I needed a new dentist i was told about DR DORES in Longmeadow I really get nervous with dentist but after going to DR DORES for my second time i love going to the dentist when you first walk in the door, The Ladys greet you with a smile and make you feel at home there and the staff is great . Had a deep cleaning today it was painless and she was very gentle. I was glad i was told about them,if you need a dentist i strongly reccomend DR DORES. You will not be sorry trust me.

Dores Dental is the best dental office I have ever visited. The friendly attitude of all staff and Dr. Dores is wonderful and if I could give a ten star rating I would 🙂 My teeth cleaning with Sonia was pain free and it came out better than any other dentist I have ever visited. Most importantly— Dr. Doris saved a broken rear molar in a pain free and extremely affordable way. During the procedure, both the initial anesthesia and the treatment on the tooth was completely pain free. This experience leaves me absolutely in awe at how amazing this dental office really is.. I am so very happy to have found this office. Thank you Dores Dental.

I moved from out  of state and needed to find a local dentist.  I drive right  by  Dores Dental all the time, so I thought I’d try them.  Super clean facility, friendly and professional staff.  I didn’t realize they also offered orthodontia.  Very pleased with the decision to try Dores Dental and will definitely be returning!

I am updating my post. Dr. Dores is my dentist. Him and his office staff are very kind and he is a very good dentist. He has a calming demeanor. Today I called the office because I started having some issues with one of my back teeth. Dr. Dores secretary had me come in immediately and Dr. Dores was able to figure out the issue with my tooth and then took care of it. If I didn’t get in with his office, I would have most likely had an abscess starting to brew. Try Dores Dental, you won’t be sorry!

The best dentistry there is! What makes this place so special are the professional, caring, and thoughtful staff who put their patients first. Every time I walk into the office, I feel like home. The staff always create a friendly and comfortable atmosphere. I never feel like just another patient. They always take their time with me to offer the best care. Ever since I started visiting Dr. Dores I have no longer been afraid to go to the dentist! All the fear and anxiety disappeared. I even got a chocolate chip cookie on my way out! I would recommend Dr. Dores to anyone! I am thankful that Dr. Dores and his team have made a difference in the way they service and treat patients because this has made a huge difference in my life and I have been blessed by it!

Every member of their staff is friendly, engaging, professional and considerate!  The treatment is state of the art, but the manner in which you’re treated is very old-fashioned.  This practice is the best run office I’ve ever been in.  Every patient is treated with respect and kindness.  Each staff member makes you feel valued and welcome.  I know that my dental health is in competent hands with Dores Dental!  I have referred perspective patients to them with confidence!

I would highly recommend Dores Dental. The staff is professional and extremely friendly. Dr James Dores is an excellent dentist! His work is outstanding and I trust him. In the past I have been to dental offices that have tried to sell me services that are not necessary. Dr Dores only recommends dental services that I need. My teeth are in great shape right now thanks to Dores Dental. I suggested him to my husband who went last week and was equally impressed with their office and services. He came home and told me that he was treated exceptionally well and they did a superior dental cleaning.

Dr. Dores and his wonderful staff are always professional, friendly, accommodating, understanding, and knowledgeable.  My mother is a patient, and she always feels relaxed, confident, and assured that Dr. Dores and his staff have done an excellent job on her teeth. Thank you, Dr. Dores and amazing staff of women and men!!!

Noemi M. from East Longmeadow, MA (Source: Yelp)


Wow, this is our first time going here and the place is so great. My boys have a sensory delay and Shelley the hygienist was so great with them. She explain to the boys every step how she was going to examine their teeth and do the cleaning. As well, made it a education game looking for farm and jungle animals in their mouth. The boys love her. You walk in and the secretary make you feel so welcomed. The place is so clean and comfortable. You really don’t feel like your in a dentist office. They attended to you quickly and gives you your quickly time. Shelley was very informational and helpful to my boys and Dr. Dores was great. I never seen my boys come out of the dentist office so excited. We will be going back not just for my boys. But, for my daughter and myself.

Diane was very helpful getting my filling comleted fast and without any pain. She turned up the music so I would not hear the drill and would feel more comfortable. Shelly was as nice as always and Dr. Dores was quick but the quality of his work is very very good, as always! The office is awesome and I bring my whole family here.

Best dental staff and service ever! Dr. Dores is amazing! Staff is always kind and welcoming and make me feel super comfortable. Everytime I visit it’s like visting family. I trust Dr. Dores wholeheartedly and that brings me the most comfort no matter what procedure I’m facing. I have never felt so relaxed visiting a dental office and I have never had such a healthy smile! I would recommend Dores Dental to everyone!

Never have I been to a dental office where I was treated like a Queen. Customer Service is a priority there and the cleanliness and modern equipment was also great to see! Free gift for being a new patient, tour of the office, a fridge with free drinks were all nice touches. Everyone obviously loving their job with big smiles, you can’t ask for more. Shelley did an amazingly thorough job cleaning my teeth. They feel great! She even put my favorite music on 😉 I haven’t needed to have work done by Dr Dores yet but when he came in to examine my teeth he was very gentle. Highly recommend!

I absolutely hate the dentist! The most you could ever get me to do was just a regular scheduled cleaning. But Dores Dental COMPLETELY changed my experience. I’ve literally gone about 4 times in the last two months to get work done that was past due and well needed. He makes me “Not scared of the dentist”. I would definitely recommend Dr. Dores to any and everyone. Also the staff is super friendly. I’m so happy I decided to come here.

I was looking for a new dentist. I wanted to find a place that had the newest technology, a friendly staff and painless treatment! I found the place. I am a baby when it comes to going to the dentist and I have no more concerns. I had a crown done on my very first treatment it was all done in a day and I did not experience any pain! Don’t walk run to this place you’ll have a great experience!

I was so nervous to go to the dentist. My husband changed to Dores Dental and said to try Dores Dental. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the staff is from the front end ladies who gave me a tour of the place with a smile, to the hygienist who cleaned my teeth to Doctor Doris coming in to meet me and check out my teeth after Brittany cleaned them. I was so happy to leave with a smile knowing I found my place for my teeth from today until forever~ Thank you to all that made me smile today 🙂

I had a cavity filled at this recent visit, which can usually be an anxious experience. However, Dr. Dores and the entire staff made this a pain-free visit. The front office is extremely efficient in their check-in process and the updated dental technology made the visit quick and professional. I am so happy to be a patient here!

This was my first visit to Dores Dental and it was very pleasant. The staff was wonderful from the time I walked in the door. I was greeted with 2 very friendly front desk staff, I was given a tour of the facility and even a gift from Dr. Dores himself. My wait time was very minimal, and I was actually worked into their schedule to accommodate a sudden change in my insurance. Dr. Dores, as well as the assistants were extremely patient, knowledgable and explained every procedure to me, as well as gave me breaks to ensure that I was comfortable (and also allowed him to see other patients). I will definitely be back and will be referring my children as well.

Dores Dental is the most caring and friendly dental office. My children and I go to Dores Dental for all our dental needs. My three children have Invisalign on there teeth and they have a great experience every time they visit the office. The women that work there are so polite and friendly. They have become an extension of our family. Thank you so much for being in our lives.

So growing up I’ve always dreaded going to the dentist. I had scary experiences as a kid and even as an adult I would get panic attacks with the thought of going to see a dentist. What can I say? I’ve always been a wuss when it comes to teeth pain. I was due for a root canal and crown recently and one of my family members recommended me this place . I don’t even have words to describe how friendly the staff are and how much of a caring dentist Dr. Dores is. He and his assistants will calm down all your concerns and make sure you’re as comfortable as possible. They’re not aggressive when they’re all in your teeth at all and they make sure you’re not in any pain. I’ve never been to a dentist that actually cares about how you feel. I am a new patient, i JUST walked in one day for a consultation appt and the next week I got my root canal and crown done that SAME day. Phenomenal service. Excellent staff. I wish I knew more people to recommend this place. All I can say is if anyone needs a dentist that actually knows what they’re doing and are careful , I will definetly recommend this practice. Clean facility. Very prompt and organized. They also give you a treat like a freshly baked cookie after your appt in case you’re a sweet tooth. Awesome place. Thanks you guys!!

Gilrolanel F. from Springfield, MA (Source: Yelp)


GilRolanel Fontanez and Olga rivera Gomez we are so thankful for your kindness and tender care you always have shown to me and specially my mom due to her age. Is nice to know that we can always count on you that special treatment that I haven’t seen anywhere else only here. I totaly recomend to everyone to come to your office for that kind of special treatment and specialty.

DORES DENTAL, I’m kind of a new patient with them so far I had deep cleanings done , I have no complaints you walk in your greeted with a smile, the receptionist are great they treat you like they’ve known you, the hygienist is very gentle with you and I’m glad I have them as my new dentist now

Have been going to this practice for close to 4 years after my dentist of 40 years retired, and my experience has been nothing but excellent from the moment you walk through the door till your appointment is complete. Dr. Dores takes great care in making sure you are comfortable and does great work. Not one problem with any of the work he has done for me .. Love that I can get a crown in a day !!

Maureen K. from Cranston, RI (Source: Yelp)


I am a patient of Dores Dental. This is a wonderful practice. The staff is extremely warm and hospitable, the office is impeccable, and the dental equipment is top of the line. My husband had a cap, which took only a few hours instead of a few months to do. It came out fantastic. I just had my teeth whitened. I am amazed at how great my teeth look now. They were very yellow but now are white again. Diane, the dental assistant, walked me through every step of the one hour process. She made me very comfortable and even gave me a take-home package with  a brightener for when I need it, and with a vial for sensitivity in case I need it, but I am happy that my teeth are not sensitive at all during or after the whitening process. Thank you Diane and Dores Dental. Now I can smile into a mirror without saying ugh!

Andrea B. from Longmeadow, MA (Source: Yelp)


Thrilled about my switch to Dores Dental. My hygienist, Elman, was terrific and so was Dr. Dores. I’m not even afraid to come back to have my tooth filled. Thursday bonus = Tucker the puppy mascot. Three weeks later: had a tooth filled. Laser used, NO NEEDLE needed!!! Great experience. Highly recommend.

Alexandria L. from Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


From beginning to end, this was the greatest experience I have ever had at a Dentist’s office. Even recieving the news that I needed some work done wasn’t as crushing coming from Dr. Dores. Who, by the by, personally called the night before my apointment welcoming me to the practice. UNHEARD OF. I was given a full tour and everyone that worked there was Aces. Either they really love their job or they are all huffing the silly gas. I’m pretty sure it’s the first one. There were beverages in the waitng room and I even recieved a gift bag. Do not look any further if you are in need of a dentist. This is the place!

Mike B. from East Longmeadow, MA (Source: Yelp)


Very professional the staff is amazing very kind and friendly. They always make sure you are comfortable. Doctor Dores is awesome he does outstanding work and always puts the patients best interest first, he takes the time to explain what work needs to be done and how long/ what the dental work involves.

I can’t stress enough how wonderful everyone is here! This place is amazing! The rooms are a good size, their chairs are comfortable and I love the fact they put whatever music you would like on so that you feel relaxed! Dr. Dores and his staff are so patient with kids and people who get anxious with dentists! I am extremely lucky I found this place and I am telling you, if you want a clean, professional and completely trustworthy dentist, call and make an appointment here because you will walk out smiling!

My back two teeth (molar and wisdom) flared up at 6:30 at night and Dores Dental was the only place open. I called ahead and drove there, never been a patient there before. They took me right in, quickly took care of my paperwork and info and had me in a chair getting examined and taken care of within minutes. They extracted two teeth after they were supposed to close for the day and did it with AMAZING attitudes and kindness. I was treated wonderfully and I would recommend everyone to go there. The level of concern for their patients and the kindness they displayed was professional and comforting. If I could give more stars I would, best place around. 100% would recommend.

Dr Dores did such an amazing job on my teeth starting with the deep cleaning of my gums I used to get blood every time I brushed now I don’t. I was embarrassed to smile due to my cavities which he fixed. And now he has put a crown that looks amazing. Such a friendly place the atmosphere is great he has such a calming voice that takes away the nerves. And the staffing also. I love Nina such a friendly receptionist. I’m already recommending others starting with my husband ❤️❤️❤️

At 72 years of age, I thought I was too old to start Invisalign, but Dr. Dores encouraged me to “go for it” to straighten out my crooked teeth and to fix my bite. After 50 weeks of treatment, I have a beautiful smile and I can eat on both sides of my mouth. As an added benefit, I got into the habit of not eating between meals, so I have lost 20 pounds. I am so grateful to Dr. Dores and to Invisalign for giving me more confidence and quite possibly adding more quality time to my life.

I was referred to Dores Dental by a coworker and when I first got to the office I was SO SCARED. The office is amazing…the staff is so nice and I left with a great treatment plan.!!! come see them they are the best!

Dr Dores and his team are fantastic! They took my elderly 95 year old Mother, with dementia, and welcomed her into the office. I was so pleased with the way they treated her with respect and dignity. So kind and compassionate…. They helped when I was faced with an emergency situation. I will forever be grateful to them, and the wonderful job they did to help her get out of her pain ! Five stars, highly recommended!!!!

I have been coming to Dores Dental for five years. The Doctor and staff are polite, wonderful and caring. They take time with you, giving the care you need. I always have a good visit and would recommend Dores Dental highly whether just looking for a new dentist or just moved to the area and are in search of one. Donna Bailey, East Longmeadow MA
