When a dentist loves dinosaurs as much as kids do, you know that there’s going to be fun! The office of Doc Howie isn’t just for keeping your teeth clean and healthy, it’s a new adventure every visit.
Fright Free Dental Visits and Hospital Dentistry
The dentist can be scary for any age, which is why Doc Howie makes it his mission that every kid is comfortable during their dental appointments. We use a gentle touch every time, keeping discomfort to a minimum and teeth their happiest. For those who are still anxious or have special needs, Doc Howie practices hospital dentistry upon request. The patient will be placed under general anesthesia and monitored by an anesthesiologist.
My son is a special needs child; he is the joy of my life but can be a handful when it comes to dental care. Dr. Howie and his staff are truly gifted in caring for special needs children. We have been to lots of dentists and I can honestly say that Dr. Howie gives the best care hands down!
My four children have been seeing Dr. Howie ever since they got their first teeth. I am pleased to say that they have always received good check-ups and each one is still cavity free! My youngest is getting ready to go to college. Thank you, Dr. Howie, for instilling excellent oral hygiene practices for each of my children. The good dental habits they learned as children are still being used today!
I brought my daughter in to see Dr. Howie for her first dental visit. She is 3 years old and was visibly nervous. Dr. Howie and his charismatic personality really set my daughter at ease. She now looks forward to coming back to see him! Thank you Dr. Howie for making our first dental visit for my daughter fun and easy!
