Hinesville—  Howard Family Dental is pleased to announce that Dr. Bre’on M.

“My passion for caring for others stems from growing up in an underserved community and from facing a few health battles of my own,” said Dr. Anderson. “I was determined to enter a career path that would allow me to take care of my community and promote a healthy lifestyle among my patients. I look forward to doing so in Hinesville and to developing relationships with my patients to help them achieve their optimal oral health goals.”
