Dr. Joe Richardson

Dr. Joe Richardson opened this Family Dentistry office in August of 1981 when he fulfilled his dream of returning to his hometown to live and practice dentistry.  Hunting, fishing, family, community and dentistry have occupied his three decades of promoting good dental health and raising two daughters, now grown and introducing him to granddaughters!

Dr. Shan C. Wilson

Dr. Shan C. Wilson joined our dental team in June of this year.  He graduated from the University of MO School of Dentistry in Kansas City.  He and wife Kaleena, a Houston chiropractor, live in Summersville where they take advantage of the local outdoor beauty by floating the Jacks Fork and bow hunting!

Mandy D. Gale, Office Manager

Mandy D. Gale, office manager, is a multi-tasking master!  She is our voice: answering phones, greeting, billing, receiving, scheduling, reminding, AND navigating insurance claims, she keeps us moving in the right direction.  Mandy has been leading our team since 1999.  She and her husband Tommy are raising two sons in Success.

Twylia Walker, C.D.A., R.D.H

Twylia Walker, C.D.A, R.D.H, received her dental hygiene degree from OTC in Springfield.  Hartville graduate, Cabool resident and Houston dental care provider, Twylia keeps local highways hot with commuting between her fight with plaque and the farming she does with family and husband Chad.  Occasionally, she will head out of Texas County, with horse Harvey in tow, to compete in a barrel racing event - something she has enjoyed for many years!

Jamie St. John, C.D.A w/Expanded Functions

Jamie St. John,C.D.A. with expanded functions, began working at Richardson Family Dentistry as a high school senior. She always had an interest in healthcare and considered being an emergency technician.  Next year, she will have been taking care of dental emergencies at Family Dentistry for over a decade!  Jamie has a soft spot for four-legged, furry critters, and she shares her home with 6 dogs, 3 cats and one favorite husband, Jeremy.

Kelsey Haney, Dental Assistant

Kelsey Haney, dental assistant and student, is juggling classes and work.  A 2010 Houston High School graduate, she is attending classes for dental hygiene and assisting Dr. Wilson on her days in the office.  On days, she isn't working or studying, Kelsey might be cheering on boyfriend Brandon at a Derby race or spending time with her nieces and nephews.

Tasha Reed, Dental Assistant

Tasha Reed, dental assistant, works chair side and upfront talking with patients.  Graduating from Mansfield High School, Tasha took OTC classes for her basics and expanded functions- restorative and prosthetic dental assisting.  During her on-the-job training in Licking, she met husband Travis.  They live there now, with lovely, little Lilly, born in March of this year.

Courtney Decker, R.D.H.

Courtney Decker, R.D.H., received her dental hygiene degree from Missouri Southern at Rolla.  Several days each week, Courtney drives from Salem to prevent dental decay in Houston.  In Salem, her hometown, Courtney might be spied on a bicycle pulling 2-year-old daughter Paisleigh, or she might be on a motorcycle with husband Jake!

Kathy L. Richardson

Kathy Richardson, office coordinator, bookkeeper and flower planter, has been involved in the undercurrent flow of the dental office since 1999.  Married to Dr. Joe for 36 years, she is, by far, the oldest cheerleader on staff.
