An Update on Tradition

The Legacy of Walter G. Howell

Dr. Walter G. Howell began his practice in 1989 with the intention of cultivating a family-oriented, traditional dental practice environment. Throughout the years, Dr. Howell and his team delivered high-quality, personalized care to the community. After retiring in 2021, Dr. Howell decided to pass down the torch to Dr. Jah. Both Dr. Howell and Dr. Jah share the same passion for providing exceptional dentistry with a focus on education so patients can take control of their oral and whole-body health.

Meet Your Dentist

Dr. Tariq Jah

Originally from Prince George's County, Maryland, Dr. Tariq Jah grew up always knowing he wanted to be in the healthcare industry. After observing some surgeries through his mother’s job in administration at a local hospital, Dr. Jah was fascinated but wanted to be able to develop lasting relationships with patients. After a teacher introduced him to dentistry, Dr. Jah got the opportunity to work in a dental office as a sterilization tech while in high school. There, his love for his career in dentistry was born. Dr. Jah later went on to attend the University of Maryland for his Bachelor’s in Cell Biology and Genetics, the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill Adams School of Dentistry, where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery.

Dr. Jah’s family is originally from Sierra Leone and has seven siblings, so he understands the importance of a family-oriented environment. When not in the office, he loves trying out local restaurants, hitting the gym before work, traveling, reading, and hanging with his poodle Kobe — a frequent visitor of the Evergreen Dental Co. office!
