About 10 years ago I was becoming very unsatisfied with my previous dentist. I then was reffered to Dr. Lowrey. He is very nice, remembers you as a person, not just a patient. His staff is very friendly and gentle with you. I've had several fillings in my life, and he numbs you the most painless. Then he asks you to rate how it was, so that he can improve. Most dentists are just old farts that do the same thing they've been used to, but he's willing to make changes or improvements.
