Dear Patients:

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. Please be patient with us as we all adapt to this new “normal”. 

For example:

· Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office. 

· We ask that you wear a facemask in the office, if possible, but NO GLOVES.

· We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.

· You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. 

· Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.

· We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. 

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Keep Smiling!

Dr. Dowell and Team 


Kind Words from Our Patients

Great experience! All staff members I encountered were extremely friendly  which made any anxiety of being at the dentist disappear! Best experience with a dental team I have had! THANKS!

- Katie, Minerva patient

Everybody was professional, polite and they should all get raises. I am still waiting on those shiatsu chairs like you have in your Minerva office!

- Jeb Burrier, Carrollton patient

Every experience I have ever had at a dentist office was horrible. I was terrified to go to another until I was referred to Dr. Stephen Dowell's office. My teeth were so bad that I suffered with pain and infections and they looked horrible from not taking care of them like I should have. After my first visit with Dr. Dowell and his staff, I was relieved, the fear was gone. Not only did I not feel any pain during the course of the work he had done for me, but Dr. Dowell and all of his staff were so kind, caring and compassionate. They also take the time to answer any and all of your questions. They have done a lot of FANTASTIC work on my teeth and now I am no longer ashamed to smile.

I could never recommend or thank Dr. Stephen Dowell and all of his stuff enough for all the time, work and care they gave.

All of you are fantastic. Thank you and God bless you all.

-Anna M. Reese, Carrollton patient

I'm glad to write a testimonial for Dr. Dowell and his staff. I'm a person who dealt with some serious dental problems for many years, suffering with the pain and discomfort and lack of confidence that can come with them. When I finally decided I needed to do something about it, a family member recommended Dr. Dowell. After just one visit, all my years of reservation were instantly put at ease.

Dr. Dowell's personal attention and care was evident the moment I sat down, and his team mirrored that care. From the comprehensive evaluation, through each procedure and even surgical extractions, their professional yet personable manner made everything effortless and painless. Needing both restorative and cosmetic care, I can honestly say I'm amazed and completely satisfied. They've been nothing short of superb.

Every member of Dr. Dowell's team is friendly, helpful and very kind, making each visit to the office a pleasant experience. Not only has Dr. Dowell give me back my smile, but he and his staff have given me back my confidence, and I can't thank them enough.

I've had a dental phobia for years and years. LOVE Dr. Dowell and all of his staff. Just had a root canal done at the Carrollton office, and I don't use numbing. I have to say it was "a piece of cake". No pain or down time afterwards either. Dr. Dowell • • •
