Graniteville Dental Solutions Now Accepting New Patients

Graniteville Dental Solutions Holds Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Graniteville Dental Solutions officially opened its doors to the public on January 17, 2023, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by local leaders and members of the community. The ceremony was kicked off by the President of the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut, Tony Sheridan.

State Representative Kathleen McCarty presented an Official State Citation honoring Graniteville Dental Solutions on the opening of their new practice. Rob Brule, Waterford's First Selectman, expressed his gratitude for the practice staying in town and supporting the growth of businesses in the area. In attendance were Waterford's Director of Fire Services, Michael Howley, Waterford Police Chief, Marc Balestracci, Publicity Chair and first Vice President of the Waterford Historical Society, Holly Camerota, and local dental professionals Dr. Mike DePascale, Dr. Jeff Kozlowski, and Drs. Jane and Tom Matyas.

Dr. John Drew spoke on the history of the practice, which began with Dr. Joseph Castanza over 70 years ago, right after World War II. Dr. Castanza opened his practice on Federal Street in New London, CT. Shortly after that, he moved the practice next to Waterford High School and remained there until 1987, when Waterford expanded Route 1. The practice then moved into the Meshekow Furs plaza for the next 35 years, and Dr. Castanza passed it down to Dr. Edward Raccio, who upon retirement in 2019, joined Raccio and Drew Dental under the Resolute Dental Practice name. Joining Resolute Dental Partners "made it possible for the newest dental technology to be added to the practice and to build a new, state-of-the-art office," Dr. Drew states.

Dr. Gregory Toback, the founder of Resolute Dental Partners, spoke about how proud Resolute has been to be a part of the Graniteville Dental Solutions name and support the team there.

Dr. John Drew, Dr. Joshua John, and Dr. Yuvika Raj Kumar are excited to announce that Graniteville Dental Solutions is now accepting new patients. If you would like to make an appointment, give the team a call at 860.443.0861.
