5-Star Dental Experiences. Every Time.

“I love Capital Smiles! I live an hour and 45 minutes away from the office but take the drive to come to a place that is always amazing. I have NEVER received anything but the BEST quality care here from all of the staff. Even when having multiple fillings done, the staff has always been conscientious of my anxiety, comfort, and needs. Dr. Page has been phenomenal, and I will never go to another dentist again.”

Jessica E.Clifton Park, NY

“I have been very satisfied with my experience at Capital Smiles. Dr. Page is professional, thorough and obviously very skilled. I have had a cleaning, whitening, two wisdom tooth extractions, two crowns and two fillings done in less than a month, all with a minimum of stress and discomfort, and never feeling rushed, judged or like I was an inconvenience. The facility is clean, the equipment is state-of-the-art, and the staff is friendly and courteous.”

Jim F. Niskayuna, NY

“For anyone who has put off going to a dentist due to past experience, things have changed in 30 years! I have finally found a dentist, Dr. Page, I can trust! No pain, no humiliation and the best assistant ever, Kimberly! After 30 years of painful teeth and a smile I was ashamed of, I'm finally going to get the smile I deserve... Kudos to you Dr. Page and Kimberly, my newest angels! Thank you.”

Melody E.Loudonville, NY

“What a great staff. Everyone there is extremely nice and very attentive, and shall I say, compassionate about a person's needs. I was uneasy about going to a dentist because of the horrors I endured as a child, but they take their time with any questions and make you feel very comfortable about being there. The waiting area is more like a living room, adding more to the comfort not usually associated with the dentist. Even if you haven't been in a while or you're looking for a nicer place, check them out.”

David J.Albany, NY

“I truly feel like a part of the Capital Smiles family. The office is very professional and the staff does a great job explaining the procedures and how the process is going. It is reassuring when they consistently ask how you are feeling. They will immediately stop if you have any discomfort and accommodate to make you feel comfortable. My visits just keep getting better and better.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Dr. Page and our team are always happy to answer our patients’ questions, so feel free to give us a call if you would like to know more about us or the services we offer. In the meantime, you may find it interesting to review the following list of frequently asked questions. People often ask us about these, and since we know that many prefer to do their research online instead of asking someone personally, we have published them here for your convenience.

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

If you ever find yourself in urgent need of dental care, call our practice right away. We are often able to welcome emergency patients on a same-day basis, and we can usually provide practical guidance over the phone to help you manage the situation in the meantime.

If your emergency is after-hours, you might be tempted to visit the local ER. However, with only a handful of exceptions, hospital ER personnel do not have the necessary equipment or training to handle dental emergencies.

How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?

The “best” place for dental work depends on your personal preferences and needs, so it is important to think about what you want in a dental practice. For example, are you interested in a specific treatment? Are you looking for someone who will help you maximize your dental insurance? Do you have some dental anxiety and want to be sedated during procedures? All such factors — and more — can play a role in whether a particular practice is right for you.

Often, a practice’s website or their online reviews can help you get a fair idea of whether you want to schedule an appointment with them.

How Much Does a Dental Checkup & Cleaning Cost in Schenectady?

The average cost of a dental checkup and cleaning throughout the U.S. is $200 - $350. Of course, that number can vary based on several factors, such as the cost of living in a particular area, the experience and reputation of a dental practice, and more.

If you have insurance, your plan is likely to cover 100% of the cost of preventive care, so you may end up paying nothing out of pocket.

How Many Dentists Are in Schenectady?

Estimates vary as to how many dentists are in the Schenectady area. One source estimates there are more than 300, while another says there are around 100. As a general rule of thumb across the United States, there is around 1 dentist for every 2,000 people.

However many dentists are in Schenectady, you are spoiled for choice! We believe our practice stands out because of our high-end technology, personalized care experience, and Dr. Page’s remarkable level of skill.
