Took my two kids, ages 3 and 1, to Dr. Crippen this morning for what was the first dental visit for both of them. It was, by far, the best experience I’ve ever had at any dental office in my life. The entire place, from the excellent staff to thoughtful decorations/amenities to Dr. Crippen himself, is all geared towards making kids comfortable and happy.
My three-year-old absolutely hates people touching and prodding him, but Dr. Crippen and his amazing staff knew exactly what to do to put him at ease. I watched in disbelief as my son let Dr. Crippen apply flouride directly to my son’s teeth with no complaints whatsoever–I was prepared for a total meltdown. Even my one-year-old did much better than I thought he would They each walked away with balloons and prizes, and immediately after walking out the door, my three-year-old literally exclaimed “i love going to the dentist”.
Five stars doesn’t even do this place justice; you will not find a better pediatric dentist on earth.
