Front Office and Business Staff


Debbie

Practice Administrator

Debbie is our practice administrator, and a certified notary public. She possesses the uncanny ability to know almost all of our patients by name upon sight. She is often overheard chatting with patients about dental and personal issues, but maintains the efficiency necessary to accommodate a large number of patients, and manage a busy front office. These unique qualities allow her to aid each patient in a personalized manner.

Debbie started working in dentistry in 1972, and has been with our office since 1983. She started her career as a dental assistant prior to transitioning to her current position as practice administrator, so she commands knowledge of both the clinical and business aspects of our practice. Outside of her professional life, Debbie has been a devoted wife for 45 years, is the proud mother of two successful adult children, and loves to spoil her five grandchildren.



Tiffani

Patient Care Coordinator

Tiffani’s education in dentistry began at Concorde Career Institute in Kansas City in 1994. Although Tiffani worked as a dental assistant for many years in our office, she found her passion in working with our patients at the front desk. The time she spent assisting coupled with the knowledge she has acquired regarding dental insurance has made her a wonderful resource to our patients. She has been employed at Bowles Dental Center since 1998. She took three of those years off to have her twins, Becca and Gavin. Tiffani has been married to her husband, Bert, for over 20 years.  They have four children, Allyssa, Karson, Becca, and Gavin. Allyssa and Karson keep Tiffani and Bert very occupied with their love of softball. With Allyssa playing at the collegiate level and Karson committed to play as well, the family stays very busy. Tiffani's hobbies include her family, reading, playing cards with her sisters, and enjoying her pups Titan and Oliver.
