Meet Dr. Nuñez

Dr. Austin Nunez

Dr. Austin Nuñez was born and raised in Reno, Nevada. he attended college at the University of Nevada and majored in Biology. During this time, he volunteered at a dental clinic for underserved children. This experience lead him to what he wanted to dedicate his life to.

He attended Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2010. He then moved to Austin, Texas to practice general dentistry as a member of the National Health Service Corps. Dr. Nuñez really missed working with children. He returned to school and attended UCLA and received his certificate in Pediatric Dentistry as well as his master’s in Public Health.

He met his wife, Dr. Jennifer Nuñez, while they were in dental school in Nebraska. All of Dr. Jennifer’s siblings live in the Bay Area and they are so excited to be back together again. When not in the office, you can find Dr. Nuñez rock climbing, skiing, mountain biking, or playing some golf. Dr. Nuñez has been seeing patients at Santa Rosa Pediatric dentistry since June, 2019 and has been a wonderful addition to our pediatric dental team.
