Wakefield Office

Capalbo Dental Group of Wakefield is located at 9 Cherry Lane. Wakefield is rich in history being the business and commercial center of South Kingstown. Settlers came to Wakefield in the early 18th century due to its close proximity to the Saugatucket River and Post Road. The textile and manufacturing boom in the early 1800’s brought mills and a still thriving shopping district to the area. Today modern business and construction mingles with the old. The Capalbo Dental Group office sits across the street from the Belmont Grocery Plaza in an old converted home. Our office is warm and intimate with the feel of an old time family dental office while utilizing the latest advances in dentistry to provide our patients with the best care possible. Dr. Michael, Matthew, and Marcus Capalbo are third generation dentists whose family has deep seeded roots in South County. Their love for the area and for their profession is unmatched. The personal attention each patient receives from our caring staff is part of our old world charm. We pride ourselves on giving our patients the best dental experience possible.

I had neglected going to the dentist for a while and was very apprehensive about the experience. After one of the temporaries on a crown began to hurt, I called. They had me the same day and fixed the problem. I am leaving Rhode Island next month for Florida and hope to find a dental office that has the same professionalism and caring ability as the Capalbo Group.”

Nothing (flossing and brushing many times over the course of a few days), seemed to help. I called and asked if they could help. The receptionist said if I arrived before 3 pm they would fit me in somehow and THEY DID! It wasn’t easy but Gina did a great and successful job of removing the problem with little or no pain!”
