Dr. Rebecca Howell
We want our patients to understand that we do NOT work for an insurance company. We work 100% for you – the patient. Insurance can be a great benefit for many patients, and we want you to know that we will do everything we can to ensure you can take advantage of all the benefits of your insurance policy. However, the treatments we recommend and the fees we charge will ALWAYS be based on your individual needs, not your insurance coverage.
A local native, Dr. Rebecca (Heintschel) Howell grew up in South Hunstville. She graduated from Grissom High School then attended both the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa and UAH. At the University of Alabama, she continued her ballet experience performing on Alabama's dance team, The Crimson Cabaret. While attending UAH, she worked part-time as an oral surgeon assistant and she developed a passion for the dental field. In 1992 she finished her Bachelor of Chemistry from UAH then matriculated into dental school. Shortly before she received her dental degree from the University of Alabama School Of Dentistry in 1996, she married her husband, John. For over 20 years he has been employed for NASA and she has been at her current office location in Downtown Hunstville. John and Dr. Howell have three terrific children and one dog: Chase, Grant, Hope and Johnny "Cash" the dog.
Except for water skiing, her current hobbies are Mom related: soccer Mom, band Mom, tutoring math at Jones Valley Elementary, Hope's baton classes, and Boy Scouts. Chase and Dr. Howell have been on numerous camping trips including BSA high adventure sites: backpaing at Philmont 2014, sailing at Sea Base in 2016, and Kayaking at Northern Tier is scheduled in 2018. Teaching the Dentistry merit badge and being a certified merit badge counselor is another way Dr. Howell supports scouting.
