Raymond Ricci, DDS
It’s fulfilling to help people feel healthier and more confident in all aspects of their lives. It’s just as fulfilling to spend my days caring for and talking with wonderful people, and developing long-term relationships based on mutual trust and respect.
Commitment to Education
- Bachelor’s degree in biology – California State University, Northridge, 1980
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery – University of Southern California School of Dentistry, 1984
I am committed to providing high-level dental care by using advanced technologies and techniques to achieve the best results. The technical side of dentistry is a passion of mine. Advances in digital technology enable us to provide patients with care that is far more comfortable and convenient.
Each year, I complete many hours of continuing dental education through the Pankey Institute and Spear Education. Both of these continuing education centers provide a foundation not only to treat a variety of dental complications, but to emphasize a systematic and systemic (whole body) approach to dentistry.

Outside the Office
I live in Toluca Lake, within walking distance of the office. It’s a great community, and I’m proud to be a part of it, both personally and professionally.
My wife Suzanne and I were married in 1980. We met on a ski trip to Crested Butte, Colorado. She sat behind me on the bus and the rest is history! She was an elementary school teacher for 35 years and is now retired. We have two amazing sons. Andrew is a dentist who is married and practices in Denver. Tyler lives in Culver City and is in a Ph.D. program for psychology. My personal interests include playing golf, cooking, and photography.
Even when I’m not in the office, I try to make a difference in people’s lives through dentistry. Our office has been involved in two wonderful and meaningful outreach programs. We have provided dental care to the victims of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, and furnish care through a dental clinic in Guatemala under the aegis of the Open Wide Foundation of Spear Education.
