Meet Dr. McDowell


"My greatest passion for creating beautiful smiles is due to the positive impact it makes in my patient's lives. I am blessed to have the greatest job in the world and I promise to treat all of my patients the way I would treat my own children. Watching my patient's personality and confidence blossom is truly amazing!”

Dr. McDowell is board certified, which is an achievement accomplished by only 20-25% of all orthodontists. This shows his commitment to the constant pursuit of excellence. Dr. McDowell was raised in St. Petersburg and has enjoyed practicing in Pinellas county since 1987. He has an older son who attends USF Orlando, as well as three daughters with his beautiful wife Katie.
