The tooth fairy still rewards adults who keep their teeth nice, leaving grown-up gifts, such as issues of the Economist and Pontiac Azteks, under their pillows. Grin and win with this Groupon: for $79, you get a dental-care package at Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry, valid at all seven area locations (a $335 total value). The package includes:

  • A comprehensive exam (an $83 value)
  • X-rays (a $166 value)
  • A cleaning (an $86 value)

Specializing in patient comfort, each Riccobene Associates location hosts a dental staff dedicated to protecting and polishing mouth bones with preventive and cosmetic services available for adults and kids as young as 4. During a thorough exam, a tooth technician scours the mouth in search of signs of gum disease and oral cancer. All-seeing x-rays provide the dentist with an uninhibited view of the mouthscape, aiding in the detection of tooth decay and developmental problems including teeth nesting crookedly in gums or molars with vestigial tails. A professional cleaning helps rid the mouth of loitering plaque and ensures continued chomper health. Each office welcomes patients with warm Starbucks coffee that spurts from machines and flat-screen TVs that occupy attention spans during treatment and keep jealous eyes from scheduling extra optometry appointments.

Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry

After attending New York University's College of Dentistry, Dr. Michael Riccobene relocated to Selma, North Carolina where, in 2000, he founded the first Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry office. Since then, Dr. Riccobene has expanded his practice to seven other locations, with the newest office opened recently in Raleigh. To keep up with the demands of each office, Dr. Riccobene works alongside 10 other dentists whom he vets for their chairside manner as well as their dental experience: they must be patient, have a good sense of humor, be as good at explaining procedures as they are at performing them, and be able to name all 43 presidents in alphabetical order under local anesthesia.

Once on staff, each dentist aims to make every visit—from preventative exams to root canals and Invisalign fittings—comfortable and fear-free for the client. Riccobene's team also eases nerves by keeping wait times short, dispensing coffee from Starbucks machines in the lobby, and hanging a satellite TV in view of each treatment chair. Along with being an advocate for patients, Dr. Riccobene gives back to his community by sponsoring the Carolina Mudcats and participating in business expos.
