To Our Patients and Families:
In order to ensure the health and wellbeing of our patients and our employees, and given the extensive
shutdowns on a local, state and national level due to COVID-19, we have decided to temporarily close
our Clyde Y. Uchida, DDS, MS, Inc. dental offices starting April 1, 2020.
The decision to close our offices was not made lightly. Our priority is the health, safety and wellness of
our employees, our patients, our families and our community. As healthcare professionals we follow
scientific public health advice to help limit infections and slow the spread of COVID-19. Along with many
around the world, we are all severely impacted from the COVID -19 crisis, including the worldwide
shortage on medical supplies, which ultimately impacts our ability to safely treat our patients and protect
our employees. We refuse to risk anyone’s health during this time, and we are committed to doing our
part in minimizing the spread of COVID-19.
Thank you for your loyalty and your support throughout the years. Once we are able to reopen, our
supportive and amazing staff will contact the families that had appointments canceled during this time.
Please watch for updates as we will be closely following the recommendations of the CDC, ADA, AAPD
and local authority.
While the weeks to come will be challenging for us all, we are confident that as a community we can
support one another, and we shall rise above this crisis together. The Uchida Dentists and staff wish you
and your family strength, safety and good health.

Our Pediatric Dental Practice
Your First Pediatric Dental Visit
When you arrive early for your first visit, you and your child will be greeted warmly. If you do have dental insurance, bring the information with you and our staff will file an electronic claim for you. We may need you to fill out forms that help you get acquainted with our office.
Your initial visit will provide a friendly, caring introduction to our dental home where lifelong relationships begin. The initial time spent with your child will include but not be limited to homecare instruction, nutrition counseling, growth & development evaluation, orthodontic evaluation as well as a comprehensive exam that will outline existing dental concerns.
When Should I Take My Child to the Dentist for the First Time?
The American Academy of Pediatrics and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry both recommend that a child see a pediatric dentist within six months of the first tooth appearing, and no later than their first birthday. This should be the beginning of a positive relationship that will last through adolescence, between the dentist, the child and the parent. It also allows the dentist to monitor growth and development as the child grows, and catch any problems while they are still small and easy to treat. Our doctors gladly accept patients from infancy through adolescence.
Dr. Uchida is a very kind and caring Doc! He sees all 3 of my sons and they have no problem marching straight back to the office. When my youngest requires a filling he took great measures to ensure he was not afraid and performed the task as quickly as possible. We hope he never retires!!
My son has been going to the Kahala mall location since he was very young. He is 16yrs old now. Dr. Clyde Uchida has been very professional and informative. His staff is very friendly and efficient.
My boys have been going to Dr. Uchida for 6 years, and we have always had positive experiences.
