Dr. Williams


Richard M. Williams, DDS

Advanced oral and maxillofacial surgical skill is founded on a quality education.

“Dentistry is a long-standing tradition in my family, but oral surgery was always a draw to me because of the potential to make a big difference for people with serious, complex needs. From the beginning, I knew that in order to offer the very best care to my patients, I’d have to work hard at getting a quality education. I feel that in addition to my DDS degree, the extensive advanced training I’ve received has given me an excellent foundation of skills and knowledge. Today, I believe that the results I achieve for patients speak to the value of this additional training. It’s definitely been worth the extra time and effort.”
