In 1967, Dr. Hugh Mazzawi opened a dental practice in Snellville, the home of his beautiful new bride. Dr. Anne joined the practice after completing her dental education. Both graduates of Emory University School of Dentistry, the Mazzawis set out to bring the best in oral health care to rural Georgia. Their plan was to care for the community, not just teeth. They did exactly that and along the way, instilled the same desire into their children. As the surrounding area grew and flourished, so did the practice. Patients became part of the family.
