Meet the Doctor

Dr. Viloria

Richard P. Viloria, DDS

For Dr. Richard Viloria, making people comfortable in the dentist chair is centered around listening to them and being genuine. “My hope is to earn their trust, so that I can be given the opportunity to provide them with the best quality of dentistry,” he says.

Originally from St. Louis, MO, Dr. Viloria has been a native of Olathe, KS for the last 13 years. He earned his Bachelors of Science in Organismal Biology from KU, and achieved his Doctorate from the UMKC School of Dentistry, following up with advanced training with the renowned Frank Spear of Spear Education in Scottsdale, AZ. Now with 14 years in the industry, Dr. Viloria has held memberships with ADA, MDA, AGD, AACD, Seattle Study Club, and Spears Faculty Club.

“I like working with people and making them smile,” says Dr. Viloria. “I enjoy transforming peoples’ smiles, giving them quality dentistry, and changing their perception of going to the dentist. It doesn't need to be a "sterile, cold” place. We are here to help you - not judge you.” The best part of the job? “Hard to say, but there are two at the top: watching the true transformation in someone as they see their smile for the first time, and just hearing laughter in the office. In both cases it’s an affirmation that we're doing things right.”

When he’s not working to give his patients healthy, happy smiles, Dr. Viloria can be found spending time with wife Christa, son Braden, and daughter Grace; usually at one of the kids’ sports or outdoor activities. The family supports their church, Young Life, and Food for the Hungry. Given a year off to do anything, Dr. Viloria says the choice is travel, hands-down – starting with taking his family to the Philippines to connect with their heritage.

 

Meet the Team

Christina Place

Office Manager Christina Place

Office Manager Christina Place says the best part of her job at New Horizons Lenexa is working with an amazing, smart team and getting the privilege to help care for our  patients each day: “I look forward to getting to know every patient who comes through the door,” she says.  

Christina is originally from Michigan, and moved with her family to Kansas four years ago. She has 13 years of experience, starting as a chairside assistant, and gradually moving into office management without losing her passion for the industry. “I’ve been hooked on dentistry for years,” she comments.

When she’s not ensuring the daily functions of the office (“My home away from home!”), Christina can be found spending time with her family, which includes “both human and fur kids”. She remains an avid University of Michigan fan (Go Blue!). 

Amanda Wissman

RDH Amanda Wissman

Registered Dental Hygienist Amanda says she always wanted to go into the healthcare field, but nursing was not for her. Now she helps patients improve oral health and ensures their care and comfort during every visit.

A Wamego, Kansas, native, Amanda earned her Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene from Johnson County Community College and has 14 years of experience. She says she enjoys working in a team environment and helping people learn that their procedure can be comfortable and pleasant instead of painful or frightening.

When she’s not attending to patient comfort, Amanda spends time with her two daughters, Camryn and Reese. She enjoys hanging out at the pool and family trips to Branson, and would love to take her family someplace tropical and live in a small home right on the water. 

 

Tira Cunningham

RDH Tira Cunningham

Registered Dental Hygienist Tira says her job description is “Keeping smiles healthy and clean!” She says she loves the medical field and getting to help people, and remembers enjoying having her own teeth cleaned as a child.

Tira grew up in Topeka and currently resides in Gardner, Kansas. She earned her Bachelors degree in Liberal Arts of Science from Ottawa University and her dental hygiene certificate from JCCC. She says, “I have the best co-workers, and I love having a relationship with my patients and teaching them that we are here to help!”

When she’s not educating patients on healthy, happy smiles, Tira is spending time with her husband, Nick, and their two children Brenley and Briggs. She enjoys her kids’ school and sports activities, hanging out at the soccer field or basketball court, relaxing on the beach, and working with the elderly population. She says she would love to take a year and go with her husband island hopping: “Bora Bora, Turks and Caicos to name just a few, we would explore, do as many excursions as possible and then relax on the beach!”
