About Richard Gagne, DDS

Biography Richard Gagne DDS. Sedation Dentistry for the scared dental patient.

Richard Armand Gagne, D.D.S. is a native Californian. He attended California State University, Fullerton, and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Southern California School of Dentistry in 1976. From 1976-80 Dr. Gagne was a Dental Officer in the U.S. Navy, two years of which he was a dentist on the aircraft carrier USS Ranger (CV-61). He was directly responsible for the dental care of over 5,000 sailors and officers. This unique opportunity quickly expanded his dentistry skills and training. Dr. Gagne strongly believes in keeping abreast of the latest dental techniques through diligent reading of professional journals and publications. He devotes many days each year to continuing dental education courses given both in California and out-of-state, well above the requirements of California law. He is the consummate professional that stays current on the latest advances in dentistry so that his patients receive the finest of care. His education in Intravenous (sleep dentistry) Sedation is rare among general dentists. Since the Dental Board of California is so stringent, very few dentists have endeavored to seek and complete the training. Dr. Gagne is tireless in the pursuit of dental excellence.
