Dr. Lowe feels very fortunate to have the opportunity to practice the dental specialty of periodontology. The unique combination of biology, engineering, and art drew him to the field. Dr. Lowe focuses on communication with your dentist and using the latest techniques and technology to achieve the most esthetic outcome.

Priority is given toward empowering patients through education on prevention and long-term oral health.
"I aim to make recommendations and provide treatment as I would for my own family. Utilizing the latest technology and techniques, I work to provide the best possible outcome and experience while here in the practice.
As part of your treatment, I will help you to understand what is going on in your mouth and provide the information you’ll need to make decisions regarding your oral health."
EDUCATION, RESEARCH & TEACHING
University of Minnesota – Certificate in Periodontics
University of Minnesota - Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS)
University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire – Bachelor of Science – Biology
The University of Minnesota is one of the premier dental and periodontal schools in the nation.
Throughout his education, Dr. Lowe pursued research in oral cancer and jaw development with world renowned oral pathologists, Michael Rohrer and Raj Gopalakrishnan. A foundation in healthcare research and volunteering at the Union Gospel Mission led him toward the scientific and surgical aspects provided by periodontics.
Advanced Training & Skills
The periodontal specialty is known for its focus on esthetics and overall health. Techniques and procedures unique to the field include regeneration of lost gum tissue and bone. This is significant as natural tissue is brought back to its original state rather than being replaced. Dr. Lowe has had an additional three years of training at the University of Minnesota in diagnosis and treatment, soft tissue grafting, dental implants, and bone grafting. The dentists at Twin Cities Periodontics limit their practice to periodontics, setting the stage for optimal esthetics and long-term health and maintenance.
Dr. Lowe enjoys teaching and spreading his enthusiasm for periodontics. He has been an instructor at the University of Minnesota Dental School and has taught general practice residents at the Minneapolis Veterans Administration. His varied clinical experience has expanded his expertise in the latest surgical, regenerative, and implant placement techniques.
