Things to Look For When Choosing a Dental Office

Ideally, on your first appointment to a new dental office, you should be scheduled with an appointment to see the dentist ... not a cleaning appointment during which the dentist stops in for a quick check..

“My father was a practicing dentist, and when I was a high-school student he exposed me to experiences in the field of dentistry. I was fortunate to learn a great deal about dentistry from him. I worked as a lab technician during the summer, and I also sat in on consultations he had with administrators about his office. I became very knowledgeable and enamored with the profession of dentistry.

“What attracted me to dentistry was that I felt it would be a profession that would challenge and engross me for my whole life, and I have found to my ultimate satisfaction that it has been and continues to be so. In a profession that changes at lightning speed, it is a challenge and a privilege to remain at the forefront of dentistry. I enjoy dealing with the differing personalities of my patients, which keeps me sharp as the years go by, both in terms of technique and human interaction. I have the knowledge and skill to provide comprehensive care to all who want a great dental experience.

“I aim to give to my patients a combination of cutting-edge skills and technology as well as an incredibly skilled and well-trained staff. I also bring the experience and maturity to listen to my patients and to give them the solutions that will solve their problems.”

Dr. Morrison leads an extremely physically active lifestyle: He runs four miles twice a week, plays an hour and a half of racquetball twice a week and works out using a bike or an elliptical the other days. His two greatest passions are windsurfing and skiing.

Residency: General Dentistry, Stratton VA Medical Center, Albany, NY

“I chose dentistry because I knew it would be a career that I would enjoy. Having spent years around the office growing up, I felt comfortable in knowing what would be involved. I enjoy pretty much everything about dentistry. I love helping patients reach their goals. I enjoy the variety of day-to-day practice, how every patient, mouth and tooth provides its own unique set of problems and solutions.

“I think the most important aspect of patient interaction in our office is caring for them as individuals. Our philosophy of care revolves around a sense of responsibility to our patients. Our role in their care starts from giving them a picture of their oral health and explaining to them what can be done. It is up to individual patients to decide which pathway they want to choose. We are here to guide them, help them and follow through, but treatment decisions truly belong to the patient.

“I hope to give my patients respect for their emotions, whether they be fear, excitement or nervousness, along with respect for their expectations, which may simply be a desire to smile. Understanding all of these starts with spending time with patients and listening to them. Every patient is different and deserves to be treated individually.”

In his free time, Dr. Morrison enjoys landscape and travel photography. All of the photography on the walls in the office are from his portfolio. He is also very involved philanthropically in the Jewish community, both in the Capital District (Albany and surrounding area) and nationally. He is on the Board of Governors for our local Jewish Federation, chairman of the Young Leadership division and on the National Young Leadership Cabinet for Jewish Federations of North America.
