Hobbies/Interests: The interests I get the most enjoyment from invariable mean being near water or being wet. I love sailing, windsurfing, surfing and can wakeboard and water ski. I love the outdoors and try to play golf. I also enjoy walking, running, cycling time in the hills. I see fish and can be found regularly merrying about the sea.
Star Sign: Virgo
Pets: A Snoodle (poodle x schnauzer) called Lottie
Favourite Film/s: Got to be Top Gun, followed closely by Star Wars
Favourite Book/s: My current list would include ‘The Art of Happiness’ by the Dalai Lama and the ‘Miracle Morning’ by Hal Elrod, but ask me in 6 months and it will probably be something completely different as I enjoy reading non-fiction and spend some time each day with my head in a book.
My role is to bring together a dedicated team of likeminded individuals whose purpose is to care for people and help them enjoy amazing dental health and enjoy ‘teeth for life’. I am responsible for creating an environment where each individual has the potential to attain their very best performance.
More About Practice Owner & Dental Maverick Dr Richard Howarth
I did my training to become a dentist at Manchester University, The Turner Dental Hospital there. The symbol for the dental hospital was actually an elephant and elephants for me are my favourite animal I have to say. We’ve even got big pictures of elephants in one of our offices where the patients come and get some treatment.
So that’s where I started my training. I then went to Australia, I sneaked away for a little bit and worked at Sydney University and then ended up back at Manchester Royal Infirmary where I was a senior house officer working with 9 or 10 different consultants. So I got to see loads and loads of different stuff there, before coming down to Stafford to pursue a career at that stage, in Orthodontics and surgery.
Sort of changed path after about a year of doing that and came out into general practice and I just love the fact that I get so many different things. I cannot be bored, every day is different, every mouth’s different, every treatment’s different and that’s the great thing with general practice and I love it to bits.
Dentist Richard Howarth qualified from Turner Dental Hospital, which is part of the University of Manchester, in 1988.
Richard loves the precise nature of dentistry and the challenge of trying to achieve perfection while his great communication skills and ability to build rapport have given many anxious patients the personal and emotional support that has allowed them to receive dental care. Richard said “we know how to cure tooth and gum disease and it is my aim to help as many people as possible choose dental health for life.” Richard is active both in his community, nationally and internationally promoting dental health.
Richard is married to Jeni. Richard and Jeni have two children Evangeline and Thomas.
