Patient Reviews

“Always does an excellent job making sure I’m okay throughout the procedure and is very professional!”

-Mary E.


“Howard County Smile’s facility was gorgeous. The front desk staff was amazingly kind and helpful. The hygienist was amazingly kind and their x-rays, photos, and initial testing were very thorough. The patient’s chair was a massage chair and they even had a ‘comfort menu’ from which you can request warm blankets, lip balm, warm lavender wipes to use after treatment, etc.

They asked many questions regarding my comfort levels, needs, anxiety, and concerns. I felt very comfortable and everything was explained to me in detail. My first treatment/cleaning is next week so I’m looking forward to another positive visit.”

-Helen L.
