Dr. M. Don Bell attained the Doctor of Medical Dentistry (DMD) degree at The University of Alabama School of Dentistry in Birmingham (1975). He was then commissioned as a Captain in The United States Air Force. Upon retiring in 2005, Dr. Bell returned to Alabama to private dental practice because, (in his words), "Alabama is where I love to be, and dentistry is what I love to do."


While serving in the USAF, Dr. Bell was selected to provide the ultimate standard of restorative dental care to SR 71 pilots-whose mission requirements necessitated their strictest maintenance in optimal dental health. If even a minute element of dentistry became compromised in any way during the consummate stressors of flying at >Mach 3 speed from above 85,000 feet, the consequences to these particular patients would have been catastrophic. During 3 decades of Dr. Bell's military service, not a single one of his pilot/patients had to cancel or even modify a single flying mission because of a dental issue.


Such technical challenges notwithstanding, Dr. Bell's most personally rewarding experiences came about as a result of his participation in the total reconstructive and cosmetic dentistry provided to this nation's POWs. In every case Dr. Bell was privileged to help transform egregious dental decay and destruction (caused by neglect and abuse in enemy hands); into healthy, fully-functional, and confident smiles. Because many of these patriots suffered from symptoms of anxiety-related psychological disorders, Dr. Bell successfully employed the sedation skills necessary to ensure patient comfort throughout lengthy dental treatments.


Dr. Bell has maintained an impeccable record of dental practice for almost 40 years. Therefore he has the expertise and, from within The McCollough Institute For Appearance And Health, the superior technology to improve lives in significant ways--one smile at a time.

"The BEST and CHEAPEST Dentistry is when the right thing is done extremely well and it lasts."
