    Dr. Maxine How is such a wonderful dentist! I had the best experience I’ve ever had at a dental office yesterday at Country Dental. It was my first time going to Country Dental. All of the receptionists I spoke with leading up to my appointment were so easy to speak to and went above and beyond to accommodate me. Rose at reception is so sweet and organized - she took the time to ensure I would be able to make it to my next appointment and helped me understand my insurance coverage. I really appreciated her patience and time she spent with me. Dr. How is such a personable and professional dentist. She is so friendly and relatable, and even made me laugh! She made me feel at ease and my nerves disappeared. There is a screen on the ceiling that was a great distraction while I was getting my exam and cleaning. Dr. How was very thorough and took the time to explain everything she was doing as she was doing it and made sure I was always comfortable. It was so easy to understand the information she was relaying to me about my oral health. I also appreciated that Dr. How did not try to sell me on any additional services I did not need. Dr. How’s assistant Stephanie was also so awesome and made sure Dr. How was able to complete the exam and cleaning so smoothly! I left with a clean mouth and a smile on my face. I’m so happy I found Country Dental and Dr. How, and for the first time in 30 years I am actually not dreading going back to the dentist. Rose, Dr. How, and Stephanie are such positive people and such a refreshing change to be around! I highly recommend visiting Dr. How, you will not regret it!
