Devin Draggs was born in Detroit, MI and relocated to Georgia as a child to ensure a better future. I was raised by loving parents in the Decatur/Stone Mountain area and soon developed an eye for detail and a habit of nurturing. Wanting to be a Dentist since a kid led me to Clayton State where I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene in 2013. Aside from being a hygienist I am a chef with my own catering business, a fashion and music junkie, and also a loving daughter, sister, aunt and friend.

Dr. Gary Simms and Team Look Forward to Meeting You!

    Excellent!!! Straight forward! I wish I would have found this Doctor years ago. Everyone was pleasant even the officer manager, everyone is about taking care of business and the patients. The assistant Shay kept checking on me while I waited … More on the Doctor! Would definitely recommend. For fast, straight to the point care and service!!

    The best and most helpful dentist I have ever been to. Dr. Sims is amazing but more importantly his staff has always made me feel welcomed comfortable and knows me by name every time I come in. This is by far the best dentist and staff... … More I would recommend him to anyone I came in to see him feeling pretty hopeless and now I have the most beautiful smile that I could ask for thank you!

    I am very grateful to be a patient at Metro Decatur Dental. Dr. Simms is a dentist who is very knowledgeable and up to date with the latest dental options for his patients. He is also very personable. He genuinely cares and was willing … More to work with me to provide the dental services I needed while taking into consideration my budget! His office Manager Lawanda Ferguson is awesome also! She provided me with the insurance information that I needed to get the best insurance for my dental needs. All of the staff at MDD are professional and caring!

    As a manager that has worked with Dr.Simms for over 14yrs I value my position as an Office Manager to ensure great customer service and patient education that our patients deserve. When that is not exemplified from my front office staff … More changes must be made. As with any job expectations are required and when it becomes clear that those expectations are ignored then the proper changes are taken to protect the company and our brand! I can ensure you that now that we have made changes to our front office staff you will be greeted with a pleasant smile and a warm welcome as you come through the door. Please feel free to come into our office to experience the changes we have made to ensure a pleasant visit.
