He enjoys having a good laugh with his patients and values the individual connections he gets to form with each of his patients. Richie takes pride in his gentle, relaxed nature and has frequently received compliments from patients who have had bad or traumatic experiences at the dentist.
Outside of dentistry, Richie loves to keep active by working out at the gym, belting out his favourite tunes (in and out of the shower), reading self-development books or watching a good Netflix series. He also enjoys good food and is always looking for recommendations on the best eateries around!
