to a dentist’s office like no other
Dr. Richard Epstein’s office, which was constructed in 1984 as an extension of his home, reflects his philosophy of dental care in this community of highly educated consumers who require top-of-the-line professional expertise, yet expect to receive warm and attentive services.
When you enter the practice, you will be welcomed into a sun-filled waiting room where there is always music playing. The treatment rooms have large picture windows looking out on a park-like landscape, where birdfeeders and a gazing ball attract wildlife.
You will probably see rabbits munching in his much photographed prize perennial flowerbeds in summer and wild turkeys marching through the snow in middle of winter.
Health, work, balance
Dr. Epstein believes that a full life should balance work and other interests. Besides his devotion to care for his patients and his perennial gardens, he is a dedicated musician playing with the Norwalk Symphony Orchestra and with small ensemble groups. He is committed to community service and serves on the board of directors of arts organizations and service groups.
On his day off, he hosts a three-hour music show on WPKN FM. You can hear him alternate Wednesday afternoons from 1-4 PM at 89.5FM or on www.wpkn.org . He donates professional time monthly to serve the needy at the dental clinic at Norwalk Hospital.
