Congratulations to Dr. Kenneth Bowman on his retirement! He has dedicated his heart and soul in service of his patients for more than 50 years while building our amazing dental practice.

Kelly McKown, D.D.S.
Providing quality dental care in a comfortable and pleasant atmosphere is the priority of Dr. Kelly McKown. She grew up in the mountains of Falls View, West Virginia, living with her parents in a small town where she developed a strong sense of community. She started her career in dentistry as a dental hygienist attending a local community college, West Virginia Institute of Technology. Within two years of entering the field, Dr. McKown had the drive to serve her patients in a broader capacity by pursuing the education to become a dentist. After completing her dental pre-requisites at West Virginia State University, she was accepted into West Virginia University School of Dentistry and graduated in 2010 with her DDS degree. After graduation she worked as an associate in WV and later moved to Harrisonburg, Virginia where she owned her own practice for almost 10 years. Dr. McKown has continued to expand her knowledge throughout her career and in 2020 became a Diplomate with the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. This enables her to treat patients' obstructive sleep apnea with dental devices as an alternative to CPAP.
Dr. McKown enjoys the relationships formed working with her patients. She provides quality dentistry and sleep apnea treatment for her patients while creating a comfortable environment for care. In her time away from work, Dr. McKown spends her time with her four children. Her family enjoys traveling and spending time outdoors camping. She is also an avid backpacker, and despite her busy life, has completed nearly 100 miles of the Appalachian in the last two years.
Amy joined our practice in March 2020. In her spare time, she enjoys her family time, being outdoors (when it’s warm), and playing with her four-legged babies. Amy’s favorite part about dentistry is meeting new people and being able to help them. She states it is “definitely a learning experience.”

Kim has been involved in dentistry for over 35 years and was first inspired and fascinated by her next door neighbor who did hygiene. She has been a part of the Bowman Family Dentistry team for the last 30 years and has loved watching generations of families grow up and bring their children back to the dental practice they grew up in. Kim is now working on seeing her fourth generation of families! Outside of dentistry, she loves to boat, golf, and get away to the beach. Most of all, Kim loves spending time with her husband, Paul, daughter and her husband, Paige and Brandon, and her beloved dogs, Champ and Noel.
Madison grew up in Stuarts Draft and attended Stuarts Draft High School, BRCC, JMU (bachelors in Health Sciences), and most recently, VWCC. Her orthodontist, Dr. Cloth, got her interested in dentistry so she took the dental assisting course at what was then Valley Vocational Technical Institute during her senior year of high school. After high school graduation, Dr. Bowman offered her a part-time job as a dental assistant and introduced her to the professional world. Madison's favorite part of dentistry is educating patients. We are constantly learning about new techniques and products that can help our patients achieve their oral health goals and she loves being in a position that allows her to share that knowledge. Madison enjoys swimming, visiting local parks, and spending time with friends and family when not taking care of patients.
Lindsey is a graduate of Wytheville Community College and has her Applied Science Degree in Dental Hygiene. Lindsey enjoys getting to know her patients and making a positive influence with education and encouragement. When Lindsey is not serving patients, she enjoys spending time in the outdoors with her husband, Preston, and their rambunctious fur babies.
