Dr. Mark Sowell is a general dentist in Plano TX, who through a constant pursuit of excellence has undergone rigorous postgraduate training. This makes him one of the most credentialed dentists in the north Dallas region.
Most patients are surprised to learn that the majority of dental schools do not teach or only teach introductory courses in cosmetic, advanced restorative, implant dentistry and laser dentistry. Dr. Sowell has elected to take extensive training beyond the basics to offer patients the highest level of care and comfort.
After dental school, Dr. Sowell attended a one-year general practice residency where he rotated through all the specialties of dentistry for advanced training. About 10% of graduating dentists attend general dentistry residencies before going into private dental practice.
In 1987, Dr. Sowell earned a fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry in recognition of postgraduate continuing education and in 1996, he was awarded Master of the Academy of General Dentistry, which is the highest recognition for continuing education the academy offers its members. About 2,000 dentists out of the 140,000 dentists in the United States have this recognition for continuing education.
