He was born in Harlan County, and grew up in Middlesboro, Kentucky. After graduating from Eastern Kentucky University with a B.S. in Biology, he then moved on to the University of Louisville School of Dentistry where he graduated in 1988. Since that time he has kept his passion for dentistry fresh by taking continuing education courses that keep him up-to-date in his profession. This diverse range of classes and topics range from facial growth and development in children to special techniques for complete denture fabrication; from conservative techniques of preventing tooth decay to the replacement of missing teeth with dental implants.
Since graduation Dr. Flowers has completed two post graduate programs for general dentists in orthodontics, and has acquired over 700 hours of post graduate continuing education in the field of orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, craniofacial pain and TMJ dysfunction, and snoring and sleep apnea. This background of training allows him to pursue his area of special interest, which is helping patients with TMD (temporomandibular disorder), migraines, and sleep related breathing disorders (such as nighttime tooth grinding, snoring and sleep apnea). We have excellent success in treating patients with chronic daily headaches, migraines, and TMJ pain and dysfunction. His holistic and conservative approach to treatment has given him tremendous success in helping him improve the lives of his patients. He firmly believes in working with other healthcare practitioners in the best interest of his patients, whether it is a massage therapist, chiropractor, osteopathic physician, or medical physician.
