As seen in Hudson Valley Magazine - June 2017 Dental Profiles

“Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you,” says Steven P. Stern, DMD, dental director of Windsor Dental Center. “Having a healthy, bright, and beautiful smile not only enhances your appearance . . . it enhances your confidence." 

“When I started Windsor Dental over 25 years ago, my goal was to create a dental center that would be convenient for busy families, including early morning, evening, and weekend appointments,” Dr. Stern notes. “Today, we offer the most comprehensive dental services in the region, all under one roof. With multiple specialists on staff, our patients never need to go anywhere else.” 

Windsor Dental Center offers the latest in dental technology. Digital Smile Design is a groundbreaking technology that allows you to design your smile with your doctor before scheduling your makeover. We use 3D radiograph images and photos of your teeth to analyze your facial features to provide you with a realistic vision of your new teeth. 

The E4D technology machine allows each patient to watch as a ceramic crown is produced during his or her visit. All-on-4™ featuring zirconia implant bridges is a revolutionary new procedure that allows patients to receive a full set of replacement teeth in just one appointment. We use 3D software technology to create precise custom implants, which improves results and reduces healing time. 


5.12.17     --   Take a closer look at one of our favorites , Dr. Jigisha is such an important part of our team.  We love her and so do our patients.  





 We would like to recognize Aprils Employee of the Month, Nicole!! Nicole was chosen for her demonstration of outstanding teamwork. Nicole also took over Dr. David's large cases, including all hospital and medical cases. Congratulations Nicole!!! #WCW #windsorsmile#employeeofthemonth #youdabest




Message to our patients-

Today is a sad day at Windsor Dental Center.

We learned that our Dr. Vazemiller passed away over the weekend. We are overcome with sadness.

Dr. Vazemiller was a true professional and a friend.

Professional- in his work ethic and professional in his caring nature for all patients in pain. Anytime he was asked to step in for a consult he made it his pleasure to help us out. Dr. Vazemiller would stay late for any patient in pain and was committed to his profession and his patients. His compassion was as strong as he was.

Friend- he was always concerned for each of us- always asking how we are- always remembering about previous conversations- always caring, sincerely.

Upon delivering the news, the outpouring of emotion from friends and people he worked with reinforced my belief that although all of us work together at Windsor Dental, we are truly a family.

We just lost a family member. David you will be missed!

Steven P. Stern

It is with personal sadness but warm wishes that we announce the retirement of Dr. Samuel Kramer. He is highly regarded at Windsor Dental and his leaving marks the end of an era. Dr. Kramer graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. Following his graduation , he practiced general dentistry for a decade before deciding to specialize in endodontics. He was accepted into New York University's endodontic program, and upon graduation was awarded a Cerificate in Endodontics in 1991. Dr. Kramer split his working time between private practice and instructing dental students at the New York University College of Dentistry. Although he is retiring from treating patients he will continue to teach at NYU. Dr. Stern held a brunch for Dr. Kramer October 30, 2016 to celebrate his years at Windsor Dental. He will be missed by all here and we wish him a happy retirement.

We just received this great letter from Operation Gratitude. We are so honored to be able to support our troops.  

Greetings from the Armory!

On behalf of Operation Gratitude and the Military recipients of our care packages, I thank you for your generous donation. Your 'in-kind contribution' will enable us to send over 100,000 chock-full Care Packages this year to the tens of thousands of brave men and women still deployed overseas in harsh and remote areas; to their children anxiously awaiting their return; and to New Recruits, Veterans, First Responders, Wounded Warriors and their Care Givers.

With the help of supporters nationwide since 2003, we have sent more than 1.1 Million Operation Gratitude Care Packages containing snacks, hygiene products, entertainment and hand-made items, and personal letters from appreciative Americans. These expressions of love and concern from fellow citizens offer our Military and Veterans a much-deserved "Thank You For Your Service" and are always greeted with enthusiasm and great appreciation.

 As one Private First Class wrote:

"It's Christmas morning over here in Kuwait, and your box is the only present I got to open today and let me tell you -- I was all smiles and teared up a couple times with what those wonderful, beautiful kids wrote. It's hard being away from my wife and two daughters but your words and gifts and support make it a little easier. I got so excited over the Beanie Baby and I LOVE the hand-knit scarf -- very touching. Please keep doing what you're doing. It means the world to all of us over here on this side of the world! And the individual label made it really heartfelt and special! I thank you very much for what you all do. God bless and Merry Christmas!"

To read all the current letters of thanks from our troops and to see their photos with your Operation Gratitude care packages, please

"Like" us on Facebook and "follow" us on Twitter and Pinterest

I hope you saw the coverage of our One Millionth Care Package celebration and delivery -- all made possible by your support. Please join us as we March to the 2nd Million Care Packages!

Thank you again for your thoughtfulness and wonderful patriotic spirit. Every single donation we receive furthers our mission of saying "Thank You" to those who serve. The recipients of your generosity will remember your kindness forever. And I will always be appreciative of your support and encouragement for Operation Gratitude.

Windsor Dental has been proud to have Dr. Stanley Riveles practicing as one of our orthodontists here for many years.  His professionalism and caring manner with the families he worked with will be missed by many.  We are sad to see him go but excited for him in his new adventures which are sure to include many hours of skiing and baseball with his grandchildren.  Dr. Stern hosted a surprise luncheon for Dr. Riveles where even some of his old assistants came by to wish him good luck.  Happy Retirement!!!!  


On April 29th Dr. Stern as president of the Newburgh study group introduced Dr. Dean Vafiadis as the evening's guest speaker.  The meeting was hosted by St. Lukes Cornwall Hospital in Newburgh.  

Dr. Vafiadis is a world renowned lecturer.  The topic was CAD/CAM crowns.  The future is "here" said Dr. Vafiadis, sighting many advantages with going to digital impressions of teeth.  The most significant advantage is greater accuracy in the making of a crown.  Dr. Stern is proud to be one of two doctors at the meeting to provide this service in their offices currently.


Dr. David Zelig was our guest speaker at this month’s Newburgh Dental Study group, lecturing to over thirty-five local dentists.  The lecture highlighted a procedure that few surgeons perform-the “All-on- 4”.

The “All- on- 4” is essentially teeth in a day.  The technique is for patients who, in the past, have been told that they are not dental implant candidates.  

Dr. David Zelig has performed over 200 cases using the All- on-4 technique.


Windsor Dental is pleased to announce the our newest technology, the state of the art i-CAT cone beam 3-D dental imaging system.  Now, patients visiting Windsor Dental Center will benefit from having the most advanced 3-D dental and facial imaging available.  Patients can view their CT scan along with our Doctors, which will allow them to better understand their diagnosis, treatment plan and expected outcome in one convenient visit.    


It is with great pleasure to announce Dr. Lisa Cohen as an addition to our practice.

Dr. Cohen graduated at the top of her class at SUNY Stony Brook and was inducted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon honor society in 2005.  Since then she has excelled in many areas of general dentistry.  She worked as a general dentist for several years before attending the Manhattan VA Endodontic program where she obtained her certificate.  She has expertise in all phases of both surgical and non-surgical root canal therapy.

In the short time since she joined our practice she has impressed our patients with her capabilities as well has her caring demeanor and professionalism.  She is committed to the ideal treatment of each patient and strives for perfection. 



The staff of Windsor Dental is participating in Adopt- a- Family again this year.  We have chosen three special families; we are excited to help fulfill their Christmas wishes.  If interested in helping please call the office for the details.

The great halloween candy buy back!

As many of you have noticed when you visit our office, we have students that shadow the doctors, seeing how each case is presented, how each treatment is rendered. These students are from Orange - Ulster BOCES, and recently we received an email from the head of the program that organizes the clinical visits. "I would just like to take a moment to say thanks for helping to provide such wonderful, educational clinical experiences for the New Vision Medical students. The feedback I get from them has been overwhelmingly positive. By you and your patients allowing these future professionals the opportunity to shadow in all the various departments within Windsor Dental, you are affording them valuable experiences. Each and every one at Windsor Dental have been welcoming and encouraging to my students. You all demonstrate a high level of professionalism by setting a wonderful example. Thank you for being OU BOCES clinical partners."  - Mary M. RN


We received a letter from the American Cancer Society in regards to their Daffodil Days program that went on during the month of February, and would like to share an excerpt from it with you: "Please accept our heartfelt appreciation for your participation in our 2011 Daffodil Days Festival. We are delighted to announce that the American Cancer Society - Hudson Valley - raised over $215,000. With your help, we will have a world with more birthdays. Hudson Valley community members unselfishly donated 984 Gifs of Hope to local healthcare facilities. Over 125 students from Middletown High School participated in our Fourth Annual Run For Hope to St. Teresa's Nursing Home. We transitioned from a volunteer driver delivery system to a Fed Ex delivery system, and Fed Ex donated all the deliveries."

Our service men and women sacrifice for us so we may continue to enjoy the freedoms we have. Sometimes it feels like "Thank You" isn't enough, but it's appreciated more than you know, and is so much better than saying nothing at all. So, to all the Veterans - THANK YOU from the very bottom of our hearts. You are amazing people, and we appreciate all you do for us, and for our country.

Doctors Costigan, Thomas and Bae, along with all of our hygienists, will be attending an all day Laser Treatment Seminar/Workshop on Friday 6/18/10 in New York City. There, they will learn how to use precision EZLase Laser Therapy for Periodontics (gentle removal of the diseased, infected and inflamed tissue within the perio pockets with no bleeding), learn about Waterlase MD Laser Treatment of Cold Sores and Canker Sores (can take away the pain immediately after the sore has started, which allows for faster healing), as well as tooth whitening (great for those with sensitive teeth). This exciting technology is already in use in our office by some of our doctors. With this certification, we can continue to expand our practice to better care for our patients.


We have recently completed our Soles for Souls campaign (our office was the drop off site). This community service project was brought to us by Jared and Ilana Hinson who collected the shoes from a large box in the reception area of our office. They were able to spread the word through school, religion classes and Girl Scouts that anyone with shoes in good condition that are no longer wanted, can deposit them at our office, and they will be given to those less fortunate. Needless to say the kids were so excited to learn that their project had collected over 700 pairs of shoes! The shoes were sent out through the Solid Rock Church, where missionaries visiting foreign countries will be giving away the shoes. Congratulations to Jared and Ilana on the success of your project, and thank you to all who so kindly donated.


We are pleased to announce that our office received a commendation by United Concordia this week "for the exceptional care (we) provide TRICARE Dental Program enrollees. (We) have demonstrated patriotism by not only providing quality treatment and superior service to U.S. Armed Forces and their families, but by doing so with empathy and professionalism. (Our) commitment to quality and attention to detail has placed (us) in the top 1% of dental offices treating TDP enrollees."

The commendation came with TDP's very own Challenge Coin, which is a part of military tradition today.

Thank you to Dental Assistants Anna, Colleen and Eka who have signed on with Great Lakes Dental USA to assist during the upcoming Military Dental Readiness event on June 5 & 6. Great Lakes Dental works with the Department of Defense Reserve Health Readiness Program for the military Reserve Service members. It organizes these events so our service men and women are able to receive needed dental care, and gives them the ability to maintain healthy teeth and gums with regular cleanings. 

The Windsor Dental Center proudly supports our Troops and we are eternally grateful to those who put their lives on the line so we may continue to enjoy our freedom.





Dr. Stern will be attending a two day course this Friday and Saturday where he will learn about, and be instructed on how to place All On Four Dental Implants. These implants are designed for patients who have been turned down for regular implants or even turned away by dentists who can't help them due to lack of bone to which a regular dental implant needs to attach. Some of the benefits of this procedure are: it is virtually painless; helps to prevent further bone loss; gives you teeth immediately (fixed denture); replaces your regular denture for life; minimal discomfort and healing time; easily maintained through proper oral hygiene; restores the ability to eat all types of food; creates a whole new smile in just one day.


 Windsor Dental doctors to attend Ethics and Jurisprudence Course

Most of our dentists will be in attendance of the 9th District Dental Society's course being held tomorrow. On the agenda: Ethics and Jurispridence, which will "focus on conflicts that occur in the practice of dentistry and how to apply regulations, standards and professional expectations to real life ethical conflicts."



Every year we sponsor a blood drive through the American Red Cross, and this year will be no different! Jamie is coordinating this event, so if you have any questions, please call our office and ask for her. Our scheduled date is July 19, 2010 from 4pm - 8pm in our front parking lot.

In honor of Windsor Dental's 20th Anniversary, Dr. Stern is planning an event to give back to the New Windsor community. Stay tuned for more details as the time gets closer!!


You can now have a Crown Prepped and Inserted on the Same Day!

We now have the availability of completing crowns and onlays in the same day! With the new technology, patients can have an all porcelain restoration prepped and inserted in the same day. No more long waits between appointments, and color matching is much easier as well. Can you tell which one the crown is? 



Congratulations to Laura!

Windsor Dental would like to congratulate our hygienist, Laura, on her recent accomplishment. Laura is now certified to administer Nitrous Oxide and give injections during hygiene procedures. This is yet another beneift we have to offer our patients. Now we have two hygienists available to offer nitrous and pain management during your routine hygiene visit.


Dr. Stern attends World Clinical Laser Institute

Welcome Back Dr. Stern! Dr. Stern spent the first week of March in San Diego at the World Clinical Laser Institute perfecting advanced laser techniques. Laser therapy is used on those patients in need of surgical and non-surgical periodontal therapy, as well as biopsys of oral lesions, and the treament of desensitizing of teeth. Lasers can also be used to enhance the teeth whitening process. With all of these procedures, it is safe, reduces patient chair time and eliminates post op discomfort.


Windsor Dental would like to welcome a new addition to our team, Emelie. She will be assisting Maria in the billing department. This a fabulous and long awaited addition to our team. Her presence will give our patients another avenue to help with those insurance and billing questions.


Thank you for your generosity!

Due to the overwhelming response from our gracious patients, the Souls for Soles shoe drive has been extended through March 1, 2010.


Trust your smile to an Invisalign Preferred Provider

Like most medical needs, selecting the right doctor is a very important decision. You want to choose an orthodontist or dentist that you have a good rapport with, and can understand and provide the treatment outcome you’re looking for.

Invisalign Preferred Providers have achieved a level of clinical training and experience in treating patients with the Invisalign system. . In addition, some doctors have distinguished themselves with even higher experience and recognized as Premier and Elite Providers.

Windsor Dental Center would like to congratulate Dr. Kevin Boyle on his distinguished honor of becoming a Preferred Provider.


Happy New Year! We at Windsor Dental are starting off the new decade with a bang. We are proud to announce the addition of our new Board Certified Oral Surgeon- Dr. David Zelig. Dr. Zelig will be joining us on February 4, 2010 and will be holding office hours on Thursdays. This is great for our patients, as it offers additional hours for your oral surgery needs.


Just a little look into our Holiday Luncheon! Santa and all his elves.


Dr. Stern and Dr. Drescher are currently at a BioLase Certification Class- designed for dentists who wish to incorporate lasers into their practice. The use of a laser will greatly reduce the trauma typically associated with surgical procedures. It minimizes bleeding, improves the healing process, and lessens discomfort. This effort is just another one of the ways that our doctors are continuing to provide the most current technology and advanced services to our patients.


To our valued patients:

As we head into the holiday season, we wanted to take the opportunity to tell you how much we value and appreciate you as a patient, and a member of our dental "family". We know you have many choices for oral health care and we are grateful you have chosen us.

As always, please don't hesitate to call if you have any questions, or if you would like to schedule an appointment.

Again, please accept our thanks for your continued support of our practice, and accept our very best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season.


Dr. Steven Stern & the Windsor Dental Team 


It is that time of year again- The time for giving!

This year Windsor Dental is working with Soles4Souls.  Soles4Souls has a simple mission: To impact as many lives as possible with the gift of shoes.

Soles4Souls facilitates the donations of shoes, which are used to aid the hurting worldwide. Shoe companies, retailers, and individuals can donate footwear (both new and used). Soles4Souls is a 501(c)(3) recognized by the IRS, and donating parties are eligible for tax advantages.

The idea behind gifts of shoes is nothing new to the Soles4Souls team, as they coordinated relief efforts for the Asian Tsunami and Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, netting over 1 Million pairs donated for these disasters. The team originally operated as with several churches partnering in the collection and distribution of footwear.

Please feel free to drop off your slightly used or new shoes at our dop box located in the entrace to our office or visit www.give to how you can help in other ways.

"Changing the world one pair at a time"-


Last week a couple of us from the office took a trip out to Connecticut to watch Dr. Drescher perform with his band The Fairfield Counts.  He is the sax player all the way to the right.  




Given the current condition of our economy it is sometimes easy to justify skipping your cleaning or deciding to disregard recommended dental treatment.  Lost hours at work, extra expenses, or perhaps treatment you need that doesn't actually hurt yet, are all reasons you may use to justify avoiding the dentist.  However, there is a strong, researched link between oral health and overall health and neglecting the former will inevitably cause a decline in the latter.  Please take a few moments to check out this video about a woman who was hospitalized for days, all because of a tooth infection that could have been prevented with regular dental care.  If you want to stay healthy, remember that oral health care is just as important as your regular health care. 

Remember the saying: "Ignore your teeth and they'll go away." 



Keep an eye out for us while you're on the web - soon we'll have a Facebook profile and eventually videos available on YouTube.  Who knows, maybe we'll even get onto Twitter!  Any ideas, comments, or suggestions can be emailed to



Dr. Stern and Dr. Edward Drescher, our Board Certified Implant and Oral Surgeon, will be offering a day of savings on dental implants.  They have reduced the price for the entire treatment, surgical and restorative, by $600.  This savings is available for one day only, September 29th, 2009.  This is just a quick FYI for patients thinking about dental implants as a treatment option.  If interested, please call our office at (845)565-6677 and ask for Melissa to set up your free consultation.
