Getting to Know Dr. Rudy Izzard

Dr. Izzard was inspired from a young age to be a dentist. Science always fascinated him and his family dentist was a dear friend who mentored him.

He was studious, but also athletic. He was so talented at football, he was given a football scholarship to the University of Texas at Austin.

At UT he received a bachelor’s in biology with a minor in biochemistry. Then he continued his studies at Baylor College of Dentistry and has also taken numerous advanced training courses in dental implants. Dr. Izzard has now been a dentist for over 20 years.

Previously, he had a private practice in San Angelo, Texas, that focused on IV sedation, dental implants, minor oral surgery and hospital dentistry.

He has had a practice at Lakeway Dentistry since the start of 2012. He enjoys the Austin area’s friendly people and its variety of cultural venues, such as music and dining.

He loves spending time with his wonderful wife of 30 years, Janice. They have a daughter, Allyn, who lives in New York City and a son, John Evan, in college. When he isn’t in the office Dr. Izzard loves to play with his two dogs: a Beagle and a Cocker Spaniel. He also enjoys exercising, golf, hunting and fishing.

Dr. Izzard’s lifelong passion for dentistry with a focus on dental implants, matched with his heart for helping others, makes him the best Austin dentist for your implant needs.
