Florida Orthodontists Dr. Ernest McDowell and Dr. Randy Feldman have reached #1 on the Amazon.com Bestsellers List with their book A Reason to Smile: Fixing Broken Confidence with Cosmetic Dentistry. This book contains practical information on how to choose the right dental care for every need along with tips and tricks to help patients have a healthy, beautiful smile.
A Reason to Smile was created as a common-sense approach to allow readers to learn the facts about dental treatments from the experts. The book teaches patients what to look for in a dentist as well as how to spot problems and treat them pro-actively. Dental patients are given information on a wide range of topics including orthodontics, preventative care and cosmetic dentistry.
The book has been hailed as a handbook for patient empowerment. By giving dental patients the information they need to make informed choices, McDowell and Feldman hope that they will understand the benefits of choosing various procedures, particularly those labeled as “cosmetic.” In many cases, according to the authors, cosmetic procedures are far more important that simply improving appearance; often, they can be the key to lifelong dental health and increased self- confidence.
“It is a great honor to receive positive critical acclaim for this book,” said Dr. Ernest McDowell, “but it is even better to learn that patients are benefitting from this information. Our purpose in writing was to help patients everywhere understand their dental care options and make good choices.”
Dr. Ernest McDowell and Dr. Randy Feldman have become recognized for their expertise in the field of Orthodontics. In their chapter, “Let’s Get Something Straight: Orthodontics,” they discuss the different orthodontics options patients have and how these methods have allowed thousands of patients to improve their smile and overall health as a result of having correctly aligned teeth.
A Reason to Smile became a #1 Bestseller on Amazon in the United States, #1 in Canada and #2 in the UK. It can be found in both the Dentistry and Oral Health categories.

Dr. McDowell, who earned his
D.M.D. degree from the University of Florida, says that, “It’s always amazing and fulfilling to see what a difference a stunning smile makes in overall self-esteem and self-confidence. I’m happy to contribute to this worthwhile project designed to help patients learn more about the latest dental procedures they can take advantage of to get the kind of truly attractive smile that everyone wants to have.”
