Bill Waddell, DDS

Dr. Bill Waddell received his Bachelor’s Degree from The Ohio State University in 1977. He obtained his Doctorate from The Ohio State College of Dentistry in 1981. He is a member of the American Dental Association, Ohio Dental Association, Columbus Dental Society, Seattle Study Club, and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Dr. Waddell participates in countless hours of continuing education on implant dentistry, sleep medicine, and comprehensive treatment solutions.

In 2002, Dr. Waddell was invited to be a dental evaluator for the MetLife Dental Quality Initiative Program. Being 1 of 10 dentists in the United States that are an integral part of this program, he conducted office evaluations throughout the country in an effort to improve the quality of care delivered by the more than 110,000 participating dentists. 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. They have two children who are both enrolled at the University of Cincinnati.  Ian is a senior at the College Conservatory of Music studying E-Media, and Serin is a freshman at the Lindner School of Business.

After practicing dentistry for over 30 years, Dr. Waddell continues to welcome each new patient with a handwritten note.
