Awful...This dentist tried to sell me everything but the building!!!
He is awful to his staff, abrupt, rude and has no bedside manner. I can't believe he is even allowed to practice dentistry.
Stay away!!!!

Business Response:

We are in the business of repairing and preventing dental disease. We do not sell anything. As with any dental office, we provide a service and are paid an appropriate fee for that service. Unfortunately, today's dental plans are quite limited and provide a benefit which covers only a percentage of the service fee. We offer payment plans to help our clients afford their portion of financial responsibility. Dentally neglected patients who present with discomfort and demand immediate service without taking physical or financial responsibility are never satisfied. The patients condition is due to their own dental treatment decisions. The dental office makes treatment recommendations, but it is up to the patient to decide what treatment they want to obtain and is within their financial means.

"Annoying discomfort in one of my molars during a recent Friday was pain by Sunday. Big problem: my home and dentist are in Michigan. I'm living temporarily in Agawam on a job assignment. I fortunately found this website and reviews for several dentists, including Dr. Zive (Court St. Family Dentistry). First thing Monday I phoned Dr. Zive's office because one review indicated he would come to his office for emergencies outside of office hours and that he personally answered or returned patient calls. I got his answering service, however, and nearly hung up when I learned he was on holiday that week. Despite my protest that I didn't want to disturb his vacation, the service said he would call me within the hour, which he did. He listened to my problem and told me without hesitation to meet him at his office in Westfield. When I got there I was second in line to a little girl who'd chipped her tooth over the weekend. The bottom line: Dr. Zive effectively treated my problem that morning (severe gum infection) and I was back to normal before the end of the week. The following Monday I was in his office again for a complete exam and followup treatment. I have gingivitis and missed a treatment by my Michigan dentist due to my extended travel. Dr. Zive and his excellent hygienist came to the rescue heroically in my view, with compassion, a sense of urgency and thorough professionalism. Dr.'s equipment and his techniques are the latest, and the dental-chair-side manner of he and his staff are as warm and friendly and competent as you will ever find. I have an excellent dentist in Michigan of similar caliber against whom I'm measuring my impression of Dr. Zive and his staff. I recommend Court Street Family Denistry to anyone in-a-throbbing-tootache (or hearbeat)."

Finding a good dentist these days can be a difficult task. Eureka, I've finally found the best. Dr. Zive is caring, gentle, efficient and painless. He focuses on quality rather than quantity, unlike my many previous dentists. I was amazed at how simple and comfortable the root canal was and the single visit crown was incredible to watch and fit perfectly. This office is highly recommended.

Yes the transition has been an adjustment! Dr Liptak and Dr Zive are two very different personalities. After sticking it out for awhile Dr Zive has proved he is a very skilled and caring dentist. It takes a bit to get to know him but he is a very good dentist.

Change was hard. Dr. Zive followed a tough act. Tim Liptak was an excellent dentist. We were a little apprehensive during the transition, but we have had several opportunities now to get to know him. I think he has proven himself to be a professional & skillful dentist, and our family is developing a trust in him and his staff. It's too bad his first impression wasn't great with the other reviewer, and I hope this isn't a typical first impression for him. I bet he would be receptive to suggestions you may have. I'm sure he wants to be successful.

Message from Court Street Family Dentistry

Located in the heart of Westfield, Massachusetts, we are a modern, full service general dental practice. Dedicated to the health of families in our community,

we offer a full range of dental services to patients of all ages.



Welcome to a modern dental office which offers the highest quality of care available. We use the finest dental materials and technologies to provide our patients with a relaxed and comfortable dental experience. We offer digital radiographs for high resolution imaging with dramatically reduced radiation exposure.

Doctor Zive and our CEREC System were featured on the Health Matters report by ABC40 News Springfield. Many people fear their semi-yearly trips to the dentist. The prospect of a cavity and the dreaded reality of a filling weigh heavily on many minds. Add in the possible need for a crown or veneer to repair damaged teeth, the dental visit quickly goes to the bottom of the to do list.

Thankfully, innovation in dentistry has made tooth restoration easier, more convenient, more accurate and overall less worrisome for patients. Our practice features the CEREC® Crown System which provides for on-site creation of natural-looking ceramic fillings �?? in a single visit. We use a digital camera to take an optical impression of the damaged tooth, design the appropriate restoration using CAD software and mill tooth-colored ceramic on-site in about 10 minutes. There�??s no need for a temporary and return visit. From tooth preparation to placement and bonding, a patient can have his or her smile restored in less than an hour.

While patients are most interested in the attractive quality of the final result and the time-saving approach, health professionals laud the conservative treatment plans made possible by CEREC. Advanced bonding techniques and precise restoration design allow me to salvage more of the healthy tooth material, creating a stronger, more natural result.

All patients receive Oral Cancer screenings at each visit. We use the OralCDx Brush Test for easy and painless identification of common red and white oral spots.
