Q&A with Dr. Howell

Q: Why did I decide to be a dentist?
A: That was the one thing I told my mom that I could never become was a dentist. Karma is real in the universe.

Q: Favorite dentist growing up?
A: I only knew one dentist growing up in a small town in Idaho. They were good friends of ours. But I had no aspirations of being a dentist. It wasn’t until I meet my wife and she had a couple of uncles that were dentists.

Q: What tooth would I be?
A: Canine – there’s no other tooth like it.

Q: Favorite flavor of toothpaste?
A: Still like bubble gum but it only comes in a kids’ tube.

Q: If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
A: Somewhere in the mountains by a creek.

Q: If you could be a dentist to any famous person, who would it be?
A: Jim Carrey. He’s my doppelgänger.

Q: What is your favorite childhood toy?
A: I liked my hot wheels garage.

Q: Where did you grow up?
A: Orofino, Idaho

Q: Mountains or beaches
A: Mountains 50 weeks out of the year but I’ll take a couple of weeks at the beach as well.
