Meet the Doctors
Jason Ching, D.D.S
Born and raised in Honolulu and a graduate of Punahou school, Dr. Jason Ching pursued his dream to be a student athlete at Brown University, followed by dental training at the University of Pacific, and certification in pediatric dentistry at Tufts University. Dr. Jason and his highly skilled team at Oahu Pediatric Dentistry believe in providing safe and comfortable clinical experiences.
Dr. Jason is one of the few pediatric dentists in Hawaii who are trained in the first FDA-approved hard/soft tissue Solea dental laser. Utilizing the Solea dental laser eliminates the need for anesthetic shots, and the use of a drill for children with severe dental anxiety. Combined with his specialized training in laser soft tissue surgery, Dr. Jason treats congenital abnormalities such as Lip Tie and Tongue Tie to help children with impaired breastfeeding as well as compromised speech.
"Having Hawaii's Keiki feel comfortable, safe, and positive about going to the dentist is important to build a foundation for lifelong healthy teeth," says Dr. Jason.
Christopher Nakamura, D.D.S
As an associate of Oahu Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Christopher Nakamura brings together advanced training in pediatric dentistry with first-hand experience working with children and teenagers.

Honored to be selected by his peers as one of 2019's Best Dentists, Dr. Chris earned his DDS at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine, completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry at Kokua Kalihi Valley, and had specialty training in pediatric dentistry at NYU Lutheran Medical Center in Maine and Arizona, serving as the chief resident. Dr. Chris is board certified from the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
"I realized early on that my passion was to work, relate, and interact with the younger generations to make a positive impression on their lifelong perception of quality dental care." says Dr. Chris.
