Following the expansion, the dental office located at 8825 Bee Cave Road, Ste. E, Austin, will now offer root canals, deep cleanings, gum disease therapies and whitening treatments. Additionally, doctors will use 3D technology to perform surgical procedures such as dental implants and wisdom teeth removal in-office. The Westlake location will also be able to offer IV or oral sedation upon request. Westlake Smile Designs was founded by Dr. Todd Ehrlich, who passed away last year following a motorcycle accident.
“We had a great deal of respect for Dr. Ehrlich, who we considered a friend as well as a colleague,” said Austin Dental dentist Dr. Albert Olivares. “His patients and team were like family to him, and we know that he would want someone to take care of them in the same way he would. We feel honored we were entrusted to carry on his legacy.”
Austin Dental is scheduling appointments at their Westlake location for existing patients or their Parmer Lane location and Westlake Smile Designs, as well as for new patients. 512-263-8332. www.lifetimedental.com
