Meet The Surgeons
Dr. Austin Ivey
Dr. Ivey enjoys all aspects of oral surgery but has particular interests in facial trauma, nutrition, and whole health approaches to surgery, bone grafting, and regenerative medicine within dentistry. He enjoys fly fishing, skiing, and college sports. You will often see him in the clinic wearing Jordan basketball shoes, which he says are great for standing long hours — but we really know it’s for his college team.
Dr. Ivey grew up in Greensboro, North Carolina. He attended undergraduate college and dental school at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, becoming an avid UNC fan over the course of the decade, completing his doctorate of dental surgery. He later moved to Texas and attended Texas Tech for Medical School where he earned his MD. While in medical school, he worked full time as a general dentist in Lubbock, Texas (while simultaneously enrolled in medical school) for 2 years and values this insight into his peers and the field of dentistry.
After Medical School, Dr. Ivey completed a residency internship in General Surgery and Trauma at JPS Fort Worth and Baylor Hospital. This was a unique experience providing insight and knowledge into total health, medicine, and complex medical patients and issues as well as life-threatening injuries and disease. His anesthesiology training was completed at Parkland Hospital in Dallas.
Returning to dentistry and oral surgery, Dr. Ivey attended Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas and the Texas A&M College of Dentistry for OMFS training. Here, he trained in facial trauma, reconstructive jaw surgeries, TMJ, and the full scope of dental surgery. He is a published author in implant dentistry, and also served as an editor for an Internal Medicine textbook for medical students. In Denver, he is a member of the Colorado Dental Associate, Metro Denver Dental Society, the ADA, AAOMS, and the Colorado Association of Oral Surgery.
