Marcus Lowry, DDS
While I love creating attractive, healthy smiles, I am especially passionate about the benefits beyond the smile. It is amazing to me to see how making a straight and beautiful smile increases one’s self confidence and can completely change your outlook on life. I love being a part of that! With meticulous attention to detail and individualized care for each patient, my patients can rest assured that they are receiving outstanding orthodontic care.
Education and Experience
As an Idaho native, I was born and raised in Boise and graduated from Borah High School. After earning my Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Brigham Young University, I attended dental school at the University of Washington, graduating at the top of my class with my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.
After working as a general dentist for a year in Boise and Nampa, I went on to specialize in orthodontics at the University of Rochester, Eastman Dental Center. While there, I was able to take part in advanced and extremely challenging orthodontic cases including patients with cleft lip and palate and patients with other facial irregularities. As part of my education, I also completed extensive research on expansion of teeth during orthodontic treatment.
In the Orthodontic Community
I maintain memberships with the American Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, Idaho Dental Association, and Southwest Idaho Dental Association. I take special interest in cutting edge technology and innovations that decrease discomfort and treatment times associated with orthodontic care. I am also interested in providing my patients with treatment that will produce the best long term results.
Outside the Office
I am thrilled to be back in Idaho, in a community that I love, to raise my family. When away from the office, I spend my free time outdoors sharing my love of nature with my wife, Alicia, and our four children. I love running and swimming. Recently, I've taken up cycling and have enjoyed competing in a number of local triathlons.
