Tidewater Family Dentistry Practice History 

            Our practice has been serving the greater Newport News community for more than 40 years.  It was originally founded by Dr. A. Andrew “Andy” Robertson, who loyally served his patients with care and respect.  He took thousands of hours of continuing education, enhancing his skills to provide a broad spectrum of dental services.  Outside of the office, Dr. Robertson was devoted to his family and church and participated in volunteer dental missions all over the world.

            After Dr. Robertson’s passing in 2009, Dr. John Randall “Randy” Owen became the owner, and the practice took on its current name of Tidewater Family Dentistry.  Dr. Robertson’s family was comfortable with Dr. Owen, recognizing that he would continue to run the practice with integrity and a commitment to excellence. 

Dr. Owen’s number one goal was to earn the trust of the existing staff and patients.  He made some physical renovations to the office building and upgraded the technological capabilities of the practice.  Patients, both existing and new, appreciate the welcoming and comfortable feel they encounter when visiting Tidewater Family Dentistry.  Dr. Owen has worked hard to enhance the pediatric program of the practice and to develop good relationships with the area’s many dental specialists.   He is proud to be a member of the Newport News community.

In January of 2015, Dr. Owen and Tidewater Family Dentistry officially partnered with Atlantic Dental Care, a group of 89 respected local dentists who share a common vision of how to preserve quality dental care in Southeastern Virginia.  ADC offers 59 convenient locations in the Hampton Roads area, and all locations are locally owned and operated.

In June of 2019, Dr. Owen and Tidewater Family Dentistry officially purchased the neighboring dental practice of James F. Dollar, DDS and will merge into Dr. Dollar's existing location.  Dr. Dollar and his long time associate dentist Susan W. Connolly, DDS will continue working for Tidewater Family Dentistry.
