We wish to extend a warm welcome to those who already attend the practice and to others who are interested in knowing more about us.
We take pride in the high quality of our dentistry and do our best to make your visit a pleasant experience; we aim to treat every patient in a friendly and professional manner. We offer a variety of services at our practice in a caring and relaxing environment.
We would like to offer our patients the best possible advice and treatment, which is why Dr. Tabone and his team regularly attend post-graduate and professional development courses so that we may continually offer you the latest and safest advances in the field of dentistry: modern dental technology with traditional standards. We are dedicated to diagnosis and encourage preventive techniques, helping you to understand how to maintain the health of your mouth and keep it free of tooth decay and gum disease.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Tabone will discuss with you all treatment options and recommendations to help you make an informed decision, leaving the final decision firmly with you, while our Office Manager will present costs before the treatment is started. Our staff will always make time for you; we are always aware that you have chosen our office because you want and deserve the very best treatment, care, and service.
The current practice was established at its present site in 2001 in what was once a stately single-family home in downtown Auburn NY, dating back to the late 1860's. It represents the second generation of dental practice that has occupied the same site continually for over 30 years.
Dr. Anthony J. Tabone was born and raised in Auburn, and received a dual bachelor's degree from the State University of New York at Binghamton in 1992. He completed his dental training at the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, qualifying with the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1996, and came back to his hometown to practice as an associate before opening his current practice.
Professionally, Dr. Tabone is involved with many organizations including the American Dental Association, the New York State Dental Association, and the Seventh District Dental Society. Since 1999, he has been on the medical staff at Auburn Memorial Hospital with full hospital privileges, and is the chief dentist at the Finger Lakes Center For Living, where he provides treatment for geriatric patients. In addition to being licensed in New York State, Dr. Tabone obtained a license to practice dentistry in the State of Colorado in 2003 and enjoys active licensure in both states. His practice has been a proud member of the Better Business Bureau of Upstate New York since 2006.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Tabone enjoys traveling extensively, sports, spending time with his family and friends, and caring for the many stray and unwanted cats he has taken in. His love for these animals has inspired his involvement in feral cat rescue and placement programs with area veterinarians and animal humane organizations.
Dr. Tabone and his staff have over 100 years of combined experience in the dental field, insuring that your dental experience with us will be in the most energetic, knowledgeable, and competent hands possible. Not only do we have the experience to present all your options, we have the skill to create the results. An important fact to bear in mind is "What you have been given is not always what you have to settle for." We are confident we can improve your smile, and create for you a state of oral well-being to last a lifetime.
