Dr. Thomas Abele has been practicing dentistry at Delmar Dental Medicine for more than 40 years. In addition to being a general practitioner, his emphasis is on oral surgery, dental implants, reconstructive surgery, and endodontics, providing root canal treatment.
His goal is to provide his patients with the very best dental care, so that each may achieve optimal health throughout their lifetimes.
Dr. Abele has the designations of DMD, (Doctor of Dental Medicine) and FAGD (Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry).
The Academy of General Dentistry is a leading educator of general dentists. All AGD members must remain current with advances in the field of dentistry to provide quality patient treatment. "A general dentist who is a "Fellow" in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) has been recognized by other general dentists as a leader and exemplifies to other dentists the importance of quality continuing dental education. To earn the FAGD, a dentist must complete a minimum of 500 continuing dental education credit hours, pass a comprehensive exam and have been an AGD member for three continuous years".
Dr. Abele provides gentle dental care to patients of all ages. He is certified in Dental External Conscious Sedation in New York State. Sedation dentistry allows patients to safely be sedated so they can receive the treatment they need or want, in a comfortable and relaxed environment. Exam rooms are equipped with TVs and massage chairs.
Because of Dr. Abele's level of skill, and pain free, relaxing approach, his patients come from as far away as
Florida for general dentistry, dental implants, restorative and cosmetic services, and oral surgery.
The Delmar Dental Medicine staff consists of:
- Our very experienced and friendly front desk staff. Each helps patients schedule appointments, file insurance claims, and make financial arrangements. Our office manager has been with us for more than 15 years.
- Our three Registered Dental Hygienists. Each has been with Delmar Dental Medicine for several years, one for more than 20. We often find that patients have their "favorite" hygienist they like to see each time they come in for a cleaning. Our hygienists are responsible for cleanings, taking x-rays, performing cosmetic bleaching and periodontal charting, and many periodontal procedures.
- Our Dental Assistants. Our two dental assistants are both New York State certified and have been with us for 8-25 years. They are extremely qualified and proficiently perform a countless number of duties to help the patients and doctor have a more relaxed and efficient visit. They are an intricate part of the staff.
- The entire staff operates as a team and takes great pride in each member's training and capabilities.
