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 

Dramatically Brighten Your Smile With Teeth Whitening Treatment


Over time, foods, beverages, tobacco, and medications can leave telling stains on your teeth. Yellow or orange shades can sap the luster from your smile. Restore youthful exuberance with professional teeth whitening. The Dowell Dental Group offers several methods of teeth whitening, including the well-known Zoom! Whitening, for patients who want their smiles to leave a lasting impression.

Professional teeth whitening involves a concentrated hydrogen or carbamide peroxide solution applied to the teeth. The peroxide releases oxygen molecules that penetrate the tooth enamel to gently remove stains. For in-office teeth whitening, the doctors at The Dowell Dental Group may cure the whitening solution with a lamp for accelerated results. Zoom! Whitening is popular among our patients, because it can lighten teeth up to ten shades in a single session.

Our teeth whitening solutions include:

  • In-office with Zoom!
  • Take-home with Colgate
  • Take-home with NiteWhite

Take-home teeth whitening is often recommended for patients with sensitive teeth or who have difficulty getting comfortable in the dentist’s chair. The doctors at The Dowell Dental Group will examine your teeth and consult with you to determine the best whitening option in your case. Whitening alternatives include Snap-On Smile and porcelain veneers.

Our progressive, fully digital practice has two convenient locations in Carrollton and Minerva. Call today to schedule your appointment or consultation. We look forward to bringing out the best in your smile.
