Dr. Benjamin 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. 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.

Dr. Katie Clark

Dr. Katie Clark was born and raised in Maine. She attended the University of Maine, graduating at the top of her class with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Following graduation, Dr. Clark went on to earn her D.M.D. degree from the University of New England.

Becoming a dentist has been Dr. Clark’s dream career since she saw a change in her own smile through orthodontics during her early teen years. Katie recalls being self-conscious of her smile growing up and enjoyed going to her dental appointments with the knowledge she was one step closer to a beautiful smile. Although Dr. Clark was only 15 years old at the time, she knew helping others confidence in their own smiles was her calling, and she is proud to realize her lifelong goal as a certified dentist.

Dr. Clark is dedicated to researching modern dental trends to provide the best, individualized care to her patients. Dentistry is not just a career, but a passion for Dr. Clark with a focus on providing a comfortable experience for patients who want to achieve their dream smile.

In her free time, Dr. Clark enjoys playing with her dog Boomer, trying new restaurants in Portland, and trying new recipes in the kitchen (suggestions are always welcome). An avid lover of all Maine’s seasons, her summer activities find her enjoying time by the water and in winter, snowmobiling with her family or attempting to ski.
