Harley M. Richards, DDS
My personal mission is to use the experience I’ve gained in over 38 years of residency and private practice to provide the highest quality care available in modern dental science.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. Harley Richards grew up in Lakeland, Florida. His father was a general dentist and his grandfather was a general surgeon. As such, he was exposed to medicine and dentistry at an early age. His father could fix anything and enjoyed planes, motorcycling and boating so Dr. Richards was exposed to all of these activities in his youth.
Dr. Richards has been an innovator in implant dentistry. He recognized that a business model providing both the surgery and restorative work under one roof would provide a valuable service to his patients. Over the last 20 years, his practice has evolved in this direction providing teeth the same day for thousands of patients.
In October 2007 Dr. Richards traveled to Toronto Canada to operate with Dr. Lesley David. There he learned the technique for placement of zygoma implants for patients with dental bone loss. Florida Dental Implants and Oral Surgery – New Teeth Now is one of the few practices in the world that place zygoma implants. New Teeth Now operates from a 16,000 sq. ft. state of the art facility. In addition to providing a relaxing atmosphere for their patients, the facility provides a venue for education seminars given by Dr. Richards and Dr. Kirkpatrick.
