Rowan P. McQuarrie, DDS, FAGD

Dr. McQuarrie is an active member of the American Dental Association and a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD). He is also a type 1 member of the Society of American Indian Dentists (SAID). In 1987 Rowan moved his young family to Steamboat Springs, Colorado. There his three children were able to grow up in a small town environment, play soccer, swim all summer then ski and snowboard all winter. Besides being a full time dentist over the past 25+ years, Rowan became a paramedic and worked a full time shift for eleven years with the Steamboat Springs Rural Fire Protection District. In addition, he taught pre-hospital medicine courses for twelve years at Colorado Mountain College and provided advanced life support coverage for the Steamboat Springs Ski Patrol for ten years.

Rowan is also an avid scuba diver, skier and photographer. To maintain ties to his Scottish Ancestry, he started playing the Bag Pipes in 1995 and has played for funerals, weddings and even performed an impromptu bag pipe concert for a group of school children in Fiji. Anthropology led Dr. McQuarrie to a study of tattoos and their role in various cultures. Eventually, Rowan became a tattoo artist after graduation from the world’s only Tattoo school in Detroit, Michigan.

Dr. McQuarrie; a Lakota descendent, is involved in the Native American Community in Missoula in many ways. Most notably as Vice Chairman for the Missoula Indian Center Board of Directors and also in ceremonial and cultural activities here in Missoula and in the Dakotas.
