Meet Dr. Ioane Ofisa

Hi! Everyone calls me ‘Dr. John.’ I grew up along the shores of the Pacific in beautiful Honolulu, HI. I managed to graduate from Hawaiian Mission Academy in spite of extensive hours spent body surfing at Waimanalo Beach. I met my wife Tara in Eastern Washington, where we graduated from Walla Walla University. I earned my dental degree from Loma Linda University in 2006. My 16+ years of dental experience have mainly been in the Willamette Valley.

My favorite thing about dentistry is forming relationships with my patients and dental teammates. I like to keep the atmosphere lighthearted and fun. I am patient-centered, working hard to help each of my patients reach their goals for dental health and find their “ideal smile.” I believe dentistry can be different from the norm. It doesn’t have to be stuffy, formal, or fear-based. You can enjoy visiting your dentist! I try to bring a bit of Hawaiian hospitality and warmth wherever I go. That means you can even expect a hug from me…If you want one.

When I’m not chairside, I love to cook, play games (ie. Pokemon), and be outdoors with my family and friends. I love adventure, learning, and experiencing new things. I’m experimental and playful. My hair color often changes if my teenage daughter wants to experiment with it. My wonderful wife and I are blessed with two children who make life exciting.
