Benjamin F. Lowe, Jr., DDS, MS
I absolutely love being an orthodontist. I can't imagine myself doing anything else. As a 14 year old with crooked teeth who never liked to smile, I was blessed with the opportunity to get my teeth straightened with braces. My self-confidence soared and, needless to say, that experience has had a major impact on the rest of my life. Now, after many years in my profession, I continue to be amazed at the difference orthodontic treatment can make in a person's life. I am so fortunate to be able to play a role in creating beautiful smiles for my patients' smiles that are often as big on the inside as they are on the outside. My patients mean the world to me and our practice is committed to providing them with the best possible orthodontic treatment in a caring, friendly and fun environment.
Education and Continuing Education
I attended the College of William and Mary and graduated with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics. I have always wanted to help make a positive difference in the lives of those around me, so pursuing an education in the dental field was an obvious next step. I earned both my Doctorate of Dental Surgery and Master of Science degree in Orthodontics from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
By participating in continuing education courses year round, I am able to stay current on the latest technology and orthodontic treatments. My patients deserve the best, and continuing education allows me to provide my patients with more options, better results and faster treatment times.
I believe that staying involved in the greater dental and orthodontic communities is very important, and I am an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the UNC Orthodontic Alumni Association, the North Carolina Association of Orthodontists and the American Dental Association.
In the Community
I am blessed to be a part of and serve such a wonderful community. I am a member and Sunday school teacher at St. Mark's Church, on the Alamance County Young Life Committee, am a YMCA youth basketball coach, and serve on the advisory board of the Carolina Bank.
Outside the Office
The most important thing to know about me is that I am a devoted follower of Jesus Christ and I try my best to honor Him in all my endeavors, both personal and professional. My wife, Suzie, and I have been very happily married for over 25 years and we have been blessed with three wonderful children and one crazy yellow lab! We spend much of our free time watching our children participate in their many activities. As a family, we often go to sporting events and concerts together and we enjoy boating and swimming at the lake. I am also an avid golfer and tennis player and I especially enjoy following UNC sports.
