Michael Austin, DMD

Known as Dr. Mike, by his patients, Michael B. Austin is a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist. Dr. Mike was born in California and grew up in Utah. While attending the University of Utah, he played football for the Utes and spent two years on a mission trip in Chile, which made him fluent in Spanish.

Dr. Mike went on to attend dental school in Pittsburgh and a two-year anesthesiology residency in Stony Brook, on Long Island. During this residency, he met his future wife and discovered the joy of working with children. This led him to complete a residency in pediatric dentistry in Brooklyn, NY. Having a heart for service, Dr. Mike has participated in mission work both here and abroad. 

The beautiful scenery and culture of the PNW led Dr. Mike to Washington, where he and his wife and dog, now call home. Outside of dentistry, Dr. Mike enjoys watching college football, cheering for the Seahawks, snowboarding (favorite spot: Snowbird), playing golf (favorite spot: Guam), reading, traveling (favorite spot: Maui), and spending time at the many wonderful dog parks of Western WA with his wife and dog.
