Dr. Richard Gervais was raised in El Paso, Texas and moved to Houston in 1975 to attend dental school at the University of Texas School of Dentistry in Houston. Awarded a very competitive scholarship, Dr. Richard Gervais entered the United States Navy Dental Corps upon his graduation in 1978. He returned to Houston in 1981 to initiate his private practice in dentistry. Since then, he has attended the L.D. Pankey Institute, an elective, advanced-learning institute, taking courses to ensure his knowledge and skills are constantly expanding.

In 2003, Dr. Richard Gervais, with well-known Houston-area dentist Fred Simmons, founded The Comprehensive Dental Group of Houston. The idea behind the practice is to provide high-quality dental care to patients provided by board-certified specialists in one location. We bring the Specialist to you! This provides maximum patient care with minimal patient inconvenience.
