Meet Your Richmond Dentist
Dr. Hendrick Tafo-Tabue, DDS
Our office is owned and operated by Dr. Hendrick Tafo Tabue, DDS. A dental graduate from the University of Abidjan School of Dentistry in the Ivory Coast in 2003, he also studied advanced orthodontics in Lille, France before moving to the United States. Once in the US, he completed his general practice residency at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio.
Dr. Tabue’s life-long passion for dental care began as a child. At a young age, he fell victim to excruciating mouth pain caused by a tooth infection. After receiving treatment from his local dentist he was relieved of the pain, but the memory of the experience stayed with him into adulthood. He knows from a first-hand perspective how scary it can be to visit a dental professional, but also knows how wonderful you can feel after having your teeth cared for by an expert. This understanding drives our entire staff to work extra hard to our patients as comfortable during their treatments. Dr. Tabue always welcomes your feedback, personal requests, and questions during your appointment.
In his personal time, the Dr. enjoys furthering his education in the dental field and spending time with his wife and twin daughters.
Dr. Tabue takes personal ownership of each of his patients’ oral and dental condition and makes sure to address his patients’ chief complaint. When the thorough assessment of a patients’ oral condition leads to an indisputable diagnosis, multiple options of treatment might be available. Dr. Tabue will present his patients with the available treatment options and will ONLY recommend options that are NECESSARY. We utilize up-to-date dental technology and all patients receive the highest standards of care.

Orthodontic treatment is perfect for people who have overlapping or crooked teeth, and individuals with severe over and under bites. Surprisingly, orthodontic treatments do more than just improve the appearance of your smile, they can also reduce the likelihood of cavities and gum disease.
What Our Patients Are Saying About Us
The dentist and all the staff that work there are really great. The dentist takes the time to explain everything and give you options. I have never felt pressured or hurried. I had the worst toothache ever and when I called and told them they got me in that morning this was after I had seen the dentist a few times for routine care so it wasn’t just to get another customer. They really care. They have worked with my insurance company and always get me a good estimate of the benefits and what I have to pay out of pocket. This office is diverse just like the community. my wife and I feel welcome here and we trust them.
I can say that my experience with Dr Tafo- Tabue and the staff has been very pleasant for about 2 years. The professionalism is spot on. Our experience with with appointments has been in a fashion that works with us where we can walk right in and begin our scheduled appointment right away.

Very friendly people. Very happy with the work and care of Dr. Tabue.
When Dr. Tafo-Tabue said he wasn’t putting me to sleep for my wisdom teeth I was terrified, but he assured me that I was in good hands. All in all, he was amazing, Joselyn was a pleasure as well. This is definitely a place I will forever recommend to friends and family. The staff is incredible, facilities are clean, and although this isn’t my primary dentist, I felt at home here. Thank you again, Dr. Tafo-Tabue!!
Dr. Malik is thorough and caring. She checked in many times to make sure of my comfort, gave ideas for teeth care (without judgement!)…just as you would expect at the dentist’s office. This was my second visit here and hope to stay with Dr. Malik for years to come!
