Dr. Richard Wolfert
Dr. Wolfert is proud of the community practice he has built in Weymouth since 1991. During this time Rick has earned a reputation for not only being a clinically exceptional dentist, but also one whom his patients trust and feel comfortable with.
“I make it my top priority to spend the proper time and give the right attention to developing a custom treatment plan that fits the exact needs of each one of my patients,” says Dr. Wolfert. “That time and effort spent at the beginning, along with not compromising on any part of our treatment, pays off in the final results.”
Rick graduated from Tufts School of Dental Medicine in 1981 after receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of Vermont. During his tour on the Aircraft Carrier Midway (CV-41), he was deemed the “Toothboss”, a nickname that has followed him since he left active service. Currently he serves in the Massachusetts Army National Guard where he was deployed to Iraq in 2004 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom as a dentist and the units Triage Officer. He retired from military service in February 2015 with MORE THAN 33 years of service.
In 1988, Rick began his private practice career in Milton. He then worked in Norwell before coming to Weymouth in 1991. He is a fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry and has published in the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry.
In his off time, Rick enjoys spending time with his two daughters: Bethany Lee and Jessica.
Bethany Lee is 26 years old and in a graduate program at Regis College in Weston, Massachusetts. Upon completion, she will receive a degree that will enable her to practice as a Nurse Practitioner. She lives in Milton, Massachusetts with her roommate Jessica Keefe and her six-month-old Siberian Husky puppy Tucker.
Jessica is 23 years old and works as an analyst for a well known marketing company called 360i. She lives in New York’s East Village and is thoroughly enjoying the City and all it’s attributes. She is very busy with her job but still finds time to get together and maintain a close relationship with her Villanova friends.
In his leisure time, Rick enjoys watching Boston sports with his family and getting a workout in at the local gym, unless of course, he’s involved in another project in the ongoing remodeling of his house. His most recent projects involves remodeling his “hobby shop” and preparing it for the next older model motorcycle he plans to recondition.

Our patients appreciate the ambiance Debby has created and Dr. Wolfert receives many positive comments about just that!
