Meet the Doctors

Dr. Dane V. Hoven • DMD

Dr. Dane Hoven, originally from Mississippi, now calls Birmingham home. She knew from an early age that she wanted to be a dentist. A decision she credits to, of all things, a car accident. At the young age of sixteen, she was involved in a fairly severe automobile accident. Luckily, she walked away relatively unscathed. However, the accident damaged several of her teeth, which required a great deal of in-depth dental treatment. She became fascinated with the remarkable techniques used by the various doctors who gave her back her big, beautiful smile. It was during these countless dental procedures, Dr. Hoven realized she wanted to become a dentist so she could help people in the same way.

Dr. Hoven is a graduate of the University of Alabama and the University of Alabama School of Dentistry. While in dental school, Dr. Hoven received the Alabama Section of American College of Dentists’ Scholarship. She is also the recipient of the American Academy of Oral Medicine’s Certificate of Merit in Oral Medicine.

Upon graduation from Dental School, Dr. Hoven completed a two year residency in general dentistry, serving as chief resident in her second year. Dr. Hoven currently practices both general and cosmetic dentistry and has done so since 2006.

When Dr. Hoven is not serving her patients, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Brian, and their twin boys, Thomas and Clark.

Dr. Megan Morgan • DMD

Dr. Megan Morgan is originally from Texas but her family is now settled in Birmingham. She came to Alabama to attend Auburn University in 1997. Dr. Morgan always knew she wanted to work in the medical field but did not decide on dentistry until she became a student at Auburn University. Dr. Morgan chose dentistry because it offered a large variety of services to benefit patients: from preventative/education to restorative to providing cosmetic services improving patients overall oral health and self-image.

Dr. Morgan graduated magna cum laude from Auburn University and went on to attend and graduate from UAB School of Dentistry in Birmingham. Upon graduation from dental school, Megan entered private practice where she obtained a wealth of valuable experience in general and cosmetic dentistry.

Away from the office, Dr. Morgan enjoys spending time with her husband, Russ, and their four children. The family enjoys spending time at Lake Martin in the summer and Auburn in the fall.
