Meet Dr. Simpson
Richard W. Simpson V, DMD
Welcome to Simpson Family Dentistry! We are glad that you are interested in our dental practice and we hope you chose our office to serve the dental needs of you and your family.
I truly love the profession of dentistry. I wanted a challenging job that would allow me to help others while making a living for my family. Being in the healthcare field is a great opportunity to share my Christian faith as well. I love the opportunity to connect with patients and I am passionate about providing quality dental care. To me, this means taking my time and doing things right the first time. My primary goal is providing the best dentistry possible. The reward is being able to come home from work knowing I helped improve my patient’s quality of life, their oral health, and their self-confidence.
Education and Continuing Education
I attended the Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry graduating with my Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 2009. I graduated from Georgia Southern University in 2003 with a degree in Biology. I am licensed to practice dentistry in both South Carolina and Georgia. Maintaining both dental licenses requires numerous hours of continuing education which keeps me current on the latest techniques and procedures in dentistry. I am a fan of anything that could enhance patient care and am constantly striving to keep my knowledge up-to-date. I am especially interested in learning about techniques that combine proven dental treatments with the cutting edge technology and research.

In the Office
I feel honored to be able to provide quality dental care to the families of North Augusta and our surrounding area. Our office goal is to provide patients with a clear understanding of their dental health. After a thorough exam, we want our patients to have an accurate treatment plan detailing any treatments that we recommend.
Every day, I strive to make patients feel comfortable, relaxed, and appreciated while receiving quality dentistry. I work to connect with my patients on a personal level. A lot of people have high anxiety when it comes to their dental care, my hope is that they will come to enjoy and even look forward to their appointments at my office.
I especially love the challenge of treating patients who have multiple dental problems. I take full advantage of the newest developments in the field of dentistry. I am also very fortunate to have the support of an incredible and experienced team. I have been very impressed with the professionalism of each team member and their genuine desire to do the right thing for our patients. Getting to know our patients and their families and seeing their dental health improve makes the hard work worth every minute.
Outside the Office
I am originally from Stone Mountain, GA but my wife and I fell in love with the Augusta area during our time in dental school at MCG. We love the small town feel of the Augusta area but enjoy all the entertainment, activities, and restaurants the area has to offer! Our family loves the community and we look forward to raising our family here. We have two daughters, Avery (7), Tessa (3), and our dog Alex, is a seven year-old Westie.
I enjoy spending my free time with my family and friends, playing golf, watching sports, hunting, fishing, politics, and staying active with church. Our Christian faith is very important to our family. We believe strongly in supporting our community through volunteering and giving back.
