About Dr. Lindsey

Dr. Carrie Lindsey is almost a native Texan. Having moved here at the very young age of one year old, she considers San Antonio her hometown.

Growing up, she enjoyed going to the orthodontist and always thought the office was such a positive place.  She was fascinated with the idea that teeth could actually be moved through bone and was interested in all the different appliances used to move them.   She loves working with people and applying science and art to each patient she gets to see here at Smiles of Austin.

 

Patient care

I love working with patients and parents and using science and art to create an incredible smile. I enjoy seeing the “before and after” of each adjustment as well as the overall result. I love making people feel proud of their smile and confident in their appearance.

 

Training

Dr. Lindsey attended the University of Texas in Austin and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology in 1995. She then attended the University of Texas Dental School at San Antonio where she received her Doctorate in Dental Surgery and graduated as Valedictorian of her dental class in 1999. She completed her Master’s Degree and Orthodontic Specialty Certification at Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas in 2001. The American Board of Orthodontics awarded her the Sheperd Award for highest academic achievement on the orthodontic board certification exam the year of her graduation. Dr. Lindsey practiced orthodontics in the Dallas area for four years prior to moving to Austin. She joined Smiles of Austin in 2008 and takes great pride in providing quality orthodontic treatment for both children and adults. As an active member of the American Association of Orthodontics, the Southwestern Society of Orthodontics, and the Texas Orthodontic Study Club she has received numerous awards and recognition for excellence in clinical orthodontic treatment.

COMMUNITY

Dr. Lindsey is actively involved in her community through volunteering for various school and church activities. I’m Booster Club Co-President at school this year.  It’s been a big job but I have enjoyed forming relationships with the other parents while working on various projects.
