Meet Lauren Austin, DDS
Dr. Lauren Austin was born and raised in the Spring area and attended Klein High School, where she met her husband, Hayden. She attended Texas A&M University and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a dual degree in Biomedical Science and Nutrition. For her dental degree, she attended the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston, where she excelled in patient relations and clinical skills.
From day one of dental school, Dr. Austin knew that dentistry was what she was born to do. The technical aspect thrills her because every day brings a new challenge with regards to restoring a patient’s smile. She loves working with her hands, perfecting the “art” of smile design and restoration, and also being able to provide relief for patients who are in pain. The “people” aspect of dentistry is equally as thrilling to her. Dr. Austin loves being around people, talking to them (sometimes too much), hearing about what’s going on in their lives, and being a part of the community she grew up in. Being a part of a team who is passionate about those same things is a blessing to her.
In her personal life, Dr. Austin and her husband, Hayden, have three beautiful daughters, Hayley, Katelyn, and Taylor. They often spend their weekends cheering the girls on during soccer games, volunteering with girl scouts, mentoring at a local group foster home (Hearts with Hope), and her favorite — grilling some steaks and chilling out on the back patio. Dr. Austin looks forward to getting to know you and your family, too!
Meet Lori Rollo, DDS
Dr. Rollo grew up in Mont Belvieu, TX, and graduated from Barbers Hill High School. She attended Texas A&M University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a minor in chemistry. She then obtained her DDS degree from the University Of Texas School Of Dentistry at Houston.
For Dr. Lori Rollo, dentistry has always been what she wanted to do. Now, as a practicing dentist in Houston, she is positive she made the right career choice. Dr. Rollo believes that dentistry is a unique profession where she is able to make an immediate impact on the patient and their dental health. By helping her patients create a healthy and beautiful smile, she can also improve their overall health, well-being, and self-esteem.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Rollo loves to spend time with her husband, Ryan, and son, John. They enjoy spending time with family and friends, trying as many Houston restaurants as they can, and rooting on the Aggies!
Dr. Rollo has always felt so welcome at Texas Star Dental and she knows you will, too!

Our friendly and gentle manner will help your child feel at ease in our care, and having a positive dental experience during childhood can encourage a lifetime of good oral habits. We strive to make your child’s dental visits comfortable, comprehensive, and most of all, fun! We have TVs in each treatment room, a kids’ play area, and our younger patients love to pick a surprise from our treasure chest of toys at the end of each appointment.
