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...

J. Denton Hardie
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.

Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
