Dr. Heather Hearon
Dr. Heather Hearon is originally from Tucson, AZ. After graduating from the University of California, San Diego, Dr. Hearon earned her Doctorate in Dental Medicine at the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health in 2011. Dr. Hearon came to Maui to complete her Advanced Education in General Dentistry program. Opportunities here on Maui opened, and she has very happily made Maui her home.
Dr. Hearon is currently serving as President-elect for the Maui County Dental Society. Dr. Hearon is a member of the Maui Postgraduate Dental Forum (an affiliate of the highly-regarded Seattle Study Club) and member of the American Dental Association and Hawaii Dental Association.
Dr. Hearon’s focus is to help people discover their own unique and beautiful smiles through dentistry. She devotes her attention to cultivating relationships of trust and knowledge so that her patients can make thoughtful and informed decisions about their dental care. She also has to come understand over the years that people come to the office with very differing experiences, and many have past fears and anxieties about the dentist. “Often patients come to the office with fear and anxiety, just scared of even sitting in the dental chair. One of the most common phrasesI hear is: ‘I hate the dentist. It’s not you, I just really hate coming to the dentist’ And that’s when it kicks in for me. That’s when I focus on communication and reassurance to let them know they’ve come to the right place.”
