Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ricci "Ricci Family Dentistry was founded in 1987, after purchasing the pre-existing practice of Dr. Ciaramello. A lot has changed throughout the years, but many things have remained the same. We are proud to have generations of patients, some for almost 30 years!

We are a family dental practice, right down to Dr. Ricci's daughter who is one of the front desk receptionists, and Dr. Ricci's wife who is an assistant. Dr. Ricci's son, Eric, is a student at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, and will join his father in practice in 2017. Finally, Linda, our second receptionist is a good family friend, and was a patient herself for over 20 years before she joined our team in 2007.

Dr. John see's every patient himself, for every single procedure, whether that is a cleaning or a crown; we do not have hygienists at our practice. Though most hygienists do fantastic work, Dr. John has always seen each patient for the entirety of every visit, and has made lasting friendships this way. Also, we believe that the more time the doctor spends with the patient, the more time there is to check your mouth for cavities, or signs of oral cancer.

We are a proud family practice, and as such, strive to provide you and your family with an encompassing and compassionate experience, through the usage of 21st century dental technology!"

After my nightmare with aspen dental I spent weeks reviewing different dentist and I finally found one. The reviews lived up to the hype and I'm very happy with the results. From the receptionist all the way to the dentist their staff is profesional, polite and friendly. Thank you for everything, you guys rock! ?? Congrats to Eric Ricci, DMD on his license, he's the man if you need a dentist this is the right choice ????

Dr. Ricci's practice is very comforting and warm. He fully explains everything to you and I feel comfortable asking questions. He has helped a family member overcome fear of coming to the dentist. I'm so grateful my family has Dr. Ricci's staff and glad his son is joining the practice.

Dr. Ricci is the best dentist I have been to in my life. From arranging appointments and being greeted by his staff, to the absolute comfort and care while he is working on my teeth, no one else compares. Great bedside manner, best technology, superlative experience. I used to hate dealing with my dentist, now I look forward to it.

Dr. Ricci is great ! I have been with him as a patient for close to 30 yrs. Dr Ricci is very compassionate, caring and giving. Chrissy is the office manager and she makes sure if there is a problem she gets you right in. Family is what this office is all about. I enjoy being part of Dr. Ricci's dental family.

I have had Dr. John Ricci as my dentist for the last 30 years. Over this time, I have come to respect him for his professionalism, his strong background in his field, and his friendly demeanor. He has always proven to be accommodating. When emergency situations have arisen he has always made himself available promptly. This saved me a lot of pain when I had a cracked tooth that mimicked a severe sinus infection. I would recommend him for any patients.

You can't do any better than Dr. John Ricci - Family Dentistry. I've been a patient for some 15 years. Dr. Ricci puts you at ease the moment you walk in his office. He provides the highest quality of care, explains with great clarity what he's doing and why, educates you on preventative care and does so in a very relaxed, family friendly environment. He's A+.

To be honest there is not one dentist that has ever made me feel completely comfortable until I met Dr Ricci he is the complete package friendly, compassionate, and knowledgeable! I have had such anxiety to a point I didn't see a dentist in years and I had great coverage but just the idea of going I would cancel and hour before or just not go and pay the fee for the missed appointment! If anyone feels the same please give Dr Ricci a try I promise you he will be your dentist forever!!!
