Dr. Matt offers specialized dentistry for children and adolescents in a warm, caring and "child-friendly" environment. As a pediatric dentist, his 4 years of additional training after dental school has prepared him for the unique dental needs of each child he serves. He focuses on preventive care to help each child grow a healthy smile that will last a lifetime. His office serves infants, children, teens, and children with special health care needs on the Big Island. Dr. Matt practices at Big Island Smiles Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics which is located at Hillside Plaza in Kailua-Kona.
Dr. Matt is a board certified pediatric dentist (through the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry) practicing in Kailua-Kona, HI. He is also an attending instructor associated with New York University's Pediatric Dental Residency Program (Hawaii Region) and is involved in training and preparing pediatric dental residents for their eventual careers in pediatric dentistry.
I apologize for my recent unexpected departure from Big Island Smiles, but it is with great excitement that I am announcing I am starting my own private pediatric dental practice, Kona Pediatric Dentistry. I will begin seeing patients at my new practice starting Monday, January 2nd, 2023.
I am currently building a new facility in the Kona Costco area, but until the new practice is actually built, I will be temporarily starting Kona Pediatric Dentistry out of Sweet Tooth Dental located at 77-6443 Kuakini Hwy, Kailua-Kona, HI 96740 (Dr. Garrett Oka's office). To schedule an appointment, please call 808-698-0380 or email email@example.com. To transfer your child's records from Big Island Smiles to Kona Pediatric Dentistry, please call 808-300-0550 and simply request a records transfer.
I absolutely apologize for the inconvenience but look forward to continuing to build and foster relationships with the families of the Kona and Big Island communities. Both previous and NEW patients will be accepted. Almost all major dental insurances will be accepted, including Quest (Medicaid). Thank you all so much for trusting me with your children. I look forward to seeing you soon.
Dr. Matt Griffith, Pediatric Dentist
