Dr. Garrett McDowell is a general dentist from greater Philadelphia. He grew up in Abington, attended LaSalle College High School, earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Randolph-Macon College and completed his Doctorate in Dental Medicine at Temple University Dental School in 2014.
Additional training was completed in Anesthesiology/Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery through a 1 year intensive internship at Drexel University Medical School’s Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency program. Dr. McDowell also trained at the Las Vegas Institute in Dental Implantology and Cosmetic Dentistry.
Dr. McDowell has experience working with a very diverse patient population, from multiple private practices in the Philadelphia area to a Hospital based residency. In the hospital setting he treated maxillofacial trauma and pathology patients, along with pediatric, craniofacial and dentoalveolar abnormalities.
He has performed over 150 outpatient general anesthesia cases in multiple Oral Surgery specialty practices. He has surgically placed and restored over 240 dental implants, performed over 700 root canals and restored over 1400 fixed prosthodontic cases (Crown and bridge).
Dr. McDowell’s passion for dentistry comes from continuous education, learning new techniques and procedures and growing his expertise so he can provide comprehensive and complete care to his patients.
As Dr. McDowell always says, “If I couldn’t learn and grow in my profession, and take time to improve and sharpen my skills, I would never be happy. Dentistry is such a diverse medical subspecialty that it allows, for those that seek it, an opportunity to grow and find fulfillment.”
Dr. McDowell currently lives in Wayne, PA with his wife and two young sons. The family enjoys spending time outdoors, and going on adventures with their two dogs.
Dr. McDowell is excited to join the Brilliant Smiles dental family, and he will be seeing patients in their Havertown and Pottstown offices.
