Dr. Benjamin Bowman
Dr. Benjamin Bowman, sometimes known as “the Singing Dentist,” or on YouTube as the “Rapping Dentist,” is just one side of his personality you will experience when you visit our office. He absolutely loves Kingfisher and the wonderful community here that he has grown to love. Growing up in Deer Creek, Kingfisher, Watonga and Hennessey were always rivaling competitors in sports. Lettering in football, wrestling, soccer, and tennis, he saw firsthand the small-town community support that these towns exemplified. He admired that greatly, which made his decision to come to this community an easy one. He is proud to make his professional home in Kingfisher and being a part of this community has been an experience that has far exceeded his imagination.
Dr. Bowman speaks fluent Spanish, which he learned after high school graduation when he left the country for two years to serve for his church in South America. “I was truly humbled by the circumstances and fell in love with the people as I learned Christlike service.” His experience in South America further solidified his desire to be in the service/health industry.
As a child, he would make rounds at the hospital with his grandad where he saw firsthand how much he loved his patients and how much his patients loved him. “I decided as a young boy I wanted to be a doctor, just like my grandad.”
He attended the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry where he received honors including Dean’s Honor Roll and special recognition for his skills and knowledge in implants, oral surgery, and cosmetic dentistry. After graduating college, he spent five months in Arkansas furthering his knowledge and skill in implants, wisdom teeth extractions, aesthetics/cosmetics, TMJ treatment, and full mouth rehabilitation.
It was fate that brought him to Kingfisher as an unexpected trip home from Texas brought the thought to mind that he needed to make a change in his life for his family to move back home to be able to raise his children close to their grandparents.
Although Dr. Bowman got to spend a little time with his grandad, he did not get to grow up around him. His family needed the experience that he was unable to enjoy. On this trip home, an opportunity presented itself to partner in Kingfisher with the Custom Dental Group. He jumped at the chance and is happy to say that four years later he was given the opportunity to purchase the rest of the practice and make it his own. “Because we love this community so much, we will be here for a long time.”
“It is my desire that my patients can come to a place where they feel comfortable, feel like they are part of our family, and have the best care.” It is our mission to provide a full-service dental practice which includes oral surgery, implants, endodontics (root canals), braces, and general dentistry. Time is an asset to everyone. It is something that cannot be created and cannot be given back. Therefore, when our patients come to us, we want to provide a one stop dental practice where our patients will not have to be sent out of town to have procedures done then back to our office to finish them. Because of Dr. Bowman’s passion for learning and advancing his skills, we can do all these services. “I feel honored to be a part of this profession, but mostly, I am honored to be a part of this extraordinary community, and I look forward to being your dentist.”
