When I went into private practice in 1990 after seven years of public health dentistry, I wanted to open a dental practice that would provide not only high-quality dental care, but also provide timely care, because Laredo has a reputation for making patients wait a very long time to receive care. I wanted to open up a place that emphasized customer service and really respected our patients' time, and over the years I've been blessed with a very good staff that has enabled me to achieve that, to reach our goals, and I think we're very well known, and very well respected in Laredo for having not only a high-quality practice, but also a practice that achieves a high level of customer service.
For nearly 40 years, starting in 1982, Dr. Dick B. Davenport provided excellent dental care to Laredo area families and individuals. His commitment and example are why our practice has been named the Best Dentist in the Laredo Morning Times Readers’ Choice Awards seven years in a row (as of 2020) and why we have cared for more than 30,000 patients in our decades of service to our wonderful community.
His final day seeing patients at Davenport Dental Group will be May 26, 2021.
Dr. Davenport is a graduate of Texas A&M University and the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston. He is among the 6 percent of dentists in the United States recognized as a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry. He also is a member of the Spear Faculty Club.
His legacy will continue with the knowledgeable and caring team members at both of our locations.
Dr. Davenport will miss caring for patients, but he remains confident that our patients will continue to receive excellent care at Davenport Dental Group. He sincerely appreciates your friendship and loyalty, and he wishes you and your loved ones continued good health and all the best in the coming years.
Dr. Davenport resides in Laredo with his wife, Isabel. They have two sons: Michael, a physician, and Matthew, who will preserve his father’s legacy right here at Davenport Dental Group.
