Dr. Austin Sidney Hodges - Board Certified Orthodontist:

Dr. Austin Hodges was born and raised in Amarillo, TX where his family still lives.  He attended Tascosa High School where he was a member of the baseball team.  During his summer breaks, he attended dental mission trips to Babicora, Mexico where he found his passion for the dental field.  Dr. A Hodges received his undergraduate education at Texas A&M University where he graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 4.0 in Biomedical Sciences.  He went on to receive his four-year dental training at Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry where he graduated number 2 out of 103 with a 3.99 GPA (Just behind his twin brother Dr. Patrick Hodges).  After finishing his dental school education he went on to complete an additional three-year orthodontic residency program at the Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry where he received his orthodontic certificate and masters in Oral Biology.  Immediately after completing residency, Dr. A Hodges completed the requirements and examination to become Board Certified which is a distinction held by only 35% of the orthodontists in the United States.

The Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry Orthodontic Residency is considered one of the top orthodontic residency programs in the nation due to the extensive three-year clinical education it provides.  During residency Dr. A Hodges treated a litany of complex cases using the newest approaches in orthodontics including: Invisalign, lingual, clear, and self ligating braces, miniscrews, rapid palatal expansion, laser and radiosurgical procedures, interdisciplinary jaw surgery, herbst therapy, and complex adult treatment.

Outside of orthodontics, Dr. A Hodges enjoys spending time with family and friends, running, lifting weights, hunting, and community involvement.  He is excited to be heading home to serve the Amarillo community.
