Dr. Richard Skibell is a Texas cowboy at heart and has been practicing orthodontics since 1974. Dr. Skibell grew up in Lubbock, Texas, and attended the University of Texas School of Orthodontics where he earned his degree. Soon after, he started his own private practice where he worked from 1975-2010.
Dr. Skibell was also a Captain in the Air Force where all POW’s being released from the Vietnam War came through his stationed base. Dr. Skibell is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Texas Association of Orthodontists, Dallas County Dental Society and the Southwestern Association of Orthodontists. In his spare time, he is an avid golfer and sports enthusiast who loves cheering for the Dallas Mavericks and the University of Texas Longhorns football team.
Dr. Law played basketball in college before attending the
University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine and later the Jacksonville
University School of Orthodontics. Always advancing in his field, Dr. Law is an
active member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental
Association, and multiple online professional study groups. He is also a
frequent lecturer on clinical excellence and smile design. Changing lives
through orthodontics and smiles are his passion! With a brood of eight kids,
Dr. Law loves to stay busy doing “daddy-time” whether it’s hide-and-go-seek,
board games, or working on jumpshots in the driveway. Outside of work, Dr. Law
and his wife, Jessica, enjoy spending time with their family, playing sports,
and dining out for sushi, hamburgers, or BBQ.
Reviews from our patients
I absolutely love the team here. They’re thorough and I’m honestly kind of bummed that my braces are off now because this team has become framily! I’d recommend Smile Doctors to anyone that needs braces!
