I had been going to another dentist and found out I needed two crowns. I wasn't comfortable with the level of expertise so called Lane and Associates based on their ratings and Dr Howard's credentials and experience. They got me in within 2 days for consultation and did my crown the following week. Dr Howard is a godsend! He is an expert at numbing you so you feel no pain and carefully explains everything he is doing. I've already recommended him to two friends! Mary O'Donnell, Cary, NC

Dr. Howard is an excellent dentist! He is so kind and gentle. He takes the time to sit down and give you all the options available. I had a sleep appliance for sleep apnea for a few years and he informed me of other appliances available now so I got a new and improved version that I LOVE! It is so much easier to put in and clean. Cleanings are easy and I leave in a fantastic mood. Nothing to be nervous about with Dr. Howard. Oh, did I mention FREE teeth whitening and FREE SPA services? :-)

TL;DR: Alicia, Aubrey, Melissa, and Dr. Howard are amazing. Fantastic office and staff- even for a denist-phobe. I have not been to a dentist in over 10 years (even though I knew I had cavities) because of my severe fear of the dentist. Last week, I called around to see if anyone could get me in same day because I was having some issues with pain and just really needed to get in and be cleaned and assessed. I call quite a few offices and no one could get me in. Aubrey (sp?) answered and alt

It's like what? Unbelievable! Have you ever come out of the dentist office happy and relaxed, content and comfortable with both your dental treatment, staff friendliness and attentiveness and assurance that your dental needs are carefully monitored? I have been a patient with Dr. Lane & Associates for 22 years. Dr. Howard is my Dentist and Michelle is currently my hygienist. This team of professionals are amazing. Their new office in Cary “hits the ball out of the park”!

Can I just say that I had the most amazing experience I’ve ever had at any dentist! I was able to be seen quickly and my problem was immediately resolved. I have had a tooth ache for a couple weeks and Dr. Howard was able to identify the problem and fix it! The office customer service is amazing!

They are the best! I moved out of North Carolina two years ago and drive back twice a year to see Dr. Howard. I have complete confidence in him and the peace of mind is well worth the trip. The entire practice is extremely helpful and accommodating. Their honesty and integrity are unmatched.

Dr. Howard and his awesome team at Dr. Lane & Assoc. are the best of the best! I had a cracked tooth that evolved into my first root canal/crown, and I felt NO PAIN throughout the entire procedures. Phenomenally satisfied with my dental treatment and service by Dr. Howard and his team.

Courtney is the best hygienist I ever had, and if Dr. Howard ever retires, I may never go back to the dentist again. He's the best of the best!!

Dr. Howard called me on the night of my surgery. How often does a doctor do that? That shows me how much Dr. Howard cares about his patients and their well being.
