Dr. Richard, our dentist in Irvine

Richard A. Harder, Jr.


Dr. Rick Harder is a dentist who has served patients in Irvine since 1986.  He graduated from U.S.C. School of Dentistry in 1979, and continued his education in orthodontics.  He is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), California Dental Association (CDA), and the Orange County Dental Society (OCDS).  His membership in the American Association of Implant Dentistry and the American Association of Dental Sleep Medicine have allowed him to expand his skill set to help patients with sleep apnea, dental implants, or bone grafts.

Dr. Harder has served as Dental Director for both Prudential and CIGNA insurance.  He was certified as a Quality Assurance Consultant by the California Association of Dental Plans.

Dr. Harder believes the best dental care comes from personalized treatment. While the office uses advanced technology to ensure the quality of patient care, he makes sure to keep a family atmosphere in his practice.  He works to put every patient at ease, no matter what their age, and takes the time to explain everything to his patients.  He has held himself to these high standards for over 37 years.  With cosmetic, general, and emergency dental services, he offers a full range of high quality care to everyone he sees.
