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."

Preventative Dentistry

Preventive Dentistry in Northport, NY

Like most things health-related, it’s easier, safer, and more cost-effective to prevent a health issue rather than diagnose and treat it—especially if the problem can become chronic.

At Northport Family Dental, we take practicing prevention seriously. We offer all the dental services you and your family need to stay miles ahead of tooth decay, gingivitis, and cavities. 

Healthy teeth and gums don’t just happen out of nowhere; they take a lot of diligence and care! Brushing and flossing daily, along with regular dental check-ups and teeth exams, can give you the best chance of never having to worry about gum disease or dental pain. Dr. Jeffrey S. Rubin and Dr. Olivia Quinn take prevention seriously and promote it heavily to our Northport patients. 

Dental Prevention Keeps Your General Health Up

A healthy mouth links to your general body well-being. There’s no end to studies that point to the link between your oral health and your body’s health. Diseases like diabetes, heart disease, pregnancy complications, strokes, and more are linked with oral infections.

Thorough Dental Exams

While some places often recommend dental check-ups every six months, your dentist may recommend more frequent cleanings in order to prevent issues like gum disease or tooth decay. Monitoring existing dental conditions is part of your dental prevention process. 

During your dental check-up at our Northport dental office, we include comprehensive exams and evaluation of your mouth and surrounding areas. 

Your Northport dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums and look for any abnormalities. They will check to examine your gums and look for signs of periodontal disease. We may need to take x-rays for more precise details of your oral structure that you can't normally view visually. During your dental check-up, we may use an intraoral camera that allows patients to see precisely what the dentist is seeing. Sometimes it’s beneficial for patients to visually see any oral issues or concerns with their own eyes. 

During your exam, we will also screen for oral cancer, sleep apnea, and teeth grinding disorders. 

Preventive Dentistry for the Whole Family

Brushing and flossing daily will help prevent many oral health issues; only a dental hygienist can entirely remove the build-up of plaque and tartar that will always occur. We want to keep your entire family as healthy and happy as possible.

Your dental hygienist will use specialized dental instruments that can clean your teeth and gums in a way your toothbrush and floss can’t. Without consistent oral treatment, you can be susceptible to gum disease, which can, over time, lead to tooth loss. 

Our experienced dental team is here to help answer questions, demonstrate proper brushing techniques, and provide tips to help you achieve oral health success.
