My name is Starr and I have been a practicing dental hygienist since 2002. I joined Dr. Takai in 2005 after working with Dr. Vogt, who mentored Dr. Takai since he was a teenager. Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to practice in many different types of dental facilities. My experience has included working with a periodontist, pedodontist, general practitioners and nursing homes.
I was born and raised on Oahu. After graduating from Kaimuki High School, I attended Kapiolani Community College and completed my Liberal Arts courses. I then transferred to the University of Hawaii Dental hygiene program. I graduated with a certificate in dental hygiene. Also, I am certified in CPR and Radiology.
My personal career goal is to provide the highest quality of care to each one of my patients. I want them to continue maintaining a health mouth as well as look forward to coming in for their appointments. To all of my current existing patients, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your overall general health. To my new patients, I look forward to meeting you and assisting you with great dental care.
Outside of work my life revolves around my three kids, Jace, Shaye and Blade. They are not only my kids, but my best friends and they are my world.
