Jaha Howard, DDS, MS

Board Certified Pediatric Dentist

Doctor Jaha Howard is a different kind of dentist. With his kid-oriented style and fun personality, he gets children excited about their dental care and helps them to develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime. It’s his goal to provide an exceptional dental home for children of all social, ethnic, and medical backgrounds that fosters a warm environment while promoting practical oral health education for families.

After receiving his doctorate from Howard University, Dr. Howard completed his residency at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he earned status as a specialist in pediatric dentistry—a distinction achieved by fewer than 3 percent of all dentists. Each year, Dr. Howard continues to study advanced children’s dentistry alongside the nation’s foremost pediatric dentists. But most importantly, he takes the time to get to know each child personally, communicating with parents and children to create a unique dental experience that leaves children eager to return.

Dr. Howard grew up right here in Atlanta. He and his wife, Vanessa have three children (Garrison, Joy Gabrielle and Abram). Dr. Howard founded "Wave of Excellence" for parents in Smyrna public schools. He often makes fun-filled appearances at local schools where he educates children on the importance of a healthy smile. Dr. Howard also has the pleasure of serving as a deacon at the West End Church of Christ.

Our Services

Children’s Care

From infants to teens, our skilled dental team is familiar with the unique needs of every patient, no matter their age. Our goal is to help them develop great oral habits that will last them a lifetime.

Digital X-Rays

Our use of digital x-ray technology reduces radiation exposure and eliminates the use of chemicals. It’s better for your child and the environment. It's also easy to see what the doctor sees, and make informed choices about treatment.

Professional Cleanings

Professional cleanings form the foundation for preventing gum disease and tooth decay. We provide a gentle and thorough cleaning of the teeth and mouth and finish with a polish that removes stains from your child’s teeth.

Dental Fillings

The common silver filling contains mercury. Our doctor uses the highest-quality biocompatible, tooth-colored restorations to create healthy, beautiful smiles without all of the prep-work associated with traditional fillings.


Protect and keep badly decayed or fractured teeth while maintaining a beautiful smile. Made to perfectly match the shape and shade of your other teeth, they’re durable, strong, and undetectable.

Patient Comfort

Our office was designed with your child in mind. Our unique atmosphere helps children relax and enjoy their dental experience. Children deserve to experience a gentle, caring approach to dental care.
