Annie Edwards-Howard DDS
Dr.Howard and her entire staff is amazing!! I had an emergency of 2 broken teeth my husband called her office and was told to come in immediately, walking into that office was such a calm feeling felt like walking into a friends warm home, and being greeted with a smile from a very pleasant receptionist helped me so much since I in no shape or form have ever liked going to a dentist and still at my age if 63 I will admit this!!! After today this has all changed I so wish there was more dentist like her with a staff like she has, all I can say is everyone who spoke to me had a smile and took the time to ask how are you doing each step of the way, ok I might have lost 6 teeth not 2 but this is because of the fear I had for so many years, if only I had this experience many years ago!!! Would I recommend you to go here omg yesssss !!!!! I want to thank Dr. Howard and the entire staff...

Dr. Hardie staff is extremely friendly and professional. I love that his office staff respects their patients time. Never waited over 5 minutes for my appointment to start, staff was always available and waiting when I arrived for my appointment. They truly understand how to schedule their appointments and time management. Always a pleasure to come to the dentist.

Dr. Best and her entire staff are professional and engaging, and she has provided excellent care to my family for years. She has made some tricky diagnoses and is always current on dental research and practice techniques. I can't speak highly enough of her.

Simmons Kent
Dr. Simmons is a great dentist and was able to put me at ease quickly. His staff was wonderful and I didn't even know he numbed me up! My before and after photos are amazing! Since I've been going to this office I've had a drastic improvement in my teeth.

Watson, Jessica Dr
Dr. Watson made me feel at ease in the dental chair. Would highly recommend her to people that are afraid of the dentist. Even when I walked out the friendly staff made me leave with a smile!

Five stars as a rating is not high enough in my opinion. Dr. Best provides a safe, comfortable, and professional environment for every one of her clients.

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
