Dr. Kent J. Howell, a prosthodontist and owner of Revive Dental Implant Center in Mesa, Ariz., is a caring and empathetic professional who has a passion for helping others and for creating new smiles. Dr. Howell has the ability to bring a unique perspective to treating his patients, due to his additional education and training as a prosthodontist—a dentist who specializes in the restoration and replacement of teeth. This advanced understanding is a result of three additional years of training that allow prosthodontists to approach situations with a special vision and perspective completely unique from a general dentist.

Dr. Howell grew up in Wyoming as the oldest of five children. Working for his father, who is an engineer, most of his youth, he gained valuable lessons in precision and discipline while spending summers on construction sites throughout many states. Dr. Howell did his undergraduate work in biology and public health at Utah State University. He then earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and completed a Master’s of Science and Certificate of Specialty in Prosthodontics at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.

During his three-year prosthodontic residency beyond dental school, Dr. Howell focused on comprehensive oral reconstruction and received extensive training in dental implants, specifically All-on-4’s. While serving as chief resident, Dr. Howell had the opportunity to teach and mentor other residents and dental students in many different areas of prosthodontics. This helped foster a passion for education which he enjoys sharing with his patients. He continues teaching by lecturing to groups of dentists locally on different areas of prosthodontics.

During residency, Dr. Howell was trained in all aspects of dental laboratory work and fabricated his own dentures and partials from start to finish for his patients. This valuable laboratory training was key in helping Dr. Howell establish his own on-site, state-of-the-art digital laboratory. This is key to being able to control the level of quality that his patients deserve.

Dr. Howell loves spending time with his wife and their four children. Dr. Howell enjoys the outdoors, playing and watching football with his boys, golfing year-round, and watching his family grow up.
