I usually avoid the dentist at all costs because of my general anxiety around it...but after 5+ years it was time to go. Dr. Powell was by far the best dentist I have ever seen! He was so gentle, took histime and was very pleasant to talk to. As long as I live in Maryland, I plan to visit him for all of my dental needs!

Dr.Powell is the best dentist I've ever had. I absolutely hate going to the dentist simply due to the needles and filings. Dr. Powell makes my visit easy going and he talks to me which makes me less nervous. I alsolike that he's honest and he answers questions. When I first moved here two years ago I didn't know where to go but I'm lucky I found Dr.Powell. I've been his patient for since I've moved here and I'm very happy to have found a dentist like Dr.Powell.

He was great! Lovely lady at the front desk. I saw Dr Powell immediately and was out in 20 minutes. I don’t have any issues with my teeth so I appreciated not being kept around.

I am a new patient and it was my first visit. No routine consultation, speedy X-rays, and got an unscheduled cleaning when the cavity I thought I had turned out to just be tooth sensitivity. Super fast and easy! Great experience

Dr. Powel is very gentle and compassionate; has a very light touch so teeth cleaning is comfortable and pain free. His approach is reasonable, he doesn't push unnecessary cosmetic dental work. He listens to his patients and honors their opinion.I would highly recommend him especially for anxious people. The wait time can be a bit longer because he does all dental work himself, but it's totally worth waiting for him. Once he sees you, he gives you all attention.

After I got out I called my husband from the parking lot and told him book an appointment ASAP with them . Can't believe I'm saying this for a dentist appointment but was such an enjoyable experience . The staff werewonderful and answered every question I had and were so knowledgeable as well.

First time visiting and I'm impressed. With one look in my mouth he identified problems Id wanted to tackle next visit to the dentist. He was very friendly as was his staff. He offers after hours for an additional charge butin some cases it would definitely be worth it. He is adamant about dental surgery being done sooner rather than later to avoid complications and I agree with him.

I think I only waited for 3 minutes before being called back. At other practices my cleaning was performed by the hygienist, but here Dr. Powell did the whole thing.
