Dentist/Prosthodontists in Harrisonburg, VA

All our professionals at Reichgott and Rigby Prosthodontics Office maintain the highest levels of accreditation and pursue ongoing education to stay abreast of the latest trends in dentistry.

G. Brian Reichgott, D.D.S.

Dr. Reichgott is a graduate of Florida State University, the Medical College of Virginia where he received his Doctoral of General Dentistry, and Marquette University School of Dentistry where he received his specialty training in Prosthodontics.

Dr. Reichgott has furthered his training and understanding by completing a residency program specifically for the diagnosis and effective treatment of TMJ dysfunction. The treatment of TMJ dysfunction is closely related to prosthetic therapy in both focus on the correct orientation of the maxilla (upper jaw) and mandible (lower jaw).  Dr. Reichgott has been treating TMJ dysfunction for almost 30 years with good but not predictable results until now. Due to the advancement of research and technology the diagnosis of TMJ dysfunction has become very predictable. This has resulted in positive predictable results. He has state of the art diagnostic equipment including T-Scan, Joint Vibration Analysis, Tomography and Pharagometer/Rhinometer. Since his approach is non-surgical, treatment modalities include iontophoresis, energex, ultra soud, cold laser, tens unit, trigger point injection therapy and the use of orthotics to orthopedically position the jaws in an ideal position. He has seen dramatic results in both pain alleviation as well as proper TMJ function.

In addition to private practice, Dr. Reichgott taught at both Marquette Dental School as well as the Medical College of Virginia before establishing his initial private practice in Bradenton, Florida. Dr. Reichgott and his wife moved to the Shenandoah Valley  because they wanted their two young daughters to grow up in the peacefulness of the Valley. Dr. Reichgott's doors have been open since 1994 in the Harrisonburg, Virginia area.

Brent L. Rigby, D.D.S.
Dr. Rigby is originally from Northern Utah.  He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Utah with a Bachelor's Degree in Medical Biology.  He then went on to "The" Ohio State University where he completed his Doctorate of Dental Surgery and post graduate studies in Prosthodontics earning a Prosthodontice Specialty Certification and a Master's of Science Degree in Dental Materials.  While at The Ohio State University, he was very fortunate to be educated and trained by some of the finest Prosthodontists in the country.

"During my residency, I came to understand the importance of having an engineer's mindset and craftsman's hand-skills in order to successfully treat and care for some of the most complex and esthetic dental needs."

Following his education, Dr. Rigby and family packed up and moved to the great state of Texas, where he opened a Prosthodontic specialty practice in Austin and spent the next 10 years living life, building an office, and growing his family.

"I am married to the love of my life, Kristen, and we now have 4 very active children.  We've come to discover that what we value most is roots, family, and connection.  These values have led us to our next adventure of relocating to the "Friendly City" of Harrisonburg where we look forward to becoming a part of the community and raising our family in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley."

In his downtime, Dr. Rigby enjoys an active lifestyle, working on projects with his hands, listening to his favorite books on Audible and chasing his children around the yard.
