Meet Dr. Richard E Boyd, Jr.

Dr. Richard E. Boyd Jr. is ecstatic to be starting a brand new practice in Virginia at River City Orthodontics and welcome patients to the office! Dr. Boyd grew up in Columbia, SC where he watched his father create beautiful smiles.

Dr. Boyd is a proud graduate of Furman University, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Health and Exercise Science. During high school and college, Dr. Boyd worked at Boyd Orthodontics as a lab technician and orthodontic assistant; after college, he attended the James B. Edwards School of Dental Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina. He was lucky enough to not only earn his Doctorate in Dental Medicine but also meet his wife, Dr. Ali Byrd Boyd, while at MUSC. They were married in 2021 in her hometown of Harrisonburg, Virginia.

Dr. Boyd completed his orthodontic residency at Tufts University. While he and his wife Ali loved their time in South Carolina and the Northeast, they are excited to be putting down roots in Richmond, VA. Dr. Boyd and Dr. Ali are settling into their new home in Glen Allen, VA, and enjoy spending time with family, friends, and their beloved British labs, Lilly and Lyla. They are also thrilled to welcome their daughter, Hadley James, into the world, born September 7th 2023. 

In his free time, Dr. Boyd enjoys spending time on the water, boating or scuba diving, playing cards with his wife, and cooking! He and his wife have recently mastered sushi making, so ask him at your next appointment what kind of rolls they have been making.

Dr. Boyd looks forward to meeting you at your next appointment and continuing to provide exceptional care along with the team at River City Orthodontics!
