Meet Dr. Maggie Augustyn
Practice Owner and Practicing Dentist
In my book, life is about people. It’s about connecting with people, about making the effort to create relationships. I don’t look at myself at someone who ‘fixes teeth.’ Teeth are not separate from the person. I have the honor and privilege of serving my patients and bringing them to better health. Watching my patients smile is what keeps me going. I pride myself on getting to know my patients. I want to be a resource, an educator and an advocate for the health of their mouth. It’s been said that if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life… well… I’ve never worked a day in my life”

On Life: Each day I try to be a better person than yesterday. I focus on growing as human being, a person as well as a provider. I encourage and support those around me to do the same. Growth and change is difficult and sometimes uncomfortable but it’s well worth the effort. The most important role in my life is that of a mother and wife.
