“Giving my patients the smile they always wanted is what I do,” says Dr. Victor Riccardi. Though born in Framingham, Massachusetts, he moved to Atlanta as a child. He is a graduate of Marist, the University of Georgia and Emory University School of Dentistry. His well-established practice in North Atlanta focuses on the patient. As a result, word-of-mouth referrals keep his thriving office growing.
With experience in the U.S. Army Dental Corps, as leader of the Prosthetic Department, Dr. Riccardi developed critical understanding of the options available to improving dental health, comfort and function. “Working with my patients is the best part of my job. I love to show them how we can use restorative and cosmetic procedures to improve their lives.”
Dr. Riccardi’s dedication doesn’t end at the office though. He believes in giving back to his profession and community. With his leadership positions in a number of dental organizations and through studies at the L.D. Pankey Institute and the Atlanta Dental Study Group, Dr. Riccardi has been able to keep abreast of the latest technological and procedural advances in dentistry while helping guide the next generation of dental professionals.
He and his wife, Beverly, live in East Cobb and are blessed with daughter Randelle and her husband, Mark Wesley, and son Rick. They have 2 beautiful granddaughters, Taylor and Miranda.
Dr. Riccardi believes in continuing education and working for the dental profession through leadership and involvement in the following organizations:
