Patients must be an established Hometown Health Center patient or have a referral from your general dentist within Schenectady County.

Emergency Appointments

We realize that tooth pain can hinder your day. We have urgent care appointments every day.
Please call 518-370-1441.

Pediatrics

Our dental outreach team visits 17 schools across Schenectady County in a program highly acclaimed by the Schenectady City School District. Our hygienists bring prevention dentistry to your child right at school! They provide cleanings, fluoride, and sealants to your child during the school day. If the hygienist notices that further treatment is needed, you can bring your child into our clinic with our dentists. Your child may qualify for a new treatment called silver diamide fluoride, which is a medicine placed on the tooth by the dentist to stop the decay from growing. The treatment is painless and keeps the dental experience positive.
