Recent testimonials:

"Thank you to Dr. Yamauchi and his staff for providing quality endodontic care for my daughter. We were so impressed with the facilities and the equipment, but most of all, we appreciate the time that Dr. Yamauchi took to explain the procedure and to show us visually what exactly was being done. Providing this type of information to a patient really helps to alleviate any fear or anxiety regarding their treatment and this contributed to such a pleasant experience at Island Endodontics. Thank you also for your follow-up call post treatment. We highly recommend Dr. Yamauchi’s Island Endodontics, where you can expect the highest level of quality endodontic treatment!" --Karen K


"I want to thank Dr. Noz Yamauchi and his staff in helping me get over my fear of going through a root canal. On my first visit, I was greeted by receptionist Leilani who was very helpful in helping me fill out my account information. Also, assistant Jo-Ann who went through the steps with me on what was going to happen and she told me all during the procedure that everything was going to be alright. She was right. I did not feel any pain during the treatment and that night. And as for Dr. Noz, I give him a "10". He is very informative and does his job very well. I suffered no pain at all. I thank all of you at Island Endodontics for all your help. I also rate your office 4 Star. It is very clean and up to date with technology. Mahalo." -- Gwen R


"Thank you for doing my root canal; more so for explaining what you
were going to do. That decreased the anxiety. My visit was pleasant as
your assistant Joanne was very professional and kind as well. I am
thankful my dentist recommended you. I appreciate the follow-up call,
thank you so much! Will drop by when I'm in the area" --Lynn S (note for Dr. Nogueira)


"Dr. Yamauchi, I wanted to thank you for your super diagnostics and great root canal procedure. It is so nice to be able to chew again without pain and temperature sensitivity. You and your staff are a caring and highly competent team. Thanks again for the great work. Aloha." --Bob C


"I was referred to Island Endodontics by my general dentist for a root canal.  Never having had a root canal or other work requiring a dental specialist, I was a bit nervous considering all the bad things people say about it.  Every aspect of this office is pleasant and professional. The woman who runs the front desk was very nice, emailed me a link for on-line registration, and gave me a breakdown of cost estimates.  I was told by my general dentist that he himself had dental work done here and that both endodontists are excellent.  

I was scheduled with Dr Nogueiro who took x-rays of the tooth in question (lucky #13), did a tap test, temperature test, and discussed with me why the root canal was necessary.  Everything is high tech, from the x-rays, microscopic equipment, and digital camera to document the procedure.  Dr Nogueiro and his wonderful assistant (Jo?) seemed to be especially concerned about my comfort level and I was pleasantly surprised that the root canal was no more distressing than a regular filling.  Even his technique for administering the numbing agent was skillful - I felt pressure, no pain.  The most discomfort I experienced during this entire ordeal was a tired jaw but I was glad that it was a thorough, not rushed, procedure and that the process was explained before, during and after.  He even reviewed the photo documentation with me which I found very fascinating and educational. 

Seriously, for an event that I hope I never have to repeat, I feel much better knowing there are endodontists like Dr. Nogueiro around." - Ren C. from Yelp review



Island Endodontics is one of the few practices to use advanced cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) 3D imaging. CBCT imaging enables our dentists to view the teeth and surrounding structures in 3D and can greatly help improve diagnosis and treatment for many of our endodontic procedures. CBCT has become one of the biggest advancements in endodontics and dentistry.

Our ongoing investment in innovative technology reinforces our commitment to providing the best possible care for our patients.
