When Dr. Howell graduated dental school at the University of Pittsburgh and completed an externship in Barrow with Indian Health Service, he knew Alaska was going to be home. Dr. Howell states, “I feel fortunate to be part of such a great dental practice and to have a caring and supportive team. I am dedicated to providing the best dental care I can and am also committed to lifelong learning. I feel that being a general dentist provides the opportunity to develop relationships in the community and watch my young patients grow. I like being able to provide all aspects of dental care and to develop healthy smiles with my patients.” Dr. Howell enjoys giving back to the local community through the Donated Dental Services program and the Alaska Mission of Mercy, as well as abroad in Costa Rica. Dr. Howell’s professional affiliations include the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, Alaska Dental Society and Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society.
Dr. Howell was born and raised on the Emerald coast of Florida where he subsequently received his bachelor’s degree with honors at the University of Florida. Go Gators! Together with his wife (high school sweetheart), daughter, and pup, he enjoys hiking, fishing, skiing, four-wheeling, hunting and exploring all things Alaskan.
