Meet Ernest McDowell, DMD

"My greatest passion for creating beautiful smiles comes from the positive difference it makes in people’s lives."

Dr. McDowell has dedicated his career to making as many positive impacts as possible with his patients and within the community. As a Tampa Bay Area local, Dr. McDowell began his education at the University of South Florida and then obtained his D.M.D. degree from the University of Florida. As he went on to complete his residency and then return to the area, education was always a driving force in his service.

Dr. McDowell is a consistent voice and oral health advocate in the community. He and his staff can be frequently found at many different local schools teaching kids the importance of maintaining a healthy smile.

As your orthodontist, Dr. McDowell promises to treat his patients the way he’d want his own four children to be treated and makes sure everyone leaves with a smile on their face.
