Meet Amara Altman

Amara understands the importance of dental safety in a practice. She has spent her professional life in dentistry as part of a three-generation dentistry family. Amara has worked in every area of a dental office, from dental assistant to sterilization and room disinfecting. She believes there is nothing more important than a safe dental office.

Her career began in the 6th grade working in her grandfather’s office during the summers helping to file charts. She then worked her way up to answering phones and confirming appointments until she eventually became her father’s dental assistant in Schenectady. As the practice grew, Amara moved with him when they opened a new office in Malta, New York. Her grandfather and father, her uncle, aunt, brother, and sister-in-law are all dentists in the Capital Region.

When her brother graduated from dental school and started working in their office, she became his dental assistant. Her brother promoted her to the patient coordinator to be the face of the office because she loved patient interaction. There she managed appointment scheduling and insurance.

You could say Amara grew up in dentistry. She is committed to her patients' safety and comfort and brings a unique perspective to Adirondack Safety Solutions.

  • The best place to get your office OSHA evaluation. After this pandemic, we had to improvise our respiratory protection and Matthew has helped us to build it. He helped us with our manual, training and SDS. I highly recommend Adirondack Safety Solutions for your office OSHA compliance.

  • As Dentists, safety, protection measures, and health code compliance have always been our top priorities. However, with COVID-19, these measures need a lot more attention and staff need more necessary training. I invited Mathew over to give his suggestions and updates. He provided me with a customized program and got our practice completely OSHA complaint and trained. I am super happy with his services and I think every dentist should use his services. It really gives you the peace of mind you need, knowing you have a practice that is OSHA compliant and staff who are trained.

  • ADK Safety Solutions got me through OSHA with ease and made me feel so much more comfortable with the process. Unlike a lot of practices that are operated remotely, I was able to get help tailored to my office. I can't say enough about how well taken care of we felt. Thank you!
