Meet Dr. Miyamoto

mike_2x3-suitGraduating with honors in 1987, Dr. Michael Miyamoto earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery in Maryland.  As a student there, Dr. Mike was selected for inclusion in Gamma Pi Delta Prosthodontic Honor Society where qualifications for this honor limited enrollment to the top 15% of the class. Admittance into the society requires a strong understanding of Prosthodontics and the dexterity and skill-set that shows excellence in this field.

The field of Prosthodontics is defined as aesthetic and reconstructive dentistry for rehabilitation and maintenance of oral function, comfort, appearance and health of patients with clinical conditions associated with missing or deficient teeth using crowns, bridges, implants, and full and partial dentures.

Dr. Mike has been practicing dentistry on Maui with his father Dr. Alan Miyamoto for 29 years.  As part of his philosophy to deliver excellence in dentistry and patient care, he has continued to expand his skills and dental knowledge by completing more than 1300 hours of advanced continuing education training.

With a long emphasis on cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Mike has enhanced the natural beauty of many of his patient’s smiles using conservative, state-of-the-art procedures.  He also does general and family dentistry, treats Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) and the associated pain using conservative Gneuromuscular (GNM) modalities, and is dedicated to providing his patients with the highest quality of preventive and restorative care.

Student Film Documenting Life at School of Dentistry Holds Deeper Family Meaning

 The distance from the island of Maui to Baltimore is 4800 miles and a 12 hour flight, but this hasn’t stopped three generations of Miyamoto family members from attending the School of Dentistry.

Courtney Miyamoto ’18 is a rising Junior at SOD. She is the daughter of Michael Miyamoto ‘87, and granddaughter of Alan Miyamoto ’62. When she heard that her grandfather – who had successfully battled cancer twice since 2007 while still maintaining his private practice in Maui – was diagnosed with cancer for the third time, Courtney decided to produce a GoPro video documenting her life as a 2nd year student as a tribute to him….
