Absolute BEST pediatric dentist!

Dr. Howie is great with kids and parents even during COVID. Even though I felt apprehensive about taking the kids to the dentist, Dr. Howie and his staff took all the necessary precautions to make every safe. There was a temperature check in prior to entering the building, waiting room seats spaced out (reserved for Ariana Grande), glass partitions between dental chairs, one family at a time in the office, face shields and masks all around. Thank you!

Dr. Howie and his staff have been amazing with our kids for the last 12 years. The staff is friendly, warm and funny. Dr. Howie is the king of dad jokes, making visits anything but boring for kids, or their parents! The office runs so smoothly--we've never waited long at an appointment to be seen. Dr. Howie and his staff are also incredibly thorough and professional. Their recommendations for anything dental or orthodonture related have always been accurate. Can't recommend Dr. Howie and his staff enough!

First dental visit was easy and fun! My older children have been going to Dr Howie for years. The golden coins go a long way with a 2 year old. Even my 9 year old twins look forward to their prizes after a cleaning! The entire staff is friendly, professional and makes for an overall wonderful experience.

We love Dr. Howie and his entire staff! They are so thorough, patient and kind. For my son, it took him some time to get comfortable with going to the dentist. The staff was so patient and on this particular visit, they kept praising my son for how brave and improved he was. You can tell it the whole staff really enjoys what they do and coming to work each day. I highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for a pediatric dentist!

We found Dr. Howie 14 years ago when my oldest son needed dental surgery. Dr. Howie called that evening to be sure he was recovering well and followed up a few days later as well. Now I love bringing my younger son to Dr. Howie and his staff. They are always so positive and cheerful, Dr. Howie has a great sense of humor and makes it fun. He has worked very hard at building a trusting relationship over the years with my son who has some special needs. The staff even asks about the rest of my family, knowing them just from friendly conversation during our visits. They also referred me to my orthodontist, Dr. Rothenberg, with whom we couldn't be more pleased. I can't recommend this practice highly enough.

Dr. Howie Kotkin is amazing with children. We’ve been going to him for two years, since our son was two years old. His positive, welcoming demeanor leaves a lasting impression. My son looks forward to his visits. Although he was a little scared last time (the electronic toothbrush scared him), he still got through the visit and played with toys with Dr. Howie in the waiting room when it was over! When we got home, my son said he missed Dr. Howie! What more could you ask for from a pediatric dentist?! Another bonus: they see you ON TIME every time!

Dr. Howie is great with kids and parents. Kids are always excited to go for their checkups. Dr. Howie takes the time to explain everything in detail and expectations. Morning hours are awesome and lots of personalized attention.

Dr Howie and his team are truly wonderful. They are so great with our daughter. On a recent visit Dr Howie checked her out after an injury and went above and beyond, he totally put her and us at ease. We love him!

What a great staff! Very personal tough from Dr. Howie down to all the other staff members that we met that day. Very honest and caring. And best part...didn't wait one minute! Dr. Howie said if they are running late, they will call and let me know. Who does that these days? Amazing!

Dr. Kotkin is the epitome of professionalism, coupled with care and attentiveness. His sense of humor allows the patient to feel relaxed and smile. From the moment you walk into the office you are greeted with a warm environment displayed by the array of cartoon lithographs and patient photographs.Dr. Howie has established this sense of family for his practice that is inviting and comforting.

Extremely pleasant and comfortable experience. The dentist and the hygienist were very focused on helping my daughter to be comfortable at all time.

Dr. Howie kept our son comfortable and pain-free during his tooth extraction and explained everything he was doing in a calm manner. His sense of humor and thorough explanation reduced any fears we might have had about the procedure. It was over in seconds and a complete success. Thanks Dr. Howie!

We adore Dr. Kotkin. My son never wants to leave after his appointment. Dr. Kotkin treats his patients as if they were his own family.
Jun 8, 2017
As always the entire staff at Dr. Howie's were very professional and pleasant. For a dentist's office where kids (and adults) can get a bit nervous, the environment here is the complete opposite. Everyone - staff, parents, kids - chats with each other making for a friendly and relaxed environment. My daughter always feels at ease here.

My daughter has had several bad experiences with other dentists and is somewhat afraid to have dental care. She immediately felt comfortable with Dr. Howie and enjoyed her experience. She even created a flossing chart so she can show him she's been following his advice. We love Dr. Howie!!

Hands down, Dr. Howie is the best around! My son recently needed six teeth extracted and Dr. Howie made the whole experience a breeze for him. Fantastic attitude and excellent dentist!
