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."

Historical

Northport Family Dental is the current occupant of the Captain Henry Frank Smith house, built in 1890. It had been previously owned by Richard Gildersleeve . Captain Smith married Sarah Gildersleeve in 1870. Captain Smith sailed the "Helen A. Brown", a L.I. Sound packet as well as other boats, most owned by Jesse Carll of the Carll shipyards.

In 1906, it was purchased by Dr. Frank Quackenbush, who was the leading Dentist in Northport. He opened offices in 1898 and was married to Susan Sammis in 1904. He was President of the Northport School Board and it was through his efforts that 3 districts; Eatons Neck, Northport and East Northport were united into 1 district in 1922. 

The building was converted to offices in 1978 and the Fort Salonga Travel Agency occupied the building for many years. Dr. Rubin purchased the property in 1996 and moved his existing Northport dental practice into 265 Main in 1998. An 1100 square foot first floor addition wraps around the original footprint. Although any significant interior architectural details were removed when the building was commercialized, Dr. Rubin restored and renovated with the goal of reflecting turn-of-the-century old world craftsmanship.

As you walk through the office, from front to back, you are literally walking through time. The Reception Area has been restored to reflect a homes' parlour of the time. As you enter the clinical area, you arrive back to the present day and to 21st Century Dentistry.
