While in Lexington Dr. Mencarelli met his wife and they started building their family. The Mencarellis decided to make the tri-state area their home due to the multitude of activities, proximity to many of their closest friends, and it is a middle ground to family they have all around the country.

Outside of practicing oral surgery, Dr. Mencarelli enjoys spending time with family and friends. As a family man, his top priority is being a dad to his growing children and a husband to his wife.
