Our Doctors

Dr. Michael Lessner
I came here to Austin in 1984 to attend the University of Texas. After my studies in Zoology I attended the University of Texas Health Science Center Dental School in San Antonio (then rated #1 in the nation by U.S. News and World Report). Upon graduation I returned to Austin, like so many people do, to begin practicing general dentistry. In 1992, I was fortunate to find a beautiful dental practice situated in Hyde Park, just north of campus. This charming old house has been a dental office since the mid-forties. It is a wonderful environment in which to work — very homey and relaxed. Over the past 19 years, we have built a wonderful family practice that focuses on delivering the best in state-of-the-art dentistry in a relaxed, comfortable, small-town atmosphere. I enjoy providing all facets of dentistry to my patients, with a particular emphasis on aesthetic dentistry. Allowing our patients to be fully informed and knowledgeable about the treatment they need is of utmost importance to our office. We utilize state of the art instruments and equipment, like intra-oral dental cameras and state-of-the-art in-office power whitening. I am married and have a beautiful wife, Linda, and 4 very active children ages 4, 8, 10, and 12. When I’m not in the office, you’ll almost certainly find me rock climbing on the beautiful limestone cliffs along the Pedernales River, or playing with my kids at any of the local parks or swimming at Barton Springs Pool.
