Meet Kristen Lowe, DDS, MS

As a craniofacial orthodontist in the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at The Children's Hospital Colorado, Dr. Lowe is a member of the Cleft Lip and Palate, Craniofacial and Orthognathic multidisciplinary teams and the Director of the Craniofacial Orthodontics program. Her clinical focus is the specialized orthodontic management of patients born with craniofacial conditions, such as cleft lip and palate, hemifacial microsomia, and craniosynostosis. In conjunction with other Children’s specialists, Dr. Lowe manages the needs of patients born with facial differences at multiple stages from birth through adulthood. She is a leading provider of nasoalveolar molding (NAM) for infants born with cleft lip and palate and works with patients as young as one week old. Dr. Lowe completed her dental degree at the University of California, Los Angeles, her orthodontics residency and Master of Science degree at Columbia University, and her fellowship in Craniofacial and Special Needs Orthodontics at NYU Langone Medical Center’s Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. She is one of the few orthodontists in the country to have completed a craniofacial orthodontics fellowship accredited by the American Dental Association, and she was awarded the Craniofacial Anomalies and Special Care Training Award by the American Association of Orthodontists upon completion of her training. Dr. Lowe is board certified by the American Board of Orthodontists, which is a distinction held by only a third of practicing orthodontists. Dr. Lowe was formerly a Clinical Associate in the postgraduate Orthodontics Department at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and returns for lectures periodically. Currently, she is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
