Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?

Dr. Rafford and fiance Garrett

Dr. Howze is married to a wonderful man named Garrett Howze. In fact, they met in dental school while buying food from a sandwich shop on campus! Together, they have a cat fur baby named Winston. Outside of the dental office, you can usually find her enjoying an early morning cup of coffee on the porch, doing Pilates, running, listening to live Texas country music, and showing off her dance moves. Her fiancé is an outdoorsman, so she is also slowly learning the ropes of fishing and hunting.
