Patient Reviews

  • “Thank you, Dr. Gregory Richardson, for a successful extraction today. The site of extraction is exceptionally clean, painless, and the experience was overall as pleasant as possible. This extraction was the preparation for an implant in a few months and I wouldn’t go to anyone else but Dr. Richardson and for that matter, anyone at OMS Partners. Thank you for the professionalism from beginning to end, as always, and that includes your wonderful staff as well.”
