Dr. Howell, an experienced and compassionate general dentist, has been the primary practitioner of 114 Kershaw Dental since 1975. Growing up in Williston, South Carolina, Dr. Howell has deep ties to the state. After completing his Bachelor of Science in Biology from Clemson University in 1970, he then went on to obtain his Doctor of Dental Medicine from the Medical University of South Carolina in 1974. He was awarded Presidents List for Smile Train, an organization that provides corrective surgery for children with cleft palates.
Meeting the community’s needs for oral health is Dr. Howell’s number one priority. He feels this is done through an acute understanding of the patient’s wants and needs, supported by his experience and knowledge. His love of cosmetic and restorative dentistry led him to become certified in CAD/CAM technology, allowing him the ability to design and deliver crowns in one appointment. Dr. Howell serves as an evaluator for Dr. Gordon Christensen, which he attributes to staying current with the latest dental products. He loves any opportunity to help patients eager to improve their smile, or simply looking to maintain optimum oral health.
When asked what he likes most about practicing in Kershaw, “Being in a small town you are able to develop a special rapport, which allows you to deliver an exceptional patient experience.”
Dr. Howell is married with two daughters, and two grandsons. In his leisure time he enjoys sporting clays, and working with his springer spaniel, Rudy.
