Meet the Team
They can expect professionalism from the time they come through the door to the time they leave. They can expect a family oriented office, they can expect us being very professional with them, like I said. We give tours for them, we tell them a little bit about the office so they get knowledge about the office, they get a little gift from the office; they get to meet the hygienist, they get to meet the doctor personally. On many levels, they get a lot of experience from the beginning to the end of the practice, I think that we do a very good job of portraying a very good office. I interact with patients – I feel very well – they have a level of trust with me because they’ve seen me for such a long time. Even the new patients, they have a level of trust, communication is well with them with me, very comfortable, family oriented, they feel that. So we’ve got that whole atmosphere here in the office.
JoanneLead Dental Assistant
Joanne has been with this dental practice since day one. Her experience (and all of the benefit that it brings) is unparalleled. Joanne has completed a significant amount of certifications and continuing education including OSHA, HIPAA, infection control, and the many courses related to her dental assistant license. She genuinely loves her patients and loves helping them have a healthier smile. When Joanne is away from the office, she enjoys spending time with her family.
I enjoy working for Dr. Dores in the aspect that this isn’t just a job for me, it’s more of a profession, and he allows me to extend my services to the patients. I don’t think of it as a job. I can be as professional as I want to be here, he doesn’t put us on a time limit, to a degree, he wants us to treat our patients the best that we can to get them going in the right direction for their best oral health. That’s something that I strive for. He allows the time for us to spend with our patients, which a lot of practices don’t allow, so that’s important to me. We also won the patient’s choice award for the best dental practice in the area, so that for us was a huge achievement, something that we strive for for quite some time, and we’re proud to tell our patients that. There’s a reason why we’re at the top, we worked hard to get there.

Cori has been working in the dental field since 2009. She is a registered and certified dental assistant, but Cori joined our Dores Dental team as a patient coordinator in 2017.
