He married his wife, Karin, a month later and moved to Hawaii. His father had been stationed here during the war and returned frequently, and Dr. Brown's passion has always been sailing. In his first year here, he worked at Palama Settlement at the Strong Carter Dental Clinic, which gave him considerable experience working with Hawaii's children. He then associated for 2 years in Kailua and Laie before opening his present office.

His wife is a special education teacher, and an accomplished singer and pianist with a music degree from the University of Hawaii and an English degree from Michigan State University. She had previously performed for the Hawaii Opera Theater and the Makai Blues Band. Their son, Ryan, graduated from Punahou in 1994, and Arizona State University in Industrial design. He is managing a fine dining restaurant in Tempe, Arizona, and got married in 2006.

Sailing has remained Dr. Brown's passion, and he does considerable local racing and cruising. He sailed his present boat, Ho'onanea, from San Francisco in 1988 in the Pacific Cup Race. In 1991, his family accompanied him on a four month trip to the South Pacific with stops at Palmyra, Fanning Island, and the islands of Tahiti, Tuomotus and Marquesas. He has become more active in performing magic which has been a long time interest, and performs at corporate and party events.

His specific interests in dentistry are in providing comprehensive care and restoring beautiful smiles. He has taken many courses in restorative, TMJ, and implant cases. Dr. Brown feels lucky to have maintained long term staff members who all share the desire to provide quality dental care in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.

Cheryl Catobus, Business Manager

Cheryl has been with the Temple Valley Dental Group since early 1980, when she started as the receptionist.  She was raised here in Hawaii, and went to Kailua High School.  Along with her husband, Bud, she has lived in Kaneohe for many years.  The rest of her family consists of two Alaskan Malamutes, "Bear" and "Storm". Cheryl is an avid animal lover and supports the organizations Wolf Haven and Defenders of the Wild Life.  Her particular concern is the reestablishment of the wolf population into their original habitat.  Aside from the dogs, she keeps busy with working in the rose garden.  Frequently, she brings the roses to the office for everyone to enjoy.  She has also found a love of golf, and plays rain or shine.

Her twenty plus years in the office has given her considerable experience in handling all kinds of insurance claims, as well as other areas of office management she oversees.  She is great at remaining calm during busy times, and her warm personality and pleasant smile are some of Temple Valley Dental Group's greatest assets.
