Hickory NC Dentist

Be the Reason Someone Smiles Today!

Welcome to the website of Dr. Richard Troutman. We are a general dentistry practice that treats patients ages three and up, and are equipped to be your entire family’s home for dental care. We have earned a favorable reputation through the years of treating our patients as we would our friends and family members.

We understand that life moves at lightning speed and dental appointments often mean time must be scheduled away from work, school and outside activities. We are respectful of your time and operate our schedule so that we consistently run on time.

We also realize that emergencies occasionally happen, and we build time into our schedule to address our patients’ dental emergencies when they arise.

Our Patients Are Like Family to Us!

We take a compassionate approach to treatment, and our goal is to provide the optimal care that you desire. For some patients, that means having every issue treated and restored to ideal condition. For others, it’s cosmetic procedures. For some patients, it means simply getting them out of pain and working toward being on a preventive treatment schedule instead of only visiting the dentist when they’re in pain. We recognize that what is best for one person isn’t always best for another.

Our goal is to provide the level of service you desire, while educating you on how to properly care for your teeth, gums and dental restorations. While we want to seek ideal care, we understand life circumstances do not always allow this. We will respect your choices without judgment help you any way we can.
