I want to give Dr. Bowen at Great Big Smiles a shout out, fun, friendly office. My granddaughter was 12 when she started or Orthodontics , she was born without her cuspids (canine teeth) she is now 17, and she just had her last appointment.Dr. Bowen has given her a perfect set of teeth, so beautiful, and this is the first time she has ever shown her parents the form to fill out for her school pictures. as her grandmother this makes me so happy to see her have the confidence in herself to smile big and let those teeth show. I could not be happier  with the  results, and did I mention how much fun the Doctor is, and his staff make you feel like family if you are looking for a great dentist look no further then this office, he also has an office in Phoenix

Professional, benevolent, and genuine. Dr. Bowen’s practice is truly the best in the entire metropolitan area. The staff is diligent in taking their time to make sure you are receiving the service/treatment you deserve. Erica and Manny have truly exemplified what it means to provide stellar service. I highly recommend this Orthodontist when you’re ready to invest in your Great Big Smile.

My orthodontists retired (Dr Running and Dr Helwig) and I was extremely skeptical and sad about switching to someone new. Bowen bought out their practice, so I gave him a shot. The bottom line is Dr Bowen delivered. He does fantastic work, is extremely easy to talk with and as a patient, I felt at ease asking questions. The staff is wonderful and very caring as they were before. Bowen genuinely cares about what he’s doing and has a positive attitude. Would definitely go back.

Thank you Dr. Bowen and thanks to the Entire Team at Great Big Smiles! Each and every person in your office is awesome. You are greeted with a smile and feel welcomed the moment you step inside. Everyone is courteous and professional. I just finished 9months of Invisalign treatment. It took a lot less time than I had expected. Overall, my experience was good. There was very little discomfort. I’m so happy with my smile now and am very satisfied with the result.

Dr. Bowen and his staff are a few of the kindest and most patient medical practitioners I have met.  Both of my kids saw Dr. Bowen for their braces and he was warm and interested in my children.  My daughter’s teeth were especially tricky and she now has a beautiful smile and the self confidence that goes with it.

I just finished my invisalign treatment today.  I am very happy with the results.  Dr. Bowen and his staff were great.  I was always a little embarrassed of my teeth because of the crowding, which got worse as I got older.  I am a physician myself and I highly recommend Dr. Bowen to anyone who needs an excellent orthodontist.  He will make you smile…with confidence…a Great Big Smile!  😀

This office is so friendly and knowledgeable and really personable. They exceeded all of my expectations and was really a pleasure to work with. The entire staff was warm and inviting and I look forward to our next experience. I would recommend them for orthodontics to anyone since their approach is so seamless. Most of all, you can tell they really care and get to know their patients.

Very happy with my braces and also the quality service at GBS. Has been worth every penny! No time is wasted in the office and that was important to me as a scheduled professional. The location is great located downtown near where I work. Dr. Bowen and his friendly staff made every accommodation while I was in, from ease of paperwork and answering my questions in consultation. The office is family friendly and inviting. The culture in the office has a good chemistry and atmosphere and I enjoy my appointments. And shoutout to Dr. Bowen for throwing on my bottom brackets on short notice before my work trip. Really impressed he and his team were able to squeeze that in and make that a priority for me. U the real mvp

Dr. Bowen is great at what He does. I love the fact that when I walk in for my appointment, they have my name listed on a screen for me to easily check in. The wait time is low and the staff is awesome. The office is always clean and professional. They worked with me to establish a payment plan that works with my budget. I will be getting braces for my daughter once I am able to afford braces for her. I will highly recommend Dr. Bowen to anyone seeking a professional and friendly orthodontist

As an employee of a non-profit organization who has been serviced by Dr. Bowen and the staff for years, I HIGHLY recommend them for all orthodontic needs. They are friendly, kind, efficient, and it’s always a pleasure to walk into their office. They have done pro-bono work for our scholars in need of orthodontic care that could not otherwise afford it. Love to Dr. Bowen, Gloria and the whole team! You all are miracle workers! 🙂

From the first moment I walked in the door to my last appointment to pick up my retainers, I felt so comfortable and cared for. I was surrounded by professionalism and a clear indication that this place was filled with a lot of passion for their job and patients. I am so thrilled with my results and have so much more confidence because of it. My all around experience was exceptional and I will highly recommend Dr. Bowen and wonderful staff to everyone and anyone that wants that Great Big Smile!!!!

We love our smiles! My triplet daughters and I looked forward to our visits to see Dr. Bowen. In fact, having Gloria greet us as we walked in and then seeing Dr. Bowen’s genuine smile made us feel like part of the Great Big Smiles family. Now that our teeth are straight and beautiful, we miss our visits. Dr. Bowen contributes to school fundraisers and auctions so look for his contributions around the valley.

The staff and doctor are friendly, professional and pretty funny too. Lots of laughs but they always make sure everything is taken care of for you and your teeth. They are flexible with scheduling and last minute appointment when a band brakes or something along those lines. I really like the environment and culture they create at this office. It’s great for all ages even adults which is the case for me. I really recommend them hands down.

We went to Dr. Bowen for a second opinion on 1st phase braces for my 10 year-old.  He was much less expensive, and his whole staff was so nice.  I had all 5 kids with me and they were sweet with all my kids.  They are able to fit us in any time we have a band break or need any help.  Today after his appointment my son said, “I’m so glad we come here for my braces.”  He loves their “Smiles Miles” program where he earns points (to trade in for gift cards) for different things like dentist check-ups, losing teeth, or referring friends.  We’d recommend Dr. Bowen to anyone.

My regular dentist recommended Doctor Bowen for my invisalign treatment and I am SO GLAD he did! 🙂 On my first visit I was totally won over by the staff! From the person who greeted me at the door to the hygienist to Dr. Bowen himself – every single person was friendly, warm, helpful and clearly focused on what mattered to me as individual. They took a ton of time with me to explain how invisalign works and answered any questions I had. Most importantly – they were just a lot of fun to be around. I couldn’t believe how quickly the time had passed and how easy everything was. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for the awesome, individualized and friendly service. If I ever need ortho work – you’re my people! I should also mention that the day I was going in to get my invisalign work done, a groupon came across my email promoting 50% at another general dentist. I thought about it for one second and then realized that I really trusted Dr. Bowen and his team and that I wanted them to be the folks working on my teeth given they are experts in the field and so warm and friendly. So…if that’s not a glowing recommendation, I’m not sure what is. 🙂 Do yourself a favor and visit Dr. Bowen and friends at Great Big Smiles.

Started seeing Dr. Bowen when my daughter was 6 years old under the advice of her dentist. So far she has been the youngest and smallest patient. It’s been a learning process for me and greatly appreciate the patience him and his staff has had with my family and me. Thank you so much for making my daughter and my sons smiles better.

I highly recommend Great Big Smiles Orthodontics with Dr. Michael Bowen. I just finished Invisalign, and I love how straight my teeth are! I’m in my 50’s and my teeth started turning gradually to cross over each other. I wasn’t sure if it was worth getting my teeth fixed at my age… but I’m so glad that I did! They look great, feel great, and I feel more confident! The Invisalign trays are clear which helped me at my age to feel more professional in my career, and while I felt like I sounded a little bit different I got used to that quickly. It was painless with minimal visits, and my appointments were quick and on-time. Dr. Bowen and his staff were very friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. Every individual who helped me knew my name and completed their tasks thoroughly and efficiently. I loved the reminder texts, flexible appointment schedule, fun environment, and their accessibility. And on my last visit, they celebrated our success! I give them ten stars out of five!

Let me start by saying that I am a little bit high maintenance, or so I’m told. I had braces as a kid and then my teeth greatly shifted after I lost my retainer at 18. I knew I wanted them fixes both for visible reasons and for annoying reasons. After looking at several different options, I knew I wanted Invisalign. A few years prior I looked at different Ortho practices. However, I never found the right practice until found GREAT BIG SMILE. They were recommended by my dentist who I love. Dr. Bowen is a really nice guy who always has a smile and a funny story along with being gentle and kind. All of the staff follow his lead and are equally polite sweet and kind. From Gloria during check-in, and who always sent text and email reminders. To Melissa and Debbie and Dr Bowen who always made sure I was comfortable during my own personal anxiety around teeth tools. I have been through the whole process and just just finished. (1 year) Meaning I got my impression for my maintenance retainer (CRAZY!!). If you are looking for a Fantastic orthodontist with great staff and two locations for convince I highly recommend DR. Bowen’s GREAT BIG SMILE practice.

I was here in Arizona for vacation with my family and my wire was sliding out of the back bracket. My cousin had an appointment and I went in with him to see if they could fix it. He happily helped fix the problem with the wire for free and is an awesome orthodontist. I highly recommended him if you are looking for an orthodontist to go to. I am very thankful for his help.

Dr. Bowen and his entire staff are incredible. Being 27 and having to go through the process of getting braces for the first time was a little overwhelming, but the team at Great Big Smiles erased any insecurity I felt. Every experience I’ve had at their office—from consultation to Invisalign set up and getting the Propel procedure—has been comfortable and informative. Definitely recommend!

Dr. Bowen and his team are the bomb! I could not be happier with the thorough attention given to my girls and their orthodontic issues, but also with the care and attention they give to them as individuals. My girls look forward to going to see Dr. Bowen and his staff. The make the appointments fun! Dr. Bowen is professional, but also a big kid who relates to the kids on every little thing going on in their lives. He so easily takes their minds off the fact they are getting their teeth moved into place while they are enjoying the moment! We have referred anyone we know needing Orthodontic care to Dr. Bowen. There are two offices in the Phoenix area, so it makes getting there convenient. The other thing I LOVE is that we are usually in a hurry for everything and they make sure we are in and out without delays. The only problem is, who wants to leave after you arrive??…it really is always the bright spot in a hectic day. Thanks Dr. Bowen and everyone at GBS!!

Dr. Bowen & team all do such a fantastic job of making us feel welcome & valued at every appointment! As an orthodontist, Dr. Bowen is highly skilled, in addition to always being warm, friendly & funny. We are nearing the end of braces for daughter #1 & will start exploring options for daughter #2 soon. You’ve made braces a much more pleasant experience than when I was a teenager!!
