Meet Dr. Kimura

meet dr kimura

I was born in Chicago, Illinois. My mother was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and my father was born in Chicago, Illinois. I served as a Combat Medic and Emergency Medical Technician in the United States Army and later received an Army Health Profession Scholarship to attend dental school. 

EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION

I earned my DDS in 1996 from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco. After dental school I completed a one-year Advanced General Dentistry Program at Fort Benning, GA. I served as a general dentist for five years and then was selected to begin my orthodontic specialty training in 2001 at Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio. 

I graduated from Wilford Hall in 2003 and received my certificate in orthodontics. During this time I also completed research on "the effects of fluoride varnish on orthodontic bracket bond strengths', which was published in the American Association of Orthodontics and Dental Facial Orthopedics. 

Upon graduation I served as the chief of orthodontics at Camp Zama, Japan. In 2007 I earned my orthodontic board certification with the American Board of Orthodontics. I've also served as chief of orthodontics at Tripler Army Medical Center and at Schofield Barracks Dental Clinic. Since 2011 I've served as part time faculty as an associate professor for the Uniformed Services University. I've been involved teaching orthodontics at the 2 Year Comprehensive Dentistry Program at Schofield Barracks and mentoring Oral Surgery Resident in orthognathic surgical cases at Tripler. 

I enjoy helping patients achieve a life long smile that will follow them all the days of their lives. I like to smile and I enjoy helping people smile. I find it very rewarding and fulfilling to see the transformation that takes place inside and out as patients go from crooked teeth to a healthy, clean, well rounded and functional arch form. 

OUTSIDE THE OFFICE

Some of my hobbies include staying fit by surfing out in the ocean or finding peace by working in the garden. I enjoy talking and spending time with my wife, Rhonda of over 25 years and we have three wonderful children that I love, Hannah, Kenji and Connor. 

our patients love us

“Orthodontic treatment is not at all hard or painful. In fact all I needed to do was wear the Invisalign and that was about it. The instructions were clear and simple, the office staff made it fun & comfortable. Thanks to this, my teeth are straight.” ~ Tim P.

“My experience with braces was fantastic. Before I got them I didn’t feel very confident that I would be responsible with my braces or know enough to not feel nervous about getting them. Yet they reassured me that the process could go great and they answered my constant questions with smiles.” ~ Kaitlyn B.

“Invisalign really works... If you hate the hassle of braces then Invisalign is truly the best thing for you. 6 out of 5 stars, hands down. I highly recommend Invisalign for anyone who wants the best results in the most comfortable and convenient way possible.” ~ Matthew G.

“I didn’t think there was anything wrong with my smile. After all, I had the smile all my life. The gap, from my mom and the overbite from my dad. My teeth began to shift at age 37, and a referral was made for braces... The results were phenomenal! I received compliments in a daily basis. My smile is better, brighter, and most of all my X-ray looks like a human instead of a horse, LOL!” ~ Montreal P.

“The Invisalign experience has been phenomenal! Initially I was worried about pain or discomfort. However, there was no pain and discomfort was at a minimum. Dr. Holliday and his staff took care of me wonderfully. This has far exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Dr. Holliday and Invisalign!” ~ Gary Y.

“My overall experience was great. Everyone was very professional. They treated me great. I also got great results.” ~ Bradley A.

“Words can’t express how thankful I am for my new (and improved) smile… Mahalo Dr. Holliday and girls for treating me so great! Thanks a bunch. ~ Damien A.
