Despite having an extremely busy family life with their four children (son Stone, born 2001, daughter Scarlett, born 2002, daughter Reese, born 2008, and son Austin, born 2010), Drs. Tom and Susan Reilly really enjoy giving back to the community with their gift of dentistry. They participate locally in the Cobb Assistance Program for needy children with dental issues.
