Dr. Rik brings a modern skillset to the office. He has extensively broadened his areas of expertise to serve you better!

Treatment Philosophy

A good listener, Dr. Rik gains an in-depth understanding of your wants and needs. He enjoys meeting people from all walks of life – and believes everyone has a story to tell. When you’re with him, you will be comfortable sharing your concerns and fears and asking questions about the treatment process.

Personal Life

When he’s not working closely with you to enhance your smile, Dr. Rik likes spending time with his family and friends, hiking, and working out. He has a pet goldfish named Goldie … and successfully taught her how to “floss!” Dr. Rik has mastered the art of roasting a perfect marshmallow and is also inexplicably good at rock-paper-scissors. He donates “the gift of life” – blood – every eight weeks.
