Dr. Thaylan Bowman was raised in the Fort Dodge-Humboldt area. After graduating from Humboldt High School, Dr. Bowman relocated to Texas for 9 years where he obtained his Bachelor of Science degree at Texas A&M University and Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at UTHealth Houston School of Dentistry. He met the love of his life and fellow Midwesterner, Dr. Erika Bowman, while attending a genetics lecture at Texas A&M University. In 2023, the Bowmans decided it was time to come home and Community Health Center of Fort Dodge was the perfect fit for employment. Dr. Bowman enjoys reading, hunting, fishing, and staying up to date on his continuing dental education.
