Meet Dr. Langley Bowers - DDS

Meet Dr. Langley Bowers - Doctor of Dental Surgery

I was born and raised at 711 East Capitol Street. Capitol Hill, and the dental office, have always been my home. Like my father, I enjoy working with my hands. I have sculpted and carved and constructed things for my entire life. I see dentistry as sculpture, presenting an inextricable link between medicine and art, health and beauty. I am thrilled to be able to employ my gifts to care for our patients.


Out of college, I was an Associate Producer for the Smithsonian Channel. After four years of documentary television production, I realized that I missed working with my hands. I turned my sights to dentistry, enrolling in University of Vermont’s Postbaccalaureate program to prepare for dental school. During my time in Burlington, I became heavily involved volunteering at Zeno Mountain Farm, an arts community for people with disabilities. It was at Zeno that I met my wife, Laura. I went on to study at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, the nation’s first and oldest dental school.

Outside the Office 

I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to return to Capitol Hill to serve the community that raised me. Coming home with me are my wife, Laura, our 2-year-old son, Warren, and our newborn baby daughter. We just moved in around the corner from the practice, so I look forward to seeing you in the neighborhood. Moreover, I am excited and honored to be here to care for your smile.
