We’ll be your partners in whole mouth health, with specialties in cosmetic, TMJ, and family dentistry. It’s about time to defy your dental expectations.
Meet Dr. Lawlor
Dr. Lawlor graduated from Dalhousie University and is a fellow with the International College of Oral Implantologists. He is proud to be named among America’s Top Dentists in 2016, 2017 and 2018 and to bring his expertise in family and cosmetic dental services to his home state of Maine.
Before becoming a dentist, Dr. Lawlor served in the military and spent over ten years in the Air Force as an avionics specialist and then dental director. During his military tenure, he served overseas on two deployments and received numerous awards including Airman of the Year and the Distinguished Service Medal. Dr. Lawlor continues to serve by providing free dental care to kids and families on service trips to Guatemala.
At Maine Dentistry, Dr. Lawlor has established a unique approach focused on comfort, quality, and no judgment experiences. Dr. Lawlor knew he wanted to become a dentist since he was a kid, and wants everyone to love their dental experiences as much as he did growing up. When he isn’t working on happy smiles, he can be found hiking Cadillac mountain, white water rafting, kiteboarding, or skiing.
