At Mazzawi Dental Intown, we are proud to continue the tradition of excellent care provided by our legendary predecessors, Dr. "Gentle" Dan Nable and Dr. Maxwell Ferguson. Growing up in a dental family, Drs. Matt and Megan Mazzawi, were raised by dental spouses, Drs. Hugh and Anne Mazzawi. They began working in their parents' Snellville dental practice as teenagers. They now meld these two great dental traditions together in the Atlanta practice.

We are always welcoming new patients and we would love to have you as part of our dental family. Please explore our web site to learn more about us. You can find information about our staff, our office, and the procedures and services that we offer.
