Doctor

Tom Bowen – Lead Hygienist

Tom was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona. He attended Northern Arizona University for his undergraduate and also for his hygiene degree, for which he graduated with honors. He chose to attend hygiene school at NAU because of the longer, in-depth hygiene program. As part of his schooling, he completed an internship as well as outside rotations, all of which allowed him to gain additional experience working with patients and developing his skills.

Tom first became interested in dentistry because he had friends who were already in the dental field and enjoyed it. He was drawn to the hygiene program because it allowed him to provide for his family while at the same time allowing him to have a successful, fulfilling career. He loves being a part of the CV Dental team and taking care of our patients. He finds great satisfaction in interacting with and educating patients and helping them to have healthier mouths.

Tom currently lives with his wife of over 20 years and their four sons in Gilbert, Arizona. Everyone in his family enjoys playing most any kind of sports, and Tom has coached several of his sons’ teams. Their family also enjoys hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities. Tom is very active in his church and often helps with Boy Scouts and other community and youth activities. One of his special talents is his ability to whistle and wiggle his ears. He feels very blessed to have such a great family and to work with such a wonderful team here at Canyon Vista Dental Care.
