About The Dawn Gayken Team

Her Dental Practice

Since 1993, Dr. Gayken has been providing patients in The Woodlands area both general and cosmetic dentistry. In 1995, she became a member of the academy of General Practice Orthodontics.

Dr. Gayken has worked very hard to build her successful practice and establish her name in the dental field. Although her office offers many services, from teeth cleaning to braces, her passion is full mouth reconstruction. She loves helping to restore her patient’s confidence and give them back the smile they’ve been missing.

New Technology

Because Dr. Gayken believes in providing the latest technology the dental industry has to offer, she is trained and certified to use Invisalign technology, the new invisible way to straighten teeth without the use of wires and brackets. While she does offer traditional orthodontic treatment as well, Invisalign is a cutting-edge option that literally changing the way orthodontics looks.

Another new technology that is only available in a handful of dental offices in the state is called CEREC 3D. The state-of-the art technology allows Dr. Gayken to digitally take a highly accurate three dimensional image of a tooth, and then it sculpts and makes the crowns and cosmetic veneers while patients wait.

Dr. Gayken Outside The Office

Dr. Gayken is happily married to the chef in the family, Charley, and they love spending time with their wonderful daughter. She enjoys volunteering at her daughter’s elementary school, evening walks with her 14 year old poodle named Punkin, and working out on her elliptical machine each evening while watching the Wheel of Fortune.

Giving back to the community she serves is very important to Dr. Gayken. She happily volunteers at the local girl scouts’ summer camp, where she also attended training to be a supervisor. Dr. Gayken is honored to work with these amazing young ladies, helping to inspire them to appreciate nature and grow into responsible, independent women.

Charley enjoys a successful career in the mortgage lending and real estate industry, but he’s also glad to take care of the marketing responsibilities for Dr. Gayken’s practice. Because he works so closely with the dental office, the patients have grown to know him and appreciate him always being available to answer questions.

The Gaykens are proud to serve and live in The Woodlands area. They appreciate the support, kindness, and friendship of all their patients, team members, and neighbors.
