Dr. Richard Tiegen, DMD, A.P., Dipl.Ac. | Board Certified in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine


Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, Integrative Medicine


Are you having recurrent pain or headaches? Are you looking for drug-free care for auto-immune conditions, stress and sleep issues, digestive problems and other conditions or symptoms ? Have you tried various medications with little to no success? Have you experienced debilitating side effects from medicine? Acupuncture may be the answer for you. I utilize both Eastern and Western systems to arrive at a diagnosis. My original interest in acupuncture began when I was a young dental student in Boston, MA.  I observed a difficult surgery performed with acupuncture instead of anaesthesia. I became inspired to learn more. With my training in both Acupuncture and Dentistry, I am uniquely comfortable and qualified to read x-rays and MRI's and provide injection therapies. My Oriental medicine studies included an internship in China and I offer my patients custom and patented formulas from my complete herbal pharmacy.

I have an extensive background in treatment for pain. I was part of the staff at a large Neurology and Orthopedic group for many years. I was part of the staff at Jupiter Medical Center's Wellness Center as well.


I have excellent outcomes with fertility treatment, many times when other treatments including IVF have failed. 

I am a  graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, the Acupressure-Acupuncture Institute, and  the Shanghai Guangthong Hospital Internship.
