My experience with Howard & Howard Dental has been Great!! I have been to a lot of Dentists over the years and they do not come close to the level or quality of service you get with Howard & Howard. I would recommend them to anyone.

Great professionals. Richard Howard started a practice with an extremely high level of clinical skill that has been replicated by his brother and now his nephew and niece. All are extremely talented as technicians and clinicians. I’ve been a patient for 45 years and wouldn’t consider going anywhere else.
