Meet Our Doctors

To the patients of Richardson General and Cosmetic Dentistry.

Dr. Nazayat Parvez (Dr. Naz) DDS

I am Dr. Naz and it is my absolute pleasure to join the Richardson General and Cosmetic Dentistry team. I hope that your family and loved ones are healthy and safe during this time. My number one priority is to build your trust and provide high-quality dentistry in a safe, comforting environment. That starts by getting to know each and every one of you. I want to know what your smile goals are and what motivates you to get results that last. For extra comfort, we are also able to provide laughing gas and/or oral sedation. We go the extra mile for your smile. In essence, that means that we at Richardson General and Cosmetic Dentistry will always put the patient experience first.

I received my dental degree from Texas A&M College of Dentistry here in Dallas. However, my education did not stop there. Through additional training, countless hours of continuing education, and membership with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), I have acquired specialized skills in both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Currently, I am working on a fellowship with the AACD, Academy of General Dentistry, and the International Congress of Implantology. Education allows me to implement the best techniques and materials. With photography and 3D digital technology, we can take your smile and upgrade it to fit your custom needs and wants. I love being able to transform patients’ self-confidence while elongating the life of their new, healthy, natural smile. Just ask us for a Smile Design Consult to explore the possibilities with Invisalign (clear aligner orthodontics) and/or veneers.

Outside of dentistry, I enjoy spending time with my husband, singing, painting, and cooking new recipes. However, my passion is dentistry. It truly is a combination of art and science. I am dedicated to this field and to my patients. You deserve the best care, and that’s what my team and I promise to deliver.

Best wishes,
Dr. Naz

Dr. Goad is not only an exceptional dentist, he is also a valued and respected member of our community. I am deeply grateful and honored to have been handed the reigns of his well-established practice and entrusted with your care.

I graduated from Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in New Jersey and completed a fellowship in Implant Dentistry. I am currently pursuing specialization in fields of oral implantology including ‘All-On-Four’ procedures (implant supported dentures) and full mouth rehabilitation in addition to a fellowship in oral surgery emphasizing impacted wisdom teeth. I am certified in Invisalign, a cutting-edge procedure using clear aligners that can give you the smile of your dreams. Finally, I am an active member of American Academy of General Dentistry and International Congress of Implantology.

Apart from my passion for dentistry, I also enjoy spending time with family, traveling, reading books, cooking, music and volunteering.

Sincerely,

During her undergraduate years, Dr. Riddhi Daftary became aware of the huge role that smiling plays in a person’s mood.

Patients love Dr. Daftary because she enjoys building personal relationships with them. It starts with communication and a commitment to reach her patients on every level.

She will provide care that is respectful of and responsive to your individual preferences, needs, and values, and together she will help you improve your oral health. She looks forward to becoming your new dental professional and building a lasting relationship with you.
