Dr. Connell was born and raised in Yakima. He earned his DDS degree at the University of Washington School of Dentistry and spent the first few years practicing in the Vancouver/Portland area before coming back to the valley.
Dr. Connell enjoys all aspects of general and cosmetic dentistry and strives to bring the most up-to-date techniques to his practice through continuing education. He is licensed in IV and oral sedation. He is a graduate of the White Cap Implant Institute, where he furthered his training in dental implants; and he provides custom-made anti-snoring/sleep apnea devices. He also enjoys working with kids; with four children of his own, he is able to relate and make them feel at ease.
Dr. Connell enjoys Yakima’s orchards, skiing, riding motorcycles, and almost any other outdoor activity with his wife, Krista, and their children.
