Dr. Rachel Yamakawa
Dr. Rachel was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. While she didn’t grow up surfing big waves at Banzai Pipeline, she did her fair share of snorkeling with sea turtles, dancing hula, and devouring shave ice. She attended college in Los Angeles, California and went on to attend the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry. After dental school, she completed her residency training in the specialty of orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics at Oregon Health & Sciences University.
Dr. Rachel is board certified as an orthodontist through the American Board of Orthodontics. She enjoys yoga, barre, cooking, hiking, and otherwise spending all of her free time with her husband chasing after their children and yellow lab, Charlie.
