Dr. Owens is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD). Dr. Owens and his wife, Kristen, have four children: Ryan, Ryder, Olivia, and Charlotte.

WHAT IS A BOARD CERTIFIED DENTIST?
A board-certified pediatric Dentist, like Dr. Owens, has gone through a rigorous examination process with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Only Dentists that have completed a residency in pediatric dentistry can sit for the board certification examinations. Board certification tests the knowledge and problem-solving abilities of a pediatric Dentist. In our opinion, taking your child to see a certified pediatric Dentist is as important as taking them to a pediatrician.
