Meet the Doctors
The Family feel of Austin Dental Clinic starts with the doctors. Dr. "Kenny" Austin and Dr. "Mindy" Austin met in dental school and were married in 1998. They have 4 children and stagger their work days to allow them to be involved in school activities. This schedule makes it possible for the office to stay open and a doctor be available 5 days per week.
