We are very pleased to introduce our new associate, Dr. William J. Lowrey, who joined our team in October 2018. Dr. Lowrey’s clinical expertise, calm and confident demeanor, and excellent communication skills make him a natural fit for our office. Patients have been quick to comment on Dr. Lowrey’s ability to deliver individualized and clear answers to treatment questions asked chairside in hygiene appointments, as well as his gentle and efficient handling of restorative appointments.
Dr. Lowrey grew up in Strafford, Vermont and attended Muhlenberg College in Pennsylvania, earning his degree in Environmental Science with a minor in Sustainable Solutions. He ran varsity cross-country and track all four years in college, and had an interesting internship working at the Lehigh Valley Zoo for one summer. Following the footsteps of his grandfather, great-grandfather, and great-great grandfather, Dr. Lowrey decided to pursue dentistry as his career. He attended the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, graduating with honors in Medically Complex Care. He was also awarded the Psi Omega Arthur Steinberg Award for dental excellence. Following dental school, Dr. Lowrey completed one year of a hospital-based General Practice Residency at Lehigh Valley Hospital Muhlenberg. During this residency, he received advanced training in emergency, surgical, endodontic, and other dental specialties while learning how to manage critically ill dental patients in a hospital setting.
Dr. Lowrey is passionate about continuing education. He is a member of the American Dental Association, Washington State Dental Association, Seattle-King County Dental Society, and the First Hill Study Club. He has also attended recent courses by Dr. Tom Kang's Study Club in Federal Way, and Dr. Jim Janikievski’s Study Club in Tacoma.
Dr. Lowrey is excited to be living in the Pacific Northwest. His love for Seattle and the surrounding natural beauty is what brought him to this coast, and when not in the office, you might find him at a Seattle Sounders games, running on the Burke-Gilman trail, or hiking or skiing in the mountains.
