Hello from Dr. Steve Scannell, Dr. Keith Hollinger, and their team! Welcome to our blog! You typed “dentist in 01028” into the search engine, and here we are! We have been in East Longmeadow for years and decided that a blog would help further our mission to bring people their essential dental care. You might be asking yourself, “Why would I read a dental blog?” The easy answer comes in the form of another question, “Do you have teeth and would you like to know how to keep them healthy and beautiful?” If yes, this blog will be your best source of information. While you can always scour the internet to get a general idea of what dentistry has to offer, this blog will enable you to know exactly what your local options are. First, let’s meet your long-serving dentist in East Longmeadow.
Meet Dr. Steve Scannell
Dr. Scannell attended the SUNY at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine and got his doctoral degree in 1988. He maintains active memberships in professional organizations such as the American Dental Association, Massachusetts Dental Society, Valley District Dental Society, and the University of Buffalo Dental Alumni Association. As a father to 3 boys and Boy Scout volunteer, he understands the need for a gentle touch and thorough preparation to effectively help his patients every day.
Meet Dr. Keith Hollinger:
Dr. Hollinger received his dental degree from the prestigious Tufts University, and has been helping patients smile for over 23 years. He has received special training in orthodontics, treating sleep disorders, and managing chronic jaw pain. He shares a particular empathy with his orthodontic patients as he is currently performing treatment on himself with braces!

Using advanced technology, your crown can be designed, milled, and placed in just an hour.

Sleep Apnea Therapy: People who suffer from sleep apnea or are CPAP intolerant can now get simple, non-invasive treatment with oral appliance therapy.

They are easy to use, and can dramatically increase the quality of your sleep tonight.
Personal Care: It’s important for us to form a positive relationship with our patients. This will make it much easier for them to come to the office, and more open to ask their questions and share concerns.
