Dr. Richard Williams


Dr. Richard Williams, DDS, MS

"It's a true privilege to be given your trust and to treat something as personal as your smile.”- Richard Williams, DDS, MS.

Dr. Williams was born in Jackson, TN, and grew up in Savannah, TN. From a young age, Dr. Williams was inspired by his family dentist and orthodontist.

After experiencing his own smile transformation, he developed a passion for helping others do the same. Being able to help others increase their self-confidence while building lasting relationships is an honor he cherishes. 

In September of 1985, Dr. Williams opened his practice to give patients in the DeSoto County area healthy, beautiful smiles. For more than 30 years, Dr. Williams has provided high-quality orthodontic care to patients of all ages.

Dr. Williams and his family live in Nesbit and have built many meaningful relationships throughout their time together.

Dr. Nathan R. Hamman, DDS, MDS

"My goal is not only to provide you with the highest quality of orthodontic treatment but to also have a positive impact on your life during your time with us." - Nathan R. Hamman, DDS, MDS.

Nathan R. Hamman, DDS, MDS, is a remarkable orthodontist who genuinely cherishes the opportunity to connect with his patients during such a significant and transformative period in their lives. Dr. Hamman derives immense joy from witnessing children blossom into confident young adults, all while sporting radiant and healthy smiles.

Unlike other medical procedures that may be relatively brief, orthodontic transformations require time, allowing him to cultivate genuine relationships with each patient. This affords Dr. Hamman the chance to delve into their fascinating personalities, discovering what makes them truly unique individuals.

Dr. Hamman loves watching his patients’ self-confidence grow, along with how they feel about the world. They walk taller and straighter, they’re more inclined to initiate a conversation, and they smile faster and easier, all because they feel better about their appearance. Dr. Nathan believes it’s humbling to be a part of making that happen.
