Springfield Dentist Has Dedicated Team for Local Community

LONGMEADOW, MA--(Marketwired - January 25, 2016) - Dr. Jim Dores, a longtime general family dentist, has an expert dental team that has been carefully selected to give patients optimal oral health care.

Dr. Dores, who operates Dores Dental, has expanded his dental services and dental team over the last year. He added new front office personnel and two experienced general dentists, Dr. Marie Walsh and Dr. David Ochola, as well as minimally invasive treatments for preparing teeth for cavities and crowns.

"Over the past year, we've added state-of-the-art services and even more dental professionals to treat more people in the community," Dr. Dores said. "We're focused on providing patients with a great dental experience and to show them that dentistry doesn't have to be scary."

Dores Dental has a special vetting process for new employees. Dr. Dores said the hiring method is intended to make sure new employees embody the practice philosophy.

This year, Dr. Dores is encouraging patients and local community members to entrust Dores Dental with their dental care. The office is conveniently located in Longmeadow and is open six days a week. Families and working professionals can schedule their treatments before or after work or even on a Saturday.

"Our team is trained and committed to serving our patients in the best possible way, ensuring personal attention for everyone that comes through the doors," Dr. Dores said.

Dores Dental, 175 Dwight Rd., Ste. 304, serves the communities of Longmeadow, Hampden, Southwick, Springfield, Wilbraham, West Springfield and Agawam, Mass., as well as Enfield and Somers, Conn. He treats children, teens and adults in his office. Individual services include same-day crowns, inlays and onlays, dental implants, bridges, root canal therapy, periodontal disease treatment, tooth extractions, teeth-whitening treatments, custom mouthguards and Invisalign.

Dr. Dores offers Invisalign to patients who want a discreet, pain-free way to straighten their teeth. This virtually invisible teeth-alignment therapy is popular with busy adults and professionals because of its convenience and comfort.

Dr. Dores spent nine years working in sales and finance before entering dental school. He is a graduate of the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine and worked as an associate dentist for four years before purchasing his own practice in 2010. Dr. Dores has advanced education in general dentistry, Synergy implant training, Invisalign and same-day crowns. He uses a CEREC machine to produce natural-looking and durable same-day restorations and DentalVibe to render pain-free injections.

Dr. Dores received the Vitals Patient Choice Award in 2013 and 2014, a recognition given out by, a patient-review site for doctors. He is dedicated to his community and donates his time to Alana Smiles, a charity that offers treatment for oral cancer patients, and Dentistry From The Heart, a national collaboration of dentists who provide free dentistry for a day for patients without dental insurance. Dores Dental partners with local transportation services, shelters and local food vendors to offer a day of free exams, cleanings, extractions and fillings to those in need. Last year's Dentistry From The Heart program was May 9 at Dr. Dores's Longmeadow dental practice.
