Richmond Family Dentistry
Dr. Hart is gentle and professional, I knew I was in good hands during the entire procedure. Annie made my experience absolutely exceptional. She explained everything and made me feel very calm and comfortable before and during lunch the process. I would highly recommend this office to anyone seeking safer dental care!
Richmond Family Dentistry
I have never received such a thorough and comprehensive dental appointment. The dental hygienist, Jessy, was very knowledgeable and professional as well as friendly and kind. Dr. Hart utilized multiple assessment tools to determine an appropriate treatment plan. I left the office with several recommendations including supplement support for cavity prevention! My whole family will be receiving her services.

Emphasis on "Family" in the practice name. You feel like family when at the dentist. And Jessie, she's the bomb. Have always loved having my teeth cleaned. But this team makes me love it more. Thanks Betsy S.

Our whole family loves Richmond Family Dentistry! We appreciate the time, care, and consideration the whole staff provides. Our kids actually look forward and get excited about going to the dentist!

"I have found Dr. Hart and her staff to always be welcoming, helpful and professional. Dr. Hart is a compassionate, knowledgeable and skilled dentist. She has performed two crown placements for me with outstanding results. Richmond Family Dentistry offers a broad range of services and I would certainly recommend Dr. Hart and her practice."
"Richmond Family Dentistry is not your typical Dentist's office. The space is welcoming and serene. I would describe the office as more spa-like. The staff is friendly and down-to-earth. They are all very knowledgeable in their fields and will go above and beyond to assist and educate you if you have inquiries or are curious about anything. Dr. Hart is pleasant and has a very uplifting presence. Her smile alone speaks volumes for the service she provides."
"Dr. Hart is not my Family Dentist…but I wish she was! I recently sought out Dr. Hart for removal of amalgam/mercury fillings. In my quest to find the “best” dentist for the work, I found Dr. Hart to be highly recommended by other dentists as well as within my online research. I also realized that not all dentist are created equal, qualified, or up to the challenge of safely removing mercury fillings. Not only is Dr. Hart preeminently qualified and certified by the IAOMT to safely remove mercury fillings, but she combines this with holistic, homeopathic, and cutting edge technologies that result in the absolute best experience and results. In my experience, I also found Dr. Hart to be the most engaging and compassionate dentist. She is a great listener with zeal to provide you the best in dental care. She is a great listener, engaged in your overall supporting health, and forthright in her explanation of required protocols. In the end I had 12 mercury fillings removed by Dr. Hart. Dr. Hart’s professionalism, compassion, and unique approach to dentistry extends to her staff as well. Each contributing to an overall great experience on all fronts. I lacked for nothing and am extremely pleased with the results. In fact, I was so impressed with Dr. Hart and her staff that I may have may have to change dentist and make my wish come true, despite the 1.5 hour drive!"
"I feel very fortunate to be a patient at Richmond Family Dentistry. Dr. Olivia Hart is a very accomplished dentist who always impresses me with not only her professional skills but her caring, friendly nature. Her staff is first rate and they complement her efforts. I would certainly recommend Richmond Family Dentistry to anyone who is looking for personalized, professional dental care."
"I love this office!!! The staff and Dr. are top notch. I always feel well cared for whether I am there for repair or maintenance. They make me feel like I'm being taken care of by a family member."
"They were fast and professional. They were sensitive to my “dentist office anxiety” and helped me through 3 amalgam removals and composite replacements. I am so glad I found this dentist!"
"Richmond Family Dentistry under the new guidance of Dr. Olivia Hart has given me the best dental care I have ever had. The front office staff of Christina and Sandy are very organized and professional and willing to accommodate any schedule. Michelle the hygienist is always a joy to listen to and her cleanings are outstanding. I am also always impressed with assistants Alice and Julia who were always at my side. I found the beautiful Dr. Hart to be the consummate professional, with a vast array of holistic knowledge and skill coupled with the cutting edge in new equipment. My last visit consisted of a crown replacement that instead of a 3 day ordeal, took only 3 hours using the latest mapping techniques and in-house construction. I would highly recommend anyone become a patient of Dr. Hart and look forward to my next visit."
"My family and I were under the care of Dr. Hart and her excellent staff while we lived in RVA. Dr. Hart is knowledgeable, caring, and a gem of a person. Michelle is the only hygienist who ever made me look forward to my six-month appointment. She is friendly and has magical hands. Charlene is careful, calming, and a lovely person. The front office staff is cheerful and good at their jobs. Couldn't ask for better!!!"
"So thankful for a very knowledgeable dentist (and staff) that cares about your total health! New to the Richmond area and needed an amalgam filling removed. This office used the proper protocol, including instructing me to prepare my system for the removal. Have also had a few cavities filled- fast and efficient. Definitely, recommend!"
"Super friendly staff. I did not have to wait but about 5 minutes to fill out paperwork mainly. I had been scared because my previous dentist refused to do cleaning and said I needed gum cleaning. Surprised because they were very conversational and polite, professional gentle touch, even a tv screen above me while I looked up during the cleaning. This place goes above and beyond to restoring my faith in dentists which I sadly have been avoiding for most of my adult life. Thanks for your awesomeness!"

"I will only go to biologic dentists and my first experience with Dr. Hart was an excellent one. She is thorough, pays attention to details and answers questions with sound, fact-based information. I had a filling and crown preparation done and will be going back for the final crown placement. Dr. Hart is the kind of dentist you travel out of your way to go see."
