The result of this ten year experience is reflected in the state­-of-­the-­art, efficient and calming environment his practice provides.

“The opportunity of spending time in over 200 dental offices throughout the country has given me special insight in designing the ideal practice. I have had the privilege of learning from the experience of countless dentists.”While in dental school, Dr. Waddell went to Haiti on a mission trip. His experience left him wanting to participate in other mission trips. He finally did, as a volunteer with the Free to Smile Foundation. As a part of both cleft and dental teams serving impoverished children of developing countries, Dr. Waddell has traveled to Cambodia and Tibet. Staff members Amy Harger and Katie Michel joined him on his most recent trip to Tibet in 2013. Dr. Waddell has been married to Aurora Avancena since 1987, and they have lived in Powell for as long.
