"I am beyond satisfy with Dr. Yonatan Howard he did an amazing job with my dental treatment and everything is amazing from the moment you walk in at the front desk the ladies guided me step by step and April was so kind to me. I highly recommend this Dental Office because is the BEST!"



"I recently went to Dr. Y and he was great. Both him and his staff are great. I can't say enough good things about my visit. Both him and his dad provide great service. I had a root canal done and it was painless. I felt so at ease and even though I was nervous it was such an easy experience. I came back the next week and had a crown done in 1 visit using a computer.  It was very cool and it looked so good I couldn't tell even in my mouth. Highly recommend Dr Yoni and will bring my entire family. Thank you guys so much"



"I'm giving this place a glowing review because the people working there are really friendly and make you very comfortable, especially if you have any fear of the dentist. There's a lot to like about this dentist's office. The office is really nice in a great part of town.  The girls are super sweet and they made the experience far more comfortable.  They're not just dental assistants, they're people with a heart, and that matters "especially" when it comes to a dental office. And the doctor - Dr. Yonatan Howard (the younger of the two) - is very caring and took a lot of time to talk to me about my teeth and what kind of work I might need. He explained the science behind the xrays instead of just throwing out fancy terms and moving on. You can tell these people care about their craft, which is a big plus. I would totally recommend this place without hesitation. I have a slight fear of the dentist, but I plan to go back for more work, which is probably the best praise I could give them."
