To my patients:

The summer is unfortunately over and we are already planning for the holidays and the end of the year. I hope you all had a restful and enjoyable few months.

Once again this year we are doing our “Share Your Smile” toy drive. This is the 12th year we have collected toys for children who, but for your generosity, might get nothing for the holidays. For those of you who are new to our efforts we ask for new, unwrapped toys and as our way of saying thanks we give you a $10 certificate or credit for any procedure in our office. I know there are many things that compete for your time, attention, and resources at this time of year but these children really need our help.

While thinking of the end of the year I’d like to remind you that your yearly dental insurance allowance and “flex spending” are wasted if not used. Any treatment that has been diagnosed can be completed this calendar year or perhaps stretched across two calendar years for maximum reimbursement. If you haven’t had a checkup recently this is a great time to take care of that and any treatment needed. With the change in many corporate benefits it makes sense to use what is essentially your money before it is lost.

How about this for a milestone…. Sabrina B. Magid, D.M.D. is a resident at Methodist Hospital. Oh my, where have the years gone?! Part of the Columbia, NY Presbyterian Hospital Group this one year general practice residency includes all facets of dentistry in addition to emergency medicine, anesthesiology, ENT and other rotations. Next July, or perhaps a little later to give her a well earned vacation, Dr. Magid will join our practice. What a thrill for me, and for many of you who have watched her grow up through pictures or in person, a wonderful affirmation of life’s cycles.

From Dr. Rapp and myself, as well as all of our team; Sandy, Nicole, Dona, Joann, Rosaura, Helen, and Tara we wish you a very happy and healthy holiday season.

Best Regards,

Dr. Kenneth S. Magid
