Our Doctors


Dr. Craig Lowrie

Dr. Craig Lowrie graduated from Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Oregon. When he was there he took extra courses on treating dentally anxious patients and learned new techniques for giving pain free anesthetic. He moved to Alaska with his wife and two children where he bought Advanced Family Dentistry from his predecessor and mentor Dr. Christensen. 

Dr. Lowrie and his family enjoy fishing, camping and skiing. They also like to hike with their two dogs, Ellie, a Newfoundland and Franklin, a Bullmastiff. Alaska is a wonderful place to be and Dr. Lowrie and his wife are happy to raise their family in this great state. 


Dr. Arwood

As a dentist Dr. Arwood makers her patients feel safe and comfortable. She believes in treating the patient as a “whole” entity and not just a tooth. It is very important for her to educate patients and encourage overall health for the mouth, body and mind.
Outside of the office, Dr. Arwood is passionate about exercise and living a healthy lifestyle. She loves the endless mountain bike trails and skiing that Alaska has to offer. Since moving to Alaska, Dr. Arwood has tried many new Alaskan activities including fishing and flying. Indoors Dr. Arwood likes to relax with a cup of tea and a good book. She also loves discovering new music on the internet and in person at music venues. Dr. Arwood spends a lot of time with her Malti-poo, Miska, who you can often see hanging out around the office.




Our doctors focuses on three main aspects of dentistry: patient comfort, big picture treatment planning and performing excellent dental work. We understand that you may have had bad experiences in the past, but we will work to gain your trust and to make sure you have a good experience here at Advanced Family Dentistry.
