“Hello, I’m Richard Dest of Dest Family Dentistry. Our company has had the privilege of providing Charlotte and its surrounding counties with quality, gentle and compassionate dental care for over 30 years. We have accomplished this through the caring dedication of our dentists and support staff who realize that our goal is to gain your trust and satisfaction.  It has always been my philosophy to treat people the way that I would want to be treated. That philosophy has evolved into our mission statement, because at Dest Family Dentistry we realize that you are the reason we are here: to meet  your dental needs with the utmost quality and respect in a caring, friendly atmosphere. I invite you to visit one of our locations, each unique in it’s own way but the same in the way you are treated…like family.”
