Partners in your Dental Health
Drs. Tom and Grace Giacobbi first met freshman year of dental school. They became fast friends and spent many hours studying together. After graduation, they were engaged and later married in Albany, NY (Graceâ€™s home town). Growing tired of the long cold winters in Upstate New York, Drs. Tom and Grace packed their golf clubs and moved to Chandler, AZ in 1998. They had visited family in Arizona twice before, and selected Chandler because it is a family friendly, high tech community with tremendous growth.
Dr. Tom spent the next four years working as an associate at two offices and searching for a practice location. Dr. Grace has worked for the Gila River Healthcare Corporation from 1998-2002, providing dental care to the members of the Gila River Indian Community. It took three years to find, plan and build our office at the southwest corner of Queen Creek and Alma School Roads, but we think you will agree it was worth the wait. Drs. Tom and Grace have three children.
