Our Practice


At Blue Turtle Family Dental, the office of Kelekalani Scheel, DDS, our approach is to cultivate and maintain long-term relationships with our patients. We serve the dental health needs of the family comfortably and competently. We build loyalty by providing an excellent patient experience so that you have a place you can call your dental home. We are at our best when we deliver stellar patient care that helps our patients get more out of their dental experience and make the most of their smile! For your comfort and convenience, we offer:

  • A 3-D movie experience for long appointments.
  • Digital scans instead of impressions of your teeth that are emailed directly to the dental lab for fabrication of crowns, bridges, occlusal guards and more.
  • Wireless Bluetooth compatible headphones that allow you to listen comfortably to your phone, tablet, or MP3 player.
  • Digital radiography and intra-oral photos so you can see what the doctor sees.
  • Email and text reminders regarding your appointments and other patient education information.
