Dr. Richard Sedwick

A Passion for Endodontics


Richard Sedwick

Dr. Richard Sedwick grew up in the heart of Virginia’s beautiful Shenandoah Valley. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Sciences at Brigham Young University before returning to his home state. Dr. Sedwick completed his dental training at Virginia Commonwealth University, where he received his degree in 2011.

While practicing as a general dentist for 5 years in both Richmond and Staunton, Virginia, Dr. Sedwick developed a passion for endodontics. He found helping patients eliminate pain while saving their teeth incredibly rewarding. As such, Dr. Sedwick chose to return to VCU and complete his residency in Advanced Education in Endodontics, where he served as the chief resident during his second year.

Recently, Dr. Sedwick returned from Guatemala, where he perfected his apical surgery techniques. Dr. Sedwick has also participated in Missions of Mercy projects in southwestern Virginia, providing endodontic services to those who would otherwise not be able to save their natural dentition.

Dr. Sedwick won an AAE/DENTSPLY resident award at the 2018 American Association of Endodontists meeting for his research on Outcomes of Revascularization Therapy at VCU.

Dr. Sedwick is excited to continue calling the Richmond area home. When not treating patients, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Heather, and their three beautiful children. They enjoy hiking, swimming, and going to the movies; and, if Dr. Sedwick has some alone time, he enjoys reading a good book.
