Joan Howanitz, DDS, MS
Q What can patients expect from a visit to your office?
A At North Bethesda Periodontal Group, we believe in a team approach to care. My husband and I have been practicing together for over 15 years, working closely with referring restorative doctors and dental specialists to provide optimal treatment and results for our patients in a welcoming and relaxing environment. Everything we do is guided by accuracy, safety, comfort and recovery.
Q What advice do you have for women just starting out?
A Maintaining a work-life balance is challenging, especially as co-owner of a practice, but you can pursue a successful periodontal career without sacrificing other areas of your life. Seeing my work’s positive impact on patients’ lives, helping them achieve periodontal health and thus, better overall health, makes it all worth it.
