Dr. Martin Ariola opened his Dental Practice at 387 Main Street South in the 1960s, providing the people of Woodbury and the surrounding towns with exemplary, comprehensive dental care. After many years in solo practice, Dr. Ariola hired a young Army Dentist named Lance Banwell in 1978, who became his partner until he retired.
Dr. Banwell continued this tradition of excellence for 40 years! He also maintained a position on the Connecticut State Board of Dentistry and took a genuine interest in guiding new dentists by traveling across the nation to many different dental schools to assist in the national board exam process.
In 2018, Dr. Andrew Blackwell was selected and given the responsibility to continue providing ethical, gentle, and superb dentistry to the people of southwest Connecticut. Dr. Blackwell is conservative, honest, and gentle in his approach to dentistry.
I believe that every patient has unique needs and what may be the right treatment for one patient, could be the wrong treatment for another. I am committed to working with you as an individual, taking the time to learn your goals for your dental health, and deciding as a team which procedures may be best for you. Your comfort and the quality of your experience at Blackwell Dental are what I strive for!
I enjoy using technology to show you what I am seeing to help you understand the reasoning behind different treatment options and how each option could benefit not only your oral health but the health of your whole body. Educated and informed patients are the most satisfied with their dental care. Come see us on the cannon green and you might just be surprised at how relaxed and stress free a visit to the dentist can be!
