Your Home For Dental Care

It’s easy to find a dentist to visit once -- just take a peek through the yellow pages or do a quick Google search. But taking the time to find a dentist you and your family will look forward to visiting again and again is the best way to protect your smile and promote better oral health over a lifetime. At Columbia Healthy Smiles, Dr. Philip A. Batson, Dr. Elizabeth Abe and our team provide the comprehensive dental services that keep smiles of all ages and stages of life happy and healthy.

The Dentist Columbia Families Trust

Patients in central Missouri have trusted the Batson family with their smiles for over 40 years. Dr. Philip A. Batson continues his father’s legacy with his work at Columbia Healthy Smiles. He graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry and is pleased to be back in Columbia serving his hometown community. To ensure he continues to provide the ultimate in dental care for our region, Dr. Batson stays active and involved in the dental field through his engagement in the American Dental Association, Missouri Dental Association, Central Dental Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry.

Families and friends in and around the 65203 zip code know they can trust Dr. Batson with their smiles -- and you can, too!
