Our Doctors

Leonard Taddei, D.M.D.

Dr. Len Taddei was born and raised in Connecticut, coming to Rhode Island to attend and graduate from Providence College with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. He earned his D.M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania and immediately returned to Rhode Island, where he served for three years as a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy Dental Corps. While stationed there, his Providence College connection helped to result in his remaining in Newport to join the dental practice of fellow alumni, Dr. Gerry Rogers. Following Dr. Roger’s retirement, Dr. Taddei moved the practice to its present location on Aquidneck Avenue where it has remained since 1994. Besides his dental practice and maintaining active involvement in the community, Dr. Taddei enjoys traveling with his wife Kathleen and their three daughters, as well as cycling the roads and backroads of the area.
