Dr. Towler, orthodontist

Lindsay Towler, DDS, MSD

Dr. Towler is the newest member of our Blue Ridge Orthodontic’s team and she’s no stranger to going through orthodontic treatment. As a teen she had extensive personal orthodontia. After one of her front teeth did not erupt, she was left with an open space in her smile. Teen Dr. Towler was teased and called “gap girl” for years.  She had surgery to uncover the impacted tooth, but even once it was in place, it wasn’t straight. The complete but now-crooked smile led to more insecurities. She needed more help from her orthodontist.

After two years of extractions, braces, rubber bands and headgear, she felt confident for the first time in her life.

“It was the moment that I saw my straight smile for the first time that I knew I wanted to instill that same confidence in kids and adults for the rest of my life,” Dr. Towler said.

Outside of straightening smiles, Dr. Towler spends most of her time with her husband, Ben, their son Owen and daughter Heidi, and their two furbabies, Penny and Bandit. She also enjoys spending time with her friends and family as well as running, hiking, travel, watching OU football, Thunder basketball and playing video games. She is so excited to start exploring the WNC mountains and all the wonderful sites in and around the area.
