Patient Testimonials

HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Howell and her amazing team at Howell Orthodontics. We checked out some options in the area and her personal approach and caring nature were the #1 reason we picked Howell to start. We are mid-treatment now and always appreciate the top care and concern they show for each patient. Even through COVID, Dr. Howell and her staff have been great about providing updates and treatment changes all while keeping everyone safe.

So thankful for all at Howell Orthodontics!

We always have a great experience at Dr. Howell’s office. I appreciate her staff being patient and answering all my questions.

Megan C. August 2021


Dr. Howell explained treatment expectations clearly, letting me know what to expect, length of treatment, and exactly which issues would be addressed. Can't wait to see how my teeth will look when I'm done!

Erik B. July 2021


This was our first visit to Dr. Howell’s office! Everyone is super nice and helpful. She helped to reiterate what we have been telling our daughter:  brush, brush, brush to keep her teeth healthy! Thank you!

Sandie L.  June 2021



Dr. Howell is amazing! The entire staff did an excellent job of keeping the patients safe while still making sure to provide the best care possible! I would highly recommend Dr. Howell to anyone who needs to see an orthodontist!

I had my braces put on yesterday and Dr. Howell and her staff were amazing! Everyone was so kind and sweet and made me feel right at home. The office was nice and clean, and they explained everything in detail, as well as answered any other questions I had. I'm so glad I chose Howell Orthodontics to go through this braces journey with.
Jasmine H. April 2021


I love it here. We had to find another orthodontist for our youngest boy and I found this place. They always have a nice clean facility, staff is always nice and professional, never a long wait, honored the quote they gave me, and they make my child feel at ease. My son needed an expander. His teeth are straight so they chose to expand slowly, turning once a day, trying to keep them straight and save me from paying for braces later if they can (obviously there are no guarantees). I like how they broke it down and explained things to me and also made sure I knew the possible outcome (try not to do braces but sometimes it's necessary). I felt like they are committed to the patient and giving them the best care and not trying to do things just to get extra money. Super sweet ladies! I can't think of one bad thing honestly to say about the place. I highly recommend.

Kimberly D. March 2021



We just finished our first phase of braces with our oldest son and have been so impressed with not only the results but also with each and every staff member. We pass many other options on our way to Howell Orthodontics but it is 100% worth the drive and we wouldn’t consider anywhere else for our other two sons. Highly recommend!

Alexa M. February 2021


Wonderful experience with Dr. Howell and her staff! We had an initial consultation with Dr. Howell scheduled for March right when the pandemic hit and Dr. Howell and her team pivoted beautifully to an online consultation that was professional, personal and concise. I know we are in good hands with this team!

Lynsee M. January 2021


It is rare to find a business that does everything right every single visit, but Howell Orthodontics is 100% every single time. It’s actually enjoyable to go in - they are all professional and friendly. I recommend Dr Howell and her staff wholeheartedly!

Connie M.  January 2021


We have been to the office for 2 consultations so far and we could not be happier with the experience. First off, the office itself is beautiful. The waiting room is spacious and well kept (when it's open under normal circumstances.) It makes a great first impression.

The office staff was also great- very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Dr. Howell has a great bedside manner. She took the time to explain everything to us and answered all of our questions without making us feel rushed.

My daughter is excited to return for follow-up visits and to start her treatment in a few years, and I think a lot of that has to do with the great environment the ladies at the office have made. Keep up the great work and thanks for all you do!

Shannon Z. December 2020


We had a Zoom consult for my daughter and even through the video chat the friendly personality of Dr. Howell and the Treatment Coordinator, Ruth, shined. It was easy to communicate and have a personalized conversation about my child. We look forward to moving forward with our treatment plan at Howell Orthodontics!

Candy G.  November 2020


The staff at Howell Orthodontics is amazing. I could tell they enjoy working with one another and helping their patients achieve a truly beautiful smile. I felt like I was part of the family and it was only my first visit. I know they have My best interest at heart and will do everything they can to help me get my smile back!

Brittany B. October 2020


More than orthodontics. We chose Howell Orthodontics because they have a reputation for delivering beautiful smiles - AND for being great members of our community. Everyone in the office is amazing and goes out of their way to get to know and support their patients. For example, my daughter won an award from the local Rotary Club. A week later, she received a congratulations card singed by the entire staff. Who does that? We appreciate the impact this business has on our community, and our family!
April S.  September 2020


 LOVE LOVE LOVE Howell Orthodontics! Each person that I had contact with from start to finish was super nice and friendly. Everyone made my experience super easy and enjoyable. I’ve had orthodontic care in the past and it was not comparable to the experience with Howell Orthodontics & I really enjoyed my prior orthodontist. ❤️ I would definitely recommend!!!

Brandy K.  August 2020


My daughter started with Dr Howell about a year and half ago and just got her braces yesterday. Dr Howell wanted to giver her mouth time to grow and mature before starting phase 1 and we are so pleased with her care and consideration. She isn’t after your money she looks out for the well being of your child ❤️ I could not be more pleased with her or her staff, they are always kind and supportive and truly show genuine care and love to all of their patients and their families. We LOVE Howell Orthodontics!
Jennifer M.  August 2020

Dr. Howell gets to know her patients & actively participates in community events. I have two children currently in braces and both look forward to their appointments. The staff is professional & courteous and always willing to go above and beyond to help. We love Howell Ortho!

Vanessa L. July 2020


My first visit with Howell Orthodontics was amazing! The staff was very helpful, answered all of my questions and the application of my top braces was painless and easy. I can’t wait for my beautiful smile and confidence boost. Looking forward to the next two years!

Doria G.  June 2020


From our first appointment where braces were not rushed until her teeth were ready and till now a few weeks after her top braces were put in, I can't say how much we appreciate Howell Orthodontics. Knowledgeable, friendly, on-time and actually caring team of professionals. Our family would highly recommend Howell Orthodontics!!
By Misty G.  May 2020

From the kind and helpful staff, to the time spent with Dr. Howell, to the pristine facility, our experience was unmatched by any other office visit we've ever had. We couldn't have been happier and actually look forward to visiting their office again!

By Abigail L. March 2019


Gorgeous facility, honest professional opinion for my daughter's braces, actually recommended we wait 7 months!

By Sky B. February 2019


I absolutely love that Dr. Howell doesn’t rush the process and wants patients to be fully committed on their part with caring for their teeth before getting braces. She does a great job of stressing the importance of dental health.

By Brice B. January 2019


Dr.Howell and her staff are exceptional people. They make you feel right at home. Dr. Howell pays attention to the smallest details in your treatment, which is reassuring. I would recommend this office to anyone looking for a great experience.

By Yami H. December 2018


I can trust Howell Orthodontics to give honest and accurate information while providing the highest quality of care to my family.

By Mason M. November 2018


We had a wonderful first visit! My son was nervous, but you made us both comfortable and welcome. He is already planning to wear his shirt when he comes back in ten months! :)

By Hudson G. October 2018


We had a wonderful visit. I am very impressed with Dr. Howell's knowledge and concern for my children's teeth. The office staff is warm and welcoming and the system for new patients is very well thought out and organized.

By Elizabeth S. September 2018


More than I expected... The staff Dr. Howell has is precious and you can tell they enjoy their jobs and environment. It is felt by their customer service and willingness to spend time with each patient. I appreciate that they talk to and involve the kids.

By Taylor B. August 2018


I will definitely be recommending!!! The entire experience was phenomenal! Wouldn't change a thing!

By Cheyenne D. July 2018


Great Office! From every staff member to the treatment team, everyone is so caring and helpful!

Dr. Howell and her staff are THE BEST! Could not imagine going anywhere else. Knowing that they have the latest technology and training is a huge plus! (if only she were a medical doctor too!!!) and we LOVE the new building

By Natalie S. May 2018

Everyone was so welcoming and kind. Dr. Howell took her time to explain everything and answer questions, which is really important. We are glad we were referred here by our dentist.

By Hannah P. April 2018


Thank you for another great visit to your practice! The level of friendliness and professionalism is outstanding. We look forward to our next appointment.

The staff and Dr. Howell do a great job, not just with the procedures but with customer service. It's a great office, other businesses would benefit from watching and learning from these folks!

By Ximena Y. Febuary 2018

 We enjoy every visit with this team. They are friendly and professional. They explain everything so well. They also explain at every visit how the patient is doing and also what is expected before the next visit.
When we leave their office, we all have had a wonderful experience and look forward to the next.

By Tiffany R. April  2017


Dr. Howell and her staff are always friendly and professional. You never feel as if you're being pushed into treatment or sold anything.  

By Clayton B., March 2017

Dr. Howell is wonderful in monitoring my child's teeth. She uses her expertise to prevent him from wearing braces twice. I appreciate her concern with parents not having to over spend to have their child's teeth straightened.

By Cole G, March 2nd, 2017

I cannot say enough about the care and compassion that the ladies in this office show to our family! The whole office! I currently have two children who are in braces and I'm so glad I chose this office! Dr. Howell is always so kind, and makes my children feel so comfortable when she see them. She is beautiful inside and out and has a real heart for what she does! She takes care of my children like they are her own, and it makes me feel like they are getting the best orthodontic care there is! Without a doubt the best orthodontist ever!

By Clay E., February 15, 2017

Everyone in the office is always so friendly & helpful! We are always treated with kindness and respect! We have already seen massive improvements halfway through Angel's treatment. New office is beautiful and accommodating! Truly no complaints!
By Angel H. February 7, 2017  

Everyone is pleasant and very helpful and knowledgeable. Made the experience for my granddaughter who was very nervous and informative yet pleasant visit.
By Nevaeh C. January 17, 2017

By Logan D. January 16, 2017

I was very impressed! Everyone was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Teamwork was awesome! I loved the office! No complaints at all! I would highly recommend this office! Thanks for making our visit enjoyable!

By Morgan H., December 2, 2016

Dr. Howell is an exceptional orthodontist who cares for the entire patient: mind, body, and soul. There is no one else who I would trust with our daughter's smile.

By Catherine S., November 17, 2016

There is no other orthodontist and staff who are more professional, courteous, or friendly than Dr. Howell and her staff. My children's teeth look amazing, and in a relatively short period of time! I continue to recommend Dr. Howell to all my friends!

By Robin S., October 4, 2016

This orthodontic office is amazing. The new building is professional, beautiful, and closer to my home. The staff is always courteous, helpful, and nice. Dr. Howell is an amazing doctor. She does all she can to help you and your child be comfortable.

By Sadie S., September 20, 2016

We feel exceptionally confident that our expectations will be met! Personally, I've never been in a medical facility that catered to the patient, parents, and community as wonderful as yours.

By Caleb H., March, 17 2016

We love Dr. Howell and the staff at Howell Orthodontics! Dr. Howell gave us a free consultation when my daughter was very young and followed her until she was ready for an orthodontic appliance, without charging us a penny! Once she was ready for her orthodontic appliance, they quoted us a reasonable amount, which covered all expenses, and then continued to follow her until the appliance had done its job. While my daughter may still need some minor orthodontic work, because of Dr. Howell's expertise and preventive orthodontic care, she may not even have to have braces! Their office is organized and timely. They send us email and text reminders, which we signed up for, and always get us in and out in a time effective manner. We cannot say enough good things about their positive, caring orthodontic care!! Dr. Howell is the best!

By Mandy M., January 20 2016

I am so glad I chose to see Dr. Howell. The staff was friendly and made us feel welcomed. Dr. Howell spent time explaining the treatment my son will need. You can tell she loves what she does and she is dedicated to her patients and profession. Thank you!

By Carsen S., December 3, 2015

Dr. Howell and her staff are kind, professional, and truly care about our family! They never fail to ask about our lives and how we have been, taking a genuine care about us, not just our teeth. Add that to AMAZING orthodontics and you've got a win!

By Johnathon N., September 20, 2015

After hearing numerous stories of the fantastic service and outcomes received at Howell Orthodontics and the many community events at which I have seen Dr. Howell, it is finally time for me to share my experiences. From the initial phone call to set up my son's first appointment, I was greeted warmly, had all of my questions answered, and felt completely comfortable with the experiences here. It absolutely feels like home. Every appointment has been fantastic: Thorough and detailed in the plans for orthodontic care; reward program for grades and healthy habits; community service to offset some of the cost (although already very affordable); easy payment plans; a staff that is very in tune with the community and care of adults and children.

By Jasmine M., April 2015

All Smiles

I am super excited to return on my next visit! I will finally be finished with my treatment. Being older, it is sometimes awkward to come into an office filled mostly with patients the ages of my children, but Dr. Howell and her staff always are professional and courteous, making me feel right at home. Can't wait for a few more weeks to sport the new smile!

By William, November 19, 2013

Wonderful group of people

Dr. Howell is always friendly and caring. She takes her time with you; we never feel rushed. Her office is inviting. Feels like home when you are there. Have recommended several friends already.

By Alyssa, November 19, 2013

 Caring Office

We enjoy our visits with Howell Orthodontics; everyone is friendly and warm, greeting you by name when you arrive for your appointments. Appointments run on schedule making it easy to plan your day. There are lots of perks (gift cards, drawings, etc.) and incentives for the kids to brush well, follow the rules (no chewing ice!), which makes it fun for them and assures that parents get the results they pay for in a timely manner. We are very happy that we chose Dr. Howell and her office for our daughter's braces.

By Emme, November 8, 2013

 Love Howell Ortho!!

Dr. Howell's office is wonderful. Not only are they the best staff, but they also participate in the community by giving back. Dr. Howell truly cares about her patients. She always explains everything very thoroughly. The entire staff is caring and compassionate. They also are involved in teaching high school students about orthodontics. It is such a breath of fresh air to be a patient of an office that cares so much about the community.

By Angie V., October 8, 2013


Dr. Howell and staff show excellence in all aspects of orthodontics. We have been impressed from the initial visit to begin treatment, throughout the treatment process, and currently after the braces and into retainers. Thank you for giving great orthodontic care!

By Jeff and Jordan, October 2, 2013

Amazing Staff at Howell Orthodontics

The staff at Howell Orthodontics is friendly, efficient, and caring. The open door policy does a great job of ensuring you know what is going on with your child, and allows you to ask questions at will. The best part is Dr. Howell; she is so friendly, knowledgeable and always has a positive, happy smile on her face. She makes the practice so homey and happy.

By Sadie, October 1, 2013

 Great orthodontist!!

Really cares for her patients!!! Dr. Howell is a great orthodontist. She really cares for her patients and provides incentives to ensure that they do well. This is our second child to get braces and I wouldn't think of going anywhere else.

By Brandon, September 24, 2013

Great experience for my seven-year-old

From the moment I walked in the office, it was a great experience. They were prompt to get us back, but Dr. Howell took her time with my shy seven-year-old. She made her feel at ease, and me too. I would highly recommend this office to anyone. Thank you!

By Carly H., August 22, 2013

Hands down, the BEST ortho practice

My family has been using Howell Orthodontics for a pretty long time and can't recommend them highly enough! Five stars is too low! Dr. Howell and her entire staff are sweet, friendly, kind, and considerate of the patient's time. They have great early hours that work well with my work schedule and my children's school schedule. If you are looking for a great orthodontist, look no further! This is the place you need to use!

By Greg B., July 10, 2013

Best Orthodontist Around

Our family lives about 30 minutes away from Dr. Howell's office, but it doesn't matter. I would drive an hour! We went to our free consultation a few months ago because it was just that... Free. We are careful with our money and I wanted to see what our family was in for as far as treatment plans and financially. Dr. Howell and her staff are kind and personable. Honestly, I left wanting to have her braces put on that day! We waited and went to a larger practice for a second opinion. All the allure of coffee bars, iPads, and gaming systems couldn't change that we waited over an hour, felt bullied into treatment, and were completely uncomfortable with the staff. The same treatment was offered at a much higher cost. I called Dr. Howell's office and they got us in that same day so my children wouldn't miss anymore school! I highly recommend this office for their conservative but reasonable treatment plans, their help with financial plans, and overall personability with the patient and family. Hands down the best orthodontist in the area!

By Lillian W., April 30, 2013

Everyone in the office goes out of their way to make us feel welcome and valued. Your office could be a model for other businesses for superior customer service. We love Howell Orthodontics!

A. Pender, October 22, 2012            

We have been very impressed with the professional and very caring way of Dr. Howell and the whole staff. Each visit Dr. Howell explains what she did and what we should expect. I am very happy with the results of the braces, but almost as importantly, you know how much they all care about the patients there. It is so nice to have personal attention.

Jackson K., February 16, 2012

I brought my six-year-old Kaitlyn into the office per a referral from our dentist. The office staff was so professional and courteous from the moment I phoned to make the appointment to the time we arrived and then checked out. Dr. Howell was great with Kaitlyn and then took a good amount of time to explain exactly what was going on with Kaitlyn's teeth and what to expect in the future. There wasn't any pressure or the feeling of being “sold” on a treatment. Dr. Howell actually preferred that we wait and have another evaluation in six months before making any decisions that would be costly. I have to say what a breath of fresh air and enjoyable experience. I have not received such personal medical/dental care in a very long time. You can tell that Dr. Howell and her entire staff truly care about their patients. I look forward to having Dr. Howell treat Kaitlyn and the opportunities that I will have to recommend Dr. Howell to others.

Anonymous, December 6, 2011

Your entire staff has wonderful compassion for what they do. We would like you to know how well we appreciate your service. Keep doing what you are ALL doing! Everyone was so friendly and most helpful with the whole procedure. We all as a family are comfortable with all the procedures that are going to be performed.

K. Roberts, March 17, 2011

I would like to thank you so much for the wonderful experience. I have been so pleased and impressed with all that has taken place. Personal phone calls meant so much. There are not enough good things I can say. Thank you. Looking forward to my younger daughter working with you.

J. Morgan, September 8, 2010

We are very pleased with our experience at Howell Orthodontics. Braces are a large investment for families. We feel that Dr. Howell's practice offers the most up-to-date technology and information for families looking to make this important decision. Dr. Howell's staff is always friendly and professional. The office offers fun incentives for patients. We couldn't be happier with our decision to use Howell Orthodontics for our children.
