About Us

Vision, Mission, and Values

Altamont General Dentistry’s organizational culture is defined by our vision (who we want to be), our mission (purpose) and our values (the principles by which we live). Everything we do should be guided by these three key elements of who we are. To this, we hold each other accountable.

Our Vision

To be a trusted leader in wellness-centered dentistry in our community.

Our Mission

To deliver the highest quality, state-of-the-art dental care and personal attention to all of our patients, resulting in healthy smiles across our region.

Our Values

We understand the relationship between a healthy mouth and a healthy body, and our approach to patient care encourages the prevention of dental disease and associated problems. We enjoy educating our patients about the overall importance of maintaining optimal home care techniques and proper dietary habits. We believe that the patient’s role in dental treatment is a collaborative one, working together with our dentists and dental hygienists.

Our dental hygienists, dental assistants, and administrative personnel are the backbone of the practice. Our staff takes a very active role in ensuring patient comfort and happiness. As a team, we are always happy to welcome new patients to the practice and to keep the practice moving forward.

We strongly believe that continuing dental education is an integral part of our ongoing professional development and our ability to provide the best dental care by offering a wide range of treatments and services. Our dentists, hygienists, and assistants regularly attend seminars and courses which directly benefit the way we are able to treat our patients.

Our office utilizes the strictest measures of sterilization and infection control, honors patient integrity and confidentiality, enjoys access to ever-evolving modern dental technology, and uses a reputable and experienced New York State dental laboratory.

We are active members of the Altamont community, and we regularly participate in philanthropic and volunteer efforts around the region. We regularly support the Community Caregivers, the Altamont Public Library, the statewide “Donated Dental Services” and “Give Kids a Smile” initiatives, the Northeast Regional Food Bank, and many other worthwhile charitable programs. We also participate in the state-assisted Medicaid program for underprivileged residents of the Village of Altamont.

Our Promise

We will take the required time to properly diagnose your immediate dental concerns, review your past medical and dental history, and create a treatment plan that provides for your optimal dental health. With your cooperation, we will complete a thorough comprehensive dental evaluation.
