THE TEAM

MEET
Dr. Jessica M. Gower

Dr. Gower has been living in the Lowcountry since 2007 and feels incredibly fortunate to practice dentistry alongside amazing providers and patients. She’s thrilled to welcome new patients in the Beaufort area and share her passion for dentistry to benefit the community. Dr. Gower takes pride in building strong relationships with her patients, ensuring a relaxing and uplifting dental experience. With her extensive knowledge of aesthetics, proportion, and appreciation for beauty, she brings these qualities to every dental procedure, resulting in beautiful, strong, and healthy smiles for her patients.

Dr. Gower is well-versed in various treatment modalities, including implant restorations, conscious sedation, teeth straightening treatments, pediatric dentistry, root canal treatment, and preserving natural teeth. She feels grateful to call the Beaufort area her home, where her husband, Dr. Emerson Gower, a veteran Navy dentist and owner of High Point Family Dentistry and Hampton Dentistry, resides alongside their lovely daughter, Lula, a future ballerina. During her free time, you’ll often find Dr. Gower going on adventures with her family, offshore fishing, training for half marathons, exploring the great outdoors, and of course, cheering on her favorite college football team.

MEET LAUREN

Lauren is the Operations Manager for Gower Family Dentistry, and is the ultimate example of a woman who leads with kindness! She will be the smiling face that greets you at your first appointment. Behind the scenes, Lauren makes sure your accounts are accurate and works as an advocate on your behalf with your insurance company. She trains our new team members and is our team mom! She is truly the best in the business and why we are successful. In her free time, she loves riding her horse “P”, and spending time on the boat with her husband, Jason, and their two dogs, Goose and Copper. She looks forward to meeting you at your new patient appointment!

MEET TOMEKA

Meet your Patient Care Coordinator, Tomeka! Tomeka is typically the first person to greet you on the phone and when you walk in the door to our office. Her compassion and kindness show in all she does. Tomeka was born and raised in St. Helena and the lowcountry is her forever home! In her spare time, you can find Tomeka spending time with her husband, a local dock builder, and her four children. She loves to go to work with her husband on the weekends and fish while he works! Tomeka can’t wait to meet you at Gower Family Dentistry!

MEET BRANDY

Meet Brandy, your dental assistant! With 24 years of experience, we could not ask for a dental assistant more in tune with her doctor! In addition to her knowledge of the dental field, Brandy also brings comedic relief to the office, keeping all of us smiling and laughing! Brandy is a proud Army brat and Army mom. She loves the low country and has called it home since 2004. When Brandy is not at work you can find her tending to her plants, working on her photography side-hustle Frameables, and enjoying the sunshine.
