A Rich Heritage with a History over 45 years

The history of our practice started back in the year of 1971 when Dr. Arnold Loew and Dr. Robert Levey decided to become business partners. The practice opened in the same year with Dr. Loew providing quality dental care to many of the patients and families we still provide for today. Endicott native Dr. Mario Silvestri was welcomed into the practice by Dr. Loew in 1990 and shortly after, a partnership was formed between the two doctors. Lifelong local Dr. Ryan Comfort joined Dr. Silvestri in 2010 and eventually became a partner in the Practice. Silvestri & Comfort Family Dentistry ushered the practice into the new millennium with increased technological advances and new ideas. Dr. SIlvestri and Dr. Comfort were pleased to welcome the practices of Dr. Robert Hogan of Binghamton and Dr. Stuart Rouff of Johnson City over the next years. Vestal native Dr. Justin Birdsall was welcomed to the practice in the summer of 2015. It was evident from the beginning that Dr. Birdsall shared our core values and beliefs and could help us write the next chapter of our story. His presence solidifies our future as a premier oral health care center.

Most recently, with the addition of The Practice of Dr. Sanjay Kamodia, we continue to strengthen our commitment to the community and our presence as a first rate practice for advanced dental care.

In 2022, we began our newest chapter with our NEW name. . . .Gentle Dental Care by Silvestri Comfort and Birdsall
