Meet Dr. Comis

Dr. Michael J Comis, DSS - Schenectady, NY

Known to the community as one of Schenectady's top dentists, Dr. Michael Comis gives patients not only the time and attention required to relieve discomfort but ample doses of TLC to alleviate anxiety as well. Taking the edge off patient concerns with his unique blend of warmth, humor, and professionalism, Dr. Comis makes patients feel good about their visits here.

After receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1982, from Georgetown University in Washington, DC, the doctor returned to the Capital District to pursue his childhood dream of providing State-of-the-Art dentistry.

Dr. Comis has over 25 years of experience dedicated to clinical excellence and he devotes extensive time each year to continuing his dental education through studying new techniques and the most advanced dental technology. His concern for patient comfort has, in fact, channeled much of his postgraduate study to the areas of preventive, restorative (fillings & crowns), implant and esthetic dentistry, as well as interceptive periodontics (treatment of the gums and bone) and endodontic (root canals).

The Doctors professional affiliations include active membership in the following:


We try hard to make it easy for you to get the smile you deserve

While this is a general dental practice, we have additional specialty interests in the following areas:

  • Endodontics (root canal)
  • Restorative, esthetic and implant dentistry
  • Interceptive periodontics

Patients, therefore, don’t need to travel elsewhere for necessary specialized treatment. Of course, when it is in a patient’s best interest, I am happy to make referrals to the appropriate specialists.

We Incorporate The Latest Technologies

At our office we believe in staying on the cutting edge of dental technology. We are always researching and investigating new technologies to ensure we offer the most progressive and effective dental service in the area.

Digital X-rays

A patient and eco-friendlly x-ray system that uses up to 90% less radiation when compared to some conventional x-ray systems.

Laser Assisted Cavity Detection(DIAGNOdent)

This can be used to find cavities that our eyes or x-rays cannot detect. We would rather treat cavities when they are small, which is much better for the tooth and patient.

NTI Tension Suppression System

A small dental device, that has been approved by the FDA, that may help stop headache, sore jaw, stiff neck and sensitive teeth.

Silent Night, Tap and MYERSON EMA

Snoring and sleep apnea prevention devices that may help considerably. Why risk surgery.

High Magnification Examination and treatment with LED Lighting

If your teeth are bigger and are under the spotlight, problems are easier to see.
