  • "Hello friends! Some of you may remember me. I used to be your dentist! Now Daniel is mine. When it became apparent to me that I was going to have to retire early due to health problems, I began my search for another dentist to bring into my practice. What you may not know is that I began that search about a year before finding Daniel. I took my job very seriously and was not about to entrust your dental health to just anyone out of dental school. Then, as many may remember, Daniel worked in my practice for a year before I would turn over the helm to him. Daniel stood head and shoulders above the other candidates. What I saw that you as patients could not see, was the quality of Daniel’s dental work as well as his people skills. I have entrusted him with my family (and that includes each and everyone of you) because I KNOW him to be a gifted dentist when it comes to his ability to do hands on dentistry..."

  • "I have been a client of Dr. Daniel Richard’s since he started in practice 12 years ago. I also am very, very picky about the dental care of my teeth. Dr. Richards has been proactive and reactive toward every level of my dental needs as I have aged. He is genuinely concerned with patient care and is always helping me make educated decisions that are in my best interest. I am a senior citizen and have great teeth thanks to Dr. Richards and his staff."

  • "My family and I have been using Dr. Daniel Richards for our family dentistry since 2004. We are very pleased with the quality of dental care we have received. We all have very full schedules and the office staff is always friendly and accommodating. When we have encountered a need for

    additional dental work, Dr. Richards has provided us with great references.

    It has been our pleasure to get to know Dr. Richards and his staff and we would recommend their services to both friends and family."
    - B. Wilson
