I have been a dental hygienist here in the valley for 20 years and have seen hundreds of Dr. Richards smiles. That is why we chose him for myself and my families orthodontic care. BIG two thumbs up for Dr. Richards and his great staff....Thank You so much!!

They made sure every single question I had was answered, and are always available if I think of any more questions I want answered. Their staff is the most friendly, welcoming staff I've ever dealt with. They are so warm and professional, and make the whole experience that much better. I love my new wider smile!
