Dr. Stan Lowrance had a dream that his Rockwall dental practice would become a true dental home for generations of local families, caring for kids, their parents, and their grandparents all under one roof. That dream took on even more meaning when he was joined by his younger daughter, Dr. Shanae Lowrance, and his older daughter, Chloe Lowrance, both working alongside their dad helping him care for the families of Rockwall. You won’t find a prouder dad or a more family-oriented dental practice.
When he opened his practice almost four decades ago, Dr. Stan focused on two things — service and caring. His motto quickly became “quality and caring in a Christian atmosphere.” That caring begins by simply listening, letting patients know their needs and desires are truly heard. “Each patient is unique,” he said. “It’s only when I slow down and really listen to them that I can create a treatment plan that fits their exact needs, preferences, and lifestyle. Getting to know our patients is the most enjoyable part of this job.”
Partnering with Patients
Even as a young man, Dr. Stan had a desire to serve and to care. Reading through his hundreds of five-star online reviews, one theme that surfaced often is his communication skills. “Some patients are anxious in the dental chair,” he said. “In addition to letting them know I truly hear their concerns and desires, it’s important I take the time to educate them about the WHY in their treatment plan. There’s often more than one way we can correct an issue or improve a smile. It’s only when I take the time to educate my patient about all their options and the benefits of each, that they can make savvy decisions they feel confident about.”
Dr. Stan and his team never want to forget that their patient is their customer and that customer service is their number one priority. “We can’t do what we do without our patients, and we want them to feel like superstars when they’re in our office,” he said. “We want each one to feel like they’re the only patient we’ll see that day. Serving generations of families and sharing their life journey is an honor we want to earn. It’s amazing now to see Dr. Shanae caring for the grandchildren of people I grew up with. We want our patients to know they’re the most important people in this office.”
Attention to Detail
In dentistry, Dr. Stan says, there is no detail too small to be important. “Our goal is first and foremost to preserve our patients’ natural, healthy teeth,” he said. “With that goal in mind, we want to begin with the youngest patient teaching them the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of caring for their teeth. When there is an issue, we want to catch it as early as possible and provide the least-invasive treatment and keep those gorgeous, healthy teeth for a lifetime. One way we do this is by investing in the latest diagnostic technology so that we can detect cavities and other issues at their earliest, most treatable stage.”
Dr. Stan couldn’t be prouder of his girls. “Both girls grew up right here in Rockwall and graduated from Rockwall-Heath High School. Dr. Shanae attended Tarleton State University on a basketball scholarship completing a bachelor’s degree in biomedical science before graduating from Texas A&M Dental College. She’s great with kids, and our patients just love her. She brings her youth and vibrance into the practice and is a whiz at understanding advancing dental technologies that make for a better patient experience.”
Dr. Stan’s older daughter, Chloe, played four years of college volleyball and graduated from Texas State with a degree in early childhood development. She originally joined Lowrance Dental temporarily, while she looked for a teaching job. But it was such a natural fit that she decided to stay on at the family business. “Chloe is great with our patients,” Dr. Stan said. “She also handles our social media presence and does an amazing job there as well.”
“Their mom and I couldn’t be happier about having them here with us,” Dr. Stan said. “They are Rockwall girls, and we’re thrilled they decided to move back here with their husbands and raise their own families in Rockwall. In a time when dentistry is becoming increasingly corporate and impersonal, we’re happy to provide dentistry that’s home-grown and family-run. Our patients love knowing that, when they come to see us, they’ll see the same faces every time. We know them and care about them and their families. We see them around town and know we’re providing them with the best dental care available. We’ve been here for almost 40 years and plan to be here a lot longer.”
“As somebody with a lot of dental problems, I’ve learned it’s important to select the best dentist. Dr. Stan Lowrance is that dentist. I used to go to the most convenient dentist, but after experiencing multiple issues, I’ve found that Dr. Stan is the absolute best. Having Dr. Stan as my dentist has made a big difference.”
