Dr. Samartano named a fellow of international dentistry organization

Dr. Joseph Samartano of Seaside Drive was inducted as a fellow of the International College of Dentists at its 76th annual convocation held Oct. 7 in Philadelphia.

An honorary organization for the recognition of outstanding and meritorious service to dentistry, the college presented Samartano with a membership plaque, a gold lapel pin, and a gold key, which is symbolic of the fellowship for conspicuous service rendered to the art and science of dentistry.

Samartano, who retired this year, after a 35 year career, was the former chief of dentistry and oral surgery at St. Joseph Health Services of Rhode Island. He was in private practice from 1970 to 2005.
