Premier Dental Group has acquired a dental practice in Hilo led by Dr. Alan Fujimoto. The acquisition is part of a larger purchase including four offices on O‘ahu and Kauai. Honolulu-based Tradewind Capital Group funded the acquisition.

In a press release, the company said it plans to invest in state-of-the-art dental equipment to provide same-day crowns and the most advanced service options available.

The Hilo office will provide multiple services including routine exams and teeth cleanings to specialized dentistry such as oral surgery, endodontics, periodontics, restorative, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, implant surgery, cosmetic dentistry and teeth whitening.

Premier Dental accepts most major insurance plans, including HDS, HMSA, UHA, HMAA, Aetna, Cigna, Metlife, United Healthcare, Delta Dental, United Concordia and GEHA.

“Our vision was to create a dental group that benefitted our employees and the communities we serve,” said Dr. Glenn Takaki, president of Premier Dental. “When dentists and staff are passionate and love what they do patients reap the benefits.”


“Joining Premier Dental has been a great experience,” said Dr. Scott Gomez, one of the acquired dentists. “They have taken away a lot of my daily stress and I feel rejuvenated – even my patients remark that I look more relaxed.”


Premier Dental said it provides succession plans for dentists interested in selling their practices prior to retirement. Additionally, dentists who are new to the profession can join the company and learn from experienced professionals while working with an established clientele.

“Our employees are empowered to make decisions and are committed to providing superior care to patients,” said Dr. Takaki. “Everyone who is a part of Premier Dental Group Hawai‘i–from patients to employees–is treated like family.”
