Welcome to the best dental team in D.C.
In 40 years of dentistry I have never worked with a staff as experienced, compassionate, and dedicated to their patients as the team I work with now. We are committed to making your experience exceptional, bringing everything we have learned to your care.
- Dr. Larry Bowers
Jess – Front Office Coordinator
Olá, I am Jess, a Brazilian by birth, and now a happy American. I speak Portuguese and can understand a little Spanish. I work at the Front Desk scheduling appointments and making sure that our patients feel welcome. It is my number one priority to make our patients feel comfortable. We know that some people have had bad experiences, but not to worry, this will not be a problem at our practice. Here we will make sure that you leave happy and with a beautiful smile. Dr. Larry and Dr. Langley are wonderful dentists; they treat people with respect and honesty. I have had a lot of experience, having come from another country and having worked with the public since I was fourteen years old. It has taught me that respect and honesty are the most important things in a good relationship. We offer that at East Capitol Dental. I recently moved to Alexandria, Virginia and love it. In my extra time I am a realtor. I help people find their dream home. I am very grateful for the opportunity to work at this awesome dental office.
Tracey - Dental Assistant
Hi, I’m Tracey and I’ve been Dr. Bowers’ only assistant for over 25 years. I try to be very sensitive to the needs of my patients. I want to be able to provide whatever they need in order to make their time in our office as comfortable and pleasant as possible. My favorite part of my job is talking with my patients. I love the connection I have with almost all of them and I love that they feel comfortable and safe when they’re here. In the 37 years I’ve worked in the dental field, I’ve never worked with anyone as caring and giving as Dr. Bowers. I am so very proud to work here!
I’m a single mother of two sons and a daughter who I love to spend time with. I am also an avid walker, especially when I have my dog, Bayer, with me. I am very involved in my church community of St. Augustine’s Catholic Church and their role in improving hunger and homelessness in and around the city.
Cindy – Registered Dental Hygienist
Hello, I’m Cindy and as a hygienist, I help improve our patients’ overall health through “thorough but gentle” dental cleanings and home care education. My goal is to make patients feel comfortable in the dental chair. I hope they will leave feeling more relaxed than they were when they walked in the door. Every patient is unique, has their own expectations, and deserves to be treated as the special person they are. I have worked with Dr. Bowers since 1982. The compassion he shows for his staff and patients is unparalleled. I’ve been married to my husband, Kevin, since 1984. We have two children, Stephanie and Cliff, and a golden retriever named Shiloh. When I have free time I enjoy knitting, reading, swimming, riding my bike, and going to the beach.
Danielle - Registered Dental Hygienist
Welcome to East Capitol Dental, my name is Danielle and my goal is to help you achieve a clean and healthy smile while forgetting that you’re in a dentist chair. Quite a task, I know, but don’t worry, I’ve been working in all aspects of dentistry since I became a Dental Hygienist in 2008. I started my career in my home-town, Detroit; the experience I gained in Motown taught me the importance of setting up a relaxed, non-judgmental atmosphere where patients can feel at comfortable, even at ease.
I moved to VA in 2013 and finally joined East Capitol Dental in early 2021; I find Dr. Bowers’ style really puts our patients' needs and comfort first, and that’s the type of care I subscribe to. Outside of the office I live with a majestic, friendly cat named Izzy, and I enjoy reading, music, painting, and yoga. I also love cooking and eating healthy, which, despite what many think, is not an oxymoron! But above all I love traveling, I even lived two years in Austria. In lieu of travel during the COVID-19 days, I was very proud to serve as a Public Health Advisor with the CDC at the Quarantine and Border Health Services at Detroit Metro Airport and do my part in the effort against the virus, as well as taking the opportunity of being close to my family and friends when they needed me most.
Jennell - Dental Assistant
I’m Jennell, a mother of two, I have been in the dental field for a number of years and am excited to bring my skills and knowledge to this practice. Every day is a learning day, as I am continually looking for ways to improve my ability to care for patients. There is always more to learn in dentistry. I enjoy pampering our patients to make them feel as comfortable as possible in the chair. I am mindful of our patients’ busy lives, and I want to reduce their stress however I can. Despite joining the team during a pandemic, so far I have found it to have the best atmosphere of any other dental practice. I look forward to meeting you all soon.
