Pediatric Dentist

Dr. William Keeton

Prior to shifting gears to become a Pediatric Dentist, Dr. Keeton was a Scientist. He spent a year at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and advocated for STEM educational programs by working with community leaders, teachers, and policy makers to help bring learning resources to underprivileged youth.

Caring for kids blends Dr. Keeton’s love for science, teaching, learning, and taking care of little smiles. Whether the appointment is for a cleaning or a wiggling tooth, Dr. Keeton uses stories, jokes, and magic to ensure the visit is the highlight of each child’s day.

“I enjoy immensely the art of dentistry, but I enjoy more the people it serves. I care greatly for the youth and hope to use pediatrics as a platform to better serve those I care most about. I recognize the role of a pediatric dentist is tremendous. These are crucial years in which children develop oral habits that will last their lifetime. I will help them with the best of my abilities. But, I will never forget the teeth are attached to a person, and the person is what matters most.”

On the weekends, he enjoys learning how to write software code and playing sports. He is also writing (working on?) a book for young adults.

My wife & I both had our wisdom teeth pulled recently by Dr. Lum. The whole experience from consult to surgery was extremely comfortable and informed. His bedside manner was wonderful. His assistant Hunter was also very kind and personable. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone on the island!Our two daughters (2 & 4) also just saw Dr. Keeton. He made the visit so fun by singing songs, cracking jokes, letting them help count each other’s teeth, etc. It was a wonderful experience and we left the office with two confident and giggly little girls. He was great!

I think Iʻve finally found a great group of dental technicians w Hi Fāmily Dental. I need a lot of work done. I was surprised at the amt of prep work done by possible future junior dentists there before the dentist shows up. My 1st appt was w Dr. Hoisington. I appreciate how she explains every step. She does this new 1 to 4 point step on each tooth where 1 is good n 4 needs work. Further analyzed up to a 6 or reclassified up to a 12 for more specific work. Haha! I think Iʻve got it.My 1st cleaning w Ms. Yates was amazing. She was also very helpful in explaining. My last cleaning was 2 1/2 yr ago. I usually endure a lot of pain from cleaning, even worst than pulling teeth, but w Ms. Yates, hardly any. She did say I did pretty good in flossing tho. Iʻm looking foreward to more visits.L. Hussey

I needed an immediate audience with the dentist and they got me in the same day. Dr. Sullivan was amazing. Kind, thorough and gave me something to fix the problem.

I can't say enough great things about this dentist!I went in for an exam and x-ray the first day, and a general cleaning the next day.I've been to several different dentists throughout the USA. This dentist is so far my favorite!The exam was very thorough, more thorough than any previous exam at other dentistries. The x-rays were also far more thorough and precise than previous offices.The dental hygienist, Kasey, was very knowledgeable along a long line of topics. I enjoyed having my questions answered with depth and insight, as well as true scientific explanations.Everyone here was very kind and there are many private rooms!I would highly recommend this dental office. I will be going in for a wisdom tooth consult and will update my review with the upcoming experience!

Jeff was amazing. He was so friendly, personable and professional. He added the comfort of sunglasses when under the light, which I’ve never had before and made for a better experience. He was quick and efficient, but very detailed. Would definitely recommend him!

Dr. Oakley and Sabrina and Jeff are absolutely amazing!! They are truly fantastic with my son who has Down syndrome. I couldn't ask for better care for him. They are compassionate, caring, professional, gentle and kind. Hawaii Family Dental is an excellent office for the entire family. I highly recommend them!!

Dr. Sullivan is the best dentist I've ever known. Loves his work, tries to save me money. I can't believe I had to travel all over the west coast (mainland) for 50 years before I found someone I could trust in a little town like Kona!

Dr. Barry Sullivan is an outstanding, down to earth Dentist. Patients are moved through the clinic quickly in assembly line style. However, getting a teeth cleaning appointment is extremely difficult and the billing/bookkeeping system leaves a lot to be desired. It would also be great if Family Dental had their on lab on the premises.

I'm not a person who loves doctor's/dentist's office visit. But, visiting Hawaii FAMILY Dental is like visiting my extended family members. Most of the time, I end up in the hands of Dr. Coleen Sullivan and Mr. Jeffrey Thomas. It is always a pleasant time spending and catching up with them. Very highly professional and courteous service.

First, I appreciate the careful screening of COVID as soon as I arrived and the complete requirements followed to protect patients. The office was prompt in taking care of my exam and cleaning appointment. The Doctor was thorough and made recommendations. The Hygienist was gentle and made suggestions. I felt comfortable and safe. It was a successful visit.

Haven't been to the dentist in years and my wisdom teeth were finally starting to bother me so I made an emergency appointment and they got me in right away!! They took some xrays and came to the conclusion to remove my wisdoms; had to wait for Friday as their oral surgeon is only there on Fridays. Dr.Lum (oral surgeon) was very nice and thorough told me my options in what we can do wether it was taking all my wisdoms or just the one that was affecting me. His assistant Hunter was very nice and sweet she made sure that I was good and comfortable!! The procedure was really fast they got three wisdoms in less than an hour!!

The staff is always friendly and the process is the most pain-free and comfortable experience I've ever had at a dentist. They've adjusted to the new Covid-19 era with a great system. I felt very safe and I lean to the paranoid side a bit when it comes to coronavirus. I'm grateful to have access to such a good dental practice.
