I was a very anxious patient with gum issues that needed surgery and Dr. Kesselman & Dr. Gelbart got me through surgery and a crown beautifully. I am no longer nervous to come to the dentist! What a great group of people.

This office staff is cheerful and considerate. The dental hygienist, Jackie, is friendly and professional with the greatest touch. She took the time to explain the procedure and we even laughed a little. Dr. Gelbart was relaxed and professional as well. The staff seems to be a well-knit team that genuinely cares about the patients.

Michael Gelbart is a general dentist with Family Dental Group. He has been in practice over 20 years. He is knowledgeable in implantology. He is very thorough, and his staff is knowledgeable. I have been a patient of his for over 15 years and am very comfortable with the treatment he provides. I would recommend him.

It has been at least a month now since I've had the benefit of my new implants, and with this test of time I am happy to report that I'm an exceedingly happy client. From the day the 2 molar crowns were placed they felt completely natural in my mouth and the fit was so good there was none of the discomfort I anticipated having to adjust to. They look great and feel great.
Dr. Gelbart went through the effort and extra time, at his inconvenience, to ensure only the best results.
All the work that went behind making those crowns possible - from extraction to posts, he executed with seeming effortlessness and very reassuring perfection and gentleness. That he did all this for the best prices I could find in the Hudson Valley is a testament to the altruistic spirit of giving he brings to his work.
I highly recommend Dr. Gelbart and his friendly and competent team.

The staff seems very thorough and efficient. Relative to other dentists, there's a bit less discomfort than I've experienced with some others. The dentist and the rest of the staff are friendly, and understand the fact that you can't really make small talk with their hands in your mouth. When I had my fillings, it was a pleasant experience (at least as far as getting fillings CAN be)-they played music and offered to turn on the television to keep my mind off of whatever they were doing. They seem to be a bit busy though, and it can be difficult to make appointments that are convenient for you sometimes, but overall I've had a positive experience with this place.

Dr. Gelbart did my braces as well as my brother's. The office was always impeccably clean and all of the staff members are energetic and engaging. The atmosphere is very kid-friendly, but there are also many adult patients. There was never more than a 15 minute wait to be seated in the chair and every visit was quick. The results were perfect and I have never spoken with anyone who had a bad experience with Dr. Gelbart!

I was in Sales in my younger years, so I know when I'm being "pitched." That being said, my visit to Family Dentistry was very disappointing. I've now spoken to others who seem to share a similar experience. Let me explain.

My appointment for a dental cleaning was followed by an examination with the dentist. From the moment you see the dental hygienist, however, I noticed a subtle "sales-oriented" approach that becomes more and more pronounced as things proceed. In short, the dental hygienist spent significantly more time measuring the plaque on my teeth than cleaning it. This seemed a bit unusual since I've had many dental cleanings over the last 40+ years (and these always require periodic pauses where I rinse my mouth with the adjacent self-filling water cup). Again, at Family Dentistry, the dental hygienist spent more time measuring than cleaning. She also told me several times that I was a "good candidate" for periodontal maintenance.

Unfortunately, Family Dentistry seems far too motivated in "selling" you additional dental services. They will even tell you "..we're very big on periodontal maintenance here." This procedure, however, requires another visit for a periodontal cleaning (which is not fully covered by insurance) -- but I would not have been opposed to having an extra periodontal cleaning had the initial cleaning been more than mediocre and cursory. I went to Family Dental for a dental cleaning. Not a "pre-sell" for other services.

After my 30 minute "cleaning," I was also seen by the dentist who reinforced the need for periodontal maintenance. But it seems that most people are referred for this service. I now know several other people who have periodontal maintenance done at Family Dentistry (which apparently requires the application of antibiotics into the gums). In addition, Family Dental has also been known to recommend a crown rather than a filling -- but sometimes a less costly filling will do quite nicely when a crown is recommended. In short, crowns are considerably more expensive. Although insurance usually covers only 50% of the cost, you won't know this until after the crown procedure is completed and insurance is billed.

When I ultimately voiced my concerns, I was actually told that Family Dentistry was now owned by a corporation, and the corporate office had recently mandated that all dental cleanings should be reduced to 30 minutes. I was surprised by this. I've never had a cleaning that was less than 45 minutes to an hour (or longer). A thorough cleaning will take that long. All in all, my teeth were not properly cleaned and after talking with others who go to Family Dentistry, many have commented that they also didn't feel that same "just-cleaned" feeling that they've experienced after previous visits with other dentists.

Bottom line, Family Dentistry has an enormous financial overhead. They have high rent offices located in highly visible shopping center frontages. They also conduct a lot of expensive advertising and have a very large staff of employees. These things cost money. A lot of money. Unfortunately, a large overhead also means they need to obtain significant patient revenue before they break-even.

That being said, a subtle sales-oriented approach does exist at Family Dentistry. You will even notice that they may try to sell you a "special" $10.00 bottle of mouthwash when you leave. After all, Family Dentistry has to break-even before they make a profit. And the new corporate owners are looking for a profit.

I have recommended this to friends, and several have signed up as a result. I recommend in particular Dr.G for his speedy, kind and very competent dentistry. He's also fun, which can be important when you are stuck in a chair dealing with teeth and gums that behave badly - as mine sometimes do. On an important sidenote - Dr. G is very patient and compassionate with the elderly, which I found out when I referred a friend's mom to him.

I was 15 minutes late and they still took me in with no attitude. They didn't rush me out, either. Very friendly people. I was very grateful.
