The Amazing Tooth Bus

The Amazing Tooth Bus is a state of the art mobile dental office which is owned and operated by Hamakua Health Center, Inc. Dr. Ayer and her amazing staff can assist you with exams, digital x-rays, cleanings, fillings, extractions, root canals, crowns, dentures, partials, bridges, and referrals to specialists. Our schedule rotates between Waimea and Kapa’au spending approximately 3 months at each location. Dental care is an integral part of a patient’s overall health and well-being. Our mission is to educate and start prevention measures at an early age to encourage good oral hygiene habits, which will lead to healthy adult teeth. If you know someone who cannot afford dental care and they live in Hamakua, Waimea, Waikoloa or Kohala, we offer a Sliding Fee Discount Program to all patients who qualify. Financial counselors are available to help determine eligibility. New patients must complete a registration packet which can be picked up at The Amazing Tooth Bus while at one of the two locations listed below, or downloaded here at the forms and downloads page.
