About Our Office

Providing the Highest Standard of Dentistry

Covington Family Dentistry was established in 1976 by Dr. Melvin Baker, with the goal of providing the people of Covington, GA and surrounding areas with quality dental services in a warm, welcoming environment. In late 2012, Dr. John Hendricks took over ownership of the practice, and as of late 2017, Dr. Doreen C. Wilson purchased the practice. We continue to provide the same quality of service and care for each of our patients.

Our practice has since grown and expanded to better serve our patients and their families. Our mission is to provide the highest standard in preventative, restorative and cosmetic dental services, to help you have a healthy, beautiful smile for a lifetime.
