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.

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!!

Dr. Kotkin is in a league of his own. His professional expertise coupled with his welcoming, sincere and humorous ways always makes our visit to the dentist more than just about teeth. Dr. Kotkin is always down to earth and easy to be around. He is a role model to everyone.

Have been going to Dr. Kotkin for 13 years and have never had one complaint. I mixed up an appt. time and Dr. Kotkin said "no problem" and took my son immediately. The staff is exceptional, they are always courteous and friendly. My son always enjoys going !!

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!

After spending 7 years in London it felt like we never left. The entire team continues to be fabulous. Our kids actually enjoy visiting and my husband and I feel confident and informed.

Dr. Howie and his staff are the utmost professionals. They are warm, caring, attentive, and strive towards making kids have the best dental experience they can at an early age. Dr. Howie always makes himself available in emergencies and his calm demeanor, experience as a parent himself and knowledge of the dental industry are amazing.
Jan 11, 2017
My children have been patients of Dr. Kotkin for 13 years, and the practice is just as fantastic as it was back then. Everyone continues to be wonderful!!

Dr. HoKo is the GREATEST!

Dr. Kotkin's relationship with my children is FANTASTIC. He is kind, funny, warm and makes going to the dentist a fun experience for kids. I have one child who is very resistant to having his teeth cleaned, but Dr. Kotkin get him (and some anxious parents) through it in a way that has us all smiling by the time we leave. I couldn't give him a higher recommendation!
Oct 24, 2016
5 stars hand down. My busy 2.5 year old wasn't so keen on being in the office while the Dr. spoke with me about everything I needed to know to keep my son's teeth cavity free etc so the other staff played with him for 30+ minutes so I could concentrate! He made it a friendly and fun atmosphere and we look forward to going back for years to come! Thanks Dr. Howie!

My son first visited Dr. Howie after banging a baby tooth on a window sill at the age of 2. Within minutes of meeting Dr. Howie I knew he was in the most capable of hands. That first visit was 14 years ago and every visit since has been the same. Professional, nurturing and positive experience every time. The best dental care hand down.
Sep 22, 2016
Dr. Kotkin was able to fit my son in on rather short notice. He was thorough in explaining the dreaded next step....braces...and he gave several recommendations! He also squeezed in my other 2 children who did not have appointments so I did not have to come back. Thanks Dr. Kotkin!

Howard runs a practice that is both flexible and professional. Under his cheerful and gregarious manner is a serious medical professional. He is able to put kids at their ease, and both he and his staff make kids feel welcome, safe, and comfortable during even the most serious procedures. They make an effort to listen to and address each child's feelings. The woman who handles the billing, scheduling, reception and phone calls is efficient and organized, and in the 10 years since my three kids started seeing Howard, we have had only positive experiences and outcomes.
