If you're new to our dental practice, take a minute to learn more about Dr. Cormier and our dedicated team members so you'll feel right at home when you arrive. We look forward to meeting you!

Dr. Jim Cormier

A native of Maine, Dr. Cormier is thrilled to be providing the highest level of care for patients in Kennebunk and neighboring communities. At a young age, he knew he wanted to be a dentist. He loved working with his hands, was passionate about studying medicine, and thrived when helping people.

Dr. Cormier attended the University of New England (UNE), where he received his Bachelor of Science in Medical Biology. Upon graduating, he became quite the accomplished researcher working for UNE and a startup biotech company, focusing on pain management and drug discovery. Dr. Cormier published several articles containing essential research findings on chronic pain and ways to manage it. He has found his research background has served him well in helping patients to manage their own pain by providing them with the latest advances in medicine.

After working several years in the research field, Dr. Cormier enrolled in UNE’s Dental school and graduated with his Doctorate of Dental Medicine. During his time at UNE, he did a rotation at Goodwin Community Health, treating low-income patients. Dr. Cormier is humbled to have been the recipient of several scholarships for his clinical skills, public service, and academic performance.

With his background in pain management, Dr. Cormier takes proper steps in managing the comfort of each of his patients throughout their care at Mousam River Dentistry. Dr. Cormier emphasizes preventative care and his patients take an active role in developing a comprehensive, personalized approach to promote overall health. Dr. Cormier is always accepting new patients and we do our best to see same day emergencies. We look forward to welcoming your family to our dental home.

Away from work

Dr. Cormier’s patients are his top priority, but when he’s not at the office, you can find him enjoying all that Maine has to offer in the great outdoors. Dr. Cormier is married to his wife Krissy where they reside in Saco with their daughters, Hannah and Amelia, and their black lab, Denali. Together, they enjoy hiking, skiing, and playing pickleball.

Dr. Alex Tooher

Dr. Tooher began his career as a software engineer after obtaining his undergraduate degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering from the University of Maine in 2012. After 4 years in the field, he knew he was missing the passion that comes with truly feeling like he was making a difference. Volunteering at the Preble Street Learning Collaborative was where he discovered dentistry. The immediate ability to make a positive impact in a patient's life combined with the creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving skills required to provide the highest standard of care was what truly made Dr. Tooher fall in love with the profession.

 

Dr. Tooher has found great joy in dentistry and helping improve the lives of others. He hopes his work will lead him to find more ways to make a positive impact in the community he serves. He enjoys all aspects of dentistry, specifically seeing the journey and improvements that come from completing large rehabilitation cases. He is passionate about patient education and providing his patients with the tools to maintain good oral health. Dr. Tooher is a life-long learner and is thrilled to call Mousam River Dentistry his home.

 

Dr. Tooher has firm roots in Maine, having attended elementary school through high school on Stevens Ave in Portland. When he is not practicing, he enjoys staying active, exploring the outdoors, and enjoying all Maine has to offer with his family, friends, and loved ones.

I was nervous about going back to the dentist after many years. Dr. Cormier and the wonderful staff at Mousam River Dentistry immediately made me feel comfortable, and provided me with excellent care.  I’ve since recommended them to a number of friends and family that are looking for a dentist. Thank you Dr. Cormier!
