Dr. Charles J. DiCosimo III

“Being an orthodontist is an amazingly rewarding profession! I’m afforded a unique opportunity to work with patients from all walks of life over an average of two years under our care. I learn so much from these patients as they become an integral part of our orthodontic family. I love seeing how their smile, and more importantly, the individual, blossoms over this time frame. At Raineri and DiCosimo Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on providing a fun, safe, and family-centered environment and I’m grateful to be a part of so many amazing patient’s lives.”

Dr. DiCosimo was born and raised in Manlius, NY and is a graduate of Fayetteville-Manlius High School. He attended the University of Rochester for his undergraduate education, obtaining his Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with distinction. He went on to study dentistry at the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine. In 2015, he received his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree graduating Magna Cum Laude. He remained at Boston University for an additional three years while completing his Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics specialty program, graduating in the spring of 2018 with a Master of Science in Dentistry (MSD)/Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (CAGS) degree. He is a current member of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), American Dental Association (ADA), New York State Dental Association (NYSDA), and the Fifth District Dental Society.

Dr. DiCosimo has been around the profession of dentistry his whole life as his parents operated an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery practice in Syracuse, NY for forty years. He was able to spend time working in their practice as well as shadowing various other dental professionals in the area. In his time with local orthodontists, Dr. DiCosimo observed the natural bond these orthodontists had with their patients, how much they enjoyed providing treatment to their patients, and how these patients genuinely enjoyed their visit to the orthodontic office. These experiences helped seal the deal for Dr. DiCosimo in pursuing orthodontics as a career.

In his spare time, Dr. DiCosimo enjoys spending time with his family, his wife Alissa, and his chihuahua Louie. He is also an avid Buffalo Bills and Syracuse University sports fan! He is happy to be back in Central New York, providing excellent orthodontic care to this amazing community.
