Family & Preventive Dentistry in Poughkeepsie
As a true family dental practice, we emphasize prevention whenever possible, and we educate our patients on proper oral hygiene. More importantly, we establish relationships of trust and understanding that extend well into adulthood. It’s Dr. Hamburg's goal to keep your teeth healthy so that you can enjoy a natural smile for a lifetime.
Simple preventive measures can often save you from the additional stress and expense of restorative dental treatments like crowns, fillings, and root canals. As your family dentists, Dr. Hamburg will recommend customized therapies designed for your unique needs. Fluoride treatments, dental sealants, mouthguards, and recommended dental products can go a long way toward the future health of your smile. Contact Hudson Valley Dental Arts today if you have any questions for our team, or if you’re ready to schedule an appointment. Our Poughkeepsie office is open to patients from Wappingers Falls, NY and surrounding areas.

Check-ups & Cleanings
Our team strongly recommends that younger and older patients alike attend an in-depth dental evaluation and cleaning every six months, or twice each year. The truth is, even the most diligent brushers and flossers can fall victim to dental problems that go unnoticed by an untrained eye. With 32 years of experience and counting under his belt, Dr. Hamburg can locate even the tiniest areas of concern and provide simple, effective treatment before they get out of hand. He will review each tooth, the gums, the bite, any existing restorations, and much more with the help of digital X-rays, intraoral cameras, and other advanced technology.
Bacteria-filled plaque and tartar is one of the biggest threats to healthy smiles, causing decay, periodontal disease, and other serious problems. Thankfully, routine professional cleanings with our staff can keep their presence in check. We’ll always leave your smile feeling nicely polished!
At Hudson Valley Dental Arts, we’re always happy to see the whole family! Our team has plenty of experience working with younger patients, and we’re proud to be the nicest dental office in the whole county. Dr. Hamburg will monitor their growing smiles with gentle check-ups, and protective services like dental sealants can reduce their risk of developing cavities over time. As far as we’re concerned, it’s never too early to get started on the path towards lifelong oral health.
Do you or your child participate in an athletic event where physical contact is a real possibility? It doesn’t matter if it’s a hard surface, a ball, or another player – if your smile isn’t adequately protected, very real damage could occur. Instead of relying on an uncomfortable, one-size-fits-all guard from the store, we recommend investing in a high-quality model from our Poughkeepsie practice! Dr. Hamburg will ensure a personalized, secure fit that still allows for clear talking and easy jaw movement.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that can be found in many water supplies and foods. Over the years, research has shown that the presence of fluoride in a patient’s diet often results in a significantly lower risk of cavities – this is because fluoride strengthens growing teeth and aids in the remineralization process of tooth enamel. If you or your child isn’t getting enough fluoride, Dr. Hamburg can provide additional applications to bolster oral health.
