Meet Dr. Mark A Paciorek

I grew up in the Syracuse area, and nothing gives me more pleasure than being able to provide my hometown community with excellent orthodontic care. The people I treat aren’t just patients; they are also my family, friends, and neighbors. I strive to give each patient I see friendly, personalized attention and develop meaningful relationships with them during and after their treatment.

I received my bachelor of science degree in Pharmacy from Albany College of Pharmacy and I worked as a pharmacist prior to and during my dental training. I attended the University of Buffalo Dental School for my dental degree and specialty training at the master’s level, where I graduated top in my class.
I continue to remain a leader in the field of orthodontics. In my pursuit of continued excellence, I attend numerous continuing education programs throughout the year to maintain the highest quality of care for my patients. I am also a frequent lecturer, sharing my orthodontic expertise at dental society meetings and dental study clubs.

Meet Dr. Nathan Fowler

Nathan M. Fowler, D.M.D. joined our practice as an Associate Orthodontist in July 2013. Dr. Fowler started in our practice years ago as a 12 year old patient! The experience he received as a patient was so exciting and rewarding that he became inspired to pursue his education in dentistry, ultimately as an orthodontist! Dr. Fowler graduated Westhill High School, and SUNY Buffalo, Summa Cum Laude. He obtained his dental degree from the University of Pittsburgh where he graduated as valedictorian of his Dental School class and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honors Society. He then went on to complete a post-doctoral specialty program in orthodontics at Tufts University in Boston, MA.

    I have been a part of Dr. Paciorek's great team since January 2010.  I am currently in treatment myself and it has helped me relate to our patients; especially with the adult patients.  My husband Dan and I welcomed a baby boy, Luke Roland to our family in August.

  • Ashley

    Clinical Orthodontic Assistant

    I was raised in Baldwinsville NY, and I am one of the newest members of Dr. Paciorek’s team. Like many young people, for a long time I had been trying to discover what my passions and goals in life are, and figure out what exactly I would want to do and more importantly love to do for a career. Fortunately I have discovered many of those things in Orthodontics and within the incredible team I get to work with every day. I greatly enjoy the time I get to spend working in the lab and I am working towards becoming a certified clinical assistant. Coming into work every day I just can’t help but smile, especially since I myself am currently in treatment. I’ve always admired beautiful smiles and now I’ll get to show my own smile off.

I really enjoy welcoming the new patients and also the existing ones and just making the experience fun for everyone. I truly enjoy working in the field and being able to see the patients' glowing smiles is just fantastic!


  • Dianne

    Insurance Coordinator

    I first met Dr. Paciorek when I chose him to be my oldest sons Orthodontist. While my oldest son was in treatment I was offered a position working for Dr. Paciorek, which I gladly accepted. I have now been here for the past 12 years. Previous to that I was employed by my general dentist, at the time, for 2 years and I worked for 17 years in customer service and sales. My specialty is in insurance. I get great satisfaction when I am able to retrieve a past due insurance payment for our patients or inform a parent that "yes, you do have an orthodontic benefit through your insurance." During the past 12 years Dr. Paciorek has also treated my second son and myself to a very beautiful and life long smile.
