Our History

Rocky Creek Dental Care came about, because Chicago was too cold.

Well, maybe not exactly.

Dr. John Piccione moved to the Greenville area with his wife, Kathy, and children, who had suffered those cold winters one too many times. They moved to be closer to Kathy’s parents in Fountain Inn, and Dr. Piccione found and bought the forty-year-old practice from the retiring Dr. Honeycutt on East Washington Street in downtown Greenville. Dr. Piccione and his wife have three children. When he isn’t working on teeth, he is known for his passion for cooking. Back in Chicago, he even had the chance to cook for Frank Sinatra! Ten years after moving to the Upstate, a dental office near his home on the east side of town came on the market. Dr. Piccione had the vision to open the second location and bring in a partner, giving them the ability to care for patients in both the downtown and eastside communities as a team.

Dr. Margaret Roth was that partner. A native of Lexington, SC, Dr. Roth earned her degree at the Medical University of SC in Charleston and chose to further her training in cosmetics and surgical procedures by completing a general practice residency in Columbia. Dr. Roth met Dr. Piccione with the help of a dental sales representative and was immediately impressed with his commitment to treating patients with compassion and respect, using the Golden Rule.

Dr. Roth and her family love to spend time together and embark on many adventures. She and her husband, Jeff, have three girls, and they had all three girls on snow and water skis before they started kindergarten. She and Jeff enjoy running and have even completed half marathons.

As Dr. Piccione and Dr. Roth grew the practice, they found they needed additional help treating patients and wanted to offer patients a practice with the convenience of being open five days a week. Dr. Ryan Stenvall joined the practice in 2015. This allowed the practice to expand hours and services. Dr. Stenvall is a Clemson graduate, and a 2012 New Jersey Dental School graduate. He has advanced training in restorative cosmetic dentistry, surgical procedures, and root canal treatment. Dr. Stenvall and his wife Rachel are glad to be back in the upstate and welcomed a baby girl into their family recently.

Community Involvement

As a practice we are very grateful to be a part of this community and do everything we can to give back. Starting several years ago, with assistance from our patients, this team began an annual community project to lend support to local causes.Our endeavors have ranged from canned food drives for food shelters to school supplies for the GHS Children’s Hospital.

Feel free to check out some of our past community projects:

2016 – Support Our Troops

In 2016, we began sponsoring many projects throughout the year. One of our favorites was collecting donations for the Support Our Troops organization. For every $5 collected, we donated a dental care package. We were able to send over 200 packages, as well as a generous donation.

2015 – Broken Wing Farm

Our 2015 Community Project was supporting Broken Wing Farm, a twelve-acre teaching farm located in Honea Path and operated by one of our wonderful patients, Bill Welch. This non-profit organization is dedicated to helping adults with autism and others with developmental delays by creating a safe and fun environment for them to grow and sell produce. Thanks to our many wonderful patients, we collected farming tools and donations exceeding $1200 and helped the farm complete their greenhouse. We have the most generous and awesome patients!

2014 – McCall Hospice House

Early in 2014, Dr. Piccione’s mother-in-law, Anne Hughes, became a patient at the McCall Hospice House. The Piccione family’s experience with that illness led us to choose them as our 2014 Community Project. Financial resources to build and operate a hospice house are limited. With the support of our patients through a donation in kind, as well as donations for a “Whiten Your Teeth Saturday” and donations from the proceeds of our whitening refills this summer, Rocky Creek raised over $3200.
