOD they were still there. I was able to get an appointment the next day.
I am totally nervous when it comes to dentists, so I freak out and arrive extra early to prep myself.
THANK GOD, my appointment went very smooth. Usually it hurts whenever I get a cleaning or anything done because I feel like the dentists are rushing and they put too much pressure into my mouth BUT this time it felt like it wasn't rushed and very smooth, little to NO PAIN AT ALL. I also like how she tells me exactly what is going on BEFORE and AFTER doing any work. I'm VERY HAPPY with the work that has been done so far. After each appointment, she goes over what is going to be done next appointment and an estimate of how much the insurance will pay along with your co-pay. VERY HELPFUL
I like to be in the loop when getting into ANYTHING ! For that, thank you Dr Marana and staff (Tachido and Pam) sorry if I spelled your name wrong....
Very clean and comfortable waiting room. Nice, friendly staff. Gale was very helpful and gave me tips on how to brush hard to reach places where tarter builds up. I like how they give you sunglasses to wear when they shine the bright light in your face. And of course, a goodie bag and yelp deals are always a plus!...
