Welcome to The Smiling Place!

Welcome to The Smiling Place, where incredible smiles are created! We are a leading and award-winning dental practice conveniently located in Royal Kunia and Ewa Beach, Hawaii faithfully serving Hawaii's families since 1978. Drs. Chadron S. Araki, Caroline B. Shek, Tabitha K. Chiu, Jennifer H. Hirota, Sophia M. Chon, and Tina N. Mukai provide compassionate, friendly and personalized dental care for the whole family.

In addition to routine cleanings and thorough exams, we offer an array of dental services to meet your needs, including tooth-colored fillings, wisdom teeth extractions, crowns, bridges, root canals, dentures, laser dentistry, tooth whitening, and veneers. Our dentists can replace one or more missing teeth using dental implants. As an alternative to traditional braces, we offer orthodontic treatment using customized, virtually invisible Invisalign® aligners. Using the state-of-the-art VELscope system, our dentists can visualize oral mucosal abnormalities that might not be apparent or even visible to the naked eye.
