Dr. Howard Babushkin, DDS
Dentistry is an “artistic science” that merges two of Dr. Babushkin’s biggest interests. Because he is also a nervous dental patient, he completely understands what it’s like to be nervous and anxious while you’re sitting in a dental chair.
Today, after more than two decades as a practicing dentist, this is still a source of his commitment to service and total comfort. He strongly believes that you need to trust your dentist to do the right thing, and it’s been his mission to earn that trust with everything he does since he began practicing in 1993.
Dentistry allows Dr. Babushkin not only to improve his patients’ lives, both functionally and aesthetically, but also to form strong friendships. He enjoys all the different personalities and ages that come through our door. He tries hard to make everyone’s experience as pleasant as possible by doing his work quickly and thoroughly while using the latest in dental technology. He strives to be warm and compassionate, both personally and professionally, and truly feels accountable for our patients’ well-being.
