Dr. Richard Roblee

After graduating from Baylor College of Dentistry (BCOD), Dr. Roblee quickly became renowned for his work in Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry in Dallas, Texas. In order to be able to give his patients the highest level of comprehensive care, he decided to return to BCOD and study graduate orthodontics. He is now recognized around the globe for his work in esthetic dentistry, orthodontic techniques and interdisciplinary therapy.

He has given more than 500 professional presentations in the United States, Canada, Central America, South America, Europe, Australia and Japan on these topics. He is also a leader in several exciting new areas of dentistry including Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Therapy (SOFT) and Airway Centered Growth and Development. He is the author of numerous publications and videos, including a landmark textbook entitled “Interdisciplinary Dentofacial Therapy: A Comprehensive Approach to Optimal Patient Care” (Quintessence Publishing Co., Inc.).

He is an active member in numerous prestigious dental organizations, including the American Academy of Fixed Prosthodontics and the American Academy of Restorative Dentistry.  Dr. Roblee is the current President of the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry, which is limited to the top 100 worldwide leaders in Esthetic Dentistry. He is honored to be only the second orthodontist to ever serve in that role.

Dr. Roblee is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, a distinction that less than 20% of practicing orthodontists actually receive.  He is also an associate clinical professor at Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry in both the restorative department and the orthodontic department. While maintaining a full-time practice in Fayetteville and Springdale, Dr. Roblee continues to be instrumental in the development of Web-based collaborative software to facilitate his comprehensive approach to healthcare. In creating the first interdisciplinary digital network for clinical records through his company in 1997,, Dr. Roblee provides a vehicle for exceptional patient care through the collaborative value of shared images, treatment planning and patient services. In addition to “talking teeth” to anyone who will listen, Dr. Roblee is passionate about growing heirloom tomatoes, cheering on the Razorbacks, traveling and spending time with his family.  He and his wife, Julie, have three adult children, a son-in-law, daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren to whom he is “Pop Pops.” The Roblees are active in numerous community organizations and events.
