Meet The Doctor

Dean McNeel, DDS

When Dr. Dean McNeel opened Ozark Prosthodontics in Fayetteville, Arkansas in 1995, his intention was to provide the absolute best dental care possible. In order to accomplish this, he began to attract the finest dental technicians and assistants in the industry and create a laboratory with the most innovative technology available. 

Dr. McNeel’s philosophy is simple—in order to obtain high-quality dental results, you must have both exceptionally skilled doctors and an exceptional on-site dental laboratory. 

“Without one portion of the equation, the results just simply aren’t as good as they could—and should—be,” says Dr. McNeel. 

Dr. McNeel’s career in prosthodontics spans over three decades and includes work with children with congenital defects, medically compromised patients, and patients with high esthetic requirements, in addition to full-mouth reconstruction cases. 

Beginning his higher education at Sam Houston University, he received his Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, Dr. McNeel then earned his Doctorate in Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) from the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio before going on to graduate from Louisiana State University School of Dentistry with a Certificate in Prosthodontics. Dr. McNeel also completed a two-year general practice residency at Charity Hospital in New Orleans. 

Today, Ozark Prosthodontics has evolved into a nationally recognized prosthodontics practice, which operates as a high-end clinic, full-service laboratory and nationally recognized training institution. Staffed with dental laboratory technicians selected by Dr. McNeel, the clinic and laboratory incorporate the latest scientific advancements in prosthodontics, which allows patients to have unparalleled treatment. 

This full-service, on-site dental laboratory is exclusive to Dr. McNeel’s patients. The lab team works in concert with Dr. McNeel to ensure the highest quality restorations are created and delivered to patients. 

In addition to his passion for his work, Dr. McNeel enjoys spending quality time with his family and friends. When not in the office, you can find him duck hunting, fishing, or enjoying the occasional fine wine. One of his more interesting out-of-office accomplishments is climbing Mount Hood in northern Oregon—one of the Top 10 Wonders of the West.
