Our Dental Team

Frank A. Madalone, DMD

Dr. Madalone was fascinated with dentistry from his first visit to a dental office. At age 5, he began stating he wanted to be a dentist. This fascination grew into a genuine interest in high school. As a senior, he volunteered as an assistant at the Staten Island Hospital Dental Clinic. This experience confirmed his feelings. He went on to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Fairfield University in 1988 and a Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree from the University Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey in 1992. Following dental school, he completed a general practice residency at Westchester Medical Center and, in 1993, he set out into private practice. His practice experience included associateships in two private practices while maintaining a position treating children at a Westchester County Department of Health Clinic. In 1998, he started his own practice in Mamaroneck. In 2001, he purchased his current practice with which he merged his existing practice.

Continuing education is very important to Dr. Madalone. He takes many courses focusing on the newest dental treatments. These include Implants, esthetic dentistry, and the diagnosis & treatment of temporal  mandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction. In 2008, Dr. Madalone became certified in and began practicing laser-assisted dentistry with the use of the Waterlase hard and soft tissue laser. The laser can be utilized in the treatment of periodontal disease and aesthetic gingival recontouring as well as the preparation of cavities. Many of these procedures can be performed without the patient being numb. He is an active member in the ADA, 9th District Dental Society and the Westchester Shore Dental Forum. He is also an attending dentist at the residency program at Westchester Medical Center, where he shares his experience and enthusiasm while instructing newly graduated dentists.

Dr. Madalone lives in Mamaroneck with his two children, Anthony and Alanna. He can be seen around Mamaroneck playing and coaching various sports, and enjoys gathering with friends and family. He can be reached at the office or via email at dr.m@makingyousmile.com.

This was the first dental practice in Westchester County to have an in house computer system [1978].  He has introduced to the practice a computerized office management system, digital photography, and digital x-rays [which reduces radiation by about 80% and enhances diagnosis].
