5-Star Dentistry & Down-to-Earth Service

“My whole life, I've been to dentists who didn't seem to either know what they were doing or care that they were hurting me. I let Dr. Cowell and his staff know beforehand how nervous I get at the dentist and how I've only had bad experiences before. Dr. Cowell is the first caring, considerate, and quality dentist I have ever been to (and I've been to a lot of dentists!). He even hand-wrote me a letter in the mail expressing his concern and care for my dental wellbeing before or right after my first visit! I recently moved 2 hours away from his office, but I am considering going to him when I need to visit the dentist. He is WORTH IT THAT MUCH.” Georgia C. Jacksonville, FL

“He’s a real perfectionist and gets things done right the first time, every time. He holds his staff to the same high standards. They’re gentle and careful… I've had extensive dental work done in many different cities by some excellent dentists (and some not); Cowell is hands-down the best.” Joel D., DeLand, FL

“Thank you so much, Dr. Cowell, for explaining my treatment plan (which included a visit to a periodontist). She was awesome and indeed packed bone immediately into the extraction socket. In fact, my implant will be much stronger now for the placement of a crown, all because of your treatment plan and referral! I believe that you both not only dot all of your i's and cross all of your t's, but you GENUINELY care about the patient’s BEST prognosis. Greatly appreciated!” Coleen K., DeBary, FL

Frequently Asked Questions, Answered!

Our team welcomes all calls from those with questions or concerns about their oral health. However, we also understand that some people’s schedules may be busier or others prefer to do research beforehand. To help with this, we’ve taken the time to compile and answer some of the most commonly asked questions we get from our patients in Deland. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you don’t see the information you’re looking for!

How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?

First and foremost, you should make sure to establish what it is you find important for you, which can be a combination of various factors, including appointment hours, location, insurance/fees, credentials, and safety. You’ll also want to consider the type of treatment you require or are interested in, such as if you need to replace missing teeth or wish to enhance your pearly whites. Some dentists may be better suited for certain dental work, so you’ll want to double-check. Finally, take the time to get a feel for the practice and how the team interacts with patients. You can also read their team and doctor bios on their website to get to know their backgrounds and education.

How Much Does a Dental Checkup & Cleaning Cost in Deland?

In the average market across the United States, the price for dental checkups and cleanings can typically range between $200 and $350. Of course, the overall cost will also depend on various factors, including the location of the practice and the state of a patient’s dental health. During these appointments, you should expect a full review of your medical and dental history along with a discussion of any concerns or questions you might have. This should typically also involve a detailed oral examination, X-rays, an oral cancer screening, and a professional cleaning.

What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?

Remember, dentistry is mainly about prevention, so you’ll be able to save more money in the long run by visiting your dentist for checkups and cleanings. These appointments will allow them to monitor your oral health and effectively prevent more costly issues from arising. Dental insurance is also an important tool for helping you afford dental care, so make sure to reach out to your provider or even our team if you need help understanding the details of your benefits. Even if you aren’t currently insured, you might be eligible for alternative financing through CareCredit—a third-party financier that can split up the price of treatments into monthly, low-to-no-interest installments.

What Level of Education is Required to Be a Dentist?

Every dentist in the United States is required to have either a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or a Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS) from one of 67 Accredited dental schools in the country. To get accepted into one of these universities, a person needs to achieve a bachelor’s degree along with an incredibly high grade in a major focused on sciences and math. Dental school typically takes 3 years to complete and involves a combination of hands-on training and classroom learning. Some dentists further their expertise by receiving 1 of 12 specializations acknowledged by the American Dental Association, which usually require 3 years or more of additional training. Dentists are also required to undergo a certain amount of continuing education hours to retain their license every year.
