Patient Testimonials

  • "Northport Family Dental provides a very welcoming and professional staff with state of the art technology at their fingertips. On my very first visit as a new patient I was made to feel welcome and comfortable in the clean, pleasant and organized waiting area and treatment room."

  • "This was my first visit and I was immediately impressed by the facility and the professionalism of the staff. I was further impressed by the attention to detail, explanations and information given by the Doctor about the available treatments and my options. Dental treatment is not high on my list of things I look forward to but this was a rewarding and relatively painless experience."

  • "My family and I have been going to Northport Dental for the past 20 years and we love it. Dr. Rubin is awesome and his staff of hygienists, assistants and administrators are all so nice and caring and professional. Dr. Rubin's office is total state of the art - with all the latest high-tech equipment and comfortable atmosphere. We've recommended this office to many friends who are all very happy."

  • "The staff was terrific...very friendly and welcoming. Everything went like clockwork. I can't think of an experience with a dentist that was as reassuring. Doctor Rubin was really something. He was approachable and easy to converse with. The technology and expertise was something to behold."

At what age do you recommend bringing my child to the dentist?

Great question, and certainly potentially confusing based on what you may read or hear from other people. The best age to take your child to the dentist is the age when your child will benefit the most. Advising and educating parents and their children is appropriate at all ages, including during pregnancy. The mothers’ periodontal health is often dictated by other changes going on in her body. Recognition and early treatment yields health benefits to both mother and child.

After many years of providing dental care to children and adolescents, Northport Family Dental would suggest the first checkup and cleaning for your child around age 4. It’s a reasonable developmental marker to enable your child to fully benefit.

It can be helpful to have your younger child accompany you or an older sibling to their check-up visit. They can watch a fun instructional video and become familiar with our office environment. The appropriate behavioral cues are learned simply by observation, setting the stage for their “Big Day” when they’re ready to participate fully. Remembering where the Prize Box never seems to be an issue.

Northport Family Dental has been caring for families for over 30 years.

If there is a concern or perceived need for treatment, call our office and arrange to speak to either Dr. Rubin or Dr. Quinn. Different things happen at every age and there are no stupid questions.
