Comprehensive & Personalized Dentistry

At Andover Family Dentistry, we believe that the mouth is a gateway to better overall health. During your visit, we take several things into account: your past dental and medical history, current needs for excellent oral health, and your individual desires regarding your dental treatment. Dr. Howell keeps all these aspects in mind when he makes your treatment recommendations. Our goal is to provide the minimum amount of dentistry to get the maximum oral health benefits possible. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and that is why Dr. Howell and his profressional staff focus their efforts on early diagnosis and routine preventive care to reduce the need for costly and invasive dentistry in the future. Through this personalized approach to care, you can have a life-long beautiful and healthy smile!

Anxious about Dental Treatment? → Learn More

We know that some people feel anxious about dental visits and can even fear going to their dentist in Andover. To help you relax during your treatment, Dr. Howell offers nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. This safe medical gas helps you feel light and calm — some people even giggle. The best part about nitrous oxide is that with just a few minutes of breathing pure oxygen, the effects from the gas are completely reversed. You don’t have to find someone to drive you home after your visit, and you don’t have to use sick time or PTO. You can get back to your normal day immediately following treatment.

We look forward to treating you at Andover Family Dentistry.

Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays emit significantly less radiation than conventional X-rays (some studies show 90% less)! Also, because the images are digital, we can take a look at the X-rays immediately. We can even put them on the computer screen so you can see the images and better understand your oral health.

The intraoral camera is a pen-shaped camera that records images of your teeth and gums. As we talk about your teeth, you can see the images on the computer screen above your head. Dr. Howell can walk you through your exam tooth-by-tooth explaining any areas of concern. With this camera, you are finally able to be an active participant in your dental visits.

We look forward to treating you at Andover Family Dentistry.
