Inspire’s Dental Department is staffed by New York State Licensed Dentists and New York State Licensed Dental Hygienists, assisted by Dental Assistants, all within a bilingual (English/Spanish) environment.

Inspire offers many facets of general dentistry including but not limited to cleanings, extractions and fillings. All services are based on the needs of the patient. We participate in Medicaid and Medicaid Managed Care plans as well as commercial insurances.
Inspire’s Speech & Hearing Department is staffed by New York State Licensed and American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) certified Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists. We are dedicated to addressing your communication needs.
A broad range of diagnostic and support services are provided, including comprehensive hearing evaluations, and aural rehabilitation for hearing loss and cochlear implants. Approximately 28 million Americans experience some degree of hearing loss, and the incidence of hearing loss increases with age. 30% of people over the age of 65 have a hearing loss, increasing to nearly 50% of people over the age of 75. Educational information on hearing loss, hearing aids and cochlear implants can be obtained from the American Academy of Audiology
Inspire’s Audiologists are licensed Hearing Aid Dealers able to fully evaluate your hearing aid needs, help you select the appropriate device, and dispense the hearing aid to you. Inspire dispenses hearing aids to patients with private support, insurance, or who are Medicaid-eligible.
Inspire’s Speech-Language Pathologists offer evaluations and treatments for individuals facing difficulty in any aspect of communication. Our Speech-Language Pathologists are trained to assist people who demonstrate a variety of communication disorders including speech articulation disorders, apraxia, dysarthria, voice disorders, fluency disorders, aphasia, language disorders, developmental disabilities and hearing loss. Anyone in need of communication intervention is eligible to receive speech services. Information about Speech-Language Pathology can be obtained from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association
Inspire’s Physical Rehabilitation Department is staffed by New York State Licensed Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists, assisted by New York State Licensed Physical Therapist Assistants and New York State Licensed Occupational Therapy Assistants. We offer evaluations, intervention within one-on-one treatment sessions, consultations with family members, the development of home programs, and recommendations for adaptive equipment.
Our Physical Therapy staff is trained in the treatment of various diagnoses of orthopedic and neurological origin, and developmental disabilities. Evaluation and treatment addresses gross motor performance, balance, ambulation, safety, and functional skills. Therapy sessions can be held in both Inspire’s therapy room and in the full-size heated therapy pool. Information on Physical Therapy can be obtained from the American Physical Therapy Association
Our Occupational Therapy staff is available for evaluation and treatment in the areas of fine motor performance, activities of daily living, safety, and functional performance and adaptation. Information about Occupational Therapy can be obtained from the American Occupational Therapy Association
An important part of Inspire’s Physical Rehabilitation program is the availability of aquatic therapy. Inspire has the largest outpatient therapeutic pool of its kind in Orange County, New York. Ranging in depth from 2 to 4 feet, it has stairs and a chair lift for easy access, and handrails lining the perimeter for stability during movement. Aquatic therapy is ideal for patients who have difficulty supporting their full body weight, experience rigidity or spastic muscles, or suffer chronic pain. The buoyancy of the water allows more freedom of movement with minimal joint stress, making it ideal for increasing strength and endurance for functional activities. The pool’s therapeutic temperature of 95 degrees helps promote muscle relaxation and pain relief.
Inspire’s Community Swim program is coordinated by the Physical Rehabilitation Department. This program allows adults in the community access to the therapeutic pool without the supervision of a Physical Therapist. Admission is by application, and requires an interview with one of Inspire’s Physical Therapists and medical clearance by a physician. Information and an application can be obtained by calling Inspire at (845) 294-8806.
