About

I purchased my practice over 30 years ago and decided that I wanted to make a country practice in the city. I was then lucky enough to attract staff that were from small towns themselves. I used to say that my practice was like “The Hotel California”.....once you came, you could never leave......... Well, the staff came, and they never left. I actually wonder if we will all have to go to the Retirement Home together and treat our patients there. Why Choose Us? Comfortable, Relaxing Environment Flexible Appointment Availability Friendly & Helpful, Long term Office Staff Serving the Community for 27 Years Member of the Ontario Dental Association Member of The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine

What are you proud of in your practice?

“My team has grown accustomed to being a part of a family that listens to the patient and works to deliver a positive experience in a warm and caring environment,” says Dr. Richardson.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy the patient experience more than the case itself. Having children in the office brightens my day, while complicated crown and bridge cases certainly challenge my treatment planning skills.

    Dr Friedman was very kind, friendly and listened to all my issues. I was clearly advised how to take care of any Dental related issues and she was very patient too. She didn't rush and took care of issues in a methodical manner. Her service was very professional and made my dentist visit very enjoyable. The rest of the staff also are very kind and friendly. I would definitely recommend this practice.

    I had such a wonderful experience visiting this dentistry. They are all such warm and welcoming people, from the receptionists to the hygienist and dentist (Dr. Friedman). I had not seen a dentist in a very long time because I did not have a great experience as a child, but they changed that for me. They were also very accommodating of my financial situation. I will definitely refer friends and family to them.

    Dr. Ron is very funny, I laughed all through my teeth cleaning. It was a fun experience, and he cared more about helping me take better care of my teeth so I don't have to see him more often.

    Great experience, and the staff are very friendly! Their dental tech is a little old school, but the dentist are very good at telling you what's going on during the check up, and they seem very knowledgeable and diligent in keeping records of your visits. They have an online system so if you want you can go to a different dentist and take your records easily with you.

    I went into the dentist office filled with anxiety because it had been a while since my last visit to any dentist. Dr. Ron Richardson calmed me down in the first moments of being there. He even looked in my mouth really quickly before even getting started and assured me there was nothing to worry about. Everyone had a very calm and light hearted demeanour, which I really appreciated. He was also so informative, I learned a lot from my trip there. I’m very grateful I found his practice!

    I was referred by my brother to visit Dr. Richardson for a change in dental care. I’m definitely one those people who absolutely do not find any pleasure in visiting the dentist. I was quite nervous at first, but as soon as the receptionist took care of me, I felt more at ease going in. Everyone there was very polite, respectful, full of knowledge and definitely made sure there was nothing to be nervous about. I plan on continuing and staying at this office!

I am a person who is anxious about going to the dentist, and I can tell you that Dr. Richardson effortlessly made my anxiety non-existent. Professional, friendly, and an asset to the community. Highly recommended.
