                "We asked around and everyone said, this is the only place to be!"

Welcome! We love meeting new patients and their families, and always ask "what brought you today?". We are delighted and very proud that so often the response is, "We asked around and everyone said, this is the only place to be!"

Puccio Orthodontics was founded in October of 1987, with the philosophy that "we treat you as if you were one of our family members". Dr. Puccio and Dr. Hussain have now teamed up to offer years of clinical experience combined with advanced technology to provide the highest quality orthodontic care for your family.

Our office is conveniently located next to the Schodack Town Hall, right off I-90 at exit 11 in the village of Castleton-on-Hudson, Schodack, New York. 

Gary Thomas Puccio, D.D.S., has been practicing orthodontics for 35 years and is a board-certified orthodontist, which is a dental specialty that requires years of education beyond the completion of dental school. His interest in orthodontics began many years before dental school, with his own orthodontic treatment as an adolescent. 

Because of his own experience with orthodontic treatment as an adolescent, Dr. Puccio is familiar with many of the concerns a person might have when considering an orthodontist. His goal is to treat you like family with the most trusted, advanced dental technology available. In fact, some dentists in the East Greenbush and Schodack area send their own families to Dr. Puccio for quality, trusted orthodontic care. It’s a testament to the high quality results Dr. Puccio and his entire Schodack, NY orthodontic staff achieve when helping you get the smile you’ve always wanted.

S. Rassal Hussain, D.M.D., believes in this same philosophy, but brings a different generational perspective with great excitement and insights for the future. In fact, his Master Thesis was a study of the "Generational Perspectives of Orthodontists in the US and Canada". Although his training encompassed all aspects of traditional orthodontics including orthognathic surgery and aligner therapy, he has a special interest in the application of digital technologies to contemporary orthodontic practice. This will allow us to provide more efficient, comfortable, and convenient treatment for our patients. 

We develop individualized treatment plans based on patient needs and desires, in order to begin treatment at the ideal time for effectiveness and efficiency using the most advanced technology.  We are always available if you have any questions or concerns.

9/12/22 - My 10 year old daughter had her first appointment (braces consultation) with Dr. Hussain recently and we are both very pleased with our experience at this practice. Scheduling and check-in was a smooth process. The whole staff (receptionist, hygienist and the dentist) were very friendly and professional. My daughter was quite anxious when she walked in but is now looking forward to go back and get braces. I would highly recommend this place.

To All at Dr. Puccio's office,
Thank you so much for making my teeth so nice!! They look so good!! Also, thank you for the awesome cup filled with "illegal foods." I LOVE it!! You guys were so nice to me and my horrible teeth. You all made me want to come to the orthodontist with all the fun contests and great zebra pictures on the wall. Even though you didn't use my (awesome!) idea to put huge TVs on the ceiling, the exam room looks cool and I wish I could see it with all the renovations done.


Dear Dr. Puccio, Eileen, Danielle, Deb, Shannon, Jaime, and Shannon,
My husband and I just wanted to thank you for a very positive, warm, and comforting initial visit to your practice with our five year old daughter, Katie. We were so impressed with how Katie was handled, the effective office routine, your positive and outgoing staff, Dr. Puccio's manner in including the child and parents in the conversation and the overall experience itself!! Thank you for a great 1/2 hr. The welcome letter was great...we can't wait to come back. Thanks again.

Carrie and Jesse & Katie too
