One of our goals is to provide quality care in a non-threatening, comfortable, family environment.

Long-term relationships

Because we care for our patients like the friends and neighbors they are, we take a long-term view of our patient relationships.

Leading-edge technology

Howland & Lacey Family Dental has in-house technology that is simply not available in most dental practices in Carbon County.


Our office is staffed entirely by Carbon County residents, with several of our staffers working as part of our team for more than 20 years.

My smile is brilliant thanks to Drs. Howland & Lacey.

I would recommend Howland & Lacey Family Dental to anyone.

Howland & Lacey Family Dental

Lehighton, PA

Since its beginnings as Jan. D. Gulden DMD PC nearly 40 years ago, the Howland & Lacey Family Dental practice in Lehighton, Carbon County, Pennsylvania, has specialized in providing the highest level of dental care.

We specialize in crowns, bridges, implants, and cosmetic dentistry, with services extending to pediatric dentistry, dentures, veneers, white fillings, root canals, and extractions. We even offer digital radiography, an environmentally friendly option that reduces exposure to harmful x-rays.

Drs. Howland & Lacey are joined entirely by a staff of Carbon County residents, some of whom have been employed by the practice for more than 20 years—proof that you won’t find a “revolving-door” when it comes to our friendly, capable dentists and hygienists. We will always choose quality over quantity, we take a long-term view of our patient relationships, and we hope to be your dental provider for years to come.

As part of this approach, we allow patients to participate in selecting a course of action when it comes to treatment planning. It’s all about flexibility. In many cases, there is more than treatment option, and we do our best to develop treatment plans that are affordable, timely, and of the highest quality. In some cases we can even discuss being proactive vs. reactive in order to make your treatment plan match your individual needs.

Drs. Howland & Lacey believe firmly that getting a dental degree is just the start; practicing dentistry requires continuous study in order to stay abreast of emerging technologies and provide the best patient care.

As a result, we use leading-edge technology to make diagnosis and treatment as timely as possible. In fact, Howland & Lacey Family Dental has in-house technology that is simply not available in most dental practices in Carbon County, including digital radiography (intraoral and panoramic) capabilities, as well as equipment from Cerec, A-dec, Ivoclar Vivadent and more.
