Meet Dr. Richards

John M. Richards, D.D.S., M.S.


Dr. Richards graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Maryland. He then attended the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery for four years, graduating near the top of his class. He then completed a hospital residency at University Hospital and John Hopkins with special emphasis on oral surgery and cleft lip and palate treatment. This training was all in preparation for a three-year orthodontic residency which he completed at the University of Maryland in 1991.

Dr. Richards moved to Ft. Myers with his family and has been practicing orthodontics in Lee County for the past 27 years. He is a past president of the Lee County Dental Society and the Florida Association of Orthodontists where he has maintained constant memberships. Other memberships include the Florida Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and the Florida Cleft Lip and Palate Association.

He has also been an important part of the Lee County Cleft Lip and Palate Team since 1991, this team meets twice per month at Health Park Hospital. This treatment is very rewarding to Dr. Richards who has used this knowledge to treat patients in Central America mission trips.

Dr. Richards lives in Ft. Myers with his wife, Kimberley, and together they have raised 5 children: Whitney, Kelly, Tyler, Krystal, and Olivia. He loves sunny southwest Florida and all it has to offer. He also loves practicing orthodontics and plans to continue making people smile here for a long time.
