Dr. Kevin Bell, D.M.D.
Dr. Kevin Bell is from Kingsport, TN. He graduated from East Tennessee State University in 2000 with a B.S. in Biology and B.A. in Spanish. He then served as a US Marine before graduating from University of Alabama Birmingham School of Dentistry. Most recently, Dr. Bell served as a dentist in the Navy including a tour aboard the ship, USS IWO JIMA. He retired to Knoxville in the Summer of 2022.
Dr. Bell and his wife, Mary Ellen (Chesney), have a family of 5 and are very busy keeping up with homework, sports practices, extra curricular activities and meeting new friends. He and the family enjoy being on the water, whether local lakes and rivers or at the beach. In the fall you’ll find them wearing Tennessee orange, cheering on the Vols- they’re glad to be back in Vol country. Dr. Bell and his wife love to travel and experience outdoor adventures with the family.
One of the things Dr. Bell enjoyed the most about dentistry aboard ship was the opportunity to contribute as an integral part of the community. As a leader in oral health, anticipating and serving the needs of his patients is his priority. For him, excellence in oral health care encompasses compassionate patient-centered care, impactful lifelong learning, and maintaining rigorously high standards. He is thrilled to continue service to patients in the Knoxville area through Chesney Dentistry.
