Stuart Feurstein knew at a young age that he was interested in the medical field and was good at working with his hands. When he was in high school and college, he spent a lot of time in the office of his dentist, who was also a friend of the family. “I didn’t know much about dentistry, but I watched as he put his patients at ease with his kind manner,” Dr. Feurstein says. “The work he did really changed people’s lives and inspired me to want to do the same.” After graduation from Columbia University, where he earned a degree in chemical engineering, Dr. Feurstein attended the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. He graduated with a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 1985. He completed a residency at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx and later worked in his hometown, Port Chester, New York, for the dentist who inspired him to follow in his footsteps. “I worked in his office after completing dental school, my residency program and after working in another practice,” Dr. Feurstein says. “It was almost like a residency program in itself, learning techniques and picking up tips that can only come from years of experience.” Dr. Feurstein went into private practice in Mount Kisco in 1992 and moved to his current modern office in town in 2000. He belongs to a number of professional associations, including the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He also is a member of the Better Business Bureau. Dr. Feurstein went into private practice in Mount Kisco in 1992 and moved to his current modern office in town in 2000.

We are a preventative and family-oriented general practice treating adults and children in Mt. Kisco since 1992. Our office provides a wide range of services utilizing advanced technology. These include crowns, bridges, tooth colored fillings, laser assisted non-surgical gum treatments and implant restorations. Cosmetic treatments include porcelain veneers, bonding and deep bleaching (teeth whitening) and InvisalignA . We do this using digital X-rays, a diagnostic laser, and often with a laser that replaces the drill. For those who suffer from sleep apnea or snoring, working with a physician, we can often make an oral appliance. This resembles a night guard that can reposition the jaw. This opens the airway alleviating symptoms and reducing the need for CPAP.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.

What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.

0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
