Meet Our Team

Piiamari Bowers, DDS
Developing trusting relationships is important to Dr. Bowers. Patients have come to expect a genuine conversation about oral health and how it impacts your general wellness. She works diligently to make sure you have an excellent dental experience in an office where you truly feel at home. Dr. Bowers is the lucky one who gets to take Uuno home every night. And her evenings are spent getting Uuno outside for his walks. She enjoys spending time with friends trying new activities like curling, or flamenco dancing. She even took a fencing class. Laughter is truly the best medicine!

Dental Office Dog - Uuno the Bravery Assistant
Uuno, Bravery Assistant


A dog in the office? You better believe it! Every morning Uuno wakes up, eats a healthy breakfast, and heads to Dexter Dental Studio to serve as the official “Dental Comfort Dog.” Uuno is a Dachshund who provides an unparalleled level of joy to patients of all ages. He is the best snuggler! When he is relaxing outside of the office, Uuno loves to bark at the squirrels on the deck, take hikes, and eat cheese. What he does not like is getting his hair combed, so what you see is what you get!
