Dr. Austins passion for dentistry is practically in his DNA.

Currently, Dr. Austin provides general dental care at his office, Austin Family Dental, located in St. Paul. He has been working out of this office since 1991. He raised his family and four kids in Vadnais Heights and is currently living in St. Paul, where he spends his free time with his family and his dog, Deke. On weekends, you can find Dr. Austin enjoying the great outdoors. In summer, he may be out on the water fishing or sailing, or relaxing with his family in his Wisconsin cabin. In winter, he enjoys hitting the slopes or snowmobiling.
