Speaker Biography
Dr. Robert A. Lowe graduated magna cum laude from Loyola University School of Dentistry in 1982, and was a Clinical Professor in Restorative Dentistry until its closure in 1993. He maintains a private practice in Charlotte, North Carolina, lectures internationally, and publishes on aesthetic and restorative dentistry. Dr. Lowe is a member of Catapult Elite Speakers Bureau and has Fellowships in the AGD, ICD, ADI, ACD, IADFE, and ASDA. In 2004 he received the Gordon Christensen Outstanding Lecturers Award, and in 2005, Diplomat status on the American Board of Esthetic Dentistry.

Course Summary
For all the advances our profession has made over the last several decades in materials science and digital technologies, it is losing the emphasis on which every dental restoration is conceived. According to Dr. Harold M. Shavell, who many consider “The Michaelangelo of Dentistry”, “Occlusion is the Common Denominator of All Dentistry.” Every restoration placed, has the potential to profoundly alter the occlusal and/or the incisal relationships of the patients’ dentition. Thus, understanding, visualizing, and reproducing human dentate morphology, regardless of the material used... is key to long-lasting dental restoration.

In this lecture, Dr. Lowe, who started molding his philosophy of practice while still in dental school, after seeing Dr. Shavell present a lecture in which he showed amalgam restorations that looked like they were “waxed and cast in silver”, will discuss how the philosophies of this exceptional teacher helped mold him as a student and practicing dentist. “The search for excellence”, as Dr. Shavell taught, is never ending and not an easy road to follow. Reviewing fundamentals of direct restorative and crown and bridge will help all dentists improve the quality and art of the dentistry they provide. He has said, “The eye doesn’t see what the mind hasn’t taught it to recognize”. And... “The road to success is easier when you know where you are going!” This lecture will take everyone “back to the future” to discover that the importance of sound technique and and morphologic precision is just as important in today’s dental practice as it was when Dr. Shavell practiced his craft.
