Introducing Dr. Piccione


Dear Patients and Families,


I am very excited to announce a new addition to our practice.

Dr. Michael A. Piccione, an exceptional dentist, joins our dental team after being a colleague, mentee and friend of mine for the past six years. Michael has a kind, welcoming personality and a strong background in both dentistry and leadership. He has been with us since February 2016 and has been a full-time team member since July.

Dr. Piccione is a graduate of the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, one of the nation’s premier institutions. During dental school, he served as president of his class and was the president of the national dental fraternity Delta Sigma Delta. Following graduation, he spent five years working in community health, treating patients in underserved communities in Shasta and Sonoma counties. He also worked as an instructor to first-year dental students at his alma mater and remains an adjunct faculty member.

When he is not caring for his patients, Dr. Piccione is an avid bowler and competes regularly in amateur events across the country. He lives in Menlo Park with his wife, Anna.

It is important for you to know that I am not retiring any time soon. My passion for dentistry and for my patients is ongoing, and I find that the addition of Dr. Piccione has brought new energy to our team which better enables us all to care for you. I have adjusted my schedule but remain in practice three days per week. With Dr. Piccione’s help, we have been able to expand our hours and our services; we are now open on Fridays and can offer evening appointments on Thursdays or by patient request.

It will be my pleasure to introduce you to Dr. Piccione during your next visit to the office. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to care for your oral health. Your confidence means everything to us.

Warmest Regards,


Dr. Mo Budak
