Meet Dr. Viola

Born and raised in Rochester NY, i am privileged to have been providing your dental care for over 35 years. I grew up in Irondequoit and attended St Cecilia’s and Bishop Kearney High School. After studying at the University of Notre Dame and Loyola of Chicago School of Medicine and Dentistry, I worked in Chicago and then many years in beautiful Geneva NY. I eventually returned to my roots to practice in Webster. It has been great to be back home for more than 20 years with all of my family, friends and familiar places. My wife Rebecca, an administrator in the Rochester City School District, and I live in Penfield with our little rescue dog Joey. We enjoy the outdoors, traveling and dining in all of our wonderful local restaurants. In my younger years, I was an avid sailor, scuba diver, bicyclist, musician and for a short time, a radio DJ. Now i spend my free time golfing, skiing and cheering on the Fighting Irish.
