Dr. Richard DelVecchio was born and raised in Connecticut, growing up outside Hartford in Vernon where his parents both still reside. Dr. DelVecchio and his three siblings grew up with a strong appreciation for dentistry as their father owned a successful Periodontal practice.

After obtaining his BAS in Biology and Psychology from the University of Delaware, Richard went on to receive his Dental Degree from NYU where he was involved in numerous leadership roles including Class President, the Student Ethics Board, as well as the Student Council. After graduation, Dr. DelVecchio completed a two-year General Practice Residency at St. Marys Hospital, an affiliate of Yale, where he gained valuable experience in all facets of dentistry as well as Operating and Emergency Room rotations.

Dr. DelVecchio has been a continued volunteer in numerous dental outreach programs including Give Kids a Smile and the annual Mission of Mercy free annual dental clinics throughout Connecticut. He has also had the privilege of serving as the Dental Director of the New Haven School Smile program since its inception in June 2015.

In his free time, Richard enjoys spending time with his wife, parents, siblings, nieces, nephews and his three dogs, as well as keeping active by running, swimming, playing golf or tennis and jet skiing. He also loves to read, travel, and fulfill his love of history by visiting museums. Dr. DelVecchio is very excited to be joining the Colchester Team and will continue to build relationships based on trust, community, and premier care already established by Dr. Batchelder. He looks forward to meeting all our wonderful patients here at Life Long Dental Care and taking care of all of your dental needs!

Everyone at the office were super friendly and helpful at this dental office. Kim was very thorough and informative during the whole teeth cleaning process. Kim and Dr Lee answered all my questions and concerns. If you need to find a dental office this is worth going to! They even close at 7 on Tuesdays, super late for a doctor's office!

When I had an emergency broken tooth they were able to see me quickly and worked with my schedule. Once they explained the problem to me, they were able to do most of the repair right away and schedule the follow up appointment at a convenient day and time that also worked with my crazy schedule. Very professional and convenient! Thanks

Dr. Lee is a compassionate dentist. While he is working on you he will frequently ask "are you ok". He strives for perfection while working on your teeth. If he is not totally satisfied, he will try a different method to reach his desired goal.

Dr. Richard Lee of Life Long Dental Care is excellent. I highly recommend him and the Life Long Dental Care team. An old crown broke off this morning. Thanks to a cancellation, I was able to see Dr. Lee this afternoon and within 90 minutes walked out with a temporary crown and a return date of 3 weeks for the permanent crown. Dr. Lee has an exceptional way of proceeding. He announces each step of the treatment, explains why he is taking each step, and answers any question with clarity in a very pleasant manner. He thanks his assistants for their work. This smart young dentist, an NYR graduate, is my choice "life long."
