Dr. Sakai & Team

Dr. Kevin H. Sakai

Dr. Kevin H. Sakai grew up in Stockton, which is in northern California. He has one younger sister, Kimi. His family was always involved in the medical field. His mother is a pharmacist and his father is also a dentist. While growing up in Stockton, Dr. Sakai’s childhood centered around his involvement with the martial arts. He started karate when he was five, and this continued until college. As a youngster, the Sakai family traveled all over the country for karate tournaments.

After graduating from high school, it was time for Dr. Sakai to leave Stockton. He earned his B.S. at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Growing very accustomed to southern California’s warm weather, he moved across to the other side of the city to attend dental school at the University of Southern California (USC). After earning his DDS degree, Dr. Sakai continued his education at Boston University in the area of pediatric dentistry.

It was in Boston, where Dr. Sakai spent the next two years focusing his training on children. It was here Dr. Sakai learned pediatric dentistry. This includes sedation techniques, behavior techniques as well as training with special needs children. It was here, where he also learned that he loved the RED SOX.

After finishing his schooling in 2004, it was time for Dr. Sakai to put his education to use. At this time, Dr. Sakai decided to relocate to the Seattle area. It was a good thing he did, because that is where he met his wife, Aleiah, and raised their son and daughter.

Dr. Sakai loves to travel with his family. If he is not traveling, he likes spending time with his family, friends, and pets watching movies and cooking together. He enjoys trying new foods and watching his favorite football team the Seahawks. GO Hawks!

 

Dr. Raymond Park

Dr. Raymond Park received his bachelor in science from University of Wisconsin – Madison. After having a great Midwest college experience, Dr. Park then continued on to receive his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the prestigious, ivy league Columbia University College of Dental Medicine. It was there that he discovered his passion caring for children while volunteering at ‘Give Kids a Smile’ and ‘Head Start Daycare Program’. It provided a chance for him to interact with children who suffered from poor oral health and allowed him to realize the importance of early oral health intervention. Dr. Park became a true believer in educating families and ensuring children have a positive dental experience throughout their early years and beyond.

Dr. Park pursued and completed an additional two years of Pediatric Dentistry specialty training at the University of Rochester – the Eastman Institute for Oral Health, where he treated a wide range of pediatric patients including those that were medically compromised.

In his free time, Dr. Park enjoys going to the Woodland Park Zoo and Seattle Aquarium with his lovely wife and 2 beautiful daughters. He is also avid sports fan of New York Giants and, of course, his alma mater, University of Wisconsin (GO GIANTS and BADGERS!). Dr. Park is also an enthusiastic foodie and would love to know any of your suggestions.
