Dr. Bovard earned both her Bachelor of Science in Biology with a focus in Cellular and Molecular Biology and Doctorate of Dental Surgery from West Virginia University. She is a member of the ADA (American Dental Association), PDA (Pennsylvania Dental Association) and AGD (Academy of General Dentistry).

Growing up she spent a lot of time around dentistry because her mother is a dental assistant and her grandmother is a dental hygienist.

Dr. Bovard prides herself in helping her patients achieve good oral health because to have a healthy body, it all begins with the mouth. She takes the time with her patients to help them understand how to maintain their teeth and have the smile they deserve.

Outside of practicing dentistry she enjoys being outside especially with her two corgis, finding new places to enjoy food and craft beers, and going to sporting events (especially WVU). She also likes to be at home binge watching TV series or taking a nice nap.
