News From Gentle Dental

We believe in creating a relationship with our patients that goes beyond the office doors. In this blog we will update you on the education that we at Gentle Dental are pursing to give our patients the very best. We will also try to share material that will help you get to know us better! Because once you're a patient of Dr. Scaramuzzo's, you're family. 

Let me introduce myself...

Welcome to my first blog post ever! First and foremost, let me introduce myself. My name is Anthony Scaramuzzo (or Dr. S!)and I am the new, and proud owner of GENTLE DENTAL.


My wife Anne and I came up with that name after brainstorming about what I would like to be “known for” and GENTLE DENTAL is what we came up with! I hope you find me to be even keeled and gentle when I am treating you in our office.

I have had the privilege of meeting most of Dr. Kelly’s (my predecessor and mentor) patients by now, and if you are reading this and new to the practice- WELCOME!


Let me tell you a bit about how I came to own GENTLE DENTAL. I was working out in Greenville and it was a long commute to get home to my family (we live in Cary.) While exploring my options on how to get a position closer to my home, a mutual friend introduced me to Dr. Kelly and he told me he was looking to retire soon. Almost 2 years ago, I began working every other Monday alongside him. I was instantly drawn to the family atmosphere that this office provided. I never felt rushed to see my patients, and was so impressed with the staff and wonderful patient base. About 6 months ago I became owner of this practice and I am so happy with the change. I am closer to my family and also get to give my current patients the attention and time they deserve to have when they come to the dentist. I learned so much from Dr. Kelly along the way and I feel so blessed that he decided to choose me to continue his work here on Leesville Road.

In this blog:

-I hope to let you know what efforts my staff and I are making to keep abreast of innovations and change in dentistry and how they will affect you.

-I will share details and pictures of our travels to conventions and fairs around the country

-I will let you know events that GENTLE DENTAL is participating in, and how we are active in the North Raleigh community

-I will share anecdotes, stories and pictures of our staff so you can better get to know us!

Thanks for reading and hope to see you at the office soon!


Below is a pic of when I closed on the practice. Awesome day!
