Richard Briscoe, DDS
I see my dental profession as a lifelong commitment to the service of my community. I want to create trusting relationships with my patients, so they know I will always provide them with the highest quality services and a gentle touch. The highest compliment I receive from my patients is when they refer their friends to us, or bring their children in for a checkup. I enjoy getting to know my patients over many ears, and have been honored to serve generations of local families.
Family and Community
I am originally from Winfield, Kansas, and have lived in Hutchinson for over 40 years. My wife, Jayne, and I have three grown sons and seven grand children. In my spare time, I enjoy golf, biking, working in the yard and spending time with family.
Hutchinson has been a great place to practice dentistry and raise our family. We are very appreciative for the support we have been given. We try to give back by supporting many Hutchinson organizations and our church. In addition, my son and I have started a scholarship at UMKC for dental students.
In the Practice
I enjoy helping our patients with their dental needs. From relieving pain to creating a beautiful new smile, my job helps each patient live a healthier, happier life. My highest goal in my practice is to serve my patients, and to create a positive and relaxing dental experience for them.
Our team is a wonderful and diverse group of people who truly care about their community. They all have the common goal of making our patients comfortable and are committed to their health and happiness.
Education and Continuing Education
Prior to practicing dentistry, I received my Bachelor of Arts from Kansas University in 1974 and my Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from the University of Missouri, Kansas City in 1978. Because dentistry is always changing and evolving, I must always study the newest technologies and methods. I want to make sure my patients are always given the most efficient and comfortable treatments available, and my continuing dental education helps ensure quality care. Each year, I participate in a minimum of 30 hours of continuing education, including all aspects of dentistry.
