Dr. Benjamin Lawlor

Dr. Lawlor graduated from Dalhousie University and is a fellow with the International College of Oral Implantologists. He is proud to be named among America’s Top Dentists in 2016, 2017 and 2018 and to bring his expertise in family and cosmetic dental services to his home state of Maine.

Before becoming a dentist, Dr. Lawlor served in the military and spent over ten years in the Air Force as an avionics specialist and then dental director. During his military tenure, he served overseas on two deployments and received numerous awards including Airman of the Year. Dr. Lawlor continues to serve by providing free dental care to kids and families on service trips to Guatemala.

At Maine Dentistry, Dr. Lawlor has established a unique approach focused on comfort, quality, and no judgment experiences. Dr. Lawlor knew he wanted to become a dentist since he was a kid, and wants everyone to love their dental experiences as much as he did growing up. When he isn’t working on happy smiles, he can be found hiking Cadillac mountain, white water rafting, kiteboarding, or skiing.

Dr. Mason Cyr
Dr. Mason Cyr

Dr. Mason Cyr is a Maine native, born and raised in Freeport, Maine. He attended University of New England and received a bachelors degree in Applied Exercise Science. His focus shifted from sports medicine to dentistry when he had a sport related injury and disliked his recovery process wherein he found his passion for dentistry. Becoming a Dentist from that point meant more than making beautiful smiles, dentistry means involvement in the community and providing additional services to those in need.

Dr. Cyr graduated from University of New England’s College of Dental Medicine class of 2021. He proceeded to further his education and expertise by attending a general practice residency at the University of Michigan. His experience in Ann Arbor MI, gave him the opportunity work with a variety of patients and build his treatment experience unlike anywhere else.

During his time at University of Michigan he was able to work with medically compromised and special needs populations. Aside from working in the clinic and rounding on inpatients, he rotated through general anesthesia, oral surgery and even emergency medicine.  Dr. Cyr performed extensive treatment in the operating room and would manage post op cancer patients, fabricating orthotics known as obturators. During his time at Michigan he stated he learned saw a variety of cases while on call, treating extensive trauma or infections which would require treatment options that would not be performed in the private practice setting.

Dr. Cyr is avid about providing pain free dentistry, creating dream smiles, and restoring proper function to those with traumatic occlusion. It is his goal to make going to the dentist a pleasant experience and providing patients with time to relax instead of the traditional discomfort.

On Dr. Cyr’s days off he enjoys hiking, restaurants and all activities outdoors. Although he is a local Mainer, he is ready to learn more about the state he has grown to love.

Jake Palmer

Jake was raised in the small town of Pittston in central Maine and received his Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of New England in 2016. He enjoyed his studies under amazing professors during coursework and continued to learn new and improved methods of care each day under their tutelage. Jake now applies those skills to his clinical career. He is certified for local anesthesia as well as administration of nitrous oxide during treatment.

Jake prides himself on making connections with his patients on a personal level along as well as their dental care provider to ensure a comfortable judgement free experience. He always looks for the best treatment options available and provides clear information to his patients for treatment satisfaction.

Every new patient in his chair receives a comprehensive new patient experience, including clinical images of your teeth and smile, a full set of dental radiographs to diagnose any issues, periodontal charting to evaluate bone health, and finish with a dental cleaning. He is a very personable hygienist, and wants his patients to be excited about coming to the dentist.

When not at work, Jake loves the outdoors. In the summer, that includes fishing, playing basketball, golfing, going to the beach, camping, and hiking. In the winter you can find him snowboarding or playing virtual golf. He has a love for animals, especially his cat named Wonton.
