Skilled Tacoma, WA Endodontist


Dr. Ron Kuritani joined South Sound Endodontics after 27 years of practice in the North End of Tacoma. We have been pleased to welcome him to our endo family and look forward to collaborating with him and working together as a team.

Dr. Kuritani grew up in Hilo, Hawaii and graduated from Waiakea High School. He stayed in Hawaii for his undergrad years graduating from University of Hawaii at Manoa in Honolulu. With his degree in Chemistry and high scores on a dental aptitude test, Dr. Kuritani thought “why not” go to dental school. Moving to the main land, he then went to the University of Maryland and finished his education at the University of Washington with a Certificate in Endodontics. What does Dr. Kuritani enjoy most about Endodontics? He says he loves meeting new people and feels he is the last line in defense before tooth extraction, saving your natural teeth.

In Dr. Kuritani’s off hours, he spends time with family: his wife Rene and daughter, Allie. Recently they moved to a new island, Fox Island! And when he gets the chance, he visits family and friends back in Hawaii. One interesting fact about Dr. Kuritani: He has “the biggest Lego collection.” He hasn’t built with the LEGO sets yet (waiting for retirement). So far, he just collects them.

Dr. Kuritani is a member of the American Dental Association, American Association of Endodontists, and Pierce County Dental Society.
