“Can I schedule an appointment?”
“You’re a dentist’s office, right?”
“Where are you located?”
We’ve heard it all before. Not everyone knows what we do or how we commit ourselves to your oral and overall health. But we hope to change that!
So who is Hawaii Dental Service? Here’s what you need to know:
• We Sell Dental Benefits
In 1962, HDS was founded by 15 pioneering dentists who had a strong commitment to provide quality oral health care to our community, and they introduced the first pre-paid dental plan in Hawaii.
With just a single full-time employee and an office of just 300 square feet in the Alexander Young Building in downtown Honolulu, Hawaii State Dental Service Corporation, as it was known at the time, opened for business on June 28, 1962.
• HDS Is A Member Of Delta Dental
In 1966, HDS became a member of Delta Dental Plans Association (DDPA), the nation’s largest and most experienced dental benefits company. DDPA is comprised of 39 independent member companies, serving all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. Together we serve over 59.5 million people from 93,000 member groups.
