Harris R. Brown, D.M.D.

Legacy means a lot to Dr. Harris Brown and his family. After all, it was Dr. Brown’s grandfather, Dr. James Brown, Jr., who began the passion for dentistry and love for Mobile that runs so strong through the Brown family. In 1919, Dr. James Brown, Jr. moved to Mobile to start his practice – the first orthodontic practice in Mobile. Dr. Harris Brown’s father, Dr. James E. Brown, III, a general dentist, and his uncle, Dr. Willis Brown, an orthodontist, also practiced in Mobile. For over 90 years, the Brown family has been providing exceptional dental care to the Mobile Bay area!

With his expertise in periodontics, Dr. Harris Brown has also been continuing that legacy for over 30 years. A native of Mobile, Dr. Brown graduated from UMS in 1972 and attended the University of Alabama for his undergraduate studies. He followed in his family’s footsteps by attending the University of Alabama Birmingham School of Dentistry, where he graduated in 1980. He went on to complete a residency in periodontics and has been in practice since 1982.

Dr. Brown is known as an expert in implant dentistry and periodontal laser therapy. He stays on the cutting-edge of technological advancements in periodontics through active membership in many leading dental and periodontal organizations, including the:

  • American Dental Association
  • American Academy of Periodontology
  • Alabama Dental Association
  • Mobile Area Dental Association
  • Alabama Society of Periodontists

Dr. Brown enjoys being outdoors fishing, boating and hunting. He and his wife, Margaret, have two children, Ann (Brown) Madsen and Dr. H. Radcliff Brown, Jr. His son is a general dentist and continues the family tradition of dentistry.
