Dr. Rowley, DDS

Dr. Rowley was born & raised in Spirit Lake, Iowa. In 2013, Dr. Rowley earned a degree in Biology with a minor in piano performance from The University of Iowa.

In May of 2018, Dr. Rowley was awarded her DDS degree from The University of Iowa College of Dentistry & Dental Clinics. Throughout dental school, she found that she enjoyed many aspects of dentistry very much. In particular, Dr. Rowley feels most fulfilled when she helps anxious patients relax through procedures.

Breana, Receptionist

Hi! I’m Breana, receptionist at Cheyenne Mountain Dental Care. It goes without saying that I’ve always been a people person so it’s no surprise that I feel right at home as the first smile you see when you walk in the door. I do my best to give a friendly feeling & genuine conversation to every patient, providing the experience I would expect to receive.

I attribute my love for people to my mom who always taught me that every person you meet has something to give you, you just have to be open to receiving it. Words of wisdom that lead me to meet my husband who was meant to give me our two perfect children & the crazy, beautiful life we’ve created.


Mary, Front Office Lead

Hi, I’m Mary, benefits coordinator for Cheyenne Mountain Dental Care. I have worked for this practice for over five years. In those five years I have learned so much about the importance of working with great people. We are a family here. Working together to make a difference in the lives of our patients makes us even closer.

On my time off it’s important for me to make the best out of every minute I have. I love to spend time with my children who mean the world to me & always manage to keep me young at heart. When the days seem long or a bit of stress sets, in I find that a walk in the dog park, or a day spent window shopping & restaurant hopping in Manitou is a great way to recharge.
