Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy. 

Attributing her success to always striving for excellence and caring for the patient’s general well-being, Dr. Piccolo’s philosophy is to provide care that will be in the patient’s best interest now and in the years to come, so that they can have a smile that will last a lifetime.

When not practicing dentistry, she participates in community outreach, educating the members of the community and nursing home residents about good dental hygiene. She also enjoys yoga and crafts. Her favorite professional publication is the Journal of the American Dental Association.
