Raised in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan, Dr. Bowles was inspired by his father, who was also a family dentist. Growing up, he admired his father’s ability to help his patients live healthier lives. This inspired him to follow in his father’s footsteps.

Dr. Bowles completed his undergraduate studies at Marquette University in Milwaukee and Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. He earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from The University of Detroit Mercy, School of Dentistry. Upon receiving his degree, Dr. Bowles joined his father’s practice in Flint, Michigan. His passion for continuing education brought him to Sarasota, Florida, and to the beginning of his thriving family practice here.

Traveling to Sarasota with his wife Jennifer to attend a mini-residency in TMJ Disorders, Dr. Bowles fell in love with the city. They took one look out over the city and bay from their hotel balcony and they knew they had found their new home. After moving to the area in 2005, Dr. Bowles opened his practice with a vision of providing high quality dental care with a very personal touch. He and Jennifer started their family and now have three children, Blake, born in 2006 and twins, Parker and Hayden, born in 2009.

Dr. Bowles approaches each patient with a goal of creating a total well-being of their oral hygiene and health. Focusing first on the foundation of dental health, soft tissue (gum) health, he creates an individualized plan that works both functionally and financially. Comprehensive examinations and patient education play key roles – ensuring each patient understands their dental condition, needs, and treatment options.
