Michael Rizzone, DDS
Originally from the town of Clarence, a suburb of Buffalo, and similar in size to Corning. Dr. Mike went to undergraduate school at the University of Buffalo and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in Biological Sciences. He then went south for dental school and attended the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill (home of the Tarheels). Following graduation Dr. Mike did a one year residency program at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Fayetteville NC. After working in North Carolina for two years Dr. Mike wanted to return north, closer to his family and moved back to upstate New York. He first worked in the Adirondacks near Glens Falls. Next he worked in the Fingerlakes area, at both the City of Geneva and Town of Bath. After meeting with Dr. John Sementilli and finding that they had similar treatment styles, they mutually agreed to transition the office to Dr. Mike in 2018. When not helping his patients Dr. Mike likes to play and watch basketball, follow the Buffalo Bills, and go for runs.
