Meet Dr. Carson Kutsch

Dr. Carson Kutsch is a unique small-town dentist. He grew up in Albany and attended both George Fox and Oregon State universities before earning his doctorate at the prestigious Marquette University School of Dentistry in 2005. Each year, Dr. Kutsch attends extensive postdoctoral studies in clinical dentistry, enabling him to provide his patients with some of the latest advances in dental technology.

Dr. Kutsch is married to the love of his life, Hayley, and they have three kids, Keeley, Tavi, and Beckett. They also have a wonderful dog named Zeeta. The Kutsches spend most of their free time with family and friends.

Meet Dr. Devin Bowyer

Dr. Devin Bowyer is our newest face here at Kutsch Dentistry. We are excited that he joined the team in April 2023!

A graduate of Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, he especially enjoys the oral surgery side of dentistry and is excited to advance his career and knowledge in both the surgical and cosmetic sides of dentistry. One of his favorite things about his job is connecting with patients and learning their stories. Dr. Bowyer met his wife, who is also a dentist, while attending dental school. Together, they live in Newberg, OR.

Dr. Bowyer is originally from Texas but has come to love the beautiful Pacific Northwest, since living here allows him to participate in some of his favorite hobbies. He loves hiking, golfing, and kayaking. He also loves scuba diving with his family. His favorite place to dive has been Palau because of the diversity of the coral reef and marine life.

Something fun about Dr. Bowyer is that he loves Disney music! You might notice some Disney tunes in his chair next time you visit.
