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 years, 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 32 years. My wife, Jayne, and I have three grown sons and seven grandchildren. In my spare time, I enjoy golf, biking, working in the yard and spending time with family.
I love living in Hutchinson, and am active in our community. I coached basketball for 10 years and coached other sports while my sons were in school. We have donated to the Outreach program at UMKC for over 15 years and I went on a dental mission trip in 2005 to Venzuala. My son and I have now started a dental scholarship at UMKC for students. We give annually to many community charities, Boy & Girls Club, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Youth Friends, and others.
In the Practice
In my work, I enjoy helping our patients with whatever they need. From relieving pain to creating a beautiful new smile, my job helps each patient live a healthier, happier life. I cannot ask for more than that! My highest goal in my practice is to serve my patients, and to create a positive and relaxing dental experience for them.
After over 33 years in dental practice, I have been honored to meet and become friends with many wonderful people in our community. I enjoy building relationships with the patients and helping to improve their self-esteem through beautiful smiles. It has been fun to treat children and watch them grow. Some have even come back and bring their own children to our practice!
Our team is a wonderful and diverse group of people who truly cares about their community. They all have the common goal of making our patients comfortable, and our turnover is extremely low. That’s because my team loves our patients, and is committed to your 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 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.
