Richard Novick, DDS


Dr. Novick’s favorite part of Orthodontics is being able to positively affect people’s lives. He says, “We often don’t realize how important one’s smile is. It’s one of the first characteristics that people notice about each other. Smiling helps us reflect positivity onto others and ultimately makes us happier!” Dr. Novick feels that building a foundation of trust by treating his patients as special individuals is vital. He understands how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how he can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience.

Dr. Novick has had a lengthy and specialized education in dentistry and orthodontics. He attended the University of Texas at El Paso for undergraduate studies and continued his professional education in Houston, earning a doctorate in Dentistry in 1974. After seven years in the practice of general dentistry in El Paso, Dr. Novick returned to Houston for two years of post-doctoral training at the University of Texas Dental Branch, where he was awarded a Certificate of Orthodontics in 1983.

His education does not stop there. Dr. Novick is a firm believer in the benefits of continuing education for both himself and his staff, and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. He is licensed to practice orthodontics in Texas, New Mexico, California and Nevada.

Bobby Soleiman, D.D.S.


With over ten years of practice in Periodontics, Dr. Bobby Soleiman takes great pride in his work as a dental specialist. He consistently strives for perfection and never compromises on the care taken and delivered to his patients. Because each patient has individual needs, he makes sure to provide tailor-made solutions and education. Dr. Soleiman also complements his treatments with multiple forms of sedation – such as Oral, Nitrous Oxide, and IV Sedation – to make his patients’ visits as painless and comfortable as possible.

Dr. Soleiman received his D.D.S. degree from the University of the Pacific Dugoni School of Dentistry. He went on to focus his skill set on his chosen specialty through the Advanced Education in Periodontics and Implant Dentistry program at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. During his studies, his academic work garnered him induction into the Tau Kappa Omega and Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Societies. He was also selected as the recipient of the American Academy of Periodontology Award for Outstanding Achievement in Periodontists.

Currently, Dr. Soleiman remains active with his peers through his membership to professional organizations such as the California Periodontal Society and the American Dental Association. Outside of his practice, he enjoys basketball, working out, watching movies, and camping with his family. He and his wife have three children.
