Cockrell Dental Office provides quality dentistry for people of all ages. We offer a wide range of dental services, including preventive dentistry, cosmetic and restorative dentistry, fixed and removable prosthodontics, as well as many other areas of dentistry. We pride ourselves on being patient-centered. Many of our patients and their families have been with us since the 1950's when Dr. R.V. Cockrell began the practice in the Van Antwerp building located in Downtown Mobile. He later moved to Old Shell Road where he was joined by Dr. Vann Cockrell in 1970. The office was relocated again, to 1040 Hillcrest Road, when Dr. Kevin joined the practice in 1985. 

"Every day I speak with patients who fondly remember my father or brother. We may talk about some of the old sayings my dad use to use, or we remember the huge laugh that my brother had. I have great respect and admiration for my family who have come before me and have worked with me." 

Cockrell Dental Office has had a great legacy of care as a provider of quality dental services to the people in the Mobile community. It is our desire to treat our patients and their families for generations.

What To Expect

To begin your first visit to our office, we ask that you give us some information about yourself. You can fill these out in advance or  fill them out at our office ahead of your appointment time. Next, one of back office staff will seat you in the treatment area of the office. Once there, we will evaluate your medical and dental history as well as review any dental concerns that you may have. We will then make an assessment about radiographs and intraoral photographs. Dr. Kevin will discuss treatment options with you after the necessary information has been obtained. Some patients require additional radiographs, some require impressions for diagnostic models, some require no additional diagnostic information and a periodic cleaning of your teeth to remove the surface stains and plaque accumulation is performed. We design a treatment plan based on the needs that you present to us.If a referral to another office is necessary, we will be happy to contact that office for you and schedule a consultation appointment. We will also email helpful radiographs to their office ahead of your appointment with them.
