meet dr. ricci

Dr. Alyssa Ricci was born and raised in south Florida in a fun-loving Cuban family. After spending six years in Virginia and three years practicing in North Carolina, Dr. Ricci and her husband Jonathan decided it was time to move back home so that they could raise their two beautiful daughters alongside their family and childhood friends. They have loved becoming a part of the Doral community and have felt blessed to be able to call Doral their new home.

Since she was a middle schooler, Dr. Ricci had her heart set on becoming an Orthodontist because of the joy and confidence a transformed smile gave her. She strives to instill that same joy and confidence in her patients today. Nothing makes her happier than creating beautiful smiles, both literally and figuratively. Dr. Ricci says, “Orthodontics doesn’t just feel like a job, it feels like my calling. I am blessed to be in this profession that I love so much!”

Dr. Ricci graduated summa cum laude from the University of Florida with her Bachelor’s in Food Science and Human Nutrition. She earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Virginia Commonwealth University, where she graduated first in her class and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society, which recognizes both scholarship and character. She was elated when she was chosen to stay in Virginia as an Orthodontic resident at VCU/MCV, one of the most sought-after residency programs in the country. Dr. Ricci went on to work at the top orthodontic office in Raleigh, NC – which was the top Invisalign provider in the state and second in the country. She is proud to have worked alongside such an incredible team and will always consider them family.

As a board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Ricci is so excited to bring her knowledge, expertise, and passion for creating beautiful smiles to the Doral community by offering each of her patients an experience like no other. Her goal is to bring out each individual patient’s BEST smile, both inside and out!
