Dr. Guccione says joining the team at Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale has provided her with the ideal opportunity to develop and grow her clinical and professional skills. "Prosthodontics is the most artistically oriented specialty," she says, adding "I like being able to solve the puzzle of how to treat the more complicated cases!" Dr. Guccione loves smile design and the ability to restore functionality, aesthetics, and confidence to her patients with custom restorations."I like to work with my hands, and I being able to help patients who might require the removal of many of their remaining teeth followed by the fabrication of fixed or removeable or anterior (front) restorations. The result is a new, improved smile.
After graduating cum laude from Binghamton University in 1998 with a Bachelor of Arts, Studio Art, and Comparative Literature, she achieved her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree with a Minor in Oral Diagnostic Services at University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine in 2003, where she had spent the previous summer as a Dental Pre-Clinic teaching Assistant. Dr. Guccione then served as a GPR resident at Nassau University Medical Center. She then went on to the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) to receive her Certificate in Prosthodontics and her Master of Science in Dentistry in 2008. Dr Guccione served as an associate dentist in several New York based practices before starting her own practice in 2012. Now she is a proud part of the team at Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale.
Dr. Guccione says her ideal patient is one who is engaged with their own treatment, and interested in learning about the dental procedures and treatments involved. "I do my best to determine the most suitable option for each individual patient which will meet his or her need and expectations. She believes that “patients should be proactive when it comes to care, and seek dental specialists who have high level skills and knowledge in their area of expertise as well as a compassionate chairside manner and the willingness to listen to their concerns.”
When she isn't creating incredible new smiles for patients, Dr. Guccione is relaxing at her Tuckahoe home making art, hiking with her children, going to the park, or visiting Park 143 in Bronxville for a meal (her art is featured in the restaurant.) She hopes to make a trip in the future to bring dental procedures to underserved people.
