First Visit Expectations
If you're like most patients you appreciate being informed before arriving at the dentist. Below is an overview of what you can expect when visiting Dental World Kapolei.
Let's get to know each other
Your first visit is not only about our team getting to know you, but also about you getting to know our team. In the time we spend together, we encourage you to ask questions, express your concerns, and share with us anything you want us to know to help make your care as individual as you are.
Part of getting to know you and providing safe, personalized support involves reviewing your medical history. Certain medical conditions and medications can influence your treatment protocols – so you will be asked to provide a list of your medications.
Next, full-mouth x-rays and a comprehensive exam of your teeth, gums, mouth, and jaws, will be performed, including a non-invasive oral cancer screening.
You are in great hands
If you haven’t been to a dentist in a long while, please do not worry. You’ve made a important decision – no need to feel guilty!
Once your entire exam is completed, Dr. Chaekal and Dr. Ing will talk with you about their findings. Together you can create a healthy, effective treatment plan that best meets your dental and personal requirements.
Finally, we want you to know we will go above and beyond to make you feel relaxed and safe. Not only is your physical comfort important to us, but your emotional comfort is as well. So, come in, recline, and unwind – you’re in great hands.
For our orthodontic patients

The doctor will review all issues and potential issues, and provide and in-depth review of all orthodontic treatment options.
We look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve a beautiful smile!
