Our Practice

Dr. Jerry Richman loves practicing dentistry! He is celebrating over thirty-five years of giving Atlanta a better smile.His practice is a general dental practice with an emphasis in Cosmetic Dentistry. That means he can provide most aspects of dentistry in one location – with a natural cosmetic result.

Through his experience of teaching at Emory Dental School, and extensive continuing education, Dr. Richman provides the latest in dental restorations. He is one of the first dentists in Atlanta to provide Zirconium Procera all-ceramic crowns and bridges, which restore both front and back teeth.

Dr. Richman offers the ZOOM! one hour whitening process. Imagine having an immediate brighter, whiter smile without wearing whitening trays. The results are awesome!

In addition, he is an expert in cosmetic enamel and gum contouring. Our patients enjoy a brighter smile after regular cleanings and dental whitening.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality dental care in a comfortable, friendly environment. Our modern facility enjoys ceiling-to-floor windows overlooking the soothing forest of Vinings. A high fidelity sound system and original art create a pleasant atmosphere. Our friendly staff is knowledgeable in all aspects of Cosmetic Dentistry.

Dr. Richman also believes in keeping up with new technology that will benefit his patients. His office is digital, utilizing Kodak digital xrays. This new technology reduces radioactive exposure by 90%. He also utilizes an intra-oral camera to diagnose and communicate with patients. The Kavo diagnodent employs sonar-like technology to help detect decay.

He can also print photos of before-and-after results to share with you. Our Halogen-ARC Curing Light is the fastest, most efficient composite(tooth colored filling) dental light in dentistry. It will make our tooth-colored restorations stronger and quicker to complete.

Our front desk staff will conveniently schedule appointments. With the help of our Carestream Software System, we can help you plan the financial aspect of your treatment. In fact, we were the first in Atlanta to make paperless insurance claims! Now with digital xrays, we can transmit your xrays to insurance carriers or specialists.

Dr. Richman enjoys a long-term relationship with his patients. He considers his patients part of his extended family. It is not uncommon to regularly see patients for 10, 20, or even 30 years. “It is the privileged of traveling through life, and life cycles, that makes dentistry so rewarding,” shares Dr. Richman. With the rapid growth of Atlanta, as an international city, our practice sees people from every continent, every week(except Antartica).

Both his staff and patients are important to the success of his practice.
