For Dr. Tara L. Howell and her skilled team at Carolina Dental, the daily mission is to offer state-of-the-art dental care in the most pleasant environment. The practice is committed to providing a lifetime of optimal oral health to its patients while striving to build a strong doctor-patient relationship based on mutual trust and excellent customer service.
Carolina Dental offers a “one-stop shop” for all of its patients’ dental needs. Referrals to specialists are rarely needed because Dr. Howell is able to perform most dental treatments in the office, including single implant placements and final restoration of implants. The practice provides needle-less dentistry, digital impressions, and a soft tissue laser that enables Dr. Howell to incorporate dental procedures that many practices would have to refer to specialists.
Dr. Howell and her staff of caring, experienced professionals deliver clinical care with green innovation to reduce the environmental footprint. For example, they utilize green technology in their radiograph system. The practice’s radiographs have innovative technology that offer an ultra-low X-ray dose that protects both patient and user.
Patients always come first for Dr. Howell and her staff, who believe in the concept of “treat others as you wish to be treated.” The office participates in all major insurance plans and offers its own in-house discount plan for uninsured patients. Carolina Dental also works with outside financing such as CareCredit and LendingClub to help make dental treatment affordable for all patients.
Patients rave about the excellent care they receive from Dr. Howell. “I have had many dentists in my life but never one who cared so much about how your teeth looked,” one patient review says. “She is definitely a perfectionist and has always made sure all the work done on my teeth was 100 percent perfect. I used to smile and laugh with my hand over my mouth many years ago— not anymore. I truly love her and what she has done to better my life.”
