Dr. Robert A. Lowe, DDS, has been named the 2004 Christensen Award winner, in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the dental profession. Still a practicing clinician Dr. Lowe is a frequent lecturer at the Chicago Dental Society's Midwinter Meeting and conferences around the world.
A 1982 graduate of the Loyola University School of Dentistry, Dr. Lowe served as an assistant professor of operative dentistry at Loyola until it closed in July 1993. Now part of an aesthetic practice in Charlotte, NC, Dr. Lowe continues to lecture internationally on aesthetic and restorative dentistry.
“My approach is grounded in the philosophy that you can't divorce aesthetics from function,” Dr. Lowe said. “I try to offer a lot of step-by-step instruction in the how-to, so that doctors can take the information and apply in the office tomorrow.”
Dr. Lowe will share some of his clinical experiences—both the successes and the unexpected setbacks—during a course entitled The Practical Art of Dental Aesthetics: Advances in Technology, Materials and Techniques Friday afternoon.
The Christensen Award is bestowed annually to a dentist who “exemplifies conscientious loyalty to the profession and demonstrates the potential to be one of the future great teachers of restorative dentistry. The award was established in 1990 to recognize the many contributions made to dentistry, and to the Midwinter Meeting in particular, by Gordon J. Christensen, DDS
