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!

    Lawanda is the best next to Dr. Simms!!! Very friendly and makes sure you have everything you need before and after service! Glad I found a place that works for me after my other dentist retired!

    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.
