Personal Biography

Dr. Michael Schlissel received his D.D.S. from New York University College of Dentistry, and from 1999 – 2001 and was an instructor at NYU College of Dentistry Faculty Division of Comprehensive Care & Applied Practice Administration & Behavioral Sciences. He has been practicing dentistry since 1990 and has done continuing education focusing on implant placement, extractions and composite restoration. He has won awards through the Alpha Omega Fraternity, Ninth District Dental Society, and has also been named a Best of The Hudson Valley dentist. 

Dr. Schlissel loves when he sees the smile on a patient’s face when their restoration is complete. Knowing that he has the ability to relieve their pain and allow them to feel confident is the best feeling.Dr. Schlissel always allows his patients to express fears and concerns and looks to validate their concerns, which he believes allows for optimal and successful treatment.

One of Dr. Schlissel’s most memorable patient stories was about a young woman who presented with significant discoloration and decay a few weeks prior to her wedding. She was embarrassed and concerned about her wedding photos. Dr. Schlissel and the patient agreed on a treatment plan which included composite restoration. Her tears of surprise and joy at her first site of her new smile will stay with him forever.

Another one was when Dr. Schlissel was able to complete a restoration on a grandfather whose fear of dentistry had kept him from flying to meet his grandchildren. Completing the necessary extractions to allow the infections to clear and placement of crowns truly changed his life and was humbling to Dr. Schlissel.

Dr. Schlissel is a native New Yorker who was born in Brooklyn and grew up on Long Island. He moved with his wife and family to Dutchess County in 2001. Dr. Schlissel has been married 32 years and has three amazing children.In his free time, Dr. Schlissel plays (year round) basketball, football, golf, tennis and now pickleball. He also loves hiking, music, concerts and wine tastings. Dr. Schlissel will always say “yes” to a travel adventure, but spending time with his family and close friends is what he thinks is most important.

“What a great experience! Everyone who works here is kind and caring. They take the time to explain what’s going on. They’re friendly. They make you feel taken care of. I couldn’t be happier with my experience, and I normally hate going to the dentist.”
