Murphy Molargator Teaches Orange Kids Oral Hygiene

In early March, our hygienist Crystal and Murphy Molargator traveled just down the road to the Southern Connecticut Hebrew Academy in Orange to visit the preschool. With so many students from the school already being patients in our dental practice, we saw many familiar faces!

Our mission was simple: to show the entire preschool the importance of oral hygiene. Murphy’s big teeth and Crystal’s infectious enthusiasm guaranteed that all the kids learned proper brushing and hygiene skills. We think the photos speak for themselves:

This little one took her brushing very seriously.

We spoke to several different groups and all the kids had a great time. And Murphy left with shiny white teeth!

We are always accepting patients of all ages. Visit this page to request an appointment or call us at (203) 799 – 2929.

Break a Leg – Just Don’t Break a Tooth!

As the opening performance of Tarzan the Musical approaches, we are pleased to announce that we are AmityBill Advertising Partners for this exciting show! We are one of only a few dental offices making such a significant financial commitment to this production. Tarzan is scheduled to kick off on Friday March 20, 2015, at Amity High School in Woodbridge.

Many of our patients make up the Cast, Crew, and Orchestra!

In addition to being Advertising Partners for the show, we have another connection. Several of our dental patients are involved with Tarzan as either Cast or Crew members or playing in the Orchestra. As a result, our entire office has a special connection with this Amity High Production.

In addition, Ryan Rappaport, son of our Office Assistant Cathy Rappaport, has a major role in the show. This past week, he has been rehearsing from 5:30 to 10 PM. Go Ryan!

We’d like to wish all of our dental patients – either audience members or those involved with the show – the very best. And remember – break a leg – just not a tooth!

Complementary Patient Wi-Fi

Free Dental Patient Wireless access Wi-Fi at our CT dentist office

Enjoy Wi-Fi in our office!

We are pleased to announce the availability of complementary patient Wi-Fi in our office!

Even though we pride ourselves as being the Orange, CT dental office that runs on time, there will inevitably be times when you are waiting. Rather than searching for a 3G or 4G signal, why not enjoy our dedicated patient wireless network?

We have also teamed up with Optimum (a.k.a Cablevision) to host an Optimum Wi-Fi Hotspot in our office! So those patients who are also Optimum customers can easily get on their wireless network.

Both wireless networks – our dedicated one for patients – as well as the Optimum Hotspot – are completely segregated from our internal network. We take patient privacy very seriously and there are multiple levels of security safeguarding our patient data.

Announcement in the Orange Times

We are pleased that the Orange Times ran an article about our dental practice in the most recent issue! The announcement talks about the advanced training of Drs. Nicholas and Carla Calcaterra as well as what brought them to Orange, CT. The article can be found in Vol 2, Issue 10 dated August 8, 2013.
