Dentistry Today


Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry hosted the “Smiles on Us Dental Day” on February 27 in Wilmington, North Carolina, providing free dental care to 144 patients. The donation included more than $50,000 of dental treatment as 35 Riccobene team members extracted 103 teeth and filled 118 cavities for people without dental insurance who were unable to afford the treatment they needed.

“Patients traveled more than two hours away to receive dental care from us,” said Dr. Michael Riccobene, founder of Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry. “We understand the importance of giving back to the communities we serve, and I’m proud of our team members who volunteered their time and talents to help those who need us. Oral health is not only important in maintaining healthy teeth and gums but also linked to overall health, and we are proud to serve. It’s who we are.”

Through the generosity of more than 30 North Carolina locations and more than 75 dentists, Riccobone Associates Family Dentistry said it is leaving a legacy of giving and service while offering a team of dentists and team members excellent opportunities.
