Dr. Rachel Fogarty
Dr. Rachel Fogarty moved to Texas at the young age of thirteen years old from Limerick, Ireland. She grew up in Round Rock and attended Westwood High School. She is a first-generation Aggie, having attended Texas A&M University for her undergraduate studies. With a keen interest in science and dreams of one day becoming a dentist, she earned her B.S. degree in Biology, and a minor in Psychology. She went on to pursue dentistry at Texas A&M College of Dentistry, to continue to Aggie tradition. In addition, she completed a post-graduate residency, earning a certificate in Advanced Education in General Dentistry. There, she learned more about cosmetic dentistry, digital density, implant placement, implant restorations, advanced surgical techniques, and more complex treatment options.
Dr. Fogarty values continuing education and encourages constant learning in the field. She graduated top of her class in dental school, and was inducted into the prestigious dental honor society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon. She is a member of the American Academy of Density, the Texas Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr. Fogarty had an interest in dentistry at an early age. She became even more drawn to the field because of the relationships that can be created with people. “I love getting to know somebody’s story. We all have different backgrounds, and dentistry allows me to not only enhance a person’s oral health, but also develop a trusting relationship that can be cherished by both the patient and doctor.” She aspires to make every patient feel as comfortable as possible and to enjoy coming to visit the dentist. She is also passionate about working with patients, providing them with the most suitable treatment options.
When she is not practicing, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Conor. The two got married on the West Coast of Ireland in 2018 near the Cliffs of Moher (the couple’s favorite place!). With Conor also being from Ireland, they enjoy traveling back to visit with family. Dr. Fogarty loves to spend time outside, one of the reasons she will never leave Texas! Her hobbies include skiing, running Town Lake, and attempting to cook. She could not be more excited to be working alongside Dr. Myers and associates and is honored to be back in the greater Austin area to serve the community.
