Richard S Bohon, DDS has been practicing dentistry in Columbia, Missouri since 1978. Dr. Bohon attended Westminster College in Fulton, MO and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. A third-generation dentist, he graduated from UMKC School of Dentistry and has been practicing in Columbia ever since. Dr. Bohon became interested in treating sleep apnea when he himself was diagnosed. After learning the health risks associated with untreated sleep apnea he received training on treating snoring, sleep apnea, and TMD with oral appliance therapy. Dr. Bohon is a member of the ADA, Missouri Dental Association, Columbia Dental Society, and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. He is also a member of the American Sleep and Breathing Academy.
Dr. Bohon loves cycling and spends a lot of his free time riding to Rocheport and back along the MKT trail. He is also a huge Mizzou football fan, you will find him enjoying almost every home game with his wife and kids.
I have been working as an Expanded Function Dental Assistant for over 25 years. I have been assisting Dr. Bohon for the last 8 years. I have received additional training in sleep and TMJ disorders. Improving a patient’s quality of life by helping them get a better night of sleep and eliminating their pain due to a TMJ disorder has been very rewarding! I love getting to know my patients and have become close friends with several over the years.
When I am not helping patients I enjoy gardening, traveling, and spending time with my family. I am the BIGGEST Chiefs Football fan and love attending games at Arrowhead Stadium!
My husband of 20 years and I have two daughters and a sweet little Shih Tzu named Bennett.
I joined the Bohon team in December of 2020, I have 5 years of medical billing experience and 10 years of patient service experience in a medical setting. I enjoy getting to know our patients and love when they recommend me new books for my always growing “To be read” shelf. I have a husband, a young son and two dogs that I love to hike with when the Missouri weather allows. In my free time you can find me reading and I am always adding to my small personal library.
