Our Philosophy

The goal of Howell Dental Excellence is to enhance & preserve the health, comfort & well-being of all who entrust their care to us. We strive for excellence in every dental service we provide & pledge to always offer the highest level of patient care possible while taking a conservative approach.

At Howell Dental Excellence, our philosophy is simple—to treat each of our patients as we ourselves would want to be treated.

We Listen

When you first meet a dentist, it’s a good sign if you get to do most of the talking. After all, who knows you better than you! Satisfying your needs & concerns is our most important job & we can start that by listening.

We’re Flexible

Once we perform our exam, we will let you know what dental treatment you need, your treatment options & your costs. You choose what option fits your time & finances. We then begin your treatment at the pace you are comfortable with.

We’re Affordable

We understand how valuable your time & money are. That’s why our goal is convenient “on time” appointments, why we accept most dental insurance & why we offer affordable & reasonable financial arrangements for our services.

We’re Gentle

Modern techniques make dental care surprisingly comfortable & gentle. We use the utmost care & concern to make each visit a pleasant one! You’ll be amazed at how gentle dental care can be.

We’re Safe

Infection control in our office is very important to us. To protect our patients & ourselves, we maintain strict sterilization & cross-contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) & the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
