DENTIST - BLACKWELL, OK

Aaron Neale, DDS

Neale Fancy

Why did you decide to become a dentist?

When Dr. Neale was six years old, he had a brother who was much older than him. One day, his brother wanted to teach him how to fight and took him into the backyard. He pushed Dr. Neale and said “hit me!” That didn’t seem like a smart idea (his brother was twice his age!) so he backed away and said no – but the pushing kept on. Finally, Dr. Neale took a swing at his stomach, only for his brother to smile. “First lesson,” he said. “Never hit anyone bigger than you!” The next thing Dr. Neale knew, he’d been hit in the mouth and his two front teeth had flown right out.

While Dr. Neale definitely doesn’t suggest this method for anyone else, this early incident started him down the path towards dentistry. He was very self-conscious about his knocked-out teeth and realized then how important someone’s teeth were to their self-image.

However, he still wasn’t quite sure what medical profession he wanted to enter into later in life. Dr. Neale shadowed ERs, pharmacies, and doctor’s offices of all kinds, but nothing seemed like the right fit. Finally, his aunt (who worked as a dental receptionist for several years) suggested that he shadow a few dentists too. He chose to visit one clinic that his family had gone to for several years, and within hours, he knew he was going to choose dentistry as a career. He was able to shadow a man who genuinely cared for his patients, treated them with respect, and worked hard. When the patients were done with their appointment, they would thank him – in fact, one lady started to cry and hugged the dentist. “Thank you,” she said. “I would have never been able to get this done without you.”

Dr. Neale admired that dentist very much, and he knew he wanted to be just like him. He wanted to make people comfortable, happy, and able to enjoy dentistry the way it should be enjoyed!

Where did you study dentistry?

Dr. Neale attended the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry, graduating in 2010. He then got started at a great job with great benefits in a town on the other side of Oklahoma! However, he and his wife had a feeling that something might change. They began praying for guidance, but no answer seemed to come – until they became aware of Blackwell. The previous dentist at Blackwell Dentistry had just retired. Once they visited the office, they knew right away that they’d found their new home and this was the place they’d been guided towards all along. Today, they’re so grateful to be a part of this amazing community, caring for the dental needs of children and adults alike.

What is your life like outside of work?

At home, Dr. Neale has four sweet daughters, two amazing sons, and the best wife ever. His family is his greatest passion, and he loves spending quality time with them whenever he’s not busy at work –although his patients are just like family too! He’s also very involved in his church and is very grateful for everything God has done for him and his loved ones. His favorite hobby is SCUBA diving, although he rarely gets the chance to do so. Anytime he’s able to take a vacation and there’s an ocean nearby, you can find him pulling on SCUBA gear at a moment’s notice.

This is the ONLY dentist I will ever take my daughters to. The entire staff has made dental visits no longer traumatized for my girls. Dr. Neale, himself has stopped working on other clients and made sure that when my girls were on the verge of having a meltdown, that they were able to get back down to their normal breathing and sweet hearted natures. Everyone in his office and on his staff, from the moment you Walk into the office, take their own time and special approach all to assure you of the best, care possible, without the fear, trauma, and brutal methods alot of other dentist s use to " manage" small children. The members of Blackwell dentistry actually do care about each and every patient they see, and I am grateful my girls are no longer fearful or having panic attacks when I inform them that their visit is due. Thank you guys so much for the time, patience, and care you give us each and every visit!!

The ladies there are professional but they run you through like a piece of meat on a assembly line. The dentist came in behind me and didn't bother to greet me and when he did he looked all of about 12 years old with the bed side manner of a slug, when I showed concern about taking 3 weeks to get my dentures and the high cost he just turned and walked out never to return. I wouldn't let him work on my dogs teeth. I would not recommend them, look around you can find a better deal and by far a better dentist

First off hand; calling to schedule an appointment was a breeze. Amanda has a pleasant voice! Upon entering the office you are greeted by everyone in the front desk. So very welcoming right off the bat! The waiting room was nicely decorated, there's an area where it's very kid friendly. Pretty fun place! I believe the lady that helped me was Kaylie.. Or Taylor?. She was very knowledgeable in what she does and educated me in everything. My daughter has had fear of dentist from 2 previous dentist ago (California). Kaylie or Taylor was so patient with her and gave my daughter the fear free of having someone just look at her mouth and do some cleaning. After leaving my daughter said "I like her mom. She has gentle hands!". One of my son said "Mom! Densmonds hands are light as feathers!". Amazing! Dr Neale is great and made you feel comfortable! Dr. Neale and his entire staff is by far the best that I've encountered. I highly recommend Blackwell Dentistry to anyone who's looking for a great experience!
