Dr. Richard Copithorne
Welcome to Accelerated Dental. The philosophy of our practice is to perform the highest quality dentistry, using the best materials, while treating you the patient with dignity and compassion through the process. We strive to be a comprehensive place for all dental needs that welcomes family, because we treat you like family. My vision is to have a longstanding dental practice in the community to allow relationships to develop over time.
I am originally from St. Louis, Missouri. I ventured to Las Vegas for dental school in 2012. Recently, I have fulfilled many of my dreams including getting married and opening a dental practice. In a business sense, I am following in the footsteps of my father. My father owned and operated an auto parts store for more than 30 years as I grew up. Virtually every time we would go out to a restaurant after one of my sports games, or simply for family dinner, someone would come say hello. I think it speaks volumes about the lasting impression he had on everyone he met. In a professional sense I am following in my mother’s footsteps as she worked in healthcare as a registered nurse. My parents are the most generous and kind people I know, and eventually I hope to have a similar presence in the Las Vegas community.
I plan on staying in Las Vegas for a long time. I love taking advantage of what Las Vegas has to offer — camping at Mount Charleston, attending a Las Vegas Knights hockey game, and/or trying the exquisite culinary options available. If you hope to find a permanent place for all your dental needs, I hope you stop in for a visit. And if you ever see me out, please say hello!
