About Us

Covington Family Dentistry was established by Dr. Mevlin Baker to provide the Covington community with quality dental services in a warm and welcoming environment. Dr. John Hendricks took over ownership of the practice in late 2012 and, with Dr. Baker, continues to provide the same quality of service our patients have come to expect.

Over the years the practice has grown and expanded to better serve our many patients and their families in the area. We make it our mission to provide every patient with the necessary dental work to help them achieve the smile they have always dreamed of. With a caring staff and state-of-the-art facility, we have been able to fulfill this mission for thousands of patients.

Dr. De Quan F. Bivins

Dr. DeQuan F. Bivins is a humble and respectable dentist, who is very passionate about his profession. Dr. Bivins was raised in a structured environment by his grandparents in rural South Georgia. In 2001, he attended undergrad at Fort Valley State University, where he received a B.S. in Animal Science.

Upon graduating from Fort Valley State, Dr. Bivins was accepted to Howard University College of Dentistry in Washington, D.C., where he excelled as a dental student. In 2005, he graduated with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery.

After graduation, Dr. Bivins went directly into his private practice, working and serving the public in Washington, D.C., for two and a half years. Dr. Bivins worked in the underserved areas of D.C., where he observed an abundance of neglected dental health, a lack of dental health knowledge and a lack of awareness regarding the importance of good dental health.

In these formative years working in D.C., Dr. Bivins realized that his purpose in life was to serve the public, providing high quality dental health care while raising awareness of the importance of good oral hygiene. From there, his passion only grew.

In 2007, Dr. Bivins returned to his home state of Georgia in order to provide private practice dental services to patients within his community and beyond. He is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Georgia Dental Association, the International Association for Orthodontics, and the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (D.O.C.S.). Additionally, Dr. Bivins has completed countless continuing education courses over his 10 year career. The knowledge gained from these courses has increased Dr. Bivins’ capacity to treat complex cases and to provide more specialty services to his patients. Dr. Bivins is very happy to be home and hopes that he can gain the trust of the citizens within the communities of Georgia, so that he can provide them with the dental services they need and deserve.
