Dr. Howard and her staff have a culture and philosophy of quality customer service and patient care. Her staff are gentle and take extra time with individuals who are anxious in the office (like myself). Both Dr. Howard and her staffexplain findings, procedures and recommendations carefully and offer options while encouraging patients to stay on top of their dental and oral care. I started with Dr. Howard thirteen years ago and I plan to continue with her as long as she is practicing.
