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
will let patients see into their own mouths. This will greatly aid
us in discussing helping you understand your unique health issues and
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.
