Dr. Margaret Houting is a Wauwatosa native, and daughter of Dr. Fred LaCourt, co-founder of Generations Family Dental. Dr. Houting wanted to follow in her dad’s footsteps and join a profession that is about caring for people and building relationships.
Dr. Houting attended Marquette University for her undergraduate degree, majoring in Biomedical Sciences. She continued her education at Marquette University School of Dentistry, where she obtained her Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree, graduating Cum Laude.
After graduation from dental school, she moved to Kansas City to begin her dental career and to follow her husband, who is in the Air Force.
Dr. Houting believes being a healthcare provider is an important role in the community. It is not only to care for their oral health, but their overall well-being. She understands the importance of trust in the dental chair, and focuses primarily on providing exceptional care, because she has learned from the best (her dad!).
In her free time, Dr. Houting spends time with her two dogs. She and her husband love to go out to eat and try different restaurants. She also loves to travel and partake in outdoor activities, including running, biking and hiking.
