||Dr. McGown has been serving the Greater Houston Community in the capacity of a Pediatric Dentist for over 42 years. He started practicing at this location in 1987 and has ever since been here all the time for his little patients through their childhood and growing up years. It is amazing that his patients now bring their children and some even their grandchildren to him for their dental care. His focus has been prevention and by using preventive techniques like regular check ups, education of children and parents about importance of oral hygiene measures, sealants and fluoride, he has been able to keep a lot of children through out his career absolutely "cavity free". Some who have had cavities as they started coming to his practice have grown to become cavity free eventually. His philosophy of prevention has worked wonders over all these years in keeping these kids out of discomfort and pain. Dr. McGown is a member of American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association,, Texas Dental Association, Greater Houston Dental Society, Houston Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and Texas Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
He is also actively involved in community service through Grace Presbyterian Church in the Greater Houston area. He enjoys golfing and traveling - the travel trips with his wife are special when they entail meeting up with their 13 grand children !!
