We are so glad we found Dr. Keeton at Hawaii Family Dental in Kona. After many visits with different dentists in Hilo (including H.F.D Hilo location) I was unpleased. I called around looking for a gentle pediatric dental practice, one that would not strap my child down or put my child under and would allow me to stay with my child at all times. I’m so glad to find that Hawaii Family Dental in Kona has a different (Better!) policy than Hilo. The entire staff was kind and friendly towards me and my children. Dr. Keeton and the assistant Tana were so generous to stay late and help my son (4 yo) with an extraction that he was nervous about. Because of their patience and kindness my son sat still, didn’t cry and even laughed at their silly story’s. He used to be afraid of dentist and now loves his new dentist! I will gladly drive two hours to bring my children to a dentist that is patient and calm with my children. Thank you Hawaii Family Dental in Kona!
Dr Keeton is AMAZING. And that's an understatement.He was on time. And made my child feel so welcomed, gained his trust and now he loves going to the dentist. We joke around that Dr Keeton is Blippi, a favorite kid youtube personality.The moment Dr Keeton's walked in to greet us, his voice, tone, language and mannerisms was so welcoming. He shown genuine interest in the well being of my child, took the time to show him all the dental tools and explain each step of the procedure. It was truly edu-tainment at it's best. It takes a long of skill, empathy, love and compassion for his clients to do what he does. Kudos to him. He's my favorite dentist for all my kids now!
Went in today for dental surgery- had to extract a tooth. Hunter helped to explain the process. Was very wary when I was told me they had to numb me with a needle because I hate needles. Dr. Lum and Po’okela were amazing - they made it to where I felt little to no discomfort. After the second poke the others I couldn’t feel at all. They talked while doing it and that small human interaction made all the difference. Definitely recommend for all dental needs can’t wait to come back next week.
Dr. Keeton is amazing! He’s so patient and great with kids!! My grandson needed to have a cavity filled on Halloween, and it was the most stress free experience for him and for me! Dr. Keeton even wore a Batman mask just to make it especially fun. I have never met a dentist who worked this well with keiki!! The staff are phenomenal as well. They are kind and go out of their way to give my grandson all kids of goodies whenever he comes. He even got to go trick or treating in the office. They think of everything to make dental work a positive experience for kids. I strongly believe that negative childhood experiences with dentists can deter them from seeking treatment as adults. I don’t have to worry about that at all with Hawaii Family Dental. My grandson is actually excited to go to the dentist!!
I have tried a few different dentists on the Hilo side for my young daughter. I drive over to Kona because Dr. Keeton is truly the best! He is patient and very funny with kids. He takes the time to explain every step of the process to my child in language that helps her to relax and feel comfortable. She had to have some work done that could have been traumatizing, and it was not. I credit Dr. Keeton's skills and kind approach.
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
Dr. Oakley and Sabrina make an incredible team. Excellent care and explanations about the treatment that can be understood! Mahalo!Had the third of three surgies and a wisdom tooth removed. Dr. Oakley and Hunter as assistant, were amazing in their skill and patient care. Sabrina assisted as always - what a great team! Thank you.
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!
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!!
