During the summer between Dr. Brian’s Junior and Senior years at Bucknell, he worked as a chairside assistant for Dr. Carl. Almost immediately, he knew dentistry was for him. After Bucknell, Dr. Brian attended Temple University School of Dentistry, from which he graduated in 2007.

Dr. Robert Bowser
Dr. Robert was a graduate of Dallastown High School in 2002 and attended Juniata College graduating in 2006. While playing four years of soccer and one year of tennis he obtained his bachelor’s degree in organic chemistry. Dentistry became Dr. Robert’s career choice during the summer after his second year at Juniata, when he worked as an assistant at the office. He attended Temple Dental School and graduated in May 2010. Since graduation, Dr. Robert has completed several continuing education courses and has found a niche and a love for working with children. He has also completed training courses for invisible aligner braces, allowing patients to be treated for minor orthodontic problems without the hassle of traditional wires and brackets.
Dr. Robert serves as an Associate Board Member for the Susan Byrnes Health Education Center and has found great joy in serving the community through dentistry. He is an Associate fellow of the American Academy of Orthodontics for the General Practitioner, and a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the Pennsylvania Dental Association.
When he is not practicing dentistry, Dr. Robert enjoys playing soccer, tennis, golf and spends much more time reading than he imagined now that he’s out of school. He married his wife, Kara, in May 2010 and became a father in February 2012.
