“I find my greatest personal and professional happiness when I’m able to help a patient improve their life and take control of the health of their smile.

Beyond the Practice
Born and raised in Winchester, Dr. Richardson resides in Belmont and appreciates living and practicing in the same community. She cares a great deal about the community, its people, and its needs. It is, in fact, one of the major reasons she decided to open her practice in Belmont. When she’s not caring for patients, she pursues culinary pleasures, whether she’s cooking a feast or exploring new restaurants. She also enjoys skiing and golfing, cheering for Boston sports teams, and spending time at East Dennis Cape Cod.
