Your overwhelming positive dentists in West Springfield, MA.
Gary Archambault, D.M.D
Dr. Gary Archambault grew up in nearby Chicopee, MA. As an undergraduate, Dr. Archambault was a microbiology major. His particular interest was the study of bacteria and viruses and the role in infections and transmissibility.
Dr. Archambault went to Tuft University School of Dental Medicine receiving his D.M.D. degree. Upon graduation, he served as a volunteer general dentist at the Belchertown State School in addition to entering private practice.
He is particularly interested in minimally-invasive dental technologies. He worked with Kreativ Corporation developing dental protocols and an educational format for other dentists. Consequently, he became a dental educator teaching other dentists minimally-invasive dental techniques. Dr. Archambault also got involved with Schick Dental Technologies aiding in the development of digital radiography.
Dr. Archambault remains active with his alma mater, Tufts University, and speaks at and participates in their doctor/dental student mentoring program.
‘‘My family has been seeing Dr. Archambault for 30+ years and he is the very best. Last week I had a problem with a tooth that was discovered during a routine cleaning and he not only explained the treatment but made time that very day to do the procedure even though it wasn't an emergency.”
Cole Archambault, D.M.D
Dr. Cole Archambault grew up here in West Springfield, MA. Dr. Cole earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with academic honors from Tufts University. During his undergraduate studies, he served as the editor-in-chief for the undergraduate bioethics journal, which published his article “An Exploration of Dental Health Disparities in America.”
Our dentist earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D) degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, where he was the recipient of the Walter S. Barr Fellowship. He is currently on track to earn the prestigious Fellowship of the Academy of General Dentistry, which involves a significant commitment to continuing education.
Dr. Cole Archambault’s treatment philosophy centers on taking the time to explain all treatment options to his patients and fully discuss the benefits of each option. His approach emphasizes saving teeth whenever possible, but he is also happy to use state-of-the-art implant restorations to replace teeth when needed.
Dr. Cole Archambault currently lives in Northampton, MA with his wife Maris and their golden retriever Sienna.
‘‘This is the first time in my life I have never been afraid of the dentist! No anxiety no matter what the procedure! Everything is explained thoroughly and the delivery is with an amazing chair side manner! Dr. Cole Archambault is literally the best!” - Patient S.W.
Dr. Cole was my dentist and was very personable and professional. Dr. Cole did a complete inspection of my teeth and explained on the x-ray screen which areas should be treated. I scheduled a follow-up appointment to have a cavity fixed with Dr. Cole and have complete confidence in his work. My wife has had work done also with Dr. Cole and felt very comfortable and stated she so happy that we switched over to this great dentist office.”
