Meet the Doctor
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.
