— In this time of dramatic change in medical care, it is remarkable that our family has been treated by just one dental firm in Columbia for over 45 years. Equally remarkable is the fact that we enjoyed the services of their gifted dental assistant, Heidi, during that same period.

As a young student at the University of South Carolina in 1968, my wife and I (and later our entire family) were fortunate to become patients of Freedman and Richardson Family Dentistry. Through the years, Carl Freedman and Rhea Richardson became like family, due in large part to their compassionate care and affable dispositions. Dr. Freedman retired several years ago, and Dr. Richardson retired Oct. 28.

As I left the dental office on her last day, it was with a deep sense of gratitude that our family has enjoyed a long-term association with this team of dedicated professionals.
