Dr. Richard Gillis, the founder of Gillis Dental and a practicing dentist in Needham for over 35 years, has recently retired. As the proud grandparent of three cherished grandsons, he hopes to spend his retirement watching them grow up, traveling with his wife and friends, and improving his golf game!. Dr. Gillis attended Boston College for his undergraduate studies, and continued at Boston University School of Graduate Dentistry, where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 1980. Dr. Gillis was honored with the International College of Dentists Award for outstanding achievement during his four years of study at Boston University.
