Dr Richard LigginsDr Richard Liggins


After completing a degree in Marine Biology in 1979 and travelling the world, Richard graduated with his degree in dentistry in 1987. He is continuing his education in complex aesthetic rehabilitation of people’s mouths, dental implants, and modern endodontic techniques.

Richard loves helping people from all walks of life reach their own potential for a healthy life. He enjoys making this contribution in an authentic, caring way and enjoys the daily challenge of providing a high quality of work. Richard is especially interested in Aesthetic Oral Rehabilitation combined with preventative dentistry, sedation techniques - including hypnosis, appearance dentistry and making the dental experience as enjoyable and non-threatening as it can be.

Outside of the practice Richard loves to spend his time diving, surfing, at the gym, playing with his little boy, and he also dabbles in underwater photography.
