Peter was born in Johannesburg South Africa to Immigrant Dutch Parents. After completing his high school education at Bryanston High and not knowing what he wanted to do, he opted to complete his compulsory 2 year military training. He completed his military training rising to the rank of lieutenant in the intelligence core.
Peter went on to study Dental technology at Wits and graduated in 1986. By then Peter was already working in and along side one of South Africa’s best technicians. In short, Peter responded to an advert for work in New Zealand which he consequently got and arrived in a timely manner for the 1st rugby world Cup!
Falling in love with the NZ lifestyle, Peter never returned to South Africa.
He re-vitalised an old rugby career and worked for Prosthetic Processes Auckland. In 1988 saw Peter become the youngest director of New Zealand’s largest Dental Laboratory. Peter is now the sole owner and head Ceramist of the renamed Prosthetic Processes – Designer Smiles Ltd.
The original company was established in 1939 and has continued a reputation for reliability and quality of product under Peters leadership.
Peter introduced many industry standards with the likes of warranty periods and new computer aided technologies. Peter is not only highly experienced but he is also passionate about the work he does.
Dr. Lowry and Peter work closely together as a team to ensure that their patients receive a guaranteed, quality product and the best clinical protocol to suit their dental requirements.
