Drs. Joseph and Gabrielle Ramellini met at UMDNJ-New Jersey Dental School (now Rutgers School of Dental Medicine) in 1995. They were married at Gabrielle’s mother’s bed and breakfast in Asheville before their senior year. Her mother owned Abbington Green Bed and Breakfast in the historic Montford District for 21 years.
They both received a Health Professions Scholarship from the US Air Force and were also accepted into the competitive one-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. After serving two more years at Cannon Air Force Base in Clovis, New Mexico they decided to return to the green of the East Coast and settled in a practice in rural southern Maryland for 14 years.
Though they enjoyed their time in Maryland and started their family there with their three children, Adrianna, Christian, and Isabella, as well as their dog, Boomer, they always wished they lived in the mountains of western North Carolina. You only live once, so in 2015 they began searching for practices, and in 2016, they found Dr. Darryl Nabors in Clyde, North Carolina. Dr. Nabors was getting ready to retire and was looking for experienced dentists to take over his unique practice. It was a great match and in August of 2016, the Ramellinis made the big move.
Drs. Joseph and Gabrielle Ramellini feel very fortunate to have found the wonderful practice and patients of Dr. Nabors. Ironically, Gabrielle’s mother was already a patient here!
Gabrielle and Joseph enjoy practicing all facets of dental care in a truly comprehensive manner. They continually exceed continuing education requirements in their quest to provide their patients with the most up-to-date treatment modern dentistry has to offer. They are both members of the International Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Toxicology, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Dental Association.
Dr. Gabrielle Ramellini completed a Mastery Program for Dental Sleep Medicine and became a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine in October 2020. She also completed the Tufts Dental Sleep Medicine Mini-Residency in 2021 and is the first and only Diplomate for Dental Sleep Medicine in Haywood County.
When not at work, Dr. Gabrielle Ramellini enjoys spending time with their three children, gardening, cooking, skiing, and SCUBA diving. Dr. Joseph Ramellini enjoys training with his two older children in the martial art of Han Mu Do and spending time with his family outdoors, especially skiing and more recently, SCUBA diving. He also likes to read, run, bike, and swim.
