Dr. Raggi grew up on a small farm in Newfield, New York. His parents Tony and Carol have lived in Tompkins county for over 30 years. His father has worked for Catholic Charities as a social worker and his mother worked as an ER nurse at Cayuga Medical. At the age of 6 he knew that he would someday become a dentist. He is a graduate Immaculate Conception in Ithaca and Newfield High School. His years of training took him to many different cities. He worked as a dental assistant for two general dentists, an oral surgeon, and a mobile dentist. After graduating from Case Western Reserve University Dental school in Cleveland, OH, he and his soon-to-be wife, Melissa, moved to Massachusetts. He started working by providing dental care in 22 nursing homes throughout the state. He also worked in 2 private practices during his time in Massachusetts where he continued to master his skills. All during this time, his dream of returning home to Tompkins County grew. Now he is back. His passion, skill and love for his work are evident from the first time that he meets a new patient.
In his spare time, Dr. Raggi enjoys playing soccer, softball, basketball, and golf. He also loves rooting for his favorite sports teams; The Buffalo Bills and Sabers, Albany and Syracuse basketball as well as local sports such as Cornell Hockey.

When not doing something sports related he spends most of his free time with his wife, family, friends, and dog Tucker.
