Meet Italo Di Prisco, DDS
"I knew that oral surgery was the right choice for me, and I was eager to join a practice where I could help change people's lives."
Dr. Di Prisco came from a family of doctors, so he always knew that he wanted to go into the medical field. After he learned more about the background of oral surgery, he knew that this would be the right choice for him. After his residency, he wanted to join a practice where he could practice the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery. He joined the team of experts Mountain State Oral & Facial Surgery and is very excited to deliver excellent oral surgery care to the community here. Dr. Di Prisco highly values making the patient feel comfortable with their procedure, which is why he explains the process from beginning to end to put them at ease.
