Care Philosophy

Biography

Dr. Rick Edwards was born and raised in Pocatello, Idaho. Around his teenage years, he realized he wanted to go into dentistry, inspired both by his mom's encouragements and his orthodontist neighbor. Originally, Dr. Rick intended to follow in his neighbor's footsteps and become an orthodontist; however, when he was at dental school, he found he was more interested in the oral surgery clinic and that the oral and maxillofacial specialty aligned better with his goals to help people.

During dental school, Dr. Rick went to Mexico to assist in cleft lip and palate treatment; after being able to truly help change people's lives, he knew there was nothing else he would rather do for his career. Dr. Rick enjoys working in a group practice with Dr. Carl, who he met and befriended in college, because it provides him with the opportunity to interact with and help several different communities. The ultimate reward for Dr. Rick is seeing patients out in public who remember being treated and thank him for the services he provided. He believes that helping people find solutions to their oral health problems and helping them start better lives is the best life he could imagine for himself.

Kent, WA |
Worst experience ever. First the communication from the initial phone call was in correct and misleading. Then when I ask about why the procedure wasnt going to be done like the person that called me said it was going to be, I was then treated like a disgruntled patient. Dr. Edwards came in very rude, kept cutting me off when I was trying to explain my frustrations. And kept being very condescending. I dont know how these 5 star reviews can reflect the same person I seen. I wouldnt refer anyone
Kent, WA |

I have had two extractions done at this office and could not be more pleased with them. My extractions were a rather urgent matter and the entire office worked with me to make the experience as easy and painless as possible. I want to give a special thanks to Jessica, she was kind and understanding when I really needed it. I have pretty bad history with dentist but these last two were a much appreciated change. Thank you too all the staff at the auburn location. I would highly recommend them.
We're so glad that you had a great experience and enjoyed working with our staff. Thank you for choosing us!
