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. I (once again) live above the practice at 711 East Capitol Street with my wife, Laura, and our two children, Warren and Bernadette.  You're likely to hear their squeals and pattering footsteps above!

We can't wait to meet you
