Dr. Charles Mistretta

Dear Colleagues:


Greetings to all of you. I sincerely hope that you are enjoying your summer and that all is well. There are some upcoming events as well as a change in our meeting schedule that I would like to share with you.


Our September general meeting will not be held this year due to scheduling conflicts with school openings, as well as the Jewish holy days. Our next general meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 16 at Bocelli Restaurant at 7 P.M. It will feature Dr. Steven S. Schwartz as our guest essayist on the subject of “Clinical Encounters in Pediatric Dentistry.” Come join us for an informational lecture as well as an exceptional dinner with your friends and colleagues. The lecture will award 2 CE credits, a great advantage toward your mandatory continuing education hours.


Due to the great success of last year’s event, Richmond County Dental Society (RCDS) will be having the second annual "Night at the Races" at Meadowlands Racetrack on Saturday, September 15, 2018 from 6:30 P.M. until 11:30 P.M. The cost is $50 per person for SDDS and RCDS members and one guest. The event will feature a buffet dinner as well as a three-hour premium open bar. The cost for each additional non-member guest is $75. Space is reserved for our group in the Skybox Suites overlooking the track in a most comfortable private venue. Please RSVP no later than August 27, 2018. Checks should be made out to Richmond County Dental Society and include your name as well as those of your guests. Please mail your remittance to:


Dr. Michael Costa

62 Hart Boulevard

Staten Island, New York 10301


For any further questions regarding this event you can contact Dr. Costa at (718) 442-3982 or (917) 589-8832. Come join us for an enjoyable and relaxing evening!


Our sincere thanks to Dr. Bryan Pieroni and RCDS President Dr. Michael Costa for organizing the RCDS annual golf outing, which was held at the New Jersey National Golf Club in Basking Ridge, New Jersey. Fortunately, the weather cooperated and all in attendance had a most enjoyable day. We are all looking forward to next year’s event.


May you all enjoy the rest of your summer, and I hope to see you at our upcoming meeting.



Respectfully yours, 

Charles J. Mistretta, DDS
