About Richard Scott Sweeney, DDS

Richard S. Sweeney, DDS


After earning a Bachelor of Science in health sciences from James Madison University, Dr. Sweeney earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2008 from the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry in Chapel Hill. He remained there to complete his residency training in 2009.

The array of technical, artistic, complicated and fun aspects of dentistry compelled Dr. Sweeney to pursue this specialty. He believes in a conservative approach guided by research and experience, and emphasizes patient involvement in all areas of care. He also recognizes that the key to understanding his patients is simply to listen to what they say.

Dr. Sweeney is committed to treating everyone with the God-given dignity and respect they deserve. He practices comprehensive dentistry with a special focus on treating patients who are medically compromised, mentally disabled, behaviorally limited or undergoing cancer treatment. He also has expertise in emergency dental care.

Dr. Sweeney is a Hampton Roads native, born in Portsmouth and raised in Virginia Beach. He loves the ability to experience all four seasons in our area. In his free time, Dr. Sweeney enjoys exercise, vintage video games and most of all, spending time with his wife and three sons.
