We are thrilled to announce the addition of Dr. Austin Owen to the My Family Dentistry team. We have spent the past year prayerfully seeking a dental associate who shares our passion for providing the best dentistry possible in an environment of comfort and ease. Dr. Owen shares that passion and lives up to our motto, “Comfort is our chief concern.”
Where Dr. Owen is From
Born in Nashville, TN, Dr. Owen spent equal time in Tennessee and Florida while growing up. He attended college in Chattanooga where he studied mathematics and met his future wife. He went to dental school in California where he earned multiple awards and recognitions for his hard work. Dr. Owen is always seeking to broaden his skills. He has become Invisalign certified and has received training in implant placement, grafting, and socket preservation.
However, some of Dr. Owen’s most important experiences in dental school actually occurred outside of the classroom. He led and participated in a student-run outreach clinic that provided free dental care to those in need, and went on a medical trip to Bangladesh that provided much needed dental care to those who regularly go without it. These experiences instilled a desire to make compassionate, mission-focused dentistry one of his top priorities.
Where Dr. Owen is Going
Since graduating from dental school, Dr. Owen has spent the last two years practicing dentistry in a small California town outside of Yosemite National Park. Despite such a beautiful setting, the Owens had a desire to move back to Tennessee where, as he puts it, “The grass is literally greener.” He is excited to join the My Family Dentistry team where he has been blown away by the compassion and the care that we provide for our patients.
Dr. Owen enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters when not helping to provide the best dental care possible. They share a love for the great outdoors and spend as much time hiking, camping, gardening, and cycling together as possible, as well as cooking meals as a family. Music is also a passion for the Owens family with Dr. Owen contributing by playing the violin, viola, and piano.
Dr. Mullins and the staff at My Family Dentistry are dedicated to continually providing the most compassionate and comfortable dental care for both children and adults of all ages. We are located at 7714 Conner Road in Powell. We are honored to be voted a top “Favorite” dental practice by the Knoxville News Sentinel’s BEST BUSINESSES contest in 2019.
