Dr. Robin Bethell
Robin Bethell is a general dentists who believes that dentistry should improve health, be more efficient, and should improve the community. With the help of a team of compassionate and like-minded dental professionals, he created Forest Family Dentistry in Austin, Texas in 2012. Since it’s opening, FFD has grown to improve dental health using technology, become more efficient and affordable, and has grown to help improve the community around it. Dr. Bethell is committed to continue studying and improving the Forest Family model of dentistry, and is so honored and proud of what team FFD has done.
At 23 years old, he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery, and got right to work.He studied dentistry at the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, pursued thousands of hours of postgraduate training in Oral Surgery, Orthodontics, and Pediatric dentistry, and Cosmetic dentistry in the first 5 years after becoming one of the youngest dentists in the nation. He slowly developed (and is still developing) a model for how dentistry should be. Like many others, Dr. Bethell fell in love with the city of Austin, and decided to develop and improve the model of dentistry in the heart of his favorite community.
Today, Dr. Bethell can most likely be found at one of our two offices seeing patients or with Dr. Rick Donkersgoed brainstorming about the the future and studying to improve his craft. He is active in growing dental professionals and can also be found mentoring and training UT pre dental students, and improving the community through philanthropy and service. And on a rare occasion, you might find him out and about in Austin, exploring and enjoying all the great food, music, and outdoors that this wonderful city has to offer.
