The Wessberg Clinic

 
 

The health and well-being of our patients are the primary concerns of the entire team at The Wessberg Clinic.  We appreciate the confidence patients and their referring doctors place in us and we honor that sacred trust with the high quality health care our patients require and deserve. Some of our team members are fluent in Japanese and Cantonese.


The Wessberg Experience is a unique, patient-centered approach to health care that promotes health and well being by merging compassion and patient education with specialized knowledge and clinical skill. This phrase means we continuously strive to make every patient experience in our practice as pleasant and painless as possible.  It also means we have considerably more experience than most dentists in Hawaii because we have safely performed more than 30,000 tooth extractions and placed more than 14,000 dental implants. 


Simply Implants is our unique method for minimally invasive surgery. Our dental implant success rate of 90-95% with the Nobel Biocare system varies depending on jawbone and medical conditions. Exciting new dental implant services provided for qualified patients include the “immediate implant” at the time of tooth extraction and the revolutionary “All on Four” concept of immediate conversion of a complete denture (false teeth) to an  implant supported fixed temporary bridge.  The Wessberg Clinic was a leader in the introduction of these techniques to Honolulu and we have successfully completed more than 250 of these procedures.


Our practice is committed to serving the less fortunate people in our community and the members of the armed forces.  Through our compassionate We Care Program we attempt to accommodate every patient who is in pain on the same day or the on the following workday regardless insurance coverage or ability to pay.  Through our Military Appreciation Program we offer special financing options for elective basic oral surgery services, such as extractions of erupted and impacted (wisdom) teeth, and biopsy of oral lesions for dependents of our active duty military.


The make every reasonable effort to adhere to current standards of HIPAA and ACA Regulatory Compliance. We protect electronic patient records on our server and data backup storage, we use encrypted email for electronic transmission of correspondence and insurance claim submission, and we respect our patients’ right to privacy.


The Insurance Fraud & Abuse Act 191 on 2013 was passed to protect insurance companies and government programs from over-utilization of benefits by patients and providers.  According to this Act, fraudulent activities include: misrepresentation of services, falsifying dates of service, altering records to enhance reimbursement, and waiving patient co-payments.
