David E. McGlohon, DDS
Dr. David McGlohon has proudly called North Carolina home for his entire life. His expertise ranges from general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry. Dr. McGlohon practices what he calls “Golden Rule” dentistry, in which he treats every single patient as he would like to be treated. He takes pride in restoring his patients to optimum function and aesthetics. Another large part of his practice involves the treatment of TMJ dysfunction, which involves treating jaw dysfunction, pain, and headaches. He is also very successful in treating the highly anxious patient, taking the time to listen and doing everything possible to meet their dental needs in a pain-free environment.
Dr. McGlohon is a native of Ayden, North Carolina where he attended Ayden High School and was salutatorian of his graduating class. While in Ayden, he was active in the Boy Scouts of America and earned both the Eagle Scout and God and Country Awards. During high school, he played on football, basketball, and baseball teams which were all undefeated state champs. After being recruited by numerous schools, he received a scholarship to play football and attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. There he completed his undergraduate degree, and then graduated from the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry. Since then, he has operated his own private practice in Rocky Mount, North Carolina.
Over the years, Dr. McGlohon has continued to further his dental education. He earned fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, which is a prestigious achievement for general dentists. He has also studied extensively at the L.D. Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education, as well as the Peter Dawson Institute.

On a personal note, Dr. McGlohon has been married to his wife, Maxie, for over 15 years. They have a 12 year old son, David, and they enjoy spending time with him. Their son has special needs with autism and a rare syndrome, so they do a great deal of advocacy and political work, raising awareness for children with special needs. Dr. McGlohon’s favorite hobbies include playing guitar and singing. Other special interests include fly-fishing, bike riding, dancing, and going to Broadway plays. He enjoys traveling with his family, especially to Ocracoke, the mountains of North Carolina, and New York City.
