Dentist Profile

Dr. Carol AustinYour smile becomes a work of art when Dr. Carol J. Austin combines the technologies of cosmetic dentistry with her talents as an artist who understands color and form. Dr. Austin is dedicated to provide you with the most comprehensive dentistry in a caring environment, a commitment that transforms lives daily. You'll notice the attention to detail.

"I was an artist before I was a dentist." says Dr. Austin, whose abstract acrylic paintings decorate the walls of her office. She describes painting as a voyage of self-discovery. "Art helps me express from deep within that which no words can describe," she says. "It led me to a strong emphasis on cosmetic dentistry in my practice, which makes me feel more creative and integrated as a person."  This quotation is from AGD Impact, May 2007 - Journal of the Academy of General Dentistry.  Link to the complete article
