Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
Ever since he can remember, Dr. De Vincenzo wanted a career in the healthcare profession. He really enjoyed the idea of working directly with people and establishing a connection with them and their families. In the end, he discovered that he enjoyed the business aspect of dentistry as opposed to working in a hospital setting. He also liked the sense of pride he felt from helping others feel better about themselves through repairing their smiles and addressing their dental needs.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
After completing his undergraduate degree at McGill University, Dr. De Vincenzo pursued his doctorate at the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude. Following dental school, he attended a General Practice Residency in Brooklyn, New York, which was one of the most difficult hospital-based residencies in the country! During this time, he worked on-call in a level-one trauma center and regularly cared for patients with serious, life-threatening injuries, as well as medically compromised patients. He performed various dental surgeries (including dental implant placement) and addressed countless medical and dental emergencies. Today, he is also certified in nitrous oxide, Level 1 sedation, and Invisalign. He is currently a member of the Texas Dental Association and Dallas County Dental Society.
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
Dr. De Vincenzo comes from a first-generation Italian family, and he is very close with his parents and two older sisters. He grew up playing hockey in Canada and continues to play recreationally here in the DFW area. Because he grew up with a developmentally challenged sister, he also has a passion for volunteering in this field, regularly taking similar individuals out to play sports and do different activities. He and his wife Dr. Saremi regularly travel to different parts of the world as well in their free time.
