Dr. Rich Flores took over practice operations from Dr. Ken Nevar, full-time in January 2018. Dr. Flores was born on the westside and grew up in Westlake. Dr. Flores graduated from Saint Ignatius High School and attended Allegheny College in Meadville, PA, where he received his Bachelor of Science in Biology, graduating cum laude. He then attended dental school at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, graduating in 2013, and immediately upon graduation entered private practice in Columbus, OH.
Dr. Rich is very excited to be home practicing dentistry amongst family and friends. Dr. Rich believes in compassionate, quality dental care provided in a comfortable setting, and firmly adheres to treating patients as if they are family – in both attitude and treatment recommendations. He enjoys dentistry because it’s a perfect mix of art and science, and allows him to interact with people on a personal level.
In his spare time, he loves rooting for his hometown sports teams: Browns, Cavs, Indians, and Buckeyes. Dr. Rich also likes to stay active and participates in rec leagues for basketball, football, softball, and volleyball. Dr. Rich is thrilled to be a part of the Willoughby community and is very much looking forward to meeting you at your next visit.
