Meet Dr. Vincent Ip, Our Cosmetic Dentist
Dr. Vincent Ip, a native Texan, was born and raised in Stephenville, Texas. He is a graduate of The University of Texas at Austin and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from New York University College of Dentistry. He also completed a Residency in Dental Sleep Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco and Pediatric Preceptorship at the University of Florida College of Dentistry. Dr. Ip is a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) and a Diplomate in the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.
Upon graduation from NYU dental school in 2006, Dr. Ip moved to Las Vegas, Nevada where he practiced in a State-of-the-Art cosmetic dentistry practice. The practice was awarded for being the top Invisalign provider in the state each year that Dr. Ip was there. Although the bright lights in Las Vegas were fun, Dr. Ip wanted to get back to his Texas roots. He settled on his old college town, the ever growing and changing Austin to start his own practice. Smile 360 on South Lamar was born in 2012 out of his desire to care for people in the community in which he also lives.
Dr. Ip’s passion for dentistry is unmatched in the city of Austin. Regularly being called “Austin’s Best Dentist” is something not taken lightly. His office takes great pride in providing world class care. Smile 360 is proud to be one of the last privately owned practices in Central Austin.
Smile 360 is a functionally driven dental practice, meaning we care about your overall health and facial aesthetics, not just your teeth. Dr. Ip has adopted three pillars for the care of his patients – aesthetics, airway and alignment – the three A’s. Patient’s seek Dr. Ip’s unique philosophy of care from all over the world. His “dream sequence” would be that all his patients have aligned teeth, which help keep the airway in optimal function. This creates an aesthetically beautiful smile and face.
Dr. Ip is a proud member of:
- American Dental Association
- Academy of General Dentistry, Fellow
- American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, Diplomate
- Foundation for Airway Health
- Academy for Sports Dentistry
- American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
- Texas Dental Association
- Capital Area Dental Society
These organizations plus his continuing education hours, which far exceed the requirements by the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners, keep him current on all of the latest advancements in the dental world. He is always seeking the latest and greatest dental ideas and tools to ensure his patients receive the most current and up to date care possible in a caring and comfortable setting.
Dr. Ip gives back to the world community through his service with Flying Doctors of America and Smiles on Wheels providing care to some of the neediest populations in the world. The Ip Family is also very involved in the local school district, with a special focus on taking care of teachers. He and his wife, Lindsey, reside in Central Austin with their 3 children. They are avid sports fans and regularly follow the Longhorns, Cowboys and Mavericks. They love to travel and scuba dive. Their most exciting trip was an African Safari where they witnessed the Great Migration. They have aspirations of one day visiting all seven continents and diving with Great Whites. You might find them eating BBQ (Dr. Ip's favorite is Franklin Barbeque!), walking Lady Bird Lake or checking out the live music scene on their days off.
