Smiling Girl

Pediatric Dentistry

When children have oral health issues, they can experience dental pain that may cause school absences and affect their ability to learn.

Dr. Stephen Dowell of Dowell Dental Group in Minerva, OH, is a pediatric dentist who helps children achieve and maintain healthy smiles.

How can regular dental care from Dr. Dowell keep your child's teeth and smile healthy and strong for years to come?

Do Kids Really Need
Pediatric Dental Care?

Yes. According to the CDC:

20% of children ages 5-11 have at least one cavity

Schedule a Pediatric Dentistry Appointment 

Did you know that children with oral health issues are three times more likely to miss school than kids who receive regular care from a pediatric dentist? Scheduling an appointment at our child-friendly Minerva, OH, practice is the first step to protecting and maintaining your child's oral health. Our dentist can treat children from the moment their first tooth appears through their teenage years and beyond.

Dr. Dowell has over 30 years of experience providing comfortable, effective, and precise treatment to patients of every age.


Dr. Dowell is passionate about making children and adults feel like family when they visit our practice. Soft pillows, warm blankets, and TVs in our procedure rooms can help to relax and entertain your child during exams and procedures.

Advanced Technology

We use the latest digital dentistry technology to provide precise diagnostic and treatment care. Our DIAGNOdent™ system uses harmless dental lasers to detect early tooth decay, and we are the only Minerva area practice with a 3-D cone beam CT scanner.

No Scary Drills

We use air abrasion tools instead of old-fashioned dental drills for many procedures. This quiet instrument does not produce uncomfortable vibrations or other sensations associated with drills. Air abrasion also preserves more of the natural tooth structure. 

Convenient Locations

Parents (and kids) are busy. So we offer three  convenient locations in Minerva, Dover, and Carrollton to help cut down on driving time to get to the dentist.


If out-of-pocket fees for pediatric dentistry concern you or cause you to delay treatment for your child, we offer in-house payment plans and low-interest financing through trusted lenders like CareCredit® and Lending Club.

Good Oral Hygiene Starts Here
