i'm a big fan of this practice. its the only place, other than disneyworld, where you get a smile, great service, and people who care. whats more than that, you can tell it's not an act. they really DO care. not only have i found an amazing hygeinist, i've been given hope for my teeth. no scolding or lecturing is ever involved as well. quite a plus! and being told flat out,"you're gonna be comfortable." is great! i'm a person who needs things explained to me and they do just that. i'm very happy to say that jd howard is MY place to go to for all my dental needs!
