Dr. Beth Bowen, DDS
I am originally from northeast Arkansas. I graduated from Jonesboro High School in 2004 and then attended the University of Arkansas on a prestigious Bodenhamer Fellowship, graduating magna cum laude with a B.S. in biology in 2007.
During my second semester of college, a group of friends invited me to volunteer with them at the Free Health Center. I fell in love with dentistry over those Thursday night visits! To me, dentistry is the perfect way to build relationships with my patients while combining my loves of science and art.
After college, I attended the University of Tennessee in Memphis for dental school. I absolutely adored my time in Memphis! (Yes, I am a huge nerd!) While in school, I had the privilege of presenting research, taking electives in periodontal surgery, esthetics, CEREC technology, and Endodontics as well as teaching underclassmen through the senior honors program. I graduated with Honors in 2011.
I have done additional training in the dental departments of both the Children's Hospital of Colorado and the Cincinnati Children's Hospital. This was to learn more about comprehensive treatment planning for children, behavior management, and dental needs associated with growth and development.
After dental school, I worked as an associate for three years in my hometown of Jonesboro before moving back to Fayetteville to join Dr. Kifer. I am excited to be back in Northwest Arkansas after a seven-year hiatus! When I am not at the office, you can likely find me spending time with my family and friends or with my two spoiled pups, Sooie and Petunia. If I am not with the ones I love, I am likely in the kitchen baking, calling the Hogs at a football game, or running on one of the great trails around town.
