Roanoke Valley Dental
Alice Pham Bower, D.D.S.
Dr. Alice Pham Bower grew up in the San Francisco bay area. She completed her undergraduate studies at the University of California, Berkeley, earning a Bachelor's of Arts degree in Molecular and Cell Biology. She graduated from the University of California, San Francisco with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2010. After earning her license to practice dentistry, Dr. Bower worked in private practice and then in corporate dentistry. Her experience in corporate dental offices clashed with her philosophy of individualized care, which greatly motivated her to purchase her own office so that she could practice in a way that aligns with her values. She opposes the current trend of healthcare providers being forced by third parties to become production line workers instead of healers. Her dental philosophy is reflected in her emphasis on quality over volume. It is important to find a dentist that keeps your best interest in mind. She took over a local dentist's practice in 2014 and has been making progress updating the office. She plans to serve the Roanoke Valley as a family dentist for many years to come.
In her spare time, Dr. Bower enjoys spending quality time with her husband, hiking, biking, reading, quiet contemplation, seeking out new food to try and recipes to make, learning new techniques in dentistry from the dental community and finding ways to improve her office.
