Not many years ago, losing a tooth left you with few options for replacement. While permanent teeth should provide a lifetime of function, it doesn’t always end up that way.

The entire staff and Dr Criss were very pleasant from the moment I walked into the door until I checked out. Dr Criss has a caring approach and a genuine concern for me as a patient. He took the time to educate me about my condition and I walked away with a better understanding of treatment options. I was very pleased with the entire encounter and would not hesitate in referring my family and friends to his practice. Top notch doc !

Great customer service! Very thorough and detailed. Care plan was clearly laid out and all appointments scheduled before I left their office. Genuinely seemed to care about my well-being. Everyone was upbeat and personable. Dr. Peterson even asked if Kaitlyn took good care of me and happily I could say absolutely! Glad I switched to this dentist office.

Dr Peterson made sure I was comfortable before anything started. I have a huge phobia of dentists and they made sure I felt relaxed upon my arrival. Also the dentist assistant went out of her way to make sure i was also comfortable. Brought me a blanket, juice and kept checking in on me throughout the whole procedure.
