Meet Dr. Richard Caringella

In 2016, Dr. Rick Caringella decided it was time for a change. After maintaining a successful dental office in the Jefferson Park neighborhood of Chicago for over 30 years, Dr. Caringella and his wife Jennifer wanted to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city. They made what they’re calling a “quality of life” move to Kalamazoo, MI and haven’t looked back.

Dr. Caringella received his dental degree from Loyola University School of Dentistry in 1985. He opened his Jefferson Park practice in 1986, where he provided a variety of dental services to his patients including orthodontics, veneers and mini implants. Dr. Caringella maintains a membership with the American Dental Association and looks forward to getting involved with local organizations in Kalamazoo.


In his free time, Dr. Caringella enjoys playing golf, biking, motorcycling, reading a good book and traveling to new destinations when he has the opportunity.

Dr. Caringella believes in the importance of spending quality time with each patient, listening and focusing on their individual needs. Providing superior quality dental work for each patient is par for the course with him.
