Dr. Charles Azzaretti
Charles Azzaretti has been practicing dentistry in Mount Kisco in Westchester County since 1989. He is a dentist who “gets it” – that the practice of dentistry is a personal interaction, a relationship. With 33 years of experience Dr. Azzaretti understands that patients don’t come to a dental office for procedures – they come for dental care. They come for the simplest most effective treatments that meet their needs. They come for counsel as to treatment decisions for themselves or loved ones: what to do for an aged parent with a failing dentition, how to take care of a handicapped child that might have a toothache, whether a cosmetic treatment plan is in your best interest… These concerns are unique to each person. The dentistry is important but the focus on the right dentistry for each patient is the relationship.
Dr. Azzaretti’s years of post graduate education and extensive continuing education over three decades mean that he has developed a deep base of experience and knowledge in clinical care. Pain and anxiety are often foremost in patient’s minds when dental care is necessary. As a board certified dental anesthesiologist (ADBA 1996) Dr. Azzaretti is very focused on the proper management of pain and anxiety associated with dental treatment.
His longstanding commitment to continuing education in dental procedure and knowledge was recognized when he passed an extensive examination to become a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD 2009).
Dr. Azzaretti has developed his practice in a way that focuses on one goal – to resolve your dental issues efficiently and effectively. Appointments are structured so that there is ample time to diagnose any dental need and also to understand ancillary health issues and discuss associated concerns such as dental anxiety/phobia, effects of proposed treatments on appearance, need for antibiotic coverage or post treatment pain medication, etc. Our calm office environment with a core staff that has been with the practice for over 20 years helps facilitate these goals. Some problems are more extensive and need to be staged – from the more immediate/emergency need to the longer-term permanent solution. Whatever the scale of your need our focus is on the right dentistry for each patient.
