About Our Dental Office - Livermore, CA

Smiles by Design, Family by Choice

Our Philosophy: Community

You Are Family

“We are people-oriented – not just another business doing dentistry.” Dr. Richard Howes

From your very first visit, we want you to feel like part of the family we have built here at Smiles by Design. Our new patient exams are very thorough, and we take the time to have a discussion with you, making sure we understand your dental concerns and goals, and you have your questions answered.

Comprehensive Care

Being referred out to a specialist for treatment can be an uncomfortable experience. We are excited to offer comprehensive care right here in our office, without the need for a referral. You can feel comfortable with a dentist and team you already know, and enjoy the convenience of a comprehensive practice.
