Dr. Okuda was featured at the annual ADA Dental convention. The American Dental Association is one of the largest in the world with over 150,000 members. Dr. Okuda was honored when he was asked to be one of only 6 dentists selected to work on a live patient. The cosmetic dental procedure was broadcasted to dental schools thorough out the country and the students could interact with Dr. Okuda and ask questions while he was working on the patient. It is the first of it’s kind and Dr. Okuda was honored to be selected.
Whereas many people may choose to rest and play during their time away from work, Dr. Okuda of Okuda Cosmetic Dental Day Spa in Hawaii spends much of his time sharing his knowledge about cosmetic dentistry, dental implants and restorative dental procedures by lecturing to other dentists. Among the organizations he has lectured for are the American Dental Association (ADA), the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), the International Federation of Esthetic Dentists (IFED), University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), University of Minnesota, University of California at San Francisco (UCSF), International Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, Japan Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, Korean Academy of Esthetic Dentistry, and the Asian Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry.
His lectures have taken him to Singapore for the Singapore Biennial Symposium of Dental Education, to Korea for the Korean Academy of Esthetic Dentistry Conference, to Japan, to San Francisco and Chicago, and many more places. He was honored to be the only cosmetic dentist to lecture to cosmetic and plastic surgeons from around the world at the International Society of Aesthetic Surgery/ Japan Society of Aesthetic Surgery Congress, in Tokyo, Japan. At this conference he was also honored as one of the “Best Aesthetic Doctors in North America”. Because of his love of cosmetic dentistry, he enjoys sharing information with other dentists and physicians, either in a formal lecture or hands-on workshop.
Dr. Okuda is also the co-founder of the Pan Pacific Dental Institute, which provides professional education in cosmetic and implant dentistry for practitioners in the United States and around the world.
