Dr. James Richey - DMD

“Where is that humming coming from?” Most likely it is Dr. James Richey just singing away as he works. 

Dr. James Richey was born and raised in Central California among the olives, grapes, walnuts and oranges. Trust us, the good ones stick around! He has now lived in Idaho for almost 9 years and calls it home especially after marrying a beautiful Idaho girl. 

Dr. James Richey graduated from Brigham Young University – Idaho with a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology and minor in Dance Pedagogy and received his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry from Roseman University of Health Sciences College of Dental Medicine. He came to love orthodontics from Progressive Orthodontic Seminars Continuing Education courses and enjoys seeing the change that comes to people when they are proud of their smile. 

Dr. James Richey has interests in so many things it’s become a bit of a problem. He enjoys archery, shooting, leather working, reading, writing, music, gaming, and computers just to name a few. He’s always got a project in the works, planning another, and is excited to complete projects he hasn’t even thought of yet. 

He comes from a family of 7 with only one sister!  As the youngest of 5, he developed into being a good observer of people, and learned lessons by watching. He says this helps him detect early course corrections when needed. Dr. James Richey’s upbringing gives him an upper hand in getting along well with people of all ages with all different types of interests and personalities. 

His wife Deanna and 2 children Steven and Adalind are his world and we can definitively state he is most certainly wrapped around their fingers. However; we can’t blame Dr. Richey for falling for his kids’ puppies eyes… They learned it first hand from their real puppy Clancy.
