Our Promise to You

Every day, we aim to fulfill our promise of offering an amazing dental experience to our patients. You can expect: 

  • Staff to listen to your needs and wants. Unless you have a dental emergency, you will first meet with the doctor in a quiet setting to talk about your concerns, dental history, and treatment goals. This conversation helps make sure that we understand what you are seeking and help you have confidence that we will meet your needs.
  • A comprehensive approach to treatment. Your mouth and teeth are a system with many interrelated parts. For long-term health and stability all the parts must be considered. Our initial exam includes evaluation of your teeth, gums, bone, soft tissues, joints, muscles, function, comfort, health, and aesthetics. Together, you and your doctor will determine how to best achieve your goals.
  • A long-lasting relationship with our team. Through getting to know you, our patients, and you getting to know us, we are better able to serve your needs. We work with you to help you attain the highest level of dental health, whether your goals are restorative, cosmetic, or maintenance related. Each time you visit, you’ll be scheduled with your same doctor, dental hygienist, and dental assistant.
  • A proactive and collaborative approach. Our philosophy is one of proactive care. We find that with regular preventive care, we can identify issues early before they turn into major problems. This way, most patients experience few, if any, dental problems.

Investments in High-Quality Technology

All the treatments we offer at JD Howard Dental are based on the latest research in the dental field. We use high-quality technology, cutting-edge techniques, and secure cloud-based programs to evaluate your dental health and help you keep up with your dental care.
