Dr. Steven Ricci
Dr. Steven C. Ricci earned two Bachelor of Science degrees in just four years at Wake Forest University, then continued his education at the Medical College of Virginia School of Dentistry, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1996.
This degree was awarded with the distinction of magna cum laude due to his high level of academic achievement. He held many leadership positions, such as vice-president of the medical campus honor council for two years, and served as a student member of the dental school admissions committee. He also was one of a few select students invited to join the prestigious National Dental Honor Society. After graduation, Dr. Ricci decided to pursue advanced specialty training in orthodontics for an additional two years to earn a certificate of orthodontic specialty and a master’s degree from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry.
Dr. Ricci has practiced orthodontics in the Atlanta area since 1998, and is an active member of many leading dental and orthodontic organizations, including the:
Seattle Study Club of Atlanta (An elite inter-disciplinary study club)
Georgia Association of Orthodontists (President 2011-2012)
Georgia Dental Association
Northern District Dental Society
American Association of Orthodontists
American Dental Association
Dr. Ricci recognizes the importance of staying up to date with the rapid advances in the orthodontic field and continues to spend in excess of 40 hours per year on continuing education, despite the Georgia State Board of Dentistry requirements of only 20 hours per year.
Dr. Ricci founded Ricci Orthodontics in June of 2001 in the Johns Creek area. He and his wife, Kelly, stay very busy with their two daughters, Julia and Amanda, and their son, Brennan. They enjoy living in Cumming, where they live an active life in the community and are members of Saint Brendan’s Church. Dr. Ricci is an ex-triathlete that still enjoys health and fitness activities when time permits as well as watching college and professional football.
