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.

Dr. Margaret Palmer

Dr. Palmer joins us from Scarborough, Maine where she was raised and still currently resides. Dr. Palmer grew up with a mother in the dental field which helped guide her to pursue an education in the rewarding field of dental medicine.

Dr. Palmer attended the University of New England where she earned her undergraduate degree in medical biology. After graduating in 2015, she directly attended dental school at the University of New England College of Dental Medicine. Dr. Palmer completed two dental rotations during her graduate training, one in Lancaster, New Hampshire and one in Brattleboro, Vermont. The externship rotations helped guide her to love private practice and the patient relationships that can be developed.

After graduating dental school, Dr. Palmer continued on to a one-year advanced education in general dentistry (AEGD) residency program, which she completed at Togus- the Maine Veteran’s Affairs hospital in Augusta, Maine. During this time, she was able to gain additional patient experience and education as well as hands on experience with different types of procedures across multiple dental disciplines.

Dr. Palmer is looking forward to beginning this new chapter at Mousam River Dentistry as well as having the opportunity to meet and work with all the wonderful patients from the community. She prides herself on comprehensive care in order to give everyone a healthy and beautiful smile that they can be proud of. When Dr. Palmer is not in the office, you can find her enjoying Maine’s mountains, beaches and dining out at restaurants with friends and family.

Randy

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!
