Dr. Jeremy Bowen
Dr. Bowen is a native of the Independence area and attended the University of Missouri, School of Dentistry, where he graduated with honors. He was accepted for membership to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry in 2007. In 2018, Dr. Bowen was inducted by his peers as a Fellow in The American College of Dentists. The mission of the College is to advance excellence, professionalism, and leadership in dentistry. He has received advanced training at the Dawson Academy in restorative dentistry and treating T.M.J. (Bite Disorders). He and his wife Christine have been married for 15 years and have two sons (12 and 9) and a daughter (8). The Bowen family loves to recharge by swimming and playing at the park.
Beyond the realm of teeth, Bowen coaches his sons in Pop Warner Football, serves as a high school football referee and has officiated multiple state championship games at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis. He says, “I love teaching the kids about teamwork through sports and how to handle adversity and hard work.”
Bowen has also served in the dental community as well. Currently, he serves on the Board of Trustees for the Missouri Dental Association. He is Past President of the Greater Kansas City Dental Board and has served the state of Missouri Association as well as a House of Delegates member for 7 years. He said, “It is so important to the community that we have rules and procedures in place to protect the public.”
Dr Bowen and his team believe that they are here to help people and make a positive impact in the lives of others. They are quick to point out that they “care for people, not just teeth.” Because many people harbor real fear and anxieties about going to the dentist, and these fears strand them from getting the care they need, the Dental Arts motto is, “We cater to cowards.” Music, blankets, back massagers, headphones, movies, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), and oral conscious sedation are available to help make clients’ visits as enjoyable as possible. The most important thing is helping clients achieve a healthy mouth without fear.
Bowen says, “Our smiles are an extension of who we are. It’s so rewarding when a patient hugs you, cries with you and is so thankful you helped change their lives by giving them the smile they always wanted.”
“Though I am always nervous, I know that no matter what the situation, I could not be in better hands at Dental Arts. Thank you to you and your staff. You are all so wonderful. God bless you!” Gail
