The Doctors

Francine Lo BA, DDS, MSD

Orthodontist

Born and raised in Prince George, Dr. Francine Lo received her Undergraduate (BA) and Degree in Dentistry (DDS) from the University of Western Ontario. After practicing as a general dentist for three years, she attended the University of Washington, where she received her Masters Degree in Orthodontics (MSD). Dr. Lo joined the practice in 1997 alongside her husband, Dr. Robert Elliott, and father, Dr. Frank Lo, who has since retired. She also is a clinical instructor in the orthodontic graduate program at the  University of British Columbia, where she loves sharing her clinical know-how with her students.

When she’s not at the office, Dr. Lo takes advantage of BC’s beautiful outdoors. She’s an avid skier, runner, mountain biker and wakeboarder. She shares the travel bug with her husband, and enjoys spending time with her two boys, Max and Cy.

Robert Elliott BA, DDS, MCID, ABO

Orthodontist

Dr. Robert Elliott grew up in Bowmanville, Ontario, and attended Queen’s University in Kingston, where he received his Undergraduate Degree (BA). He later received his Degree in Dentistry (DDS) from the University of Western Ontario. After two years of practice, Dr. Elliott returned to school to pursue his Graduate Orthodontic Degree (MCID), and joined Dr. Frank Lo’s orthodontic practice in 1993.  Dr. Elliott is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO).  Dr. Elliott  is also a clinical instructor in the orthodontic graduate program at the University of British Columbia.

When he’s not providing smile-enhancing services to his patients, Dr. Elliott likes to get outside for some skiing and cycling, and spends as much time as he can with his family.

Our History

30 years and
going strong.

A family business with deep roots in the community, the Lo Elliott legacy began back in 1965, when Dr. Frank Lo founded The Lakewood Dental Group in Prince George. He practiced as a general dentist until 1979, when he decided to pursue his accreditation as a Certified Specialist in Orthodontics. He founded his orthodontic practice in 1981, and was joined by Dr. Robert Elliott in 1993, and his daughter, Dr. Francine Lo, four years later.

Today, husband and wife team Dr. Francine Lo and Dr. Robert Elliott continue the family legacy started by the now-retired Dr. Frank Lo. Through continued education, they strive to operate a progressive practice and support one another in the pursuit of orthodontic excellence and advanced patient care. Both orthodontists are members of the Edward H. Angle Society–an internationally recognized, invitation-only orthodontics study club. They also teach as clinical faculty in the Graduate Orthodontic Program at UBC.

Lo Elliott is the #1 orthodontic practice in BC, and a sought-after destination for advanced smile correction and treatment. Patients come from all over the province for the exceptional experience and results the Lo Elliott name represents.
