Jmi Lilinoe Bassett Asam, D.M.D.
Dr. Jmi Lilinoe Bassett Asam was born and raised on the island of O'ahu, Hawai'i. She grew up on the Windward side in Kahalu'u.
After graduating as Salutatorian from Kamehameha Schools in 1997, Dr. Asam attended Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. She graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science in Physics as well as a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. Immediately following graduation from college, she went on to earn her degrees in dentistry. In 2005, Dr. Asam graduated Cum Laude with a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Harvard School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. She is the first female resident of Hawai'i and also native Hawaiian to graduate from the prestigious Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Following her D.M.D. degree, Dr. Asam attended the University of Illinois at Chicago for three years of additional specialty training in Advanced Prosthodontics. With this extra training, Dr. Asam is able to utilize state-of the art techniques to handle even the most complex of patients.
After earning her certificate in Advanced Prosthodontics, Dr. Asam worked in Chicago, Illinois as a Prosthodontist at ClearChoice Dental Implant Center in 2008-2009. She was the first female doctor to be hired by the national company. While at ClearChoice, Dr. Asam treated patients primarily for All-on-4 dental reconstructions. The All-on-4 procedure allows patients with failing or missing teeth to replace all of their teeth with fixed implant supported teeth in Just One Day.
Dr. Asam soon saw an opportunity to move back home to Hawai'i and open her own dental office, which opened in August 2009. In regards to moving home and opening her office, she says, "I left Hawai'i after high school, knowing that I would come home. Hence, I am so excited to finally be back and to be able to share my dental expertise with the community I love. I wanted to create a dental office that was esthetically welcoming and technologically advanced....and I was able to accomplish both. I am excited to provide patients with quality and comprehensive dental care. I also pride myself in taking the time to educate my patients about their dental conditions. I want them to be able to understand what is going on so that they can choose the dental solution that best fits their needs and finances. I look forward to meeting every patient that walks in my door."
Congratulations to Dr. Asam for being named to Honolulu Magazine's Best Dentist Issue yearly since 2010!
