Practice Information

Western Heights Dental was established by Dr. Richard Myers, III in 1982. Western Heights Dental is very involved within its community and surrounding counties. Our main focus is dental education and prevention for the children and teenagers that walk through our doors. We place an emphasis on treating children in a warm, friendly, and non-threatening environment. We also want children to grow up understanding the importance of taking care of their teeth.

We find it rewarding to be able to shape youngster’s dental health habits from age 1- 20. We are different because we spend the necessary time and energy to make each child’s visit a pleasant experience.
