What People Say About Dr. Richard Richter, DMD

I have been seeing Dr Richter for the past year. After years of feeling uncomfortable and seeing several offices for dentistry work I can say I finally found someone who takes the time to listen to my concerns and explains clearly every detail about his work. His work is top notch and his office staff is warm, professional and inviting. The offices are conveniently located, plenty of parking and carry cutting edge technology to take care of his patients needs. I highly recommend Dr Richter.

My family and I have been going to Dr. Richter for many years. I have to say when you are looking for a dentist you seek a dentist whom you can trust. In all my years I have never met a more compassionate Doctor/Dentist. Several years ago I became sick. I had a syndrome and Doctor Richter was the only Doctor out of 6 specialists to give me his time and Devotion to his craft. On July 4th weekend he came to his office to treat me without hesitation. His professionalism and his staff are absolutely

Absolutely the best. Patient, kind. caring. My daughter had a huge fear of the dentist. Dr. Richter worked with her and calmed her fears. Took his time and made her feel very comfortable.

I have been treated by Dr. Richter on multiple occasions over several years. He has performed various procedures on me, and I have always been amazed at how painlessly and skillfully he has done his work. He has at all times been gentle and caring, and he has even followed up personally with a telephone call to be certain that I was not in pain or having any sort of a problem (thankfully I have never experienced pain or any other problem after seeing Dr. Richter).. His staff is also excellent.

Dr. Richter treated me for a root canal and a crown. I am a terrible patient and get the jitters as soon as I even think about going to the dentist. I require a lot of novocaine!!! He was very good with the injections--so gentle and careful. The entire procedure went well, and I was very happy with the results. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Richter is the most gentlest and pain free dentist that I have had in my 62 years. His office and staff are the most kind and gentle staff. His office is the most technical I have ever seen. Go see Dr. Richter and you will be pleasantly surprised with his golden hands.

My friend Susan recommended Dr Richter as I was in NY on vacation and desperately needed a dentist. His office immediately made time for me. He was so nice and has some serious skills! He would definitely be my dentist if I lived in NY!

Most professional dentist I have used over the last 38 years. Dr Richter is a gentle and caring doctor. His staff are all warm and friendly making you feel relaxed . My family and I travel over an hour from my house to the office. Dr. Richter did my root canal, I was extremely nervous yet, by the end of the procedure I felt like is was being treated as part of the family. I've recommended many friends over the years. Great experience. Would recommend !

Worst experience at a dentist I've ever had in my 40 years of going to one. I've never been in so much pain during a root canal in my life. No amount of local anesthetic could dull the pain I was subjected to, I was literally white knuckled to the chair! Dr. Richter's assistant didn't do the job correctly and then when Dr. Richter tried to fix his mistake he insisted on doing the root canal through the crown that was installed. Big mistake! Now my tooth is extremely sensitive to touch.
