Dr Rowe was born in Texas and comes from a military family where he lived across the country and overseas. He and his wife Kristen have four children. His interests are spending time with his family and engaging in various sporting activities. In his own words, “… I Studied Zoology at Brigham Young University and earned DDS degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry in 1999. After which, I participated in a six-month mini residency in general dentistry before working in a large group practice in Las Vegas, Nevada. After founding a successful startup practice there in 2000, I sold it to move closer to my wife’s family in Washington State in 2007. After working in a group practice situation, founded Ideal Dentistry in Kennewick, Washington in 2009. For me, I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry… particularly how the blend of art and science contributes to the restoration of natural function. It is satisfying to perform minimally invasive surgical and restorative techniques and then seeing the results. I have a great staff who are fantastic to work with each day. What gives me professional satisfaction is earning trust through excellent patient care and helping to improve quality of life.”
