Biography

Dr. Richardson was born and raised in Kalamazoo, MI. He is a second generation dentist. After graduating from Kalamazoo Central High School he obtained his Bachelor of Science degree at Hope College with a major in Biology and minor in Religion. While there he met his future wife, Tina. They were married during his freshmen year at Northwestern University Dental School. Mark loved living in downtown Chicago for 4 years and enjoys bringing his family back to visit. He graduated from Northwestern Dental School in 1992 with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. He was excited to move back to Kalamazoo and start his own practice in his grandpa's house, where his dad was already a dentist.

Dr. Richardson enjoys giving back to the community by volunteering at different events. He travels to Honduras every year on a medical/ dental mission trip through the Luke Society. He travels to different villages in the mountains with other dentists and helpers to treat the needy of that area. He looks forward to going again soon. His hobbies and interests include golfing, exercising and spending lots of time at all three of his children's sporting events.

I have spent a lot of time looking for a dentist for my young children. They did not have a good experience at our previous dentist. Dr. Richardson has been a life saver. He has been so patient with my oldest child and even sat on the floor to give her a shot. I would highly recommend Dr. Richardson to any young family.

Dr. Mark and his staff are amazing! They have taken excellent care of me and my family. They are very professional, do excellent work, and are extremely friendly. If you are looking for a cold, impersonal, clinical environment - this isn't your place. If you want a staff that will take great care of you and an excellent experience - go see Dr. Mark.

After reading Dr. Richardson's profile here, and seeing that it has him listed as an Endodontist and that he does root canals and treats tooth absesses, I called to make an appointment. I explained that I had an abscess and possibly needed a root canal and his secretary seemed very nice. I was ex-tactic in knowing that I had found an endodontist, good reviews and met all my critia. Later, got a message, that they had to cancel my appt., after seeing xray, you need a Endodontist. Change profile!
