Richard K. Adams, DDS

Richard Adams and his wife, Karen, have four children and have lived in Las Vegas for over twenty years. He is originally from Cedar City, Utah and grew up participating in sports such as running and playing tennis. He received his undergraduate degree, in Zoology from Brigham Young University. In 1987, he graduated from Creighton University’s School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska. Creighton has a proud tradition of producing well rounded general dentists. However, the biggest advantage of going to Creighton was meeting his wife, who is from Omaha.

The science of dentistry is rapidly changing, so it is vital to go to as many hours of continuing education as possible. Although Dr. Adams still gives his patients the option of going to specialists, because of his many hours of continuing education, most procedures can be done in our office.

In our office, we take the time to do an accurate diagnosis, with digital x-rays, and then, we explain all of the options that are available to you. We will answer your questions and, without pressure, let you decide what you want to have done.

Dr. Adams is a member of the American Dental Association, Nevada Dental Association and the Southern Nevada Dental Association.

He enjoys spending time with his family, volunteering at his church, and reading. Every year, he can be found running several road races with his entire family.
