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 various major league stadiums when they travel, and LSU baseball games at “The Box”. They often can be found around town enjoying dates to the movies, dinner, and simple miscellaneous “mini-dates” together.

5/5

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."
