Creating Straighter Smiles in Lancaster for 20 Years

Dr. Howard and his expert hometown team have given Lancaster County the latest treatments and technology to our community for nearly 20 years.

An Expert Hometown Doctor

Orthodontists like Dr. Eric Howard start out as dentists first. Out of 100 dental school graduates, on average, only six go on to become orthodontists.

To practice orthodontics, Dr. Howard spent 11 years in training (four years of college, four years of dental school, and three years of orthodontics residency).

The orthodontic student spends three years learning the skills needed to manage tooth movement and to guide facial development. You want an expert to give you a new smile—not from aligners you get in the mail.

Your expert orthodontist Dr. Howard also shares his extensive knowledge with dental students and orthodontic residents. He’s a clinical instructor at the University of Pennsylvania where he teaches 3D planning in orthodontics and he’s lectured at numerous schools around the world.

Personalized Customer Service

Your smile is in good hands because our team is devoted to you and your family. From the moment you contact ourWillow Street office to your final retainer check appointment, your satisfaction is our goal.

Dr. Howard will review your photos and X-rays to find the best way to treat your unique orthodontic needs. Then you’ll choose the type of braces you want—traditional metal, clear ceramic, or clear aligners like Invisalign.

At Howard Orthodontics, we always strive to give you the smile of your dreams. We want you to leave our Willow Street office after every visit knowing that you got the best possible care.
