Meet Dr. Richard H. Lazor DDS

A native of San Antonio, Dr. Richard Lazor had looked at the medical field for a career. He knew he didn’t want to be an MD after seeing the impact that profession had on his friends’ lives. Majoring in chemistry at the University of Texas at Austin, he decided it was not a lifelong profession that he wanted to pursue. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from UT, Dr. Lazor was drawn to dentistry. He knew that many consider dentistry an alternative to medicine, but that’s not what drew him to the field. His father and brother both had a strong interest in the field, but neither pursued it, so he decided to give dentistry a try. It turned out to be a good choice! Dr. Lazor has always been handy, and he likes to build things with his hands. Dentistry is a hands-on skill, so it’s a good fit for his talents.

Building a Better Smile

Dr. Lazor enjoys the reconstructive aspect of dental care. Repairing damaged and decaying teeth, and restoring health to each patient’s mouth, is very gratifying. He’s happy knowing his efforts help improve their overall health as well. Building their mouth back, so they’re not afraid to smile anymore is priceless. EXPLORE OUR SERVICES »

He has also been chosen as a member of the esteemed Seattle Study Club, one of the most advanced and exciting dental continuing education groups today. He also loves to educate the patients. Dr. Lazor was a clinical professor at UT Dental School in North Central San Antonio and enjoyed educating future dentists many that he is still associated with today.
