Dr. Michael Capalbo was the first of the third generation of Capalbo dentists to follow in his father and grandfather’s footsteps. Michael’s vision and commitment have been vital to the expansion of Plum Dental. Like his father and grandfather before him, “Dr. Mike’s” calming bedside manner and passion for dentistry have earned him a loyal following.
Dr. Capalbo graduated from Providence College in 2001 Magna Cum Laude and received his dental degree from The University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine in 2006. He attends (and sometimes teaches) continuing education classes to stay on the cutting edge of dentistry.
He’s an avid golfer, spends spare time at Seaside Beach Club, and enjoys traveling with his family.
