“I had some bad experiences with dentists and orthodontists as a kid. Not only did Dr.Richard have to work on my teeth - she had to work with me to overcome my anxiety.If you have chronic dental pain, you know how it affects every aspect of your life. The dull ache that occasionally gets worse, and then quiets down but never really goes away. That was me. I thought "bad teeth" was just another part of growing up. Gizelle worked with me to fix old problems and correctly diagnosed why I was having trouble in the first place. Over 25 years later - I like my smile. No more anxiety. I'm comfortable in the chair. Dr. Richard is an important part of my healthcare team. Valerie H, patient since 2000

“I have been coming to this office for several years now and always feel right at home. The staff is wonderful. I came to see Dr. Richard after another dentist told me I needed 2 crowns and I felt I needed a second opinion. After Dr. Richard did a thorough exam and x-rays, low and behold, no crowns were necessary. They always do an excellent job and I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else.” Kara B, patient since 2000

“Dr. Richard has taken care of 4 generations of our family. We love the care and attention to our needs, routine or emergency. The staff we have known for years and who know and remember us. Can't say that about too many businesses these days. Thanks for the years of great service.” Kathy J, patient since 2000

“Amazing staff and beautiful office! Even if you don't like going to the dentist, they will make you feel at ease with their gentle touch. By far the best dentist on the Westbank.” Kimberly A, patient since 2014

“I always hated going to the dentist as a child. If only Dr. Richard had been around then. I can honestly say that I enjoy my visits for dental hygiene. The staff are friendly and efficient making visits a cheerful experience.The building itself was designed by Dr. Richard to provide a comfortable healthy environment. Dr. Richard demands perfection in her work and it shows in your smile. I have had everything from whitening to saving two front teeth which I nearly knocked out. Consider me a very satisfied patient.” Shirley S, patient since 2014

“Many years ago, my daughter broke a tooth at school, and the office staff recommended Dr. Richard. I had not been to a dentist in 25 years, so I went with the advice of the school office staff, and Dr. Richard managed to see my daughter immediately. When I saw the care Dr. Richard and her assistants gave to my little girl, I became a fan. And after all those years of being scared to death of dentists, I decided to become a patient myself. Dr. Richard respected my fear (more like phobia), and I began to see her regularly. She turned my snaggletooth smile into one that I am no longer ashamed of. I wholeheartedly recommend her.” Anna H, patient since 2003

“Going to the Dentist has never been better!! As a future medical physician, I can say that both Gizelle Richard, DDS and Gabrielle Richard, DDS are high-class, skilled, and extremely personable dentists! They truly care about providing exceptional care to their patients while upholding the utmost professionalism in their field. I was a roommate of Gabrielle's and now her dental patient so I can personally attest to her hard work, diligence, and dedication to quality care. Gabrielle received many awards during her time at LSU dental school, yet she remains very humble, approachable, and easy to connect with. I feel comfortable asking her any question about my dental care and know she will provide a very thoughtful answer and excellent advice with a young professional's perspective!

If you're concerned about dental insurance, they offer world-class oral health care on their own terms and don't let insurance companies dictate a treatment plan. There is no discrimination based on insurance!! I recommend Gabrielle and Gizelle with no reservations and give them a well earned five-star rating!!”Lindsey B, patient since 2016

“I have been using this dental office for the last 4 years and I can't rave enough about the office, the staff and the doctor. The service is great. The environment is calming and extremely pleasant. The modern and state of the art equipment and treatment has been a pleasure. If you are looking for a dentist it is worth the drive from anywhere in the city!” Candace H, patient since 2012

 

"Dr. Richard and her staff are excellent in providing dental care and hygiene to me and my family forever 30+years. She was recommended by a friend when we moved to the west bank. Her professionalism, dedication and hard work in knowing her craft is awesome. She is not concerned about finances but wants to reassure her clients that her #1 priority is excellent patient care and accountability. I would highly recommend her with confidence. I have learned how to take care of my teeth and maintain them." - Joel M, patient since 1986

"The Doctors Richard are the best dentists that I have ever used. Now that Gabrielle has joined the practice, the range of practice and depth of expertise are extraordinary. I live out of state, but come back to them for "state of the art" dentistry and their personal attention. They know you and care about your health. And the staff, now joined by Del, make sure that all appointment details are done efficiently and thoroughly. I congratulate Gizelle for building and maintaining a rare practice."                                          Ron A, patient since 2010

"I've been a patient with Gizelle for 20 years. Clinically (I can vouch from experience) she's exceptional. More: She and her staff are personable, warm and efficient. No drama. If you decide to try her practice, that's one thing you'll be able to permanently strike off your life list of important things you need to have: good doctor, good mechanic, good plumber, good spouse, etc (She's not available as a spouse, but you get my drift.)" Bruce N, patient since 1997

"Many Years ago, our relationship started because my husband had an emergency, having never been to Dr. Richard before, she was able to accommodate him immediately and we have been more than patients ever since, I would describe us more as "fans" of her and her entire staff. The office is so very pleasant. We highly recommend Dr. Richard." Lori S, patient since 2008

"I have been a patient of Gizelle's for over twenty years. As a physician (with sensitive teeth), I'm very selective about my dental service providers. During that time, she has provided me with excellent, appropriate and consistent care. Her recommendation for braces (in my late 40s), greatly improved my smile, but is the main reason I have all of my teeth (in my 60s). Her office is pleasant and her staff, a pleasure to work with. I value their services so much, I go three times a year." - Ron C, patient since 1996

"Professional and welcoming, Dr. Richard is the consummate perfectionist and her staff is exceptionally well trained, responsive, and warm. I travel from Gulfport, MS to see Dr. Richard, and I know others who come from greater distances. I had extensive dental treatments spanning many months, and I wouldn't let my loved ones go anywhere else. If you want the best, you've found it."- George L, patient since 2011

"Outstanding and thorough! I visited from out of town and encountered a tooth issue. They were amazing in detail and the examination discovered my problem. I give them the highest recommendation." - Kathy P, patient since 2017

"I've been with Dr. Richard for about 12 years or so. She is one of, if not, THE best dentists out there! I've enjoyed the service and staff so much that I referred plenty of family and relatives to her practice. She's highly professional and a perfectionist at her work!"- Sajedeh S, patient since 2002

"Over the top professionalism. Always on time. Caring staff that takes a legitimate interest in you and your life not just your teeth. Have come here for 20 years and will come for 20 more!" David T, patient since 1996

"We have been going to Dr. Gizelle Richard for almost 20 years. Everything is ALWAYS spotless in the office, the staff is always friendly and helpful, and Dr. Richard always does her best (as close to perfect work as possible). My crowns always have always been an excellent color "match." The splint she made to prevent grinding has relieved the jaw pain I was having.

When we lived overseas, we would come back to see Dr. Richard and have our teeth cleaned once or twice a year. Our children tried dentists in other cities, but now come in from out of town to have work done by a dentist that they trust.She was recently joined by her lovely daughter so I expect the tradition to continue on." Mary M, patient since 2001

"Dr. Richard is outstanding. Her staff - from the front desk to the hygienists - are just outstanding and remember all our family members, are great with billing and appointment reminders, and basically we have never had 1 problem. Dr. Richard is very knowledgeable and realistic about what should be done to maximize our oral health. And a really nice person on top of it. I would recommend her to anyone." Michelle E, patient since 2013

"I have been going to Dr.Richard for over 10 years. The staff is always welcoming and friendly. Dr. Richard cares for her patients and thoroughly explains treatment plans. When I was younger, I had broken my front tooth and she was able to repair my front tooth, still looking great today! The hygienist is gentle, efficient, and friendly during my cleaning, and she always seems to have a great conversation with me!" - Rachel D, patient since 2004

"Excellent staff that does great work! Drs.Gizelle and now Gabrielle are thorough and compassionate first-rate dentists. Molly and the other members of the team round out a pleasant experience - even if it is going to see the dentist! ;-) Your teeth and you always leave in better shape than when you get there." - Pat J, patient since 2000

"I highly recommend Dr. Richard and her staff! The service there is excellent. I appreciate that they are all so professional and caring. I have never waited more than 5 minutes in the waiting room because they are always on time with their appointments. The staff makes you feel comfortable and always tells you what they are about to do and what you may hear/feel before they do it. I had to have a procedure done to fill in a groove on my front tooth that required them to cut away a little bit of the gum line. I was really nervous that this was going to be very noticeable visually, but everyone was very reassuring that it would look completely natural. And of course, they were right!" Manda O, patient since 2014

"My experience with Dr. Richard was beyond wonderful. Years back, I chipped one of my front teeth. My biggest concern was finding a dentist that I could trust and one that performed high-quality work. Dr. Richard was the first person that came to mind. She and her staff were accommodating and did whatever it took to get me an appointment. The outcome was phenomenal. I couldn't believe how my smile looked exactly like it did before the incident. This type of dedication to patients and their well-being is what makes Dr. Richard stand out. I am extremely grateful to have had this experience and highly recommend Dr. Richard!" Tayler P, patient since 2011

"Prior to becoming a patient of Dr. Richard I hated going to the dentist. It was always something I dreaded. This changed when I became a patient here. The service is excellent. Her staff is so warm and personable. They truly care about each patient and their well being. They've taught me so many important ways to keep my teeth healthy, and I feel I take care of my teeth better from the knowledge I've gained from her and her staff. They are also very timely and accommodating too. I don't think I've ever waited more than 5 minutes in the waiting room which is so important when having a busy schedule. I highly recommend Dr. Richard. She's amazing!!" Brittany O, patient since 2007

"Gizelle is one of two dentists that have ever been this proficient, caring and perfect over my 5 decades living in over 14 states and 4 countries.

I am still there because she takes a personal interest in my teeth and gums, is the most gentle dentist I've ever known, is always on time and is available on the rare occasion when I or a family member has had an emergency.

"As a Pre-Dental student, I have shadowed many dentists in the New Orleans area in order to meet dental school application requirements. Dr. Richard and her daughter Dr. Gabrielle are truly the perfect team and better than any other dentists I have worked with! They are not only kind but also always on the same page, extremely professional, and take pride in their final product -- your smile! After witnessing their work on crowns, implants, and fillings, it is clear that they want their work to be perfect for each and every patient. At each checkup, they look for ways to prevent dental problems which will save you money, time, and stress in the future. As a patient and Pre-Dental student, I would highly recommend having the Richards and their friendly staff as your permanent dental office." Julia D, patient since 2001
