Meet Dr. James Dores

Longmeadow, MA dentist Dr. James Dores loves to help dental patients. That is true whether they are getting treated at Dores Dental or in the rain forest of Peru, where he served on a dental mission trip.

He also enjoys hosting an annual Dentistry from the Heart event, in which his office provides thousands of dollars’ worth of free dental care to patients who otherwise would not be able to receive it.

A native of Rhode Island, Dr. Dores has never left New England. For more than seven years, he has practiced general and family dentistry in the central and western parts of Massachusetts.

Dr. Dores completed his general dentistry residency at the UCONN Health Center in Farmington, CT in 2006. He joined the practice of Drs. Leveton and Leiter in Longmeadow, MA in 2010.
