Dr. Richard Gesker believes that each patient deserves the confidence and comfort that comes with a healthy, beautiful smile. Knowing first-hand the deep connections between oral, emotional and physical health, he brings each patient into the decision-making process and gives them autonomy over the care that they receive.  

In 2006, Dr. Gesker started his private practice career at Simply Beautiful Smiles under the direct mentorship of Simply Beautiful Smiles founder Dr. D’Angelo. After three years, he left to explore other opportunities and gain new experiences. He has since come full circle to rejoin the Simply Beautiful Smiles Family, eager to share his knowledge and experience with young doctors and take full advantage of the technologies and support available to Simply Beautiful Smiles providers.
