Our Doctor

Dr. Charles Melton

Dr. Charles Melton is the owner of Starlight Dental Care, a practice which he started in 2005. He brought along his hygienist sister-in-law, Jenine, who gets plenty of compliments on her gentle dental cleaning technique, and his long time assistant, Lori. Together, they have built a comfortable, modern practice that continues to grow.

Dr. Melton completed his dental education in 2000 at SUNY Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine, where he excelled in all subjects, both academically and clinically, and graduated at the top of his class. He completed his residency at the VAMC in Northport. Dr. Melton has practiced in Total Dental Care of Mattituck since 2001, and is proficient in all areas of general dentistry, including cosmetic techniques.

On a personal level, Dr. Melton enjoys many outdoor activities, including skiing, mountain biking, beach volleyball, and surfing, but his true love is for his family. Dr. Melton encourages patients to visit the website TSAlliance.org, to learn about the disease Tuberous Sclerosis, which has affected his daughter.
