Meet Dr. Kavanagh

Where did you grow up and what brought you here?

Lake Ronkonkoma, NY. I moved away for dental school and decided to return to my home state.

What do you love most about this area?

I love the four seasons, outdoor activities, professional sports that aren’t far away. I also love the American history.

What is your philosophy of care? I treat patients as if they were part of my family.

What is a quote you strive to live by? It’s not how others make us feel that is the most important in life but rather how we make others feel.

What do you wish you could tell every patient and why? I genuinely care about your overall health. I love what I do. Its very satisfying to take care of people and make them feel good.

If you could tell patients to do something (and they actually would), what would it be? Take care of yourself.

Why did you decide to become a dentist? I worked in a hospital as a medic so medicine and problem solving interested me.

Reviews & Testimonials

"They got me in right away as a new patient when I really needed to be seen. They were able to resolve my problem within 2 days. Unheard of from every other dentist I have been to. 5 stars 🌟"



"Murad and Dr K were fantastic. The receptionist was outstanding as well. Such customer service treatment is lost in many practices, but NoT this one. Murad is a natural with people. And he knows his stuff. Dr K is a keeper. He is thorough , but very personable as well. This was the best experience I had in years!"



"Great dental practice. Nice Staff. Professional. Convenient."



"They really listened to my concerns about my teeth and we came up with a plan that wasn’t going to break the bank."



"I always feared going to the dentist until I started going to Clifton Park Family Dentistry. They are excellent. They know how to make you feel comfortable and at ease. The doctors, hygienists and all the staff treat you very professional as well as respectful. I'm glad I found a dentistry I feel good about and don't fear going to my appointments. Thank you!"
