I have been going to Dr. Howard for about 10 years and I have had extensive dental work completed by him. After having many bad dental experiences, Dr Howard is a breath of fresh air. No pain and excellent job on all of my procedures. Also, very friendly staff and great hygienist. Highly recommend. Best dentist ever!

I could not be more pleased with becoming a new patient of Dr. Michael L. Howard last year! Dr. Howard and every member of his team are so welcoming, caring and dedicated to their patients - and what a comfortable, beautiful office. Dr. Howard is truly an artist with every aspect of his expertise. His plan for my new smile was more than I could have hoped for - fit, function and a fabulous natural smile; all with less anxiety on my part. I truly look forward to all future visits. He has my highest recommendation!!

I have been a patient for over five years. During every visit, I am totally impressed by the friendly staff and the great dental care provided by Dr. Howard and his hygienists. Dr. Howard is a true professional, he will explain in detail every step he is taking and why a certain procedure is so important to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. He is a perfectionist, a trait I certainly look for in a dentist!

I moved 4 months ago and a friend suggested a dentist close by. No way, I have a wonderful dentist and he is worth the drive. He has a great chair side manner, professional, personable, and the quality of care will exceed your expectations. His entire staff is so nice and the dental staff knows how to deliver great care as well. I had 2 crowns put in and I dreaded having crowns but, they look great and exceeded my expectations. Oh, and if you worry about shots and pain when going to the dentist you won’t find it here. I did not even feel the novacaine shots and he is very gentle. I am comforted knowing I have a great dentist to care for my aging teeth. By the way I used to be a hygienist so you know we have high expectations with dental care.

For the past 30 years Dr Michael L Howard and his team have taken care of my dental care needs... everything from periodic checkups to implants. The quality of care has been excellent. On several occasions Dr Howard has referred me to specialist and without fail the specialist have remarked about the excellent work done by Dr Howard. In addition to Dr Howard the entire team of dental assistants, hygienist and front office people are thoroughly professional and a pleasure be with. I can highly recommend Laser, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry to anyone seeking quality care provided by quality people

Dr. Michael Howard is a fantastic dentist. He is truly an artist with his crown work. My enamel was failing in my front teeth and we decided to not only crown but straighten my teeth in the process. All work was completed over a few months and my teeth look great! He is now our family dentist and we are very thankful to Dr. Howard and his great staff for being there and taking care of all our dental needs.

My experience with Dr. Howard was the best I have ever encountered with a dentist. He explains exactly what he is going to do and the end result is fantastic. He has done several crowns for me and the most critical were the 4 bottom front teeth that were all cracked and looked terrible. It was a pain-free procedure and the crowns are magnificent. I can smile with confidence that my teeth look great! All of Dr. Howard's people were very friendly and made you feel like family. I am retiring to Florida, and my only regret is that I cannot take Dr. Howard with me.

Dr. Howard and his entire staff are the most professional, courteous, and successful dental practice I have ever been to in over 50 years. They all work their hardest to give you excellent dental care from each part of their practice. From the time you walk in the front door you are treated with respect and care as if you were family. They are all wonderful, Front desk check in with Karen and Mary Lou; Dental Hygienist, Rachel, Dental Assistant: Brandy and Office staff; Marie. Dr. Howard is the best, I know when I walk in the door he along with his staff will provide me the best possible care for whatever my dental needs are for that particular day. He is professional, kind, and very gentle. He will make your dental experience the most gentle and effective as possible. They have all worked hard and shown me great consideration for all my Dental needs and such wonderful, caring people. You can trust them and know when you leave you are getting the best dental care possible.

Dr Howard has been my dentist for seven years. He and his staff have have shown exemplary care of my dental needs. Dr. Howard does not hesitate to consult with other with other practitioners in order to provide the optimum resolution as the case may require. Recently I needed worn crowns replaced. Dr Howard's recommendations included cosmetic intervention that structurally enhanced my appearance while improving the general health of my dental needs. I highly recommend Dr. Howard. Call him for a consultation. Your smile deserves it!

moved to the area over two years ago and I was in need of a cosmetic dentist ( to maintain and continue my cosmetic procedures). I had previous cosmetic procedures done and was very pleased and I wanted that same results going forward. Dr. Howard has not disappointed me with completing my smile. Dr. Howard is an excellent dentist. He takes time to explain the procedure prior to performing the procedure. He is a natural professional and a naturally lovely personality. Dr. Howard have also returned my phone call and offered his advice doing the weekend . I would recommend Dr. Howard to my family and friends. Dr. Howard and his staff always put the patient first.

I have been a patient of Dr. Howard's for over 20 years. He answers questions thoroughly and is very sensitive to making sure there is no pain during any procedure. He will even follow up that night after certain procedures to make sure you are doing okay. I am also thrilled to have Dawn as my hygienist. It is so nice to have the same familiar faces each time I go to the office. They greet me by name and know my history. That is a great comfort!

I have been a patient at Dr. Howard's office for many years. The service provided is both professional and compassionate. Due to life circumstances, I had to visit another dentist's office for a time. A cavity was worked on, and it felt like I had been punched in the jaw. I have never felt that way from Dr. Howard's work. He is gentle, and always concerned about a patient's overall well-being. Everyone in the office is polite and genuine. I am so happy to be back at Dr. Howard's office. I don't like going to the dentist, but I feel safe with Dr. Howard and his wonderful staff!

While at the dentist yesterday, I thought “I really look forward to coming to the dentist”. Honestly I’ve never had this thought in my life! However since I’ve have been going to this Dentist (Michael L. Howard) that’s how I feel. My biggest fear was the pain I might experience. I do not have that fear anymore! They really take care of you. For the first time I’m not anxious when going to the dentist! The front office is cozy and inviting. I noticed as others were coming in they smiled as they were greeted warmly by the staff. From the time I walk in the office until the time I leave I feel comfortable. “NO JOKE” The first person I met there was Karen, she was just a sweetheart and made me feel so comfortable. She started with a friendly hello and she continued by working out a reasonable payment schedule for me. She told me a little bit about the procedure I was seeking to have and how much I would appreciate the end result and I believed her. Let me add, she was absolutely right! I am more than happy with the end result! I could say so much more about her but I’m trying to keep this short. As I moved back to the dentist chair I met Joyce, who really helped me relaxed with the “good oxygen” As I took deep relaxing breaths I was completely stress-free. The staff is not afraid to talk with you! Joyce and I talked as I waited for Dr. Howard to come in. We share the same name and I learned something about the origin of my name! When Dr. Howard comes in he smiles, say hello and ask how you are, makes sure you’re comfortable and explains what you about to experience. I actually felt calm meeting the dentist. Honestly I didn’t experience any anxiety! He’s a kind gentleman and an exceptional dentist. On my way out Karen and Mary Lou is ready to give me my next appointment and answer any questions I might have. Mary Lou is the most patient person you ever want to meet, she never rushes you and is always available to assist you in every possible way! If you’ve experienced anxiety at the very thought of going to the dentist, give this dentist a try and you’ll be writing a review just like this one, I promise! Joyce

The staff at Dr. Howard's has been one of the most polished and considerate of any professional services office I have encountered. Our family has been patients of Dr. Howard's for 30 years! We have had check-ups, x-rays, crowns, root canals and cosmetic dentistry, all done with gentle attention and state of the art equipment and knowledge.We have great confidence (and pain-free comfort!) in Dr. Howard and his staff from the videos that explain procedures, to the warm neck roll offered while you're in the chair. My children have moved into Atlanta but still return to Marietta for their dentist appointments with Dr. Howard. We have never had an issue with insurance filing, which they take care of, or any pain during or after procedures. A delight to go to the dentist!

I have been a patient of Dr. Howards for over 30 years. I became his patient when he bought the practice from the previous dentist and have followed him to his current office. I now drive for about 1 hour to get to his practice, but it is well worth it. Dr. Howard and his staff are always so friendly on the phone and in the office, they make you feel like you are a long lost friend every time they see you. Whatever dental issues I have had done I always have felt that they make you feel comfortable and put you at ease-pain is no longer a issue.I would recommend Dr. Howard to anyone.

I have been a patient of Dr. Howard's for about the last 4 years and would recommend him to any person looking for a fantastic dentist. I have always had a lot of anxiety and fear going to the dentist. For fifteen years before going to see Dr. Howard for the first time, I had one bad experience after another with prior dental offices and had all but given up on finding a dentist that would be able to fix all of my extensive dental problems. I figured I would just have to live with an ugly smile and tooth pain for the rest of my life. Dr. Howard and his staff have literally changed my life! They worked their magic on me and I am no longer afraid to go to the dentist! Best of all, I don't have to live with tooth pain for the rest of my life and my smile is looking better every day!!!!!! Dr. Howard himself used to have a lot of anxiety about going to the dentist, and that is the reason he became a dentist, which is extremely evident in every aspect of his care. Their office is very comfortable, nicely decorated, and surprisingly relaxing. The staff there is wonderful!!! As soon as you walk in the office, Karen greets you with a smile and says hello, calling you by your first name. That initial contact with Karen sets the tone for the whole visit, it's like you're just there to see a group of your friends, you are not just the 10:45, squeezed in with a bunch of other numbers in their appointment book. And unless your have to update your information because you moved or switched your insurance, they bring you right back to get you started, which is great because my anxiety really peaks if I am left to sit out in the waiting room and think about being at the dentist for too long. When I first started going to see Dr. Howard, I would often not show up for my dental follow-up appointments because I was scared of all dentists. Karen and Marylou, in the front office, were very sweet and kind when they would call me for a missed appointment. I feel they had my best interest at heart, and would just keep calling me to coax me back in! Same thing goes for the dental hygienists and assistants. In the past, I would get fussed at for the condition of my teeth and missing appointments. The wonderful professionals that work for Dr. Howard would always encourage me when I would finally come in for my follow-up appointment to keep coming back and get all of my dental problems fixed, while they were still fixable. I feel as though they genuinely cared about me as a person, not just a patient. They truly understood my fear and anxiety and were very gentle while working on my mouth and I continued to keep going back because I would experience NO PAIN during my appointments. They go above and beyond at Dr. Howard's office to give you the absolute best care. They give me a warm neck roll, a warm blanket, and nitrous oxide gas before anyone ever looks inside my mouth. Then during any procedures, they keep checking on my comfort constantly and check to make sure I am still ok or if I need a break. A BREAK??? Never has any other dental office every asked me if I needed a break during a dental procedure, ever! They definitely care more about your comfort than just getting through all of their appointments in their appointment book for the day! Dr. Howard is an awesome dentist! Although I do not like getting Novocain shots, they are necessary for major dental work and he is THE VERY BEST at what he does and there is no pain involved in major dental procedures at performed by him in his office. He is a professional and works extremely hard every day to help improve and maintain all of his patient's oral health. He also makes sure and personally calls you the night after any procedure you have in his office to make sure you are doing well! The staff at Dr. Howard's office always calls your insurance company and get all your dental work submitted to your insurance plan quickly. They also explain your cost of dental procedures, if there is any, before having the work done. That way there are no surprises if your insurance company doesn't pay for all of your dental work or if you have a deductible. The service that Dr. Howard and his staff provide is the very best quality of care, with no pain, and is a truly a value!

I started seeing Dr. Howard in 2010 when I chipped a tooth and my regular dentist told me that it would be a week before they could see me. I was so upset and had seen ads for Dr. Howard, so I called his office, and to my surprise, they were able to get me in the next day. I loved the staff from the very first visit and Dr. Howard was informative, patient and caring. I had researched his qualifications before calling, and besides his wonderful attitude, had the expertise to go with it! When I had a crown replaced, he even called me at home to check and make sure that everything was OK...I was impressed! I wouldn't want to go to anyone else since I've been going there...I would highly recommend them to anyone who asks (& I have made several referrals). It's great to find such a wonderful dentist, hygienist and team to trust my smile to!

I've been using Dr. Howard for 20 plus years now. Due to insurance requirements, there were times I would try other dentists but I didn't receive the genuine care I've received with Dr. Howard. So ultimately, I would always go back to Dr. Howard. The care and patience I receive is second to none. The staff is always pleasant and greet you by name. I consider Dr. Howard and his staff friends.
