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 !
