Meet the Team
Dr. Dominick Falcone • DMD
Dr. Falcone has been providing exceptional dentistry in Blackwood for 27 years. He grew up in Blackwood and practices down the street from Highland High School, where he graduated from many years ago. He obtained his degree (DMD) from Fairleigh Dickinson Dental School and has continued his training with hundreds of hours of continuing education from schools like Penn, Temple and UMDNJ. Dr. Falcone has been a member of the Spear Continuing Education Group since 2009 and is a current member of the International Team of Implantologist (ITI). Dr. Falcone has treated thousands of patients in the area, probably someone you know, and works hard to ensure you and your family receive all of the care you need at a price you can afford. Between his professional demeanor, friendly personality and experienced background, you can be confident you are in good hands.
Dr. Falcone has been married for over 25 years and has 3 children. He is an avid sports fan and follows all the Philadelphia teams and his alma mater Rutgers University (Go RU!) very closely. It's not unusual for him to talk sports a little longer than he should with his patients during their appointments. Outside of the office he enjoys playing tennis and golf with his family and friends. His ideal vacation would be going to the Jersey shore.
MELISSA CARRELLI, CDA, RDA, A.A.S. • Office Mgr. & Dental Assistant
Melissa graduated from the Camden County College Dental Assisting Program and achieved an Associate's Degree in Science in 2006. Shortly after graduating she joined Falcone Dentistry as Dr. Falcone's dental assistant. In 2008, Melissa assumed a major role at Falcone Dentistry as Officer Manager. Melissa's key role is scheduling, confirming appointments and insurance processing. She is also our financial coordinator and is responsible for making sure our patients understand their financial responsibilities. She assists those who are in need of financial assistance by reviewing the different payment options available when treatment needed goes beyond their insurance benefits.
Away from the office, Melissa spends most of her time with her husband and twin boys. She enjoys the beach, fishing and watching her son's play baseball.
