Dr. Bowling is happily married to his lovely wife Claire, a Louisiana native. They recently welcomed their first baby, a beautiful boy, into the world here in Charleston. They have two adopted puppies; The lovely, nurturing and energetic little lady, Flora, and the ever-curious gentleman Fitzgerald.

They enjoy traveling the reaches of the United States and world together where they appreciate the architecture, history, food, and charm that makes each region unique. Love of the sea often brings them to the coast. Favorite pastimes of theirs include enjoying tours, finding unique restaurants to dine, fishing, and enjoying views of the sea. They often can be found enjoying walks downtown, sitting together at park benches, dates to the movies, and many simple miscellaneous “mini-dates” together.


I used to dread my dental appointments but not any longer. Dr. Bowling and his staff are always smiling, courteous, timely, and striving to make my visit as pleasant as possible. I love the reminders for appointments and text which is an added bonus so I don’t forget. I’d have to say I feel like family. Thank you Dr. Bowling for always making my visit a pleasant one."
