We Are Inspired By This BOSS: Dr. Catrise Austin

Dr. Catrise Austin is a trailblazing expert in the field of dentistry. She is the author of a new book “5 Steps to the Hollywood A-List Smile”, professional speaker, entrepreneur, and founder of VIP Smiles-a modern dental practice in New York City and now also Los Angeles California.

Best known as the “Dentist to the Stars”, celebrities such as Former American Idol Judge Paula Abdul; Actor Anthony Anderson; Actor Malik Yoba; Dancing With The Star’s dancer Karina Smirnoff; Apprentice Diva Omarosa; America’s Next Top Model winner Eva Marcille; HBO’s Entourage Actor Rex Lee; Songstress Toni Braxton; TV talk show host Wendy Williams; and Grammy Award-winning rapper and actor Common (to name only a few) have all placed their teeth in her capable hands. Dr. Austin is on the first to offer on-site and mobile dentistry services tailored to the needs of entertainers, runway models, and professional athletes. Licensed in New York and California, Dr. Austin is able to work on both coasts providing cosmetic dentistry services backstage, at entertainment studios, and on photo shoots. Combining technology, mobility, and first-class care, celebrity dentist Dr. Catrise Austin provides the most innovative luxury dental service to her VIP clients.

But beyond the celebrated elite, Dr. Austin’s true goal is to empower and educate ALL about the importance of dental health as she believes that the benefits of dentistry can not only make you look and feel better, but now studies show that it can help save your life and live longer. In 2009,
Dr. Austin became the first private dental practice in the nation certified and trained to offer oral fluid HIV testing, which can be administered as a screening test during regular dental exams.  Most people wouldn’t think of it – but with rapid oral fluid testing technology now offering patients results in just 20 minutes— and recommended twice annual dental visits — the private dental office makes a very logical and innovative location to offer testing.  Dr. Austin has successfully incorporated HIV testing in her dental practice this year, offering this new service to ALL of her patients despite their age, race, gender, and marital status.  Dr. Austin would tell you that her patients have been very receptive to this new service and that she is testing patients for HIV that would not have ordinarily sought HIV testing. 

Dr. Catrise Austin is an award-winning dentist and columnist who has solidified her reputation in her field with national radio as well as national TV appearances on The Today Show, Discovery Health Channel and Good Morning America, among others. Dr. Austin is available for local and national interviews, as well as speaking engagements on dental health, HIV testing in the dental office, entrepreneurship, careers in dentistry, and improving your image with your smile. For bookings or for your next dental appointment, contact Dr. Austin at VIP Smiles, 212-262-6054. Let Dr. Austin change your life, with a smile!
