We start by evaluating the whole wellbeing of an individual; which results in a personalized treatment plan that matches your health goals to that of your beautiful smile.
Our philosophy is based on an integrative holistic preventative approach to oral wellness with a primary objective to save your natural teeth and prevent oral and chronic diseases.
There is an association between chronic systemic diseases and the condition of your mouth. Our approach to dental wellness is actually an overall wellness approach.

Office is comfortable, staff is professional and courteous. Dr. Richter took his time explaining the procedures and preventative care. Overall great.! Would definitely recommend to friends/family.
Phenomenal! Dr. Richter is always extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The one aspect that certainly stands out above the rest is the level of cleanliness, this is THE CLEANEST office I have ever been to.
Very professional staff and an honest recommendation what would be required for my future treatment! Loved my cleaning! I will come back to complete my treatment plan as outlined by Dr. Richter.
Periodontal diseases are infections of the structures around the teeth. These include the gums, the cementum that covers the root, the periodontal ligament and the alveolar bone. Periodontal disease can lead to bone loss, tooth loss and systemic diseases.
Research has shown that the same bacteria that damages the tissue in your mouth has been found in plaque locations along your cardiovascular system. This suggests that bacteria infiltrates the bloodstream after it causes damage.
Researchers have discovered a link between the bacteria that causes Gum Disease and the advanced mental deterioration found in Alzheimer’s disease. The risk of developing Alzheimer’s has been found to be up to 6 times higher in patients with Gum Disease.
Nutrition can play a major factor in the way we feel and how we deal with infections. Lack of vitamin D for example, can constitute a higher risk of tooth attachment loss in patients with periodontal disease.
