Dr.David Kavanagh, D.D.S

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

"I have never liked going to a dentist,but clifton park dentistry is always a pleasant experience. The staff is very friendly and dr Cavanaugh is awesome...they never hassle you fir payments at checking out..I found it embarrassing when the receptionist yells out your total bill in front of everyone at other offices...you won't find that here."
