Second-generation dentist R.W. Howell's father was a Navy and private-practice dentist for more than 60 years, inspiring his son to pursue a career in dentistry himself. Now, at the helm of his own practice, Dr. Howell sees patients in need of basic checkups, root canals, and dentures. He also devotes time to cosmetic-dentistry services, such as covering unsightly teeth with custom-made veneers, applying gel to whiten teeth, and applying a special gel to make teeth glow in the dark.
