Dr. Carol Bongiovanni

Dr. Carol Bongiovanni grew up around Aquidneck Island and received a Bachelor of Science Degree from The Rennselaer Polytechnic Institute with a major in Biology. She graduated from Tufts Dental School with a D.M.D. in 1993 and completed her orthodontic residency in 1995.

Dr. Bongiovanni volunteered as an associate professor in the orthodontic department at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco for 15 years.

Her interest in orthodontics started when she had braces as a teenager and was encouraged by her new, healthy smile at the finish of the treatment. Her orthodontist became her inspiration!


She enjoys traveling, hiking, skiing, snowboarding and baking for willing recipients! One of her favorite things about moving back home is seeing all four seasons again.
