Dr. Emi Eno Orikasa, Hillary Vidinhar, Shanelle Gomes, Kellyn Fuller



Oral Health

The Oral Health Program accomplishes all phases of general dentistry by utilizing a combination of portable and fixed operations. Oral health screenings and hands on educational sessions are provided through our school based outreach program to second and sixth graders at designated schools. Students participating in school screenings are eligible for treatment and or referrals by the Oral Health Program.

The Oral Health Program of Hui No Ke Ola Pono was created to improve access to dental care, provide education, and evaluate and treat the under served residents in remote areas on the island of Maui. Our services are limited to clients living in the areas from Ke‘anae to Häna, Kahakuloa and active clients of Hui No Ke Ola Pono upon interdepartmental referral.

Dr. Emi Eno Orikasa

Dr. Emi Eno Orikasa was born in Southern California, raised on Maui, and a graduate of Baldwin High School.  From a young age, dentistry had always been her career goal.  She obtained both her Bachelors of Science and Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees from the University of the Pacific.  Upon graduating from dental school, she returned home to practice with her uncle in Upcountry Maui.  After almost 10 years in private practice, Emi joined Hui No Ke Ola Pono as the oral health director.  She values the whole health concept that Hui No Ke Ola Pono fosters, which allows clients to not only address their oral health, but also their overall health concerns in one place.  In her free time, Emi enjoys spending time with her family, going to the beach, and traveling.
