Rick G. Friedrichs, DDS, MAGD

I grew up in Amarillo, Texas, and graduated from Tascosa High School in 1975. From there I moved to Houston, where I met my beautiful wife at the church where my father was the pastor and where we both attended in the Heights. I graduated from the University of Houston in 1979, and my wife, Carol, and I were married by my father just before I started dental school. I graduated from the University of Texas Dental School in 1983, and after a short internship I began serving the Tomball and Magnolia communities and the Spring and Cypress areas in 1984. I am so proud and humbled to still be serving those very same communities today at our location on Alma Street in Tomball. My wife and I have been blessed with two boys and a girl, all of whom graduated from Tomball High School. My son and his wife, as well my daughter, still reside here in Tomball, while my youngest son and his wife live in Edna, Texas, on the Lavaca Rio Ranch. Come by or give us a call today and I know you will experience dentistry as never before!

Mabel Abraham, DDS

My family moved to Texas when I was 4 years old, and we have called Houston home ever since. I attended Baylor University in Waco (Sic ’em, Bears!) and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, with minors in chemistry and medical humanities. I then pursued my dental degree at the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio, where I was blessed to gain an invaluable education at one of the top ranked dental schools in the nation. I am passionate not only about dentistry, but also about each patient’s experience in the dental chair. It is my commitment that every patient leaves happier, healthier, and more knowledgeable about their oral health each time they visit the office. My husband, Bryan, and I, along with our fur baby Allie, have lived in the Tomball area for the past few years. I feel so blessed and excited to join Dr. Friedrichs’s staff and for the opportunity to serve this lovely community.
