Dr. Richins is from Wanship, Utah, a small town near Park City. Dr. Richins went to both the University of Utah and Utah State University, but earned his undergraduate degree from Utah State. After graduating, he went on to attend the University of Southern California (USC Trojans!) in Los Angeles, California for dental school. He had a great experience at USC; he made a lot of friends and had great professors during his time there. He loved attending USC Trojan football games and is glad that he chose that school. He always wanted to go into the medical field to be able to help people, and as he shadowed in the different fields of medicine and health, he was drawn to the dental field and enjoys it immensely.
Dr. Richins is a general dentist, but he appreciates all aspects of dentistry including endodontics, extractions, implants, crowns and bridge preparation and cosmetic dentistry. He most enjoys helping patients reach their own personal dental goals, whether that be achieving a perfect smile or simply helping their teeth to function better so they may eat a nice, juicy steak. He loves to see people happy and able to smile again.
Dr. Richins and his wife Candice do not yet have any children, but currently have several pets and animals. In addition to their two dogs: a great dane and a redbone coonhound, they have many horses, cows and chickens. He has many hobbies and interests. He loves the outdoors, being active, and enjoys most sports. Dr. Richins has always wanted to live in Arizona, and especially appreciates that he doesn’t have to deal with snow unless he wants to. Living in Arizona allows him to be close to family both in Utah and Mexico, as well as the family that lives here in the area.
Dr. Richins feels he is easy going and easy to get along with. He tries to stay positive and make the most of any opportunity. As a result, his patients and staff alike trust and love working with him!
