I'm a patient that lost contact after leaving Det 15 yrs ago, but will always remember Bill for his unflagging optimism. A wonderful guy from my side of the chair!
To one of the best in his field. I always savored Bill's knowledge and common sense. Bill will be missed by all.
Dr. Bowles was the kindest & caring person & the best dentist I ever had. He took away most of my dental fears & I became a dental assistant for a couple years here in the Detroit area. My condolences to his family. He really was a great man!
