About Dr. Tareq Khalifeh, DDS, DMD
Tareq Khalifeh (pronounced Tar-eck Kah-li-feh) is a warm and caring professional dedicated to quality care and patient education. As owner of Philmont Family Dentistry, he offers area patients all the benefits of a modern dental practice, equipped with effective diagnostic and patient-education technologies.

Dr. Khalifeh, who earned his DDS degree (Doctor of Dental Surgery) at New York University since the 1990’s. Prior to assuming ownership of Philmont Family Dentistry in 2004, he practiced at the GHI Clinic and Brunswick Dental in Albany, NY, was a resident in Albany Medical Center’s dental department. He currently serves as in the Columbia Opportunities Advisory Counsel.

Facilities and Technology
Our newly refurbished facility is housed in a former village home on Rte. 217. Comfortable and personal, the practice is a friendly place that many patients have come to for years and years. We use the latest digital radiology, which enables us to obtain higher quality images with fewer x-rays, and lets us transfer images electronically in referral situations. We have installed a digital imaging system that will let patients see into their own mouths. This will greatly aid us in discussing helping you understand your unique health issues and treatment options.

Our Role in the Community
Philmont Family Dentistry has a long history in Philmont and surrounding communities. Dr. Khalifeh continues the caring tradition of his predecessor, Dr. Robert Potrzeba, who founded the practice in 1975. We are particularly concerned that young children in our area receive appropriate dental care from an early age, and that their parents know the right steps to take to prevent oral health problems. We began working this year with Columbia Opportunities to bring education and dental screenings to the underserved youngsters through the region’s Head Start program We also support Hawthorne Valley School events each spring.
