Dr. Vincent Monticciolo
With a passion for learning that is equal to his passion for helping others, Dr. Vincent Monticciolo has created a life where his skills and purpose are combined. Graduating from the University of Detroit School of Dentistry, Dr. Monticciolo received many awards and was selected to the Honors Clinical Program. In 2001, he
earned his Masters Degree in Business Administration. Also, in 2013, he earned his Law Degree, all while practicing dentistry full-time and taking various continuing education courses.
In addition to his family and sedation dentistry practice, Dr. Monticciolo has been driven by opportunities to lead through example, which were first shown in his days as a part-time faculty member at the dental school he’d once attended. Over time, his drive grew into leadership and a commitment to serve his community, and it was there that everything really fell into place for him.
As inspiration to help struggling individuals who could not afford dental care took shape, Dr. Monticciolo found a way to improve the community he lived in by offering free dental care to a few needy individuals. It was an incredible experience and Dr. Monticciolo, along with his wife, Dr. Natalie Monticciolo, began to think of how they could take this simple concept and make it grow into something larger. After relocating to the Tampa, Florida area, Dentistry from the Heart was formed in 2001. It has become synonymous with Dr. Monticciolo’s energy and efforts to embrace giving back. Since then, Dentistry from the Heart has become a charity that helps coordinate over 250 events in all 50 states, as well as internationally.
Furthermore, in 2012, Dr. Monticciolo started Dental Care Delivered, a mobile dental service that provides care to residents in assisted living facilities and nursing homes around the west coast of Florida. It is another step to ensuring that more people can have the smile they deserve, regardless of their circumstances.
Today, Dr. Monticciolo lives with his wife and two daughters in Palm Harbor, Florida. Aside from his charity work, he enjoys spending quality time with his family and practicing dentistry. Seeing how his daughters beam with pride when his Dentistry from the Heart event makes the news every year, featuring him, the founder and spokesperson of this charity, is a great reminder of the impact he has on those less fortunate.
