Meet the Doctors

Proudly Serving the Community for Over 30 years

Richard L. Rodgers, DDS

Originally from the St Louis area, Dr. Rodgers’ family moved to Atlanta when he was 10 years old. He grew up attending Shallowford Elementary and Dunwoody High School. At an early age he began thinking of dentistry as a profession. After receiving a good deal of encouragement and completing a couple of science projects concerning teeth, he decided to follow the educational pathway that would lead him to becoming a dentist.

Dr. Rodgers attended Vanderbilt University for his undergraduate studies and finished with a degree in Molecular Biology and Mathematics. He was fortunate to get accepted by Emory University School of Dentistry after only three years at Vanderbilt. Volunteering his time and skills has been an aspect of Dr. Rodgers life for many years, beginning with volunteer work at Vanderbilt Hospital up through 26 years of service with Atlanta’s Ben Massell Dental Clinic. Since 2005 he has worked as a volunteer dentist for the humanitarian organization ServeHaiti to improve the lives of the people in Gran Bois, Haiti.

In his spare time, Dr. Rodgers enjoys acting in amateur theatrical productions. Although he has not been able to be involved in as many as he would like, he still keeps an eye out for an opportunity to meet new friends and entertain people.
