Fred S. Maron, DMD

Dr. Maron's passion for dentistry and commitment to excellence are well-known to both patients and colleagues in the community. He considers his staff and patients to be an extended famly. New patients are amazed at the warmth and caring shown to them by the staff and doctor. When Dr. Maron calls patients to see how they are doing after a difficult procedure, they commonly remark that no doctor has ever called them at night or on a weekend to check on them.

Dr. Maron also believes that giving patients adequate time is very important. Some people hate going to the dentist. Just sitting in a dental chair is traumatic for many of them. Dr. Maron is very patient and understanding of the needs of these patients. Years later they remind him of how fearful they once were in being treated in the dental office and how comfortable they are now in coming.

Dr. Maron has practiced general dentistry in his current Poughkeepsie, New York location for more than 40 years. He has completed advanced training in all aspects of dental treatment, including Invisalign® orthodontics and dental sleep medicine. Dr. Maron has taught dental residents at Montefiore Hospital and published dental articles. He participates regularly in continuing education and reads numerous dental journals to stay up-to-date with current techniques and materials.
