Dr David O’Donnell – Dentist – Owner
Hello, I am David O’Donnell, and I am the owner and only dentist here at O’Donnell Dentistry. I prefer to be the only dentist so that I can give personalized treatment to each and every one of our patients. I fully recognize that we have an amazing staff, and I am very lucky to work with them. We are like family, and many of our patients comment on how personable their experiences have been here. We consider it our top priority to make you comfortable, and to be sure that everyone is fully informed about all options when treatment is needed. There is no pressure to accept a certain option. Your priorities, budget, and preferences are what determines your plan. We offer nitrous oxide and can prescribe anti- anxiety medications if you are really nervous.
On a personal note, I grew up primarily in North Carolina, where I went to college at UNC Chapel Hill. I went to NYU for dental school, and I enjoy doing continuing education every month. I like to hike and visit beautiful outdoor spots, including Sharp Top ,McAfee Knob, Smith Mountain Lake, and Crabtree Falls with my family. I am always open to suggestions for more places to visit in this beautiful state we live in. Thank you for reading, and welcome to your new dental home.
