what dental patients are saying
“I've been seeing Dr. Howard for years. What a wonderful experience every time! He and his staff from the front desk, to the hygienist all provide excellent bedside manner & world class service to their patients. Dental surgery is painless, as Dr. Howard ensures you are comfortable & provides whatever is necessary to ease any anxiety you might have during the procedure. I've had a bad experience in my past, but Dr. Howard & his staff really made my experience a stress-free.”

Wesley M. Kennesaw, GA

"My experience with Dr. Howard and his outstanding staff has been perfect since I first started seeing them five years ago. I have never experienced any type of pain through any cleanings or procedures. Dr. Howard and his staff are extremely accommodating to those who have feared dentists since childhood. The hygienists are outstanding and I walk away with a clean, bright smile every time I go in. Dr. Howard is very proactive in making sure your smile is beautiful, perfect and healthy."

Allen C. Smyrna, GA

“I have been a patient of Dr. Howard since 2010. In that time I have needed a LOT of dental work. I find Dr. Howard and his staff to be extremely caring professionals. I'm not a big "fan" of dental work -- but when I need it now, I'm extremely happy to have Dr Howard to take care of me. The staff goes out of their way to make me feel comfortable - and I have never had ANY issues with the work that's been done. I have had several good dentists -- but Dr. Howard and his staff are without a doubt the best!”
