I had been to the dentist and one of my wires from my permanent retainers popped off and the dentist fixed it. However, it was really tight. I was worried it was going to shift all my front teeth. I stopped at Dr. Richards office he got me right in removed the bonding to release the pressure on my front teeth. He rebounded the wire in the correct position. I was so grateful to have Dr. Richards and his team available to help me when I needed help years after I had my braces off. Thank you all !!

Friendly, courteous staff. They informed me of delays. The staff is great with children. Dr. Richards is knowledgeable and not pushy, he was open to letting my daughter choose her treatment.

Dr. Richards and his team are amazing! After my oldest son finished his braces, I was inspired to get braces at 51 years of age. Now my husband and son are in treatment as well. I completely trust Dr. Richards due to his consciousness and professionalism.

I came to Dr Richards to get a second opinion about treatments for my son’s impacted canines. He spent so much time with us—connecting with my son and me, hearing our concerns, and answering our questions in such a calm, patient, helpful way. He is fantastic. His advice was great, and I’m definitely planning to ditch my current ortho to come to Dr Richards for my son and younger child.

Dr. Richards is great! He did my braces 15 years ago and my smile has help all these years, and when I had a bonded retainer break recently, they helped me out quickly and effectively. He treated my whole family with similarly effective results. Would highly recommend!!

This was a fabulous dental experience with Dr.Michael Richards and a dental assistant Kayla. The procedure went well and I was so relaxed because of the huge windows and snowy mountains and fun music distracting me from their treatment. Dr. Richards was very engaging in conversation to get to know me and my concerns and professional as he did more work on my permanent retainer. I would highly recommend this office for its friendliness and easy access from covered parking garage. I was able to get in earlier because they also have a cancellation list that one can be put on. That was a wonderful perk! The front desk receptionist was darling as was the office very cheerful and clean!

Dr. Richards is hands down the best orthodontist in the SLC area. There are a lot of practices and doctors to choose from around here. People with lower fees people with higher fees people with huge practices people with smaller practices. If you are searching for the best quality of care, the best value, and a doctor that truly cares about getting you the best results in an efficient amount of time, Dr. Richards is your guy. They are not the cheapest, they are not the most expensive… but I do believe they provide the best value and standard of care. You get what you pay for. Whether you are looking for your child or for yourself as an adult, I would encourage anyone to call this office.

Dr. Richards' attention to detail and commitment to achieving alignment perfection truly shines through in his work. His remarkable ability to notice the smallest details and his precision in orthodontic work truly sets him apart. His keen eye ensures that every aspect of treatment is handled with the utmost care and accuracy. Dr Richards' immaculately clean practice and friendly, helpful demeanor, as well as his amazing staff, make the orthodontic experience not just effective but also comfortable and welcoming. My son just got his braces off and we have had the best experience at Dr Richards Orthodontics. His teeth look incredible and I will only ever trust Dr Richards with my other children who will need orthodontic care in the future.-Emily Leger (somehow my mom's name is showing on the review). 🥰

UPDATE: After I got my braces off my permanent retainer broke and one of my teeth shifted. The staff here were able to get me in very quickly for an appointment. Dr. Richards recommended Invisalign to fix the issue. I just finished my treatment and I’m so happy with how my teeth turned out! The Invisalign process was super fast and all the staff were so helpful during the process. I definitely recommend coming here.

A shout-out to Michael Richards Orthodontics for expert care and exceptional support from the entire team. I felt well-supported during my entire treatment period (even in those times of non-compliance), was especially grateful for the at-home digital scan options. The entire team are experts in their field, well-versed in the latest technologies that improve orthodontic treatment. More important, they truly care about their patients. Thanks for the encouragement, the fun, and the smiles! I'll miss seeing you.

As a 60-year-old patient, I am beyond thrilled with the outstanding results I achieved through Invisalign treatment with Dr. Michael Richards and his exceptional office staff and assistants. The process took one year, and I wish I had done this decades ago. Dr. Richards and his team provided me with exceptional care, expertise, and guidance throughout the entire process. They took the time to thoroughly explain the treatment plan and address any concerns I had, making me feel comfortable and at ease. The office staff and assistants were friendly, helpful, and accommodating, creating a warm and welcoming environment that made every visit a pleasure. I am now enjoying a beautiful, straight smile that has transformed my confidence and self-esteem. I highly recommend Dr. Richards and his team to anyone considering Invisalign or other orthodontic treatment, regardless of age. It's never too late to achieve the smile you've always wanted!

In my totally unbiased opinion, Michael Richards orthodontics is awesome. The people here are great, and Michael Richards is a fantastic orthodontist. I have always been afraid of braces, and even though one of my teeth was almost at a 90 degree angle compared to the ones next to it, I was completely uninterested in braces. The tooth was totally straightened within a few months, and my braces haven’t hurt much at all.Great experience so far!!

I am a dentist in Salt Lake City, and I have been referring patients to Dr. Richards for nearly 20 years. I have great respect for Dr. Richards' clinical skills and for the way that he and his staff treat my patients. My patients always return from Dr. Richards' office very happy with the care they've received.I've been so pleased with Dr. Richards' care of my patients that when my own children needed orthodontic treatment, I sent them to Dr. Richards. He and his staff treated my three kids great, and my kids now have confidence when they smile.

The moment you step into Dr. Richard's office, you are greeted with a warm welcome & a smile! Riley is tops when it comes to remembering who you are<3 I love the laid back vibe of the staff. Add their knowledge & expertise --- it's a total win! Dr. Richards is gentle & mindful. I never felt rushed & felt that I could share my concerns easily. He always gave me an explanation or an action that put my mind at ease. They are kind humans who care --- a lot! This is how a dental office should operate <3

They all did a great job helping me get my smile back with aligners. They remembered my name, and we're all very professional. I do feel that they could work on being more understanding and accommodating of sensory issues when discussing plans for retainers after aligners, I chose aligners specifically to accommodate the level of sensory intrusion I experience and felt pressured to chose a permanent retainer instead of removable one that better suits my needs.

15:56 16 Dec 22
Out of any Dr. I’ve been to, dentists & specialists included, they have to be my favorite. Not only was I here for about 2 years while I had my braces on. But I’ve been back a few times since having my braces off too. Everyone on staff is really friendly and helpful, including Dr. Richards he’s great too. If you’re looking to get braces and are reading this review, I suggest to give them a call. You won’t regret it!All in all, very glad I got my braces with them.
22:42 12 Dec 22
Dr. Richards helped me navigate a double jaw surgery 10 years ago. For such a massive surgery I was amazed how I only had to have braces for 1 year total. He worked seamlessly with the surgeon to make sure everything would align post surgery. I have had no issues at all since, and would recommend this office to anyone and everyone. 5 stars for not only Dr. Richards, but his amazing staff as well. They are very friendly and knowledgeable from beginning to end.

Dr. Richards and his staff are so great. I started going here when I was 7 years old and I always looked forward to visits because the staff was so kind. Recently I had an issue with my retainer and they got me scheduled for an appointment within the next few days.

Dr. Richards is very precise and made sure that my teeth were exactly how I wanted them. I am so happy with the results and my new smile. He made my experience as an adult getting braces a great one. I will definitely use him for my kids braces down the road.

Such a wonderful team at Michael Richards Orthodontics! I was always kept in the loop on every aspect of the treatment.

After I had surgery they were so considerate at my appointments to be careful while making adjustments and give me any needed breaks.Dr. Richards is wonderful and extremely skilled. You can be sure that your orthodontic treatment is in great hands.The staff is amazing!

I've had plenty of bad experiences with dentists, one including a doc not changing his gloves after working on a patient with cavities and putting his smelly hands straight into my mouth... anyways, so I was nervous about trusting the wrong doctor, especially for an orthodontic treatment. I've been a patient of Dr. Richards for about a year now and I'm beyond satisfied with him. He knows his craft and cares about what he does. He truly is the best orthodondist you can find in northern Utah. I'm glad I did my research and found his clinic.

We love Dr. Richards and staff! My husband and I both got braces in late 2020 and we both recently got them off. I’ve known my husband since we were little kids and in the 20+ years I’ve known him, I’ve seen him smile with his teeth maybe 10 times. Just this last week since he’s gotten his braces off, I’ve seen him smiling constantly! He is beaming! We both have so much more confidence. We are very pleased with the entire staff. We are only sad we won’t see them often anymore.

20:41 23 Jun 22
It’s amazing. I’ve seen so many differences from when I first started 4 years ago, to now and we haven’t done much. I started with an expander and that got my teeth so much straighter just from that. I’m starting my Invisalign retainers right now, and I already see a difference. Best ortho I’ve been too!!

I have 4 kids that have had braces and Dr. Richards is by far the best orthodontist I have ever been to. I took my youngest son to Dr. Richards after his other orthodontist finished his treatment and said he would always have crooked teeth. Dr. Richards told us he could fix his teeth and he did. He did Invisalign and we are super happy with the results.

I've had an outstanding experience with the team at Michael Richards Orthodontics. I'm an (older) adult and needed to have my bite realigned after using a number of OTC dental appliances for sleep apnea that caused misalignment. Dr. Richards designed a great plan and put me in aligners, and in just 8 months, I am free and can eat normally again. Plus--my teeth are as straight as any kid's just out of braces, and I'm so happy with my new smile. This is a well-run practice with friendly staff, and they are efficient and timely getting you in and out. Dr. Richards is so kind, gentle and compassionate. I'll be bringing my grandson in soon. Thank you for taking such good care of me.

I went back to Michael Richards Orthodontics after about 10 years since I got my braces off not knowing that the permanent retainer came unglued, who knows how long. After Dr. Richards looked at what had happened we came to the conclusion that having braces again was the best option. I had the new braces for about 6 months and with the help from Dr. Richards and his team got my smile back to where it was before. He's amazing at his work and very understanding.. even when I was being difficult. I've been a patient since I was about 8 years old and will always go back when I need to or take my children in for braces when the time comes. Thank you for all your hard work and patience!

At 37 years old, I am now able to smile with confidence. All of my expectations were exceeded and I'm so incredibly happy with my results. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Richards and his staff. Dr Richards listened to every concern I had, and there were many, as I am very picky. I love all of the girls in his office and really looked forward to seeing them every visit. I had issues with getting brackets to stay on my crowns and every time I called I was met with such kindness and was fit in to their busy schedule. My son will be in braces soon and I cannot wait to be back in this office.

21:42 21 Oct 21
Can not say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Richards and his staff. He was my ortho when I got braces when I was 13. I am now 31 and still just as pleased as the day I got my braces off with how good my teeth look. Recently my permanent retainer broke so I went back to Dr. Richards to get it fixed. Not only did he fix it, but he took the time to address a slight gap that had developed (due to the perm. retainer breaking) between my two front teeth. He was able to fix that as well and I could not be more happy. His staff is extremely friendly and I enjoyed my whole overall experience. I not only would recommend him to others, but would only consider him for any other orthodontic needs in my future!

From my first visit, I felt like Dr. Richards and his staff really listened to me and involved me in the treatment process to make sure I got the results I wanted. Dr. Richards is super friendly and great at what he does. I also love his assistants — they feel like friends at this point!I did traditional braces with ceramic brackets on top and metal brackets on the bottom. I like how inconspicuous the ceramic brackets were. Also, both the Riverton and Salt Lake offices are great, clean facilities.I'm super happy with my smile, which I've been self-conscious about for years! I'd definitely recommend Michael Richards Orthodontics.

My long orthodontia journey was awesome thanks to Dr. Richards and the amazing staff! Everything from expanders, bands, tooth surgery, and Invisalign were made a lot easier thanks to all their help! I’m very excited about my finished teeth result! Thank you! :))

I had a great experience with Michael Richards Orthodontics. I went to them for Invisalign for myself after thinking about doing it for years. I am thrilled with the results, and should have done it sooner. They are caring, thorough, professional and do a great job. Thank you Dr. Richards!

This office and team are all wonderful! My child’s case was a tricky one and Dr. Richards handled it all to perfection. He was careful, thoughtful, and honest with the treatment every step of the way. My child’s smile is amazing and we are thrilled!

Dr. Richards is one of the most compassionate and skilled professionals I've met and he did a super job with my two sons' orthodontic treatments (which were both unbelievably complex). When appropriate, he gave us choices in treatments, and always clearly explained options to us. His office is comfortable and well run, and his staff is friendly and professional. I've sent so many of our friends to him already and will continue to do so. He's the best.

Very kind staff, and a doctor that actually asks you questions on how you want your teeth to look and asks your opinion plus offers options on treatment rather than just pulling the “orthodontist card” and saying he knows what’s best. I’ve had a few orthodontists because I have moved during treatment and I appreciate the difference that Dr. Richards makes in my care.

Dr. Michael Richards Orthodontics is amazing!!!! He has done braces for all 6 of my children. He pays close attention to detailed work. We have had various phases of braces with all of them. Some of my children have permanent teeth that are missing. He had a plan and options that made sense, and created fabulous results.His staff are so caring and compassionate. Just this last summer one of my daughters had a pretty intensive office visit. He made sure to personally follow up in the coming week multiple times to make sure she was comfortable.My oldest daughter still to this day said that he gave her the best Christmas present ever. It was just days before the holiday and he decided he wanted to surprise her and take off her braces 2 days before Christmas instead of waiting until January. He is the best.We are almost done with all the kids. Maybe it is time for Dad and Mom to complete round 2 of braces :)I would highly recommend his services. He is competent, precise, kind and in all the work he does he creates beautiful smiles!!

I had a great experience with Dr. Richards and all his staff! They always made my visits as comfortable as they could and they payed a lot of attention to detail. My teeth were pretty crazy when I started, but they made great decisions and were able to make my teeth great by the end! Thankyou!!

I recently got my braces off and I love my smile! Not only did my smile turn out good but it took a little over a year to do which is extremely fast! The staff is always so caring and kind! Me and my sisters have always enjoyed Michael Richards work!

Michael Richards and team are fantastic and do fantastic work! I was interested in aligners due to a couple canine teeth rotating a bit over the years, and a bite that wasn’t right anymore. I felt confident they knew exactly what to do, so I proceeded. Good communication during checkups along the way and months later I have a perfect smile again, with a bite that aligns perfectly. Picked up whitening bleach on the way out, too, so now my smile can shine. I’m grateful & appreciative of Dr. Richards and team. I’ll happily recommend everyone I know. 🙂
01:51 27 Jun 21
Dr Richards was so accommodating to my son’s fears and anxieties about having braces. He did everything in his power to make it a positive experience and allowed my son to make decisions when possible. It ended up being a great experience and his teeth look amazing. Now my son has confidence that he can do things that he thought were difficult. I’d recommend Dr Richard’s to anyone who has a child who is anxious about braces.

Even 3 years after having my braces removed, it's as if I was last there a month ago. Dr. Richards recalls my care, details about family and friends. During my treatment he was very sensitive to my concerns as an adult professional and did his best to make me comfortable. I will always be so grateful for his sensitivity to those concerns. My daughter was also a patient and he is as caring towards her. I definitely recommend Dr. Richards for patients of all ages. The clinic flow is efficient, easy access to the office in Sugar House, and the staff is friendly. You'll be in very competent hands under his care.

I LOVED my experience with Dr. Richards and all of his staff! My biggest insecurity has always been my teeth. Dr. Richards completely restored my confidence! My teeth look so good and I love my smile now! He always took the time to listen to my concerns and made sure I was happy with the results. Every single person in his office have been so kind and knowledgable. I will be taking my son here when he is ready for braces!

I have been seeing Dr. Michael Richards for over 13 years! I first got my braces on and off with him as a teen and after moving around the country after that and seeing other orthodontists I was always disappointed. When I moved back to Utah I went back to Dr. Richards and he has helped my smile stay perfect for years and years! I always love seeing him and his awesome team because they are careful, thorough and gentle in their craft. Can't say enough great things about Dr. Richards!!!

I went to Dr. Richards for braces 20 years ago, and my teeth are still straight and looking beautiful! I’m so glad I made the decision to get braces, it really helped with my self esteem at the time. I recently had to visit Dr. Richards in the Riverton office again to get new retainer trays, and the office staff were still very helpful and friendly.

After a two and a half year journey, our daughter got her braces off today! Her smile is amazing! This journey required a tremendous amount of gentle patience and sincere care from Michael Richards and his staff. We appreciate their attention to every detail. Andrea was especially attentive to our daughter’s needs today, as well as the many others on the staff that have helped her. These are true professionals that you can trust with your care

After five years of experience with Dr. Richards, I can tell you he is not just the most skilled, thorough, and professional orthodontist in the world--he also has the absolute best staff. Three of my kids have had orthodontic treatment with Michael Richards Orthodontics and we will definitely stay with him for the last two. He and his staff are wonderful, kind human beings who have gone the extra mile so many times to help my kids enjoy their orthodontic experience. They take the time to know and love every patient. My kids look forward to their visits and consider Dr. Richards and his staff trusted friends. They have been amazing at working with my special needs child to help him feel comfortable and in control. Braces has been a positive growing experience for each of my kids, helping them embrace responsibility for their own health. I have seen such personal growth in my oldest son, who just completed his treatment, and I know that the loving, positive relationships that Dr. Richards' office prioritizes have been a key factor in making orthodontia such a positive, empowering experience for him. I highly, highly recommend Michael Richards Orthodontics!

Dr Richards and his staff are so friendly! We have two kids, and my husband in braces now. They were great at getting a plan; the kids started with expanders, and everything has stayed on track. It has been convenient on apts having the kids at the same time, so he can take them all. I can’t wait to see their nice smiles when they get them off soon!

This is my 3rd round of braces. Going into “adult braces” I did my research on what orthodontist would be best. Michael Richards had the best staff and the best plan for what I needed. He definitely takes his time to make sure you are completely happy with your treatment plan and your end results. My smile is so much more perfect than I even imagined it would have been! If you ever ask me who you should go to I will always say Michael Richards! Best experience ever! Thank you for my beautiful smile!

He is a great listener, and has always taken the time to answer my many questions and to make my children feel comfortable. Can't recommend this practice enough!

I’ve worked the front office of Michael Richards Orthodontics for the last 3 months and have never felt more like a part of a work family. This really is my home away from home. Every single team member is kind and genuinely cares about their patient’s well-being and the outcome of their perfect smile. AND EACH OTHER ♥️It’s so fun to see the team engage with their patients and families. They take the time to get to know everyone, and follow up with previous conversations. Each parent gets a personal update from the clinical assistant when they come in with their children. Patients get rewarded for taking care of their smiles and get to redeem their Smile Miles for prizes. We do unique, annual patient appreciation parties. We also love to celebrate milestones for both patients and team members. If you’re looking for an incredible office to build a work family or to improve your smile, you’ve found it.

There aren't enough great things I can about Dr. Richards. All three of my kids have been patients of Dr. Richards over the past 10 years. He is innovative, kind and a perfectionist. Isn't that exactly what you want in an orthodontist? My kids smiles are perfect. My daughter has had some unique challenges and he's been able to not only correct those challenges but also has helped in avoiding future surgery. Don't think twice about choosing him as your orthodontist. Thank you Dr. Richards and your amazing staff.

I could not ask for treatment from a better team! Dr. Richards is friendly, personable, and extremely knowledgeable in his field. This is my second time in braces. My first orthodontist (not named) did not catch that my jaw was misaligned. The misalignment has cause my jaw to pop and hurt especially when eating. Dr. Richards and his team have helped me though all the hoops and struggles for my personalised treatment. He is trusted by my entire family as he has done treatment for my mom, and some of my younger siblings. I am so glad that our family found him. I can not thank them enough!

They have a fun playroom that occupies my 3-year-old while we're here. And even a few TVs hooked up to video game consoles for the older kids to play while they wait. We've enjoyed our experience so much we plan to bring the next kiddo in line here for his braces, too!
