Meet the Dentist

Dennis Kuwaye Jr., DDS, FAGD 

Hello! My name is Dr Kuwaye, pronounced KOO - Way and I am a proud Loma Linda University Graduate. 
​Being Born of Both Japanese and Mexican decent, Dr Kuwaye enjoys eating out and learning about new cultures. 

​Dr Kuwaye studied at the Seventh-Day Adventist Loma Linda School of Dentistry.  The schools motto of "make man whole", he takes personally.  He understands that as a dentist, patients trust you with their overall health and it is our duty to protect them and lead them to make the correct decisions. Though Dentistry is not a perfect science, Dr Kuwaye understands Quality is more important than Quantity, and he will do everything in his power to make a situation right. Never will you feel abandonded during your treatment. Dr Kuwaye has worked with dentists with 20-30 years of experience and has learned to incorporate some of the tried and true "old school" techniques with modern ones. Dentistry is changing each year, come and see the exciting things we can do. 

I have also recently became a Fellow In Academy of General Dentistry. This means I take continuing care education very seriously and love learning about evidence based dentistry. 

Dentistry is truly a passion of mine.
