Meet Our Wonderful Greater Portland Area Dental Team
Dr. Benjamin Lawlor
Dr. Lawlor is delighted to be part of the Maine Cosmetic Dentistry team. With a meticulous eye for aesthetics, he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience. A Maine native, Dr. Lawlor joined the military out of high school and spent ten years in the Air Force. First as an enlisted avionics specialist, and finally as the dental director for the 101st Air Refueling Wing in Bangor, Maine.
As a boy, Dr. Lawlor spent a lot of time in the dental chair and, like many people, he shared a fear of going to the dental office. His family dentist realized this and won him over with gentle care, compassion and by taking time to explain the different procedures. At the age of 14, Dr. Lawlor knew he wanted to become a dentist someday. Dr. Lawlor is proud to embody these same characteristics towards his own patients and is passionate about treating people with respect and dignity.
Dr. Lawlor spends much of his time seeking out the best techniques, products and gurus in dentistry to bring his patients the most comprehensive and advanced treatment available. When he isn’t improving his dental expertise, he can be found hiking Cadillac mountain, white water rafting, kite boarding or skiing.
