We Love Blackwell Committed to Making Our Community Great!
Blackwell Dentistry is committed to making our community great! We take pride in our neighborhood and do all that we can to make it the best place to live and grow. Our motto is “ Large enough to serve, local enough to care.”
Here are just a few of the local ways we help out and inspire new reasons to smile:
We offer many scholarships to our seniors in Kay County. In 2018, we gave five scholarships to graduating seniors of Kay County!
We sponsor many sporting events and activities. We believe that sports and extracurricular activities help with developing important qualities like self-discipline, confidence, and leadership skills.
We participate in and sponsor many community events, such as the local 4th of July parade and Christmas parade in Blackwell or Goblins on Grand in Ponca. Our community is our family, and there’s no better way to spend time with your family than through wholesome, safe, and fun activities
We provide prizes for after-prom parties, fundraisers, and silent auctions for charitable organizations. We believe that the success for many of our local charitable chapters relies on generous donations from local businesses. We not only donate frequently to these organizations but participate in many of them too in our free time.
Because of the growing need of updates to the high school and the dwindling of funds, Blackwell Dentistry has purchased the Blackwell High School’s Scoreboard for the high school football team. We believe in supporting our schools in any way that we can!
Every year, Dr. Neale and our staff attend the OKMOM’s event and provide free dental care to those in need!

One of our largest contributions to this community is our interactive children’s museum! Dr. Neale opened Exploration Destination in 2016 with a vision of higher education and a safe learning center for the children in Kay County. He and his family are the sole financial sponsors for this amazing place and donate thousands of dollars each month to keep it open. You can visit the Exploration Destination site to learn more about our mission, see photos, and plan your family’s visit.
Random Acts of Kindness
When it comes to making the world a better place, even the littlest kindnesses go a very long way. That’s why Dr. Neale sends one of our dental assistants into the community every couple of weeks in order to buy someone lunch, give gift cards away, share shirts and tumblers, and much more. We love seeing the smiles on our neighbors’ faces and how much these acts can brighten someone’s day. Be sure to say hi if you see us around!
When Dr. Neale first opened Blackwell Dentistry, he decided right away that he wanted to give back to this awesome community on a regular basis through giveaways. From movies to gift cards to technology to candy, you can find all sorts of fun prizes on our Facebook page. While we are most likely to host giveaway on holidays (such as the “12 Days of Giving” during Christmas), they can pop up anytime, so be sure to follow us!
Patient of the Day
Our patients mean the world to us, and the Blackwell Dentistry team wants them to know how much we care every day. That’s why we’ve started doing Patient of the Day. Every day the practice is open, one lucky patient will have their picture featured on our Facebook page and receive a special gift (such as a free t-shirt) as a show of gratitude. Who knows – maybe it will be you at your next appointment!
