Dr. Bowes completed his Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts, and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees at Dalhousie University, graduating in 2001. He continues to be very heavily involved with furthering his dental education. Being a longstanding member of the East Coast Endodontic Study Club and a recent member of both the Atlantic Canada Seattle Study Club and the Tucker Study Club, Dr. Bowes consistently earns well above the required amount of continuing education hours required by the Provincial Dental Board. Being an active member in these study clubs results in his exposure to the newest, safest, and most effective dental equipment and techniques available, with advanced training in their use.  Recent upgrades to the office include lower radiation digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and laser cavity detection.

After associating at Kentville Dental Centre, Dr. Bowes became a part of the Penhorn Dental Centre team in 2003. He has built a thriving practice, mostly through word of mouth and patient recommendations, from the ground up.

Dr. Bowes believes in providing gentle, caring, quality care. For your comfort and convenience he offers ceiling mounted televisions to offer an interesting distraction to the task at hand. Oral sedation is available to those patients that feel they need it, and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is now available for those who need additional anxiety control.
