To My Patients and Friends,

After 45 years of practicing dentistry, the last 37 of which in Highland Falls, I have finally made the decision to retire.

Over the years, I have gotten to know many of you personally and I am truly grateful for the trust you placed in me. I will miss hearing about your families and discussing world events, cooking, barbecue, sports, investing and gardening. And thank you for always asking about my family in return. I can tell you that I am very much looking forward to spending time with my new grandson!

There are some exciting changes in store for the office along with some familiar faces. Dr. Jeffrey Kay and Dr. Moe Katz will be taking the reins of the practice which will now be called Highland Falls Dental Group. I want to tell you that the selling of my practice came with considerable thought. I sought out candidates that I felt will uphold my excellent standard of care, and I have the utmost confidence in this group.

You can look forward to seeing some renovations in the building as well as some new technology. Digital x-rays, root canals, oral surgery, implants, and even same day crowns(!) can be done without a trip to a specialist.

As with any practice in one location for 35+ years, some much needed facelifts are in the works. But while the wood paneling will (soon) be gone, Lisa will remain to help the doctors get to know you. The office phone number will remain the same, so you can always reach out to Lisa for all of your dental needs.

I have extreme confidence in Dr. Kay and Dr. Katz. They will bring a wide range of new services as well as a high degree of professionalism to the Town of Highlands and West Point communities. More importantly, I know you will appreciate the level of individualized care they will give to each of you and your families.

I wish you all good health and happiness in the future,


George Papageorge, DDS
