Dr. Randolph “Randy” Birsch was raised in Chesapeake, Virginia. His parents being a dentist and microbiologist, Dr. Birsch’s natural inclination toward science was fostered by his family. In 2004, he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from Old Dominion University. Concurrently, Dr. Birsch began his employment at NASA Langley Research Center where he contributed to the research team that earned the National Commercial Invention of the Year Award.
In 2010, Dr. Birsch graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Dental Medicine. After earning his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree, he joined the US Army and served honorably as a dental corps officer. During this time, Dr. Birsch demonstrated a devotion to service by continually seeking avenues to give back to his community and profession. He provided pro bono dental care at the Fayetteville Care Clinic, helped advance the military Red Cross Dental Assistant Program, and volunteered with the Mission of Mercy.
In 2018, Dr. Birsch began his enrollment in the Endodontics Department at Boston University’s Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine. He conducted endodontic research whilst enrolled at BU and completed the program in 2021. Dr. Birsch and his family thoroughly enjoyed three years of New England beaches, lobster in any form, and the many museums.
Dr. Birsch distinguished himself within the American Association of Endodontists by serving on the AAE’s Research and Scientific Affairs Committee. He is a current member of the Virginia Dental Association, Richmond Dental Society, AAE, AAPD, ADA, and MDS. He looks forward to investing in the community of Richmond and participating in local outreach with our Commonwealth Endodontics Team.
Dr. Birsch and his wife, Lea, are thrilled to be residing in Virginia. Richmond is the closest that their two children have ever resided to grandparents and extended relatives. The Birsch family loves just about any activity involving water, but the daily sources of enjoyment are throwing the ball for their English shepherd or constructing with blocks.
