Welcome to Big Island Smiles

Big Island Smiles Specializes in pediatric dentistry and orthodontics - the specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the treatment of improper bites and crooked teeth. While an initial orthodontic checkup should be done by age seven for possible skeletal involvement and spacing problems that may cause permanent teeth impaction, orthodontics isn’t just for kids. Dr. Chaekal, Dr. Sheppard, and our team welcome patients of all ages who want a beautiful smile that will last a lifetime.

Orthodontic technology has evolved from conventional braces to contemporary treatment, such as Invisalign® clear aligners, and lingual braces to satisfy the increasing demand in aesthetics among adults and teenagers. As an Invisalign preferred provider, Dr. Won Chaekal Dr. Karen Sheppard, and our staff welcome you for a free consultation at our Kailua Kona, Hilo, and Waimea, HI offices to see what fits you the best.
