Gio Iuculano, DDS

Dr. Gio Iuculano attended the University of Maryland prior to graduating from the University of Maryland Dental School in 1998. His post graduate education includes Hornbrook Group Ultimate Occlusion Program, Great Lakes Education Center CEREC Integration, and Dentistry by Design Technology meets Artistry. Dr. Gio’s post graduate education most recent professional certifications and specialties include training in: bites in malalignments, problems with TMJ’s, patients with muscle pains in the head and neck, advanced airway management and dental solutions for sleep apnea and craniofacial pain. Dr. Gio is most enthusiastic about his work with solutions for sleep apnea, as he believes that his work will soon be known as the cure for sleep apnea. In the interim, the positive impact his work has made on his patients and their family’s lives keeps Dr. Gio thirsty for as much continuing education as he can possibly fit in to his very full patient schedule.

When asked why they keep coming back to see Dr. Gio, the most frequent answer is, “He gives us an outline of the work that needs to be done in an honest and straightforward manner and treats us like we are highly intelligent and want to be informed about all aspects of our dental care.”

Dr. Gio and his beautiful wife Nanci have two twin sons, Jack and Colin.

Frank Mitchell, DDS

Originally from the Washington, D.C. suburbs, Frank settled in Allegany County with his wife, Frostburg native Cathy Schutz Mitchell, in 1980. He has since practiced full-time dentistry and enjoyed the peacefulness of the area. Cathy and Frank have one son, Brian, who attended George Washington University and is living in Raleigh, NC with his wife Yelena and their daughter Victoria.

Frank is a self-trained artist who has been oil painting steadily for the past 15 years.

“I believe artists represent the essence of human existence at a given point along the time scale and for a given cultural context. There are certain common features that exist, repeat, and seem valid in defining what is human. I try to reach this ground through study of ancient as well as modern cultures. I have tried to remain unschooled and primitive in my approach.

My primary goal is to produce artwork that interacts with the viewer. Hopefully my work has a kinetic energy and enigmatic quality that continues to engage.”

Frank produced a series of paintings based on a visit to Florence, Italy and a series based on the Western Maryland region. Both are intended to convey the feeling of everyday life and people portrayed in simple terms.

Frank has exhibited at the U.S. Consulate in Florence, Italy between 2002-2005. His works have also been shown at the Benjamin Gallery in Hagerstown, MD, the Saville Gallery, The C. William Gilchrist Museum of the Arts, and Graphicus Atelier in Cumberland, MD.
